RedHead® Bone Dry® Hobbs Creek® Boot-Foot Waders for Men
cold and clamy
I've worn these in all sorts of weather in two years. When it is warm you sweat to death and when it is cold your freeze even if the waders are dry inside. I was reaching down (the proper way that you do in waders so you don't put undue pressue on the fabric) to pick up a decoy and the back suspender loop snapped right in half leaving me with one working suspender. The loop cannot be replaced because of the way that they are made so I am stuck.
I guess you get what you pay for. Cheap waders.

Bought these waders on sale in MOBU in '09 and they haven't let me down yet. Roomy, but layer up in colder temps for they are non insulated, except for the boots (wear a wool blend sock with a polypropolene sock for wicking away moisture). I plan on using them again this season for river fishing. Wish it had a bigger pocket in the front or at least a pouch (like a hoodie). Good for the money and can be used for hunting, too!

better as a garbage bag
Got these 5 seasons ago at full price. seemed ok at 1st ..... a bit heavy .... last year they began leaking here n there so I patched them ....... this year I pulled them out for the fall salmon run and the whole right side began cracking. Its as if the rubber mid layer was overcooked in an oven. It literally cracked all over into dust between the fabric layers.
I think I will go back to $50 waders ................. :-(

Not a good fit
I'm 6'4" and tried these waders on at the store. I was looking for a pair of non-neoprene waders for hotter weather in the Southwest. These did not fit well at all as the legs are not even close to being long enough and there is no option for a tall or king size. I'm sure they're decent waders, just not for taller guys.
