IMG_2317.JPG I was wading chest deep 6 hrs a day for a week in the Klamath River and I stayed dry and comfortable all day. I caught this 37" 18 lb. Salmon with 10lb. test line on the first day! These waders got my recommendation !

Rated 1 out of 5 by Fishman Disappointed
Hodgeman red stone waders ...was excited to receive for Father's Day ....on my first fishing trip ....they leaked badly....spring trip...water was cold....called hodgeman. They sent me a replacement. Next trip....while standing in waist deep water the pain in my ankles and toes was unbearable! Boots collapsed in foot area under pressure in deep water...in 50 years of trout fishing these are the worst boots I ever owned . Have contacted hodgeman again, not so willing to replace, have only offered a deep discount on a new pair. I guess they should test their products more thoroughly before they sell them. Or at least stand by them.....

If you want to feel like your circulation is being cut off at your ankles the minute you get in the water, then this product is for you. These are so bad that they bruise your legs. As for being waterproof, forget it. They leak from various points throughout. Don't waste your money.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Roger Thought I was getting a good deal...
Out of the box, these waders looked great. They are lightweight and the boots were easy to put on and remove while I tried them on at the house. I was concerned with the other reviews that said the boot cut into their leg, but I did not have this problem and I have fairly large calves.
When I took them out for the first time to go fishing, they sprung a leak in two locations, the seat and where the wader meets the right boot. Reports of the boot caving in and hurting your feet are somewhat valid, but I kind of expected that in a lightweight rubber boot.
All in all, these were great for the first two hours, but after springing two leaks, I will definitely be returning.

Right out of the box first Time wearing them they leaked from foot to crotch. Legs filled up with air making it feel as if your legs and feet were trying to float away. The boots felt great until you got into the water. They collapsed around my feet hurting my toes.

Rated 3 out of 5 by FishinTheOutdoors HUGE! Not for a slender guy! 200 pounds and up only!
The boot itself wasn't very nice, to tight around the ankle. The material was very nice but a size 10 boot, the wader is HUGE! I'm right around 145 pounds and 6 foot tall, this waders made me look like a sack of potato's. My father tried them on as well, he is 6 foot tall, but right around 220 pounds, there still to big.

Nice waders but the boot will cut you up on your ankles and leg if pants are not between the leg and boot. Usually your pants ride up so you have to really work the pant leg back down or wear under armor to allow it to slide back down.
The ankle in the boot gets cut and you need to double or triple up your socks. I bandage my ankles to create a barrier.
Good but be prepared

Nice waders, light weight, can maneuver in them nice. It's a great product BUT the only thing that is bad with it is....
the boot is tight around the ankles, I have skinny legs and ankles...it rubbed the skin off causing me to suffer a week or more trying to walk with my regular sneakers on. I had to put neosporin on the wound, band aids and medical tape to create a barrier from more friction and injury.
There is a warning in the box and it shows a way to stretch the boot part out a little to soften the area up. I did that and it did help a little bit.
So the advice is...if you buy these, take the extra steps to break the ankle part in a little by stretching/bending the area and wear thick socks or use common sense to keep your ankles from getting torn apart.
Aside from this flaw, Yes I would buy this again
