Does any one have any experience with these?

Or should I spend a little more for these?

I have an old pair of Cabela's neoprene waders that work alright, just starting to leak a little. They have held up well though! I have had them since 2009:shock: I have a $50 Cabela's gift card That I need to put to use and I am just trying to decide what the best thing to use it on is!

Thanks in advance!

I would spend a little bit more for the Cabelas brand. Herter's is actually owned by Cabelas and uses their name in advertising in the Midwest where Herter's was a recognized waterfowling name. Since Cabelas bought Herter's, they haven't updated the products Herter's used to sell and IMO, will eventually get rid of the name altogether.

Maybe I am a bit jaded though, as I loved the Herter's burlap dekes and when Cabelas bought them out, that was the first thing on the chopping block.:mad:

It may be worth a trip to Cabela's to handle them and try them on if you're ever in the area. I personally never buy waders or footwear without trying them on. I looked at both tonight at the Lehi store and opted for the Cabela's brand because they have more comfortable straps, better knee padding/reinforcement, and mostly because the boots fit me better. The herters waders didn't give me a bad impression at all, but they were more basic and didn't seem quite as sturdy.
