Very Comfortable

As winter quickly approaches and being that my last pair of breathable waders was stolen a couple of months ago by some jerk that decided to loot our campsite. I recently purchased the White River Fly Shop Pocket Front Breathable Stocking-Foot Waders. I've been out several times now in them and wanted to share my review.

High grade 5 layer nylon upper is laminated with a 100% waterproof/breathable membrane. Features a deluxe front handwarmer pocket with zippered organizer pockets, inside utility pocket, top draw string and side cinch straps for better fit, elastic adjustable suspenders with quick release buckles, reinforced knee and seat, self fabric gravel cuffs with lace keeper, neoprene stocking foot with high density neoprene foot for comfort, and accessory D-rings.

Currently, I am a big fan these waders. They are very comfortable and are not too thin or thick. I made sure to purchase a large enough size so that I could comfortably wear a base and insulating layer beneath.

They retail for about $149.99 which is a pretty good price point for a mid-range pair of waders. All of the stitching seems very durable and the shoulder straps stay steady while moving around.

When purchasing the waders, I was very excited about the front pockets, thinking that I would use them to hold small accessories but as I found out once on the water that they are completely covered up by my pfd. I did do a little wading in a small creek recently and used those front pockets to hold my small fly case and camera and were very convenient.

Possible Negatives:
They come with, instead of a wading belt, a strap on either side that tightens acting as the wading belt. To be honest, I’m still a little up in the air on this feature. I have not yet tested to see if they are as efficient as a standard wading belt and would consider possibly adding an additional wading belt.

I did read one review on Bass Pro’s website that mentioned some leaking around the crouch and knees, but I have not experienced any of these leaks.
