Rated 3 out of 5 by BlooMagoo a reasonable option for the price conscious
I would characterize my experience with these waders as pretty good for the price. I have worn them fly fishing for trout in tailwaters, fly fishing for stripers on beaches, and as a waterproof layer for kayak fishing. They performed flawlessly through almost two seasons of fairly light use...then I developed a small leak in the left foot. But they are still wearable, especially on the kayak. Whether these waders are appropriate for your use depends on how you intend to use them and what your expectations are. I have read on the internet (so it must be true) that the life expectancy of waders is about 3 seasons. If you're going to be replacing them every few years anyway and your needs are light, then it may make sense just to buy a pair of these every 2-3 years over waders that cost double that. But for me, I will upgrade to another brand for wading this season and keep these for the kaya

The waders did great keeping water out yet were still breathable. Little bit a water on socks after 10 hours in the river.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Johnny Midnights Field and Stream Breathable stockingfoot wader
I bought these waders in the spring (2013) and the leg seams are starting to leak. Upon examination I noticed chafing on the outside of the wader inside the crotch on both sides of the leg areas.Yes, I had some punctures from hooked fish running into me, but I patched them up and all was fine. Now this chafing issue, It seems those areas need to be reinforced somewhat. I think the chafing occurs while walking and the wader material brushes against the opposite legs. I guess Field and Stream could consider this wear and tear. Will consider another brand next time.

Just came back from a steelhead trip in ny,my feet froze all day for three days straight standing in snow or below freezing water. It was like fishing in freezing wet socks. Going to return them today.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Witty These waders are garbage
I am an avid stream fisherman and I am always looking for a good buy on waders. I found these marked down to $89.95 and thought they would be worth a try. Well you get what you pay for with these. The first time out the right ankle seam started to leak within an hour of being on the stream. It was on a Saturday afternoon and I didn't have time to go back and get another pair before my Sunday morning trip. Sunday morning I figured I have to just bear with the leak but by the afternoon on Sunday they were leaking on both ankle seams and in the crotch seam. Thank God it was warm out. Needless to say I returned them. That was the best thing I could say was the service I got was great when it came to the return. I would never buy anything made by Field and Stream again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Retired:"gone fishing" Warm and dry
I bought these waders back in June, but did not get on the river(wading, too busy lake fishing in my Field and Stream, Eagle Run Kayak)until Oct.21!! The river was cold, high, and fast. I had to walk through brush, tall grass, cattails, along parts of the river. The waders were very comfortable to walk in, did not leak at all in the water, and with a plain pair of socks, and sweats, I was warm, and stayed, comfortably, in the river for long periods at a time. I'm happy I followed my sons(he is my fishing mentor)advice to buy these waders. Looking forward to many more hours of river fishing next spring. :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by Doug lighter weight, keep you dry
Used for work and play...I'm a pastor and use it to keep dry during baptismal service and am a fisherman. It works well in my belly-boat.
