First...I have never reviewed an LL Bean product before because everything I have purchased from them is a clear four or five. Customer service is the best I have ever had anywhere....
...however, they kept asking me to review this, so I will. Have had many waders, salt water fly fish, and understand waders will leak. The way it is. Bought a pair in June 14 and first leak came after six uses. Foot seam and crotch. No pinholes either. Fairly large. First time ever I say I am not satisfied and they send me a new pair. LL Bean ruies! Two, yes two uses later...being even more careful than normal....leak in the crotch. Sigh. LL Bean is great, maybe I'm just snake bit on this purchase, but simply can't recommend it from my experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CaptDT Great value and great waders
Earlier this spring I took a bad fall and ripped my previous waders. Since I was leaving for an extended trip in two days and needed a new pair I stopped by one of the big box stores and purchased a pair of their name brand waders. Right from the very beginning I knew they were not going to last, and I was right.
As soon as I got back from my trip out west I purchased these Emerger II waders and only wish I had them a couple of months earlier. The seams are nice and tight and the neoprene foot ran true to my size.
For the money I do not believe you will find a better value.

My husband bought these not once but twice and both pair leaked.
Not a quality product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Troutbum71 Lightweight, tough and a bargain
Some years back I ordered Emerger I waders and they were everything I was looking for. Light weight, comfortable and tough. After many years of dependable service I decided to get a backup pair so I ordered the Emerger II waders. I took them on a fishing trip for a week. I wore them in some very cold water, climbed up some very steep hills with them and wore them on warm days. They performed extremely well. A good buy and I would buy them again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fishingjoe Great comfortable all year waders
Great comfortable all year waders. This is my second pair.
They hold very well in all kind of weather.
For the price, they should give you your money's worth!

Cheaply made. Not the quality you expect from Bean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tailfin1 worked out great!
At this price point almost all waders on the market are imported. The great difference is the L.L. Bean guarantee that made my decision for me. Just returned from 3 days of hard stream fishing in the Smokey Mountains, the waders performed great with no problems. Just remember that the chest area size runs a little tight so order accordingly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by nysteelheader not an upgrade
got these as an upgrade when I had to return my Kennebec waders that were leaking these are plain jane and a no frills or pockets like the Kennebec ones had no padded suspenders or wading belt don't understand how these are an upgrade just wish they would get the kennebecs back in stock so I can get rid of these!!! these are fine if you are going to use just a couple times a year for short periods.

Rated 5 out of 5 by UrNickname Very good, better than earlier version
A year or two ago I bought the Emerger 1 waders. Sure enough, this year when up to my waist in water, I discovered several leaks along the seams. I used a couple of tubes of Aquaseal to try to fix them; however, there were just too many.
I paid the difference when returning the old waders and got these and I am very happy.
Pros: fits better, great quality.
Cons: The belt clips cannot be removed from the belt which wold allow you to put things on the belt (bait container for example)
Great product w/ great return policy!
