White River Fly Shop Classic Waist-High Stocking-Foot Breathable Wading Pants for Men
Bought a pair for what is going to be my first surf fishing trip. When I tried them on at the store I had to go to the 5X size even though my waist size is less than 50 in.
According to their size chart here in the ad, 5X is for folks with a 62 in. waist. The legs are also very tight, but, in contrast, the size of the sock-feet would be suitable for "Andre the Giant".
Bass Pro needs to "have-a-talk" with their manufacturer about this sizing and proportion problem since things like this cast doubt on the quality of the rest of their "in-house" products.
In two days I shall be in the surf with these; so, more later.

Good performance for the price
Waders are very comfortable compared to the neoprene pair I replaced. Lightweight and comfortable on warm days. I've done a lot of walking/wading/brush busting and have been happy with their performance. The only complaint I have, is they were only available in a 44" waist and larger. Seriously? The inseam is available in NORMAL sizes! Therefore the included belt was rendered useless because there is not enough adjustment to fit my waist. ( I am 5'7" - 155 lbs) I wear 32" waist jeans. However, that minor issue was solved with a cheap web belt in place of the factory belt. That issue aside, I would recommend this product to anyone looking for an entry level priced, breathable wader.

I bought these dry pants for winter kayak fishing. Have used them 3 times now and have stayed completely dry and warm in the winter water. Only thing is that I need to find a good larger size shoe to go over the built-in dry socks. The dry socks are not that thick, but definitely thicker that a normal sock. I consider this a great buy.

Good for the price
I've worn these waist high waders 6-7 times while stream fishing and find them to be quite satisfactory. The only problem was in ordering the correct size, as the catalog did not list shoe sizes with the size info. I ordered a small (I'm 5'7" with a size 9 shoe) and it fits the feet just fine but is a bit short in the inseam, which affects how much I can bend my knees in them.
