I have owned a lot of Orvis equipment over the years and I have learnt the hard way that it is hit an miss between fantastic to outright bad quality. These waders fall into the later quality. I only got one and a half seasons out of these waders before they became unusable. The seams just fell apart. The waders look sharp and fit nicely, the internal water proof pocket is a really nice feature and the front zip is very handy, when nature calls. The first problem was a small one, but the zippers on the front pockets slider lost their pull tabs. Then I started to get nervous when the joins of those pockets started to bubble. Finally the welded seams gave way in the crotch. The actual material the waders are made from looks like new and is very robust and of good quality, however the welded seam technology isn't up to scratch. Unless you are a very light user I would not recommend these waders. If you are like me someone who loves to get out all summer fishing and get up to those mountain streams, these are not the waders to invest your money in.
Great Waders -
These waders are great but are on the pricey side. The clear waterproof pocket on the inside is a little difficult to open, especially with wet hands. Would be better if one side of the pocket had a reinforced ring in the top of it so you could have something to pull on to open it.
Almost Perfect -
I was somewhat suspicious of waders that have a front fly and might not hold the chilling waters of New England at bay, but so far all tests that I've put it through it has scored well. Unfortunately I have a slight complaint about the wader's design, specifically on the sole of the neoprene bootie. Putting on and off waders is one of the annoying things a fly fisher has to do. So why in the world did you put "non-skid" rubberized strips of nipples across the sole that makes slipping the bootie into the wading boot a literal pain in the toes. The bootie nipples grab the sole of the wading boot on the way in resulting in the toe of the bootie curling under the foot, jamming the toes until such time as you can hobble to the river to let water in which allows the toe of the bootie to slip free and settle naturally. Really very annoying, but otherwise the wader is terrific and (ahem) provides "full service" to your every wading needs. :-)

Have used these waders several times now and they are the best thing waders themselves are awesome in that they have hand warmer pockets,a dry pouch,and plenty of room.

Great waders....front zipper is the key. Where I fish in northern peninsula of Newfoundland as well as in Labrador, the norm is long hikes (2 hours plus) to get to our preferred spots. The zipper front waders are perfect for ventilation on these long hikes. Also greatly appreciated when nature calls. These waders are perfect at half the the price of Simms, with all the quality. Only unknown is will they last the test of time and the punishment of several seasons.

I haven't waded with these yet but they are very comfortable dry. The zipper feature makes them go on and off easily.they seem well constructed, and lots of pockets are a plus.
