I will update soon as this Labor day will be doing plenty of trout fishing up in Western Carolina bushwacking and so forth- though I see no issues-

These waders fit very good and are very comfortable. I also recieved them in less than 48 hours with L.L.Bean's Free Shipping!!! Hope to get on the Salmon River soon and put them to some use!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Northeastfisherman Outstanding Purchase
Got these during a 10% sale, that made them a steal. Would have been a great purchase even at full price. These waders are actually comfortable. Go on and off easy. Bone dry. I am a big guy 5'11" 290 and it's not everyone who has a good selection for us bigger guys. Would highly recommend these to anyone. And when you call to ask a question or to place your order, you will be amazed at the friendly customer service. The very best customer service anywhere, hands down. Thank you LL Bean, again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Flyfisher1717 Good Quality Waders
So far they are dry and comfortable. I've just worn these once, but with the Bean warranty, I'm not worried about leaks showing up in a month or so, and that makes me confident evaluating them now. I especially like the roominess of the waders, which means they are easy to get on and off, and when winter comes all my fleece will fit easily underneath. The new wader belt design is nifty as well. Overall they seem well designed. I look forward to getting good use out of them, and the price was reasonable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Oregon55 Kennebec Waders... super product
Fit is great... not baggy but plenty of room in the waist and knees. Tried these out while July fishing for Summer Steelhead in Washington, and they did great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 86Celtics So far so good!
After exhaustive research online, I decided to go with the Kennebec waders for a couple reasons:
1. Never had any problems with any of LL Bean's products.
2. Waders are naturally prone to leak, no matter what the price tag is. I asked a few of the competitors what their warranties were and a I got a range of answers from 1 year to 3 years. I asked LL Bean what their expected lifespan of the waders were and how long they warranty them and the answer i got was "you decide what you feel a reasonable time period would be". I've always been a bean customer but even that response surprised me!
I've had them out on the river about 1/2 dozen times and not 1 ounce of moisture. I would, however, recommend wearing wool (best) or polyester underneath. The fabric was plenty breathable, it just seemed more comfortable with the softer under layers.

These are my first chest waders and I must say that they are easy to get on and off, very breathable, and the safety belt is hardly noticeable and works ( I tried it).
The sales associate recommended these over neoprene type. I have plenty of room for fleece during those cold months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MOFish Fit for a King......"King Size that is"
"I have been trying to find comfortable large man's waders for the last
ten years. Finally I found the LLBean Kennebec waders and their extensive large man sizes. Thank you LLBean....now I can breathe and move comfortably when I wade. I even can use the adjustable belt for my LLBean wading staff (review in the future) and my creel...would not dream of that with others. I tried several pairs of other XXLs and I could not get a comfortable size and they did not fit comfortably. My Kennebecs are perfect.Great material is tough and dries quick, the built in rock guards work great, the draw string tops are easy to make quick stops and search pockets without dis robing they also draw tight enough to keep deep water out. They also have nice pockets to warm hands and store stuff. Absolutely the BEST WADERs I have found for the money. If you are a large man and tired of not being able to bend and turn without comfort....then you gotta try these quality waders. I fish and wade at least once a week and I have put these to the test since March....I love them...=-)"

Rated 4 out of 5 by CampingFlyfisherman Kennebec wader review
Returned from first trip with new kennebec waders. No leaks, and they were tested in water up over the wading belt. I order the waders in a stout size following the sizing information. The waders are loose in the legs and chest area, At first I was not sold on how loose they fit, but they are easier to put on and take off. A major reason for purchasing these waders was the customer satisfaction that LL Bean is known for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mjmurray98 New Kennebec Waders, love 'em!
I got my new waders about a month ago, and finally got a chance to try them out last week. I spent three days fishing the Davidson and Wautuaga Rivers in NC, without complaint when it came to the waders. They fit like they were custom tailored, I'm 5'10", 180 lbs, and wear a size 10 shoe, I purchased mediums. They didn't leak a drop. I spent at least 24 hours in the water, and loved every minute of it. We'll see how they hold up over time, but I'm not concerned about that at all, they are very well built waders.
