I purchased a pair of Palix River Waders in Late December 2011, I used them about 6 times and the seam on the inside of both knees started to wear through and leak. I sent them back to Redington and 1 week later I had a new pair on my doorstep.I'll try them again with better luck hopefully. I also have the Palix river boots and love them. I do a lot of walking to get to some of my fishing spots and they are very comfortable. I must say I am impressed with their customer service and standing behind their products. Even though I had a problem I would buy more of their products. I would probably step up to the Sonic Pro Waders though.
