If you have a US mailbox, I recommend LL Bean. All there stuff comes w/ a lifetime warranty. I bought their low end waders a while ago, had a leak over a year later and exchanged them w/ no problem. Even after I had aquaseal on it.

With the bad exchange rate right now, the Flyweight may be the only ones in your price range.

Use Ship happens they charge 4 dollars per parcel and its a 2 min walk across Sumas border if ya don't have a us postal box!!

Lots of options for US boxes in Blaine or Pt. Roberts. Whichever is closet to you. Some charge a monthly fee, others, just a per package fee.

I bought the Hodgman H3 series from Army Navy for 115, and matching boots for another 100$. I've used them quite a bit and I'm pretty happy with them. I've never had anything else mind you, but I've done a lot of bushwalking with no leaks except a self inflicted puncture from falling on my ass.

As for the boots, I might be looking into something with more grip than felt soles.

Anyway, that fits your budget and will get you in the water even if you won't look as cool as the Simms clad
