White River Fly Shop® Osprey Chest-High Stocking-Foot Breathable Waders for Men
Good until they leak
My third pair of White River waders lasted longer than the first two - almost 3 years before leaking. I considered myself lucky when the first pair leaked in less than a year and I could get another under warranty.
The leaky neoprene foot cannot be repaired on these

Jury is out
The product itself is good, warm enough and has good features - taped seams, waterproof zippers, nice hand pockets, inside and outside storage compartments. Sizing is fair, I'm 6'1"200 lbs and the large is a perfect length, but a bit large otherwise. Still, very comfortable on the water. My only complaint is with Bass - the one I got appeared slightly dirty and possibly used, so the store kindly gave me a discount. However, turns out it was also damaged - had a hole in one leg from what appeared to be a puncture, and I got soaked the first time out. I could return it but chose to patch it for now and try again. Was a good deal so hopefully that's all it needs.

I purchased the White Water Osprey chest waders at a great deal of $79.00 at the grand opening of a BPS in Cary NC. I used them for two weeks straight . I used them while it was snowing ,in the rain and in the sunshine and stayed dry . They are comfortable in the way they fit and in the different types of weather. I would recommend them to anyone . They are a deal even at the regular price.

Just got back from a week long fishing trip from Colorado, bought these waders in a rush with low expectations but high hopes. I was extremely surprised with the quality and durability. The spring melt off was at its peak so hiking in to find calmer waters and pools was necessary. Wore these waders from the truck, down paths, off paths down steep rocky declines and inclines, over rocks through wild rose patches and dense brush, fell hip deep into a hidden irrigation drain and waded mid chest depth through the river with no leaks or failures! The hikes through rough terrain paid off with over 50 fish caught!! The fly shops we talked to said they weren't having much success which made the trip sweeter! These waders holding up to the abuse i put them through made it possible. Don't be fooled by the cost, these waders are the best purchase I've ever made at BPS.
