RedHead® Bone-Dry Extreme® Waders for Men
great waders just a little small for me
i have worn these waders for the last five seasons and hunting the swamps of east TN, i have realy put them through the ringer with only one complaint they are just to small for me im a big guy a 6'4" and 350 lbs they restrict my movement and i cant layer clothes underneath like i need to.
i would recommend these waders to anyone just pay close attention to the size chart.

I purchased a pair of these waders, nearly 8 years ago. I hunt hard, and in tough conditions. The waders hung in there with no leaks or issues until last year. I will be replacing them with the same kind. I think 7 seasons of hunting 35 days plus each year, is pretty good use!

I purchased this model about 5 years ago. Where my buddy and I hunt is the roughest environment I can imagine for waterfowl hunting. We joke about it being the proving grounds for hunting gear. 20 degrees F at 100% humidity, trekking down steep 30 foot banks, then through fields of cockle burs and across soggy, marsh covered springs that lead to the banks of the Mississippi. These waders have seen it all. Every season they have delivered beyond expectation and somehow not sprung a leak. Every year I think "this will be the last season these waders can handle", and every year they give me one more season.
I gave them 4 stars and not 5 because of two minor issues. The first is that the strap buckle will slightly impede your ability to shoulder your gun, but only slightly. The second is the weight of the boot portion while traveling on land. They are noticeably much heavier than other waders which leads to fatigue if you have a long way to walk. However there is a catch! The boots are quite buoyant in water. This allows for easier mobility in soft swamps, lakes and rivers. If you stand on one foot, your free foot will actually tend to float.
Over all, these waders have been a win for me and they have exceeded my expectations. They passed 5 years of hard hunting and are still going strong. Red Head did well with these waders!

Leak Leak & Leak !
My brother, my friend and I bought these waders in Sep 2006. On the opening day of the hunt all three of them leaked in the crutch and leg area.
The boots are very heavy and inflexible without any ankle support and not suitable for walking at all.
I had a Neoprene which I used for 10 years. The only reason I needed a new one was because I outgrow them. I hunt about 10-15 times a year in rough marsh and lake conditions. I am going back to my Neoprene, despite difficult putting on and taking off.
The plus side is Bass Pros excellent customer service. We had them retuned without any problem.
While I do not recommend this product at all, I do recommend shopping from Bass Pro.
