Must all waders leak after one year of use?
I took back my waders yesterday to where I bought them . Since they were a little over a year old I was hoping they would tell me to just take another box off the shelf and send me on my way.
I was using my warranty issue as a moment of truth with the company in question. They instead told me they would ship them back for repair for $30 bucks which isn't bad but we are getting into prime time and going without or wearing sub par back ups is frustrating for a period of 2 weeks or longer. I do have back ups but what a pain.
I told the guy that there was faulty taping on both neoprene footies that were leaking. He questioned me "do you use them a lot?" Should that be the issue? Should you have to buy a product and use it less or not at all for it not to fail in one year?
So let me know what you think.
Is the universalism that all waders fail after one year acceptable to consumers?
Are we a civilization that puts men into space and rescues miners below the earth unable to create a wader that lasts for more than one year?
Am I to upgrade from $300 plus dollar waders to $600 dollar plus waders to find satisfaction with a product?
Is this done by the manufacturer on purpose so we come back every year to blow more money?
Is there any pride left in manufacturing a good quality product?
Have a great week and catch some fish......................
