What Customers Are Saying

I would buy again

This is to the guy that is not happy about them not being insulated.Just the boots are insulated not the waders. Believe it or not you just bought the best waders you have ever owned.I duck hunt well into December with these waders in 0 to 10 degree weather in Vermont with no problem.Some days we have very aggressive walks through marshes to get to the right duck hole and it's like walking with pants on.Once you own a pair of breathable wagers you will never go back to Neoprene waders!
