Anybody have any particular expertise with Reddington sonic-welded waders?

Good or bad, I'd like to know.

Fold the seam and it cracks. Period. Every time. I have no idea if they leak afterward, but it's so disconcerting to see that I couldn't possibly trust them, so I couldn't ever wear them.




Pinch the seam. It cracks. Every time. Every. Time.


Unbelievable it's crazy tO see.

i never had a seam crack for me. i got the pair with the zipper. i was skeptical. i mean, it's a zipper. i've been in mine only 20 or 30 days now but not a single problem. i recommend.

I've had two pairs, both leaked. I like their reels, but the waders, not so much.

Customer service is good though.

Just got a pair a couple weeks ago. I've only worn them once, but no leaks. You are going to hear good and bad with any pair or brand of waders out there, or at least I did. I like the company, the technology(leased from Orvis) and figured I'd be a guinea pig for others. So far so good!
