I've had these waders for some time and really put them through some tough treatment both in the UK and abroad. The verdict so far is very favourable, they have performed brilliantly in very hot conditions and some biting cold weather. They have stood up well to bramble, blackthorn, heat, cold and travel. The Ikon Waders come with and without a zip front. I choose to use the ones without, but often roll the top down and use the shoulder straps as an additional waist belt. They have a good sized front chest pocket with waterproof zip on the outside and a inner zipped net pouch pocket. They are comfortable with plenty of room in them, robust and durable and good value.
