RedHead® Bone-Dry Hobbs Creek® Chest Waders for Ladies and Youth
Worst Purchase Ever
These waders did not keep me dry at all. I bought them at the end of summer and I've only worn them two times so far. The first time I had a little bit of water leakage around the boot area, but the second time my socks were soaked and I was wet all the way up to my lower back. When I took the waders off at the end of the morning and turned them upside down the water just poured out of them. I inspected them when I got home and did not find any holes. Needless to say I was very disappointed in this product.

Bought these chest waders thinking they would be smaller due to being women's/boys, however the show size is true to what it says and fits well but the top of the waders are way to large for any women or boy, making them uncomfortable and bulky to wear.

All You Will Need
There are a lot of waders out there, but not a lot of them give you value like this. They don't have as many features as some of the more elaborate neoprene designs, but they do the job.
I would recommend these for someone just starting out in waterfowl. Great price and they'll do a great job in the field. I trek through all kinds of hazards and the material stands up fine.
They're not insulated, so I echo the other reviews that tell you to layer up underneath. However, this allowed me to wear them during summer dog training and teal season without getting over heated in 1000gram neoprene. I bought a pair for my girlfriend for her first teal hunt and the only complaint she had was the weight.
I bought neoprene waders this fall because I plan on a few more late season outings, but these will remain a favorite for me.

Best of What is Available
Needed a new pair of hip waders but couldn't find any in "female" sizes so I ordered these hip waders. The legs are the correct length for a child so at 5'6" tall the crotch of the waders sits about 8" low making it difficult to walk and climb in and out of a canoe. The boot sizes are a little off too - I wear a women's 8 shoe and the size 6 are very big even with wool liners. That said - they keep me dry and warm and have held up well so far!
