I'm an Orvis fan, own countless reels and other gear. Be aware, the tailwater xt waders are junk, as well as any wader they have put out in the past 4 years. I am a casual, careful angler and went through 3 pairs of Silver label (2 design models) and 2 pairs of tailwater XT's. All waders either started to leak or fall apart after 7 or 8 uses. One of my fishing buddies is way too loyal to Orvis and they can do no wrong in his mind. We fished the other day, I watched as he took his tailwaters off and noticed his left sock was pretty wet........he quickly put his shoe on, but the waders leak. He has maybe worn them 15 times. Fortunately Orvis has their 100% satisfaction policy &, this is why I still buy their other products.
I have since moved over to Simms waders and could not be happier.
