I've got a buddy who's committed to his first season of waterfowling this year. He's pretty much set up with everything a newbie would need with the exception of waders. I was doing some research for him and was pretty blown away by the prices nowadays. I know what I like, but I'm a little hesitant to recommend an expensive set for his first pair. He's tried on some neoprenes and breathables, and seems to prefer the breathables. Any suggestions?
