Default Re: waders???????????

Try on a pair of the orvis sonic seams, the tops of the waders are on slides that will go down to just above the belt and the fabric bunches up over the belt. It creates a little bit of a kangaroo pouch over the belt. The back buckle for the slide is a little hard to reach especially for shorter people and it gets in the way of waist packs so i usually leave the back up and let the fronts down to good effects. Letting the waders down makes the front pocket... difficult. Another pair of suspenders for traditional use are also included and are half as wide. I probably wont use these. Pretty lightweight fabric but i was warm this morning at 35 degrees. No handwarmer pockets but i like to wear a coat over my waders anyways.

Havent had these for more than 2 days so i cant say much about the durablility. No more than what orvis will tell you. I have dunked these all the way up to the top for a couple minutes just to check for leaks so i can very well say initial quality is fantastic.

These are almost identical to the redingtons of the same make but those have pockets and these have the convertable tops.

To be honest i chose these for the sole reason that they fit better than simms, but im happy with my purchase.

Have you ever cashed in on this "warranty"? Wondering how well it works out.. Will they replace the waders no matter the issue? This would definitely be the selling point for me.. as I am in the market for a pair of waist-highs myself.. as I am rarely ever in water deeper than my waist.. and here in the DA.. with all the pasture around.. tripping over barbed wire that's been washed away can be a common occurrence on some streams...
