RedHead® Bone Dry® Hobbs Creek® Boot-Foot Waders for Men
Cold and weak
I do my duck hunting in north florida where is doesnt get very cold and it doesnt take much to stay warm during the winter. These waders do not keep me warm at all. The thinsulation is only in the boots. Also I have had these for about a year now and after normal use in only muddy conditions I have a serious leak in 2 different seams. One near the crotch and one around the top of one of the boots. Also the suspenders do not adjust enough for and are to big even at their smallest setting. Terrible waders for the price and I got them on sale!

Bang for Buck
I found this product to be a pretty good choice as I was new to waterfowl hunting and didn't want to spend too much. So far I found these bib to do the trick. As long as you layer your clothing under them appropriate for the weather they do the trick. I will test them out when the snow and ice comes and see how well the layering works out.
They do work very well for keeping water out as well as in with my experience.
My only bad point about bibs in general is that they offer the one size fits all, but with a size 10 foot I'm not quite tall enough for the size 10 waders, so I end up trying to roll the excess down over the boot.

Great so far
I've hunted with these waders three times so far. I bought them during the season when all other waders were sold out or back ordered; however, I was not disappointed. I hunted in subzero temperatures on the Snake River in Idaho. I wore long-jons and wool socks and the waders were good and warm. Wearing less warm clothing would allow these waders to be worn in warmer weather too. I'm not saying these are for super cold temperatures but I had no problems. I found that they did need to be a little taller so my waders are a little cramped. The treds on the boots are horrible to walk on dirt hills but other than that they were good. It's no top of the line 300 pocket waders but it does the job.

Nothing But Neoprene
I do not have a problem with these waders really but they are not very comfortable. They are decently warm, but if you hunt in any temperature below 30 degrees, these are not your waders. If you are doing timber hunting, it is worth the money to pay for $150+ waders. Make sure you get neoprene. This material is NOT flexible at all. It does not give with movements. When you are sitting in a pit, you kind have to slouch in order for it to be comfortable. Neoprene gives with your body and to me is also warmer. I also have hunted about one season in them (for me about 2 1/2 weeks). I am beginning to find holes in them. Holes in waders while timber hunting is not fun. BUY NEOPRENE WADERS THEY ARE WORTH IT!!!
