Verified Buyer Reviewed by Monkey face from Liberalssuck on Friday, February 3, 2017For entry level waders these work great
Reviewed by mntroutfisherman from Minnesota on Wednesday, April 29, 2015I purchased a pair of these for Steelhead and trout fishing , they worked great the first day but the second day I noticed a trickle inside of my right leg. I hadn't even used the waders in brush or rough terrain like I usually fish. The third time I used them both legs were trickling it's gotten worse and at this point it seems I have more seam sealant and duct tape then actual wafer from the knees down.
Save your money and buy Simms G3's instead
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Mike O. from Texas on Monday, February 9, 2015Overall good quality but don't fit and...
They are humongous. I'm 6'-1", 170#, 41L suit size, 33" waist, 34" inseam, and 11" shoe. While the listed dimensions were a little large I figured they would work since I would be bundled up for very cold weather, but the listed dimensions were way off. The body and chest are 54". The inseam is 32" to the bottom of the gravel guards. The neoprene booties are 10.5" at best; with socks they are way too short. When I finally gathered the waist with the included belt - without belt loops to hold it in place - it pulled down the upper portion so the belt was around the chest worktable and pockets prohibiting access. The folds thus created would not keep out any water, which is one function of a belt. There is a drawstring at the very top but there is no way it could take up all the slack needed. It is waterproof as I tested under pressure and the seams are sealed and taped. They appear to be very good waders - except for no belt loops - and I'm sure they would do fine for a shorter person with fuller dimensions. I know your inventory is limited, I wish you had ones in my size, and that you had more - and correct - dimensions for sizing. FYI, I ended up getting a pair of White River 'Osprey' waders at Bass Pro Shop that were on sale for $90 plus tax. They have Regular, Stout, and Tall, with detailed dimensions on the box for Chest, Waist, Hip, Thigh, Inseam, and Front Rise. The only thing they were missing was the shoe size.
