Rated 4 out of 5 by FlyFisherLLBean Upgraded Waders
These are the best made waders for this function in the industry. The fit, carry bag and easy to use straps are perfect. The product is a significant upgrade from the older version.
Thank you LLB

Rated 4 out of 5 by AdventuresOutdoors A Good Boot but Expensive
This was my go to boot when I needed to buy another pair of boots for dedicated use in private PA trout waters. My first pair of these boots are now a year old and I even wore them in the thigh deep snow we had this year in Western Maryland. They are lightweight and the boot soles provide good traction on a variety of surfaces. Be careful pulling them on by rolling down the top to the seam with the boot and make sure you pull on the boot not the top. It would be nice if there were some kind of pull tab inside the boots. A different fastening system would also be nice for the belt straps so you don't have to thread them through a buckle. A design like the customary adjustable snap straps would be great.

I go clamming with them almost every weekend, even in the winter, their light weight and keep my feet warm. I would recommend them for any type of low water activities. the only issue I have is the belt lope tie downs are made of an elastic type material that loses it memory after several outings. my suggestion would be to maybe made that material out of rubber with a button hole to attach them at different lengths
Thanks LL Bean, you will always be my outdoor supplier of choice.

Nice and light but not flimsy like other breathable or vinyl ones out there . Had all rubber ones to heavy and hot. Found fit true to shoe size.

Recieved my hipwadders and immediately inspected them and then tried them on. I have a 29" inseam and the waders are 33.5" in length, of course about 2" of that give or take is sole and heel. The length fit perfectly as did the boot itself, I wear a 9.5 and so I ordered a 10 which is good because it gives one that extra room for insoles and heavy or wool socks to keep ones feet warm during the winter season or in chilly mountain waters, in which I do most of my trout fishing. These waders are very well made and if there is one thing that I would have liked is that it were felt soles, being that rocks in mountain streams are oftentimes algae coated and very slippery and the felt helps to lessen the chance of a nasty fall. Top leg circumfrence could be a little bit smaller, 28" is quite large even though cinched up for a baggy fit. Other than those two minor issues, the hipwadders are very well made, easy to move around in and comfortable. Well done LL Bean and thanks.

Love everything about them. Just wish they would be a little longer. My inseam is 36". They are about 2 to 3" short for me. Fix that and they are perfect!!!
