Designed with the boat hunter in mind, these waist-high breathable waders are ideal for any situation when full chest waders aren't a necessity. The EST Boat Pant is constructed of our 3-layer breathable wader fabric and reinforced on the seat and lower legs with HD2 material. The internal reinforced knee pads make it comfortable to kneel in a boat - a first in wader technology. The highly breathable fabric delivers a two-fold benefit: 1) this breathable wader is cool in warm weather and prevents overheating, especially during periods of high activity, and 2) prevents the build-up of moisture vapor, which causes chilling and shivering in cold weather. As the temperature gets colder throughout the season, you can add layers to suit the conditions. Materials: 3-layer waterproof/windproof/breathable fabric 600 gram Thinsulate boots HD2 material on knees, seat, back of thighs, lower legs, and covering the tops of the boots Features: Adjustable Boot-Lok system for customized comfort and stability Elastic waist Reinforced knee pads 2" webbing adjustable belt Instinctive Features™ EST

I wear about a size 9.5 shoe and 5'11" 175 and 32" pant size. First off, I have the LST chest waders in size 8 and the boots are still fairly loose, but the boot size in the EST boat pants size 8 are perfect, my toes barely touch the end (which is how I would rather it). I was hesitant to buy the boat pants since when I bend down in my LST chest waders they are really tight on the knees, to the point that it will pull hair off me knee, but the boat pants allow me to bend down and are all around comfortable.
I can live with the chest waders being tight in the knee because it makes it easier to get through mud, but for boat pants I am really happy they fit like I like them.
