I went ahead and got a pair for my wife and myself.

Magellan's are a good choice for a first timer. I have the cheap(er) simms with the zipper so I can whiz without taking them off. But I wade alot. I do like the frogg togg boots though. Very light weight and comfortable. Upgrade when and if you see fit. Fishing is more important that what you use so get out there.

Good waders and a very good price.

One tip I'll give you about breathable waders. When you are done with them be sure you dry them out well on both sides. I usually hang them up and let them dry for a day and then turn them inside out and make sure the inside dries out totally as well. Even when I am wearing them several days in a row I try to rinse the outside off well with fresh water and hang them up to dry out as much as possible between uses. If you don't dry the inside out the feet will get super funky and the breathable fabric can mildew which can kill them.

Would you recommend getting a boot dryer?

No. While it won't hurt them there just isn't a reason to unless you have bootfoot waders. They dry quickly and really well just by hanging them up. Let one side dry, turn inside out and let the other side dry. There is no real reason to use a boot dryer. I have one and never use it on my stockingfoot waders.

Most issues come from letting the outside dry and then folding them up and putting them up with the inside still damp. It can cause the seam tape to come loose and can cause mildew which can wreck the super thin breathable membrane.

One other thing, it is almost always better to store them by hanging them up than by folding them up and store them inside the house during the hot months if you can. Baking in a super hot boat shed all summer can be tough on them.

Now I know I said to only get breathable waders, but there is one thing I will say about neoprene.

Since my Frogg Toggs finally started leaking, my buddy let me borrow a back up pair of his that are neoprene stockingfoot when we went down to POC a few weeks ago.

It was really cold most the time and I will say, I was much happier to wear those neoprene's than breathable. I'm 100% fine wearing breathable in cold water, I have before no issue, just layer up. But those neoprene's kept my whole body nice and toasty.
