wading trousers for launching

So, now that i'm a sib owner i guess im going to be getting wet launching unless someone can recommend the best quality wading trousers in the world at the cheapest price ever .

Not much to ask then ? (oh and the need to make them in fat B***** size)

Thanks in advance

I have a pair of peak storm dry pants work brilliantly about 140 if memory serves but would have thought chest waders would be the cheapest but not the most comfortable

Seconded I have the tourlite pants and would also recommend the Peak cags as well.....cos together they look well smart. Some good prices on eBay so worth a look

Having tried all sorts for sibbing... where I'm the one to get in at every launch/return and beach landing... I have settled on wetsuit trousers... https://www.wetsuitoutlet.co.uk/2017...74-p-8102.html

and these boots... https://www.wetsuitoutlet.co.uk/2017...6-p-15331.html

Proved to be perfect for the way I SIB.
