RedHead® Bone-Dry Rubber Boot-Foot Hip Waders for Men, Ladies and Youth
I owned a cheap pair of FroggToggs before these waders and the RedHead's are head and shoulders above them. Thick rubber construction trumps the waterproofed canvas in durability and warmth. Warmth is important to me because I generally fish in the chilly rivers of Northern Michigan and the Upper Peninsula. The RedHead's also have more adjustments available: thigh width and belt strap length.
My only problem with the RedHead's is that part of the sponge insole has pushed up a little and I can feel it on the ball of my right foot. They came to me that way and I could probably send them back for a new pair but, it doesn't bother me enough to spend the time on it.
Also, the RedHead's have a strap style system that ties around your calf, inside the wader, that's new to me. The way I've been using it causes the waders to push the boot down and it makes walking feel 'weird'. Perhaps I'm using it wrong.
Overall, I'm satisfied with these waders and hope to get years of fishing fun with them.

Great boots for price
Excellent product. Have used these boots in cold water trout streams and ocean surf and always kept me dry and warm. No leaks and great foot support. Best wear with jeans since they may chaff if wearing over shorts.

Red Head Hip Boots
These are great boots. They are the perfect height for somewhat deep water, just enough to get a snag or change position in a creek. They fit a little large, maybe one shoe size too big, but when you are in water, the pressure fits them to your foot. Keep you completely dry, no slip, nice boots.
