New cabelas guidwear pro & L.L bean Helix waders

Any of y'all have any experience with any of these two "EXACT" products. I would love to get some feedback on the helix from anyone who owns them. They look great but so do the cabelas. I am aware of the guarantees offered by both companies, I really would like to hear about performance...I wish there was a store within 60 miles but alas.

I just sent my Cabelas Pro Guide for for evaluation because of the bad

leak and for shoe eyelets failing out of the boots. They said it will take up

to three weeks for a decision.confused.gif

Scooby-

 

I have a pair of the Helix waders- they're very comfy and more or less bombproof.

 

I do have a couple of minor complaints though. The first is that because of the way they're built the front pockets are separate, so warming your hands in there doesn't work as well as it could with a single connected pocket. I also feel like the waders in general are a bit higher than I'd prefer. I don't wade deep, so this might be a plus for you if you do - they're the highest waders I think I've ever owned.

 

The back support belt is a nice idea, but I never wore mine, so I can't say how it really works.

 

Overall, I'm pretty happy with 'em.

I just ordered the ll bean helix on saturday should be arriving soon.

 

as far as boot foot, simms with the muck boots look nice, as well as the orvis.

Effy's has the simms on salel for cheeeeeeeeeeeeeep! last i had seen around $200. great deal.
