Rated 1 out of 5 by StatenTheFacts If you want leaky waders buy these
I have had 4-5 pairs of these waders mailed to me over the last year and a half. Every pair has gained a leak within a month to three months of use. The latest pair I used leaked on the second use around the crotch area. That particular area seems to be the most common leaking spot on these waders. LL Bean does a great job of shipping out new waders immediately upon return, but I'm finished with trying to use these waders. They simply do not work, and are not durable. I hope I can get a complete refund. So far LL Bean customer service has been excellent. That is one upside to dealing with the company.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Flyingfish1 Do not buy these waders
These waders look perfect; they are nicely designed, fit well, are comfortable, and moderately priced. So, what is the problem? They leak. I've had four pairs of them, thanks to LLBean's superb customer service, and every pair leaked within 12 uses. Two of them leaked immediately, right out of the box. They leak at the crotch, mostly, but one leaked at the boot. I am not hard on waders; I use them for wading on sandy bottoms, some in freshwater and some on the beach. I used to buy breathable waders from another source for $199, and I'd typically get three seasons out of them, but they aren't made anymore. I don't expect 5 years of use for $200, but 12 outings or less just isn't acceptable, and after four tries, I've given up on them. You should, too.

I recently purchased my !st ever items from LLBEAN. I bought a pair of Flyweight Boot Foot Waders, and a Emerger Wading Jacket. Let me start by saying that i was encouraged by a friend to get the waders at LLBEAN because they make a great product. ( I DISSAGREE ) and have a great warranty ( I AGREE ) I received the waders ( great shipping fast, free ) I used them within 2-days( having a great Striped Bass run right now) I came back after fishing completely wet arund crotch area. I called customer service ( customer service GREAT JOB ) they found me a new pair at another store and had them shipped too me ( FAST) i was up and fishing within 3days with new pair . I came back after fishing and now i was wet in both legs by ankles. Needless to say i am in the process of returning these and getting a complete refund. So i dont know what the problem is but i am now kinda turned off on LL bean products ( Wading Jacket I like it no problems) Thank you Brad

Looking for a good quality and affordable waders? Look no further these are really great waders for the price. Light weight and keeps you dry. I'm 186 lbs. 5'9" and wear a size 9.5 shoes so I bought a large with size 10 boots. And they fit pretty well. Costumer service is very good!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LIFISHERMAN Best waders I have owned
After wearing many different waders in the salt water surf, these are by far the best. Always dry, the breathable material is great. I will never go back to any other brand. A friend has the emergerII's and they are fantastic as well. Cannot go wrong. Saltwater is as rough as it gets on equipment and these waders are made with Quality material!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by steeletroutman great fit and comfortable
The light weightweight waders arrived with free shipping quickly and were in use within 2 days. They are comfortable and all that I would ever hope a fishing wader would be.

Rated 4 out of 5 by surfwalker difficult fit
I purchased these waders in a size 10 large. Unfortunately I had to return them. I take a 9 and 1/2 shoe and fit into a large shirt/ jacket etc. 32 inseam and 37 waist. The feet fit pretty good; maybe a little bit loose but I was wearing thin socks when I tried them on. The body was overall just a little too big; inseam, chest, legs. I would have tried a smaller size but the medium drops the foot size to a 9. but if any of you have shopped for waders you know how it goes. otherwise these are very well constructed waders.

Rated 5 out of 5 by E5475 Great fit, comfortable, don't leak, durable
Bought these for striper surf fishing in northern california. They are worth every penny. Light weight, don't leak, durable, clean up easy. Ill spend 4-5 hours in surf at a time, never had a problem. The only issue is the velcro on the small chest pouch is starting to come off. I keep my phone and glasses in there and open and close it a lot. Like I said, blood and all the salt water wash off easily. would recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by Claddaugh lighbulb moment
We have a cabin in western Maine that has a mountain water system that involves getting in a spring-fed stream twice a year to turn it on and off. Why we took so long to figure out waders might make this process less, well, frigid is beyond us. These waders work amazingly well! Completely waterproof and warm, if you layer properly underneath. They are lightweight and easy to put on. What a "DUH!" moment we had when we realized we needed a pair.
As always, Bean's customer service was AMAZING when the US Postal Service decided that they couldn't find us. Why does anyone shop for outdoor gear anywhere else?
