I began my fly fishing journey with a set of very reasonably priced ($200ish) Compass 360 Stillwater stocking foot chest waders. They are 4-layer polyester construction with Neoprene booties and marketed as breathable and waterproof. They have elastic gravel guards, a zippered pocket, hand warming fleece lined pass through pocket, suspenders and wading belt.
Of all the chest waders I looked at I still believe these are among the best value for money. I used them all last season without any trouble. I found them very comfortable in a wide variety of conditions and will definitely see service next season.
