I purchased these proline hip boots for my 7-year-old son. He and I regularly fish great lakes river for trout and salmon. I have searched everywhere for youth waders/hip boots - Cabelas, Bass Pro, Gander Mountain, Dick's = no luck. I have used Shoebuy dozens of times for athletic and work shoes so on a whim, I decided to search for waders. To my surprise, they sold hip boots in his size. He's tiny for his age and has had to fish in rubber boots for quite some time. It's tough fishing with calf-height boots when the rivers are up due to spring rains. I always have to bring a change of clothes because he ends up soaked. Different story with the Pro Line Waders. The boy made it back to the truck dry! This is the ONLY product in his size. Plus, the price was fantastic. Last Sunday we put them to the test...and they they worked out great. We hiked ~2miles along the stream, no complaints. They performed flawlessly while in the stream. The most important point = THIS IS THE ONLY PRODUCT AVAILABLE FOR REALLY YOUNG FISHERMEN AND HUNTERS, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT!
