The Shield Uninsulated Waders from Gator Waders seemed durable, but I ran into a different problem. I am 6 feet tall and weigh 175. I ordered a size 10 long, and the waders are absolutely huge. I could literally fit two of me in them. I called Gator and asked about the sizing. The lady I spoke with gave me nothing but attitude and didn't know sizes even after asking me what I wore in pants. I asked about returning them, and she told me to refer to Guidefitter, and she couldn't help. I'm sad because the waders seemed decent but were outrageously too big. I cant imagine how big the "Stout" version is. If you are "stout" I recommend trying the regulars first. I'm still trying to figure out my return though, and Gator did NOT seem too inclined to help a Guidefitter user on one.
