I haven't suited up in two years. I don't even remember where I used my waders and boots last. At the way I'm using this gear it will last forever or fall apart from lack of use. I don't have to wade. Most of my fishing is done from the bank. I can't walk very far anyway. My wheels are shot. Edit: Hell, I don't even get wet in the summer time. If I happen to get my feet wet, it is just to cool off.
