Men's Angler Super Seam TEK Boot-Foot Waders is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from OK So Far But Could Be Improved The waders seem to be well-made but a couple of changes would make them better. First, a greater range of bootfoot size for each wader size (S,M,L etc) would provide a better fit for some of us. For example, I wanted to get these waders in a Small size but the bootfoot size for Smalls only went to 7 and I needed size 9. So I had to get the Medium waders which are OK but a bit baggier then I wanted. Second, the placement of the velcro on the shoulder straps is such that you cannot tighten the straps as much as I needed. To get around this, I had to sew the straps at one of the plastic strap guides to, in effect, shorten the straps so I could get a snug fit on the shoulders. A slight change in velcro position or a longer velcro length would have easily prevented this problem. I have used the waders twice now for flyfishing in the surf and they have performed well. I like the bootfoot type wader for this purpose as no gaitor is required and it is much easier to rinse off the sand at the end of the day than with my stockingfoot Simms waders. My only concern is how long the waders will last. Reviews I have read for other models/brands of bootfoot waders seem to indicate that bootfoots tend to have leakage/longevity problems. I am hoping that won't be the case with these.....we'll see.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable and secure I have worn stocking foot waders for years until an arthritic ankle would not tolerate tight boots. Based on good experience with Bean boot foot hippers, I bought these. Soles are sticky, they did not leak, the boot was comfortable but still surefooted. The upper body of the wader could be more generous to allow a coat to be worn inside. The velcro chest straps are not as secure as harness types, nor quite long enough.. Overall a good boot

Rated 3 out of 5 by from so far, so good used for a week in salt water in Cape Cod, no issues with the fit. I am not so sure about the long term use of velcro in place of buckles for the suspenders and belt. The belt was sewn incorrectly and tore at the stress point where is went through the plastic belt loop. In my opinion those loops are too small for the belt and the suspenders.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fits reasonably well I haven't used these yet, so this review just covers the fit. I purchased these to replace a beat up pair of Flyweight boot foots in medium / 10. I usually wear size 10 US boots, and size small shirts / jackets. Initially I bought these in large / 10, but they were huge on me. The medium / 9's feel a lot better. I generally wear a midweight hiking sock with my Flyweights, and this combo feels good. My intent is to use these for spring / summer surf fishing on the central California coast. We'll see how the velcro holds up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Quality, Comfortable Boot I have not had these in the water yet! So I'm just talking about material and fit here. I ordered up a size in the body so I could layer underneath for colder weather but I think I could have still done that with a small. So order your regular size. The boots are comfortable and the material and construction look good so far. The only thing I'm concerned about are the velcro shoulder straps. I don't think they'll last.
