I have the women’s stocking foot waders and liked them a lot for the most part—fit well, convenient pockets, and they kept me dry...until several pinhole leaks developed in one of the stocking feet after about 20 uses. I would have sent them in for repair under warranty, but I bought them from steepandcheap and they just opt to exchange rather than repair. By the time I contacted them they no longer had the Compass waders in stock, so I’ll probably go with another brand. Can’t say that my experience is representative of the brand as a whole, though.
I have a pair that I beat the heck out of for a year. They were repaired once and about 6 months later they started leaking again. I had the tailwater waders I think is what they are called. They fit well and are comfortable. I replaced them with Simms headwater pros that started leaking around the booties in less than two months after fishing with them four times. I may just be unlucky
