Juuuuust right -
I recently used my new stocking foot hippers on a small freestone brook trout stream and they were just right. They were cool enough on a hot day and left me enough flexibility for climbing over rocks and blow downs to get to the best spots. The new lower price makes them a much better option.
Don't Buy These! -

Theses stockingfoot hippers could be awesome if they would start looking at the reviews and listening about the problem. The stocking boots are too big. I wear a size 9.5 in most shoes and I am a shorter stocky guy so I ordered the Medium. Fit my legs fine even with jeans, but the feet were way oversized to the point I could get both feet in. So I sent them back and ordered the small. Little tight in the legs with jeans, but the feet were still too small. Friend of mine with size 13 feet stopped by and his foot was still swimming when he put his foot in. Yes, the feet were a little smaller than the mediums, but still too much material too the point I still can't get my size 10 wading boots on. Orvis, please listen and address the problem. If you do let me know and I will buy.
Excellent wader -
By: Smallstreamnympher from York, Pa
Received a XXL based on shoe size, but they were too big for a size 13 wading shoe. I exchanged them for a XL which fit perfectly and am able to wear a thick sock with them. Wish they had a gravel guard built in like chest waders to avoid a independent guard or boot guard.
Very good, but very big for the recommended size -
By: GilaCutThroat from New Mexico
These are great, very well made hippers. I wear a size 12 shoe and ordered the recommedned XL size. They are more like a size 15!. They still worked OK because my wading boots could handle them. If I would have known before, I would have odered a size smaller.

I have only gotten to use them one weekend but it was a good fisihng weekend because the quality of product was excellent and since I didn't have drag heavy hip boots or wders around I could fish all day with out the old wear and tear on my back and knees. I highly recommend this product.
Top Notch -

These waders are of high quality at an affordable price. I am 5'10" and weigh 150 lbs and the mediums fit perfect. They are perfect for those warmer days when you don't feel like getting wet. The waders are light weight and pack up very nicely making it easy to throw them in a back pack. I wouldn't recommend using these in colder months.
quality waders, odd sizing -
By: 2wtcruser from Virginia
These waders are great. I fish small mountain streams all the time and rely on my hippers. These are tough, breathable and I am happy I bought them. Only odd thing is the booties run really big. I had to return the mediums & get a small which is tight on the legs to get the bootie small enough. I wear a 8.5-9 men's shoe.
great for stream wading -
By: fishingprof from Colorado
I used my Orvis stocking foot hippers last week for the first time. They were comfortable to wear, the stocking feet are designed to fit very well, and the length was more than adequate for my 6'2" frame. When you don't need chest waders, these hip waders are perfect, and the price was very reasonable.
Good product but issues -
By: Bestpitch from Delmarva
I am a large person and the hippers are great, however, the buckles to tighten up the thigh should be set further apart to have a more snug fit when wearing the thighs. The gap would be an issue in the rain.
Not Quite Right -
At the sale price these waders are reasonable value. However, there are two major deficiencies. Firstly, there should be built in gravel guards. Secondly, the rubber around the ankles/lower shins is too bulky, making it less comfortable than it should be around the top of wading boots. As a result of the above two points, using separate gravel guards adds to the bulk around the ankles and adds to the degree of discomfort. The waders are certainly still functional but they could have been so much better.
