Rated 5 out of 5 by Flyguide The Best Waders In The Game
I have had them all folks. These waders are simply the best in the game paired with a company who stands behind their product and return policy. Durable, lightweight and good looking.

My right foot recently began to leak. At first, I was disappointed, but when my coworker suggested I return them, following Bean's 100% guarantee, I began to think of all the abuse I've given these over 4 years of use in ecology work. Just a month ago, I walked over a mile over sharp glacial till without shoes in these things. I've spent hours walking off trail through the forest and had to do some rock climbing, again, without the shoes. The way I've treated these (harsher than most pants would stand up to) they should have sprang a leak in the first day! So I won't be trying to return these, but I will absolutely buy another pair when my next field season arrives.

My husband loves the feel, the look and the fit. Unfortunately, we are now returning our second pair. The right foot leaked on both pairs after a few wears. Hopefully the third will be a charm! As usual, LLBean is great to work with!

Wore these to stock trout and was pleased with the fit,comfort,and ease of getting on and off. Bought these to replace a competitors product and so far I like these better.

I own 3 sets of waders. Neoprene boot-foot for cold weather, gortex chest-highs and breathable waist highs. I had a competitors waist-highs for nearly 10 years and they recently hit the end of their life. After ordering a replacement set from the same company I returned them due to sizing....the same size I previously owned was rediculously large. I own other Been products and have always been happy with them so I decided to give the Emergers a try. LL Bean carries a lot of great products and their service is excellent. Arrived a day earlier than promised and I was able to use them for the first time last week. When I did the test fit at home after unpacking them, I immediately liked the fit and comfort. I'm not a big person but I am always concerned with sizing from a catalog order. I often fit in between a small and medium but these are great. A little extra length in the inseam and width in the thighs so they do not bunch or pull in the crotch when you bend and roomy enough to layer under for colder weather. As for the material quality, great value. Better quality than my previous pair and about $45 cheaper. Extra material where you need it for abrasions on rocks, brush or whatever and the back waistband sits slightly higher than the front which adds a bit more comfort and protection if you get too deep. I would definitely recommend these waders. For the price you get a great value and very effective pair of waist highs!

So far so good, be nice if there was a little pocket on the inside at the waist.

This is my second pair of Emerger waist waders. First lasted 4 years of weekly use and long hikes. Note: The new are better constructed neo. footwear, seams are on sides now instead of bottom to stretch and separate. If they last even less time then the first, I will buy them again. great wader for shallow water fishing. After 50 years of fly fishing and countless rugged hikes I highly recommend these waders. Tight lines.

Rated 2 out of 5 by 48Carol54George Two pairs leaked.
I used my first pair about ten times before I had a leak near the toe on my right foot. As usual; Bean sent me another pair without a charge. When I received the replacement pair, I had a leak near the left toe after only wearing them once. I retuned those and Bean sent me a third pair at no charge. I'm hoping this third pair is fine. I like the waste high waders and will continue to use them for sometime. I hope I don't need to replace the third pair.

Nice wader that is lightweight and comfortable to wear for hours. Not excessively bulky, easy to walk in to your favorite fishing hole.
