No need to appoligize. Even if James used the waders only once, he could recover more of his money by selling a decent pair of waders than a cheap pair. This is the time of year to buy waders as the stores are discounting them to clear out the fishing stuff to make way for fall and winter stuff. I use my waders for photography and fishing, so I use them frequently. To me, a decent pair of waders are as vital to photography as a good tripod. A good pair of polypro longjohns under a good pair of neoprene waders and I am all set for photographing waterfowl and shorebirds from the water at their eye level. They don't seem as skittish when photographed that way.
