    Lightweight and convenient - 2/18/2014
    By: from Delmont, PA

    Great for a day on the water or even around camp. I do a lot of float trips were we will be camping an portaging our canoes. These pants were a game changer for me, and really helped me simplfy my gear. Two complaints: the compression sack is too large, the pants can compress down much smaller than the bag is capable. Also, when seated the fabric at the seams behind the knees seems to bunch uncomfortably and gets pretty tight around my calf and knee. Eventually i got used to this and with some breaking in it is not as bad. They are very comfy for hiking and have proven to be pretty rugged so far, i am pretty rough on my gear.

    Helpful and Fast!!!! - 2/11/2014
    By: from Pitsford NY

    I went in to my local Orvis store with a gift card from Xmas. The sales team found what I was looking for fast and got me on the phone with a rep to place my order so I would avoid shipping cost and that was that. I was told my order would arrive in 5 to 7 businesse days but I had it in 3! Love my new wadding pants and can't wait for some warm weather.

    Best waders - 11/26/2013
    By: from Colorado Springs, Colorado

    I am a large man, 6'3", 285, and size 14 foot, a former college athlete from way back when. Finding the right fit in things like waders can be challenging at times. Thank you Orvis for the pack and travel wader pants! Your xxl is perfect and will fit even larger than me. Love them for spring and fall wading. Just fished in a blizzard here in Colorado with them, heavy weight longjohns, and med weight wool socks...5 hours in the water and never once got cold. They have held up well since spring and are "my only waders". Thanks again Orvis.

    Excellent Price-Performance Relationship - 10/16/2013
    By: from Europe

    These waders fit and are like a pair of Levis jeans! Very comfortable and not as big as other products in size M. Would definitely buy them again.

    I ordered a pair of medium Pack and Travel Wader Trousers online on Monday and they were delivered on Thursday. I emailed a query on Thursday evening about the product and had an answer within the hour, that’s customer service - Thanks for your assistance Dan G. The trousers look to be well constructed albeit somewhat generous in the waist area for my size -5’11 and a 34 waist. I suggest the actual waist measurements be included in the sizing chart.

    Tough to please, guy. - 9/9/2013
    By: from Texas

    I did a considerable amount of wader research before deciding on the Orvis SonicSeam technology. I was going to order a Chest high pair, however, the day I was ordering was also my 70th birthday. Although I am in excellent physical shape, I decided to be more realistic about my personal safety in the future. As Dirty Harry (Clint Eastwood) said, "A man's got to know his limitations". Thus, I decided on the Waist high pair. Wading to crotch level is good enough. As a bonus, they are lighter in weight, and easier to put on. I ordered size Large. My normal shoe size is 11 and these are a bit snug around the toe -- otherwise they would be 5 star.

    Great product sizing strange - 8/28/2013
    By: from Delft, Netherlands

    Bought these for some travel to Slovenia and the US and wanted something lightweight and easy to pack. They are great quality and pack small. No issues so far. Only problem (which is why 4*) is the sizing. I chose Medium Long and although it should fit my feet they are rather tight! Hopefully they will stretch a little.

    Great - 5/4/2013

    These are the best thing since "sliced bread". Light, comfortable, wear 'em all day, easy to get into - I love them.
