as cabin boy said...no waders stay waterproof for too long....nax I've had is 2yrs out of a pair of breathable ones...

can I suggest you stay away from boot fit ones (welly type) and go for stocking foot and a pair of wading boots....the boots can then be used with any stocking foot waders....bison again have a deal on waist waders and wading boots for £99
BISON BREATHABLE WAIST WADERS COMPLETE WITH FELT OR RUBBER SOLE WADING BOOTS: Amazon.co.uk: Sports & Outdoors

if you don't want stocking foot then vass have some good waders..

I used the boot type for years then last year was given a pair of stocking foot.I use them with a pair of light weight steel toe cap work boots(ankle high)-really comfy and good grip.I find them lighter and less sweat prone than boot type.Of course you can always wear the boots and fold the waders up,walk to your mark then put them on.Just make sure the boots get a fresh water wash after use.

I'd recommend the Grey stocking foot, not to pricy at around £80-£90 and really light and comfortable.
Had mine a few years now and had no problems, get a pair of walking gaitors from Go Outdoors if you are going to be walking in rough undergrowth or wading in rocky areas, they will protect the waders around the ankles. A pick up a pair of boots that are a size bigger than your foot and wader size.
I've had 4 different types, 2 boot , 2 stocking, 2 neoprene, 1 rubber and the lightweight Greys.

Waders can cost a fortune so try and match the amount you are willing to spend to how often, and what you want from them. Avoid the boot type if you are going to be trecking long distances.

I have had Ocean chest waders for around 2 years and they were so good I bought the leg waders as well and yes they are just as good
