Closeouts. Named for the majestic Madison river that flows through Yellowstone National Park, Allen Co.'s Madison convertible stockingfoot waders have a waterproof breathable membrane and easily convert from chest height to waist height.

These waders are the first pair I have ever purchased and based on the size chart instructions I ordered a medium. My chest size is a 40, waist of 32 and shoe size of 9 wide. The waders fit perfectly from the waist down and the upper portion is huge on me. The biggest complaint I have is the upper straps have too much slack and not enough velcro section to tighten them up. If I were to wear a heavy flannel shirt and a coat I may be able to fill in the loose area but for summertime use that is not practical.

I will agree with Cabsav - if you're short, they might be too long...but I'm tall, and I thought the inseam might have even been a tad short for me. My other pair is a LONG pair, and they fit me better length-wise. Overall, I think these are great! The other person who said the suspenders don't have enough travel - that is also CORRECT! They are not the best design - but you can pull the straps out of the 3-way connector in back and spin them around and make them go all the way down and back up, and you can take up that slack pretty easy without having to McGyver them too badly. I bought them for 99% waist high wearing, and I like knowing that if I need to get a bit deeper, that option is always there. Great product - buy with confidence!

I'm impressed with Allen products and these are a better bargain than just waist waders with their bonus. I have other Allen gear, boots and belt, these are well made, thought out design and seem very durable. I can't afford the outfitters prices and these are a great value for me. I should have gotten these earlier.

great material. love the chest pocket and waist belt. easy to convert b/w chest and waist high. dont select your size off of the shoe size, it runs big in the chest and neoprene footies will stretch. i'm 5'11" 155lbs and size 11 shoe and went with a medium. this item lost stars for being larger in the chest than waders i have used before and the shoulder straps. the straps only have a small range velcro fasten and are still too long so i had to tape them.

These looked perfect until I tried them on. If you've got about a 35" + inseam you might be good to go, otherwise, they will droop way down below where they're supposed to. Not sure if this pair was poorly made or if this is the norm for this particular brand/pair of waders.
