RedHead® Bone-Dry Rubber Boot-Foot Chest Waders for Men, Ladies or Youth
Waders Are Garbage
I took these on a week long fishing trip and they ripped in the seat the second day in when I bent over to net a fish. I had to use them as hip waders for the rest of the trip. They were properly sized for me and I was not abusing them over the ordinary river fishing wear and tear. The rip was not along a seam so I am guessing a material defect was to blame or, more likely, they are garbage.

I have had these waders for three years now and I have never had a problem with them. I STRONGLY recommend these waders! They will keep you dry as long as you do not go too deep in the water. The soles on the boots are quite durable. As long as you take care of them they will not wear out.

Low cost; fall into river
These are perfectly adequate waders, but the bottoms are so slippery that I fell into the river within 5 minutes of going out to fly fish. After being extremely careful to stay on sand, near the end of my trip I fell again -- and the cold water in the boots defintely put a damper on my experience. My companion had a much better set up with boots that had metal cleats. He did not slip into the river... Lesson learned to spend a bit more for MUCH better traction in the river!

Not a bad product for the money spent. I purchased these as a stop-gap and I expected to get at most 1 season out of them but I am now going into the second season. They are awesome for duck hunting when all you are doing is sitting in a pond with a muddy bottom. The disadvantage of this product is that it is heavy and the grip on the boots are useless in a stream with a rocky bed which can make wading difficult.
