Excellent quality and the best bit - you can buy almost 3 pairs with your budget !

Very very tempted. What are the boots like? Will the waders fit comfortably over any boot or are they very much designed to go with the Bison boots?

Cheers chrisesox. The vision waders seem to be good value. I know the quality will be good as it is with all Vision stuff. I guess I'm just intrigued to know how good these Bisons are because they are at a heck of a price.

Its gotta be the Bisons. If I go for boots as well, which should I go for? The Bearclaw or regular boots?

My mate has a pair of Bisons, which I think he got on my recommendation - between 2 & 3 seasons old, and still going strong. Show up peat stains from the lakes we fish though - so he does look like he's shat himself. Still - who cares? haha. I will definitely be buying Bison's when I need a new pair.

Currently I have a pair of Grey GRXi and they are very good.

Despite it being my second season and some expensive kit, I still use the 25 bisons that are recommended for the servants that clean your moat or some such. In the recent hot weather they soak your clothes but only notice this when back at the car, that's despite active small-streaming. The boots are as firm as a pair of socks so they not for big boulder streams. I shall get some decent boots and the waders that go with them because of the terrain I am getting into but, in the main, waders is just one of the label things. Bit like designer handbags

Beryl, are you using the breathable waders, or are you sayings it's sweat? Or leaks?

Guideline kispiox are brilliant. Much more breathable than the visions, scierra etc in that bracket. Great stocking feet fitting too.
