I wanted to love these waders. My body type is short and skinny. I'm 5'8" and 150lbs. I have a pair of Redington Sonic Pro waders in Medium now and they are a little baggy so I thought going with something higher end, and a size smaller would solve the problem. It was the complete opposite. I bought these in size small and they were humungous! My pant inseam is 30-31 inches and these had to have been 32-34 or somewhere in there. The waist/chest area along with the legs were all for someone twice my girth. BUT the booties on the small fit perfectly... size 8.5/9 shoe and these fit snug as a bug.
Needless to say, if you have a slimmer body type then I would stay away from these. If you have an athletic build and/or bigger frame then definitely go for them... and here is why I would choose them if the fit worked:
Adjustable Suspenders - SO convenient. The adjustability is easy to use, but a little awkward just to put them on. Either way, awesome feature.
Knee Pads! - Yes removable soft foam knee-pads. Awesome feature again for when you have to kneel in the river to get your Grip n' Grin shot, or sneaking up on a spooky hole.
Waterproof Pocket - many waders claim to have water resistant or waterproof pockets for your phone or keys, but this one is legit. After losing one phone to this feature on other waders, i'm happy this one was bombproof.
Booties - insulated booties are nice, plus the anatomically shaped booties for left and right. They were awesome. but don't expect softness and plushness... they are not either.
Materials - bombproof materials and awesome construction. Great construction in the crotch area. weird, but nice feature when you're bending down a lot.
