Cisco 3850 wont do PBR

Guys,

I am kinda in a bind here. We purchased over $100K worth cisco gear to redo our network. We purchased Two 3850 24Port layer 3 switches to act as our internal router stacked.

We have 2 ISP and we use 4 VLANS. We wanted to use 2 of the vlans to use one isp and the other 2 to use the other isp. According to cisco engineers before the purchase of equipment, it was suggested to use PBR.

Now that we have the equipment and when i tried to setup a PBR it didnt work. I called cisco support and it turns out there is a bug with that IOS version (which is the current version) which doesnt allow PBR. There is no workaround and it will be fixed in the next release. That could be months.....

We then decided to use HSRP, and that is also not supported by 3850.

I am dead in the water here guys. Need help/advise ASAP as to what i can try and do next. I have to use 2 ISP and also these 2 ISPs will also act as failover for each other.  These are the requirenments..

Any suggestions?
