    Horne make great waders and they are available in waist or thigh length. I prefer the thigh length and have used them for years when surf fishing in Winter. I don't wade to fish, I just like to stay dry and comfortable. Also, the thigh waders make those little rest stops on a cold night a lot easier when you don't have to take off most of your clothes. Have a look at

    Most good tackle stores stock Horne and will order in your particular size and style if they don't have them in stock. I got mine from Jones Tackle from memory.

    I have recently bought a set of chest and thigh waders from anaconda. 4mm thick and about 1/2 the price of "name" brands at around $100. Great warmth, especially here in vic, and they fit nicely. They are stitched pretty well and don't leak. They come with a repair kit as well.
    My mate has a pair for 3yrs now with no problem.
    I have worn them about 12 times now and no problem.
    I managed to get them on sale at 1/2 price , so i bought both types for $102

    How often do you need to buy new Hornes Tuna? or what do you do to them to need new ones?
    I got my pair of Horne waders around 10 years ago and (with 1 or 2 patches) they still going great. Best winter beach fishing investment I ever made.

    Hornes are good waders but are not the most comfortable around. Jump onto some of the US sites and check out the ranges of breathable lightweight waders. If you just want a cheap pair then the ones at Anaconda are good value. i know of a couple of serious beach fishos who have given their Hornes a miss in favour of the Anaconda offerings
