Medium LONGS are still too short

Verified Buyer Reviewed by John W from Billings MT on Wednesday, September 10, 2014
I'm 5-9 175lbs and as the headline says, even the Medium-Longs are not long enough in the legs. Standing still is fine but any upward bending of the knees pulls and stresses the seams in the butt, back and thighs. I 'm almost certain the spec chart said said MLs would fit 34-36 inch inseam. I'm a 32 or 33. Quality of the product is very nice, but waders have to fit right. I have a pair of Simms Headwaters medium regulars that are perfect. They seem to be the only company that gets the legs right. Anyone with a 32 inch inseam or longer should get a large with these - assuming the legs are manufactured longer in a large than medium-longs are - but then the upper body is probably going to be a tad high and baggy unless you're closer to 5-11 and 190 pounds. I do see another reviewer at 6-1' says his MLongs fit except for the tight feet. Buying waders online is such a crapshoot. I've sent back two pairs of Patagonias here, two to Orvis (not here) and now these. The prices are just too tempting with a DealFlyer coupon at STP. If you are reading this in Sept of 2014, do the right thing and spend the money on the Simms Headwaters waders here for $229. Made in Bozeman MT and a great deal on the best waders made in all sizes. Like Apple products, Simms does not discount their waders. The Headwaters are $350 everywhere, though stores like Cabelas will drop them 10-20% sometimes. Not to $229 though.
