Any recommendations for a pair of waders which will probably be used only half a dozen times a year for float trotting on a silty bed?
Bison haven't got the best reputation for quality. I'd get in touch with Diver Dave, he'll sort you out with some better than new, in a suitable size. Neoprene can get VERY hot in Summer. I'm totally sold on breathables.Thanks for the advice. I'm heading towards the Bison 5mm neoprene chest ones on Ebay.
Got a pair of vision ikons from Diver Dave a few years back! Fantastic and far better than the £400 Simms they replaced. Half the retail price at the time and supplied more or less made to measure.If you want chest waders, i can recommend Ikon waders. I have had a pair for 4 years and use regularly especially scrambling around small streams on Welsh borders: light and very comfortable to walk and wade in. They wash well with Nikwash products. More recently they have brought out a design with front zip which is useful. For some winter use, simply wear thermals underneath. A lot better than heavy neoprene.
