Solid pair of waders!! I'm a pretty big guy. 6'5" roughly 200 pounds, and I purchased the XL waders so that the stocking feet matched my size. Although the LL would have been more ideal. First impression was wow, these waders are made to last, the bottom portion has a a think but lightweight layer that will definitely keep you safe as you hike to your secret hole. Second impression was how amazing the feet felt, perfect fit, I wear size 12 and these were just perfect. I'll have to give them a test run out on the river and see how more amazing this pair of waders really is.
