I owned two pairs of the older Hellbender. Size L fit me, but I had to order a M in the new Hellbender II. L too big. The new model is improved with better strap and belt quality (older ones seemed to lose elasticity over time). The new model has zippered hand warmer pockets, another improvement over the open pockets in the old model... the fleece inside would get wet during deep wading, and then not dry out easily... the result was mildew on the inside of the chest pocket. If I were the designer I would get rid of the built-in gravel guards. You can buy separate guards cheap... and they last forever! THE most important practice for breathable wader longevity is rolling them inside-out to dry, and the wader guards make this difficult. Their added bulk interferes with easy inside-out turning/rolling...and you have to pull hard down by the neoprene bootie to finish the task. I worry this stresses the seams in an area that often forms leaks as the waders age. Great wader for the price!
Very tight in ankle area

Be aware when ordering that you may have to order one size up than the chart. I ordered a size medium and had to return the waders because it was extremely difficult to put the foot through the ankle area just below the gravel guard (foot gets stuck between at the heel and bridge of the foot). I am 5-10, 180 lbs, and wear a 9.5 to 10 shoe size. It's a shame because once the waders are on they fit great and very reasonably priced.
Leaked from day 1
Purchased a pair for me and my wife. Both leaked from day 1. Wife's didn't last a year without splitting a seam on side of leg. Never purchase another pair.
Fit perfect, comfortable all day

I was hesitant to purchase these due to the reviews stating narrow fit at ankle. However once they arrived and I tried them on, even with two pairs of socks there was no problem on or off. Even after fishing, when wet, they came right off. I am 6ft 150lbs so maybe someone w thicker legs and ankles may have issues. I am very happy with these waders so far after two outings. The only reason I did not give 5 stars was-I think the top area could be better fit instead of a straight cut with a drawstring, maybe a little cutaway under the arms. But for the price these waders hit all the important areas providing a good value compared to some more expensive waders.
WARNING: THEY LEAK
