Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good so far I'm loving these waders....they are comfortable and dry very fast. The build quality seems very good and no leaks after 3 times out in both saltwater surf and bay wading trips. The jury is out from a durability perspective thus I can't go 5 stars. I'm 5'11"/185lbs shoe size is 11 and I purchased the size 11/large which fit very well. The fit is closer to the body unlike most other manufactures at this price point. The other companies have a balloony fit which I do not like.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from shredding felt, leak 40 years orvis fishing. salt water cape cod. worst orvis wader every purchased. leaked first time, not most major issue. felt on boot bottom shredded walking less than 50 yards on blacktop. boots also little too high, abraised shin.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from larger sized boots & longer legs The waders are fine indeed, however we larger folks need a larger number of boot sizes, and certainly longer legs. Availability of non-felt soles in this day and age is also needed, along with the felt ones.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Felt soles Felt soles can't be used in streams in Vermont I would regular lug soles and use corkers

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vibrant Soles ? This wader has been outstanding for four years of rough winter/steelhead use in upstate New York. Very comfortable to wear and the boot feet are solid protection against the cold conditions. Very happy with this product. I now need to order a back up pair as I know the hard use will catch up...but, I do not see this wader available with the hard (vibram ?) soles which are a necessity (for me) as the felt bottoms accumulate snow. Hopefully Orvis will bring back the other version.
