Lives up to the Billing. Surpasses Expectations!!!

I know that waders aren't something you should give a 5 frogg feet rating to in the first year of use. That being said, I will probably update this review in the coming years. But I couldn't wait to let the good people know what I thought about this product.
<br>In the meanwhile though, I have to say these are the lightest, most comfortable and breatheable waders I have ever used. Hiking and paddling through the Everglades can make you work up a bit of a sweat, but you barely even notice in the Grand Passage waders. The internal and external zippered pockets are great for keeping your phone, licenses and snacks in. I haven't needed to use the hand warmers here in South FL, but it comes in very handy for holding spent shells. I love the chest shell holder for the ease of access when you need a quick reload for your side by side. The more traditional belt shell holders are also very effective. And the boots fit snugly around your feet and keep them warm, which is especially helpful in thick mud and hydrilla. There is enough room in the wader for layering if the temperatures dropped, but I haven't had the need for that as yet. The material rinses off and cleans up very quickly and easily, and dries with the same speed.
<br>My only complaint is that the inseam is a little closer that I would like, but for overall ergonomics, the waders perform exceptionally and seem to be quite durable. I would recommend these to anyone needing an early season or warm weather hunting wader.
