Patagonia SST Waders

I am thinking of buying a pair of these waders from Sierra Trading Post. I would appreciate feedback from anyone on the board who owns a pair.

I picked up a pair of these waders and they are great. The only word off caution I would offer is that they run a little big. I am 6' 180 and ordered a size medium. The waders are just short of my armpits.

Thumbs up Worth their weight

Bought them in 2000 on-line (a very good deal) and like them enough to recommend them.
I'm 6'1", 195 and wear the Large Long. They are just right for when you have to squat, bend over, crouch....
I originally purchased the SST (non-neoprene feet) and had leaking problems at the seams. I was talking to a local shop worker and they gave me the choice to either grab another pair of SST's off the shelf or pay the difference and up-grade. I opted for the latter and they sent the waders back in to Patagonia.
If you do get the SST+ and are looking at their shoes, buy one size up. Street shoes are 11.5 to 12. My Marlwalkers are 13 and fit nicely.
Hope this helps,
Mitch

I bought a pair this summer at the patagonia outlet and I love them. The only problem I have is the same one webbie mentioned. They run quite large. I bought an xl, which is what I wear in almost every other brand- the patagonias are huge on me. I'm about 6' 210, and I would've been better of with a large, or possibly even a medium, the XLs are that big.

foot size?

I've been very tempted when I see the nice prices on the SST+ waders, but the sizing seems to leave me out. My shoe size is 13, but inseam is only 30", 6'1" 245lb. As I recall, to get to a 13 foot, you get a very long inseam. Do the foot sizes seem to run large?

Thumbs up get 'em

A "RFS" (Really Famous Steelheader) told me that they were the most durable breathables he'd ever used.

I did end up getting a pair in August 2002, shortly after I posted this note. I used them for 8 days on the Dean that year and I liked the fact that you can roll down the tops while still wearing the suspenders, nice for those long walks. One complaint I do have concerns the gravel gaurds, they seem too short and they don't stay in place, pretty much useless.

Macspey - The stockingfoot size appears to run a little large. I usually wear an 11 street shoe. The size chart says that mediums are up to size 10. They fit me fine.
