Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Waders I love these waders as they are super light and easy to convert to waste. Thank you for the best waders I could have!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit Most waders won’t fit me because of my height. Orvis has a tall size that doesn’t bind up when wading

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Phenomenal Waders I'll admit it -- this is my first set of non-neoprene non-bootfit waders and I was a skeptic. One trip to our local trout waters and all the skepticism is gone. Fit: These are a slimmer fitting wader than you may have previously worn, which is great for minimizing hang-ups between pool hopping or in mountainous blue-line exploration. Quality: We've all bought new waders from cheaper manufacturers and have seen the tell-tale cover-up sealant where QA folks identified pre-sale weak spots and released the product. There's no risk of that here -- every seam is sealed right the first time. No leaks. While the heel-side of the gravel guards are stretchy and conform to your boots, I'm cautious of the durability of the stretchy (neoprene?) material. I would like to withhold judgment until I get through a full season. Weight: They're definitely light, but with the right layering are perfectly manageable in 50+ degree water; you may find comfort in potentially colder with the right base layers. These probably aren't your main-stem Delaware winter waders, but the ability to roll down the chest level quickly and with one hand will pay dividends in those mid- and late-season sessions. Overall Value: Hard to imagine a higher quality wader at this price point. Orvis knocked it out of the park with these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable waders. Great fit Very nice waders. Fit true to size and very light and comfortable for summer wading

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Maine Maine fishing can be cold and miserable to hot and sweaty. These waders will take you Through both types of climate and conditions. Tough and versatile! Fit is great as a 5’11” 215 guy the xl fit perfectly. Most brands inseam are far too long for me even with the King and Short sizes available. Orvis got the mark. The convertible top works seamlessly with the magnet button/slide clip. Looking forward to taking the top down on hot days and hikes in and out. No need to pack in and out in a back pack now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fit great and feel like they will last years I decided to get a decent pair of waders. I really like that they had a tall large pair instead of xl. I am 6’4” and the boots never fit on other waders with out the top being a complete tent. I really like that they convert up and down easily and have all the pockets for your phone and spare flies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice fit and great features!! I have waders from three different brands and Orvis seems to have the best fit. Plus these waders are quite comfortable. The additional pockets, convertible aspect, and comfort put them above the other options at this price.
