Hellbender™ Stockingfoot Guide Pant
Ratings & Reviews
Great with one flaw
I have the medium size, and I am 5'10'' 155lbs and a 9.5 shoe size. I have been using these year round since June 2017. The feet of the waders fit just fine, and the cuffs are tight to the lower calf (which I like). On that note, you have to pull quite hard to force your heel past the cuff. The waist comes up to just past my navel if I want it to. So far no leaks have occurred, which is a major plus. And that is with quite a bit of bushwhacking. They look pretty good, compared to many other waders. The only real negative I have found so far is the hooks on the front of the gravel guards are down in without any reinforcement. I lost one of them completely and hand sowed the other back on. As long as I am wearing boots it's not a huge issue, but still fairly frustrating. This occurred in August 2018, just outside of the warranty period. For this reason it is not a 5 star product for me.
Awesome for Kayaking
by Bass Whisperer
I fish from a kayak all year long, no matter how cold the water is! This year Tennessee had some warm spells in January and February, but I still had to break the ice at the waters edge to get to open water and my Hellbenders kept me comfortable, dry and catching bass all day long.
