Are they worth the money? On sale now for $120 for both bibs and jacket. Your thoughts.

My zipper broke on my first jacket and academy replaced it no questions asked. Been using the new one and the original bibs for 2 years now with no issues.

I got soaked through the first time I wore mine. I returned it the next day. I'd recommend spending the money to get Gortex.

Me and the wife have them, haven't been in a solid 8 hr down pour but haven't had any issues, not a warm pair but for the price and as many time as u will use them, not a bad deal...

I have the new suit which is much better than the previous one. So far I have worn it twice in some good rain with no leaks.

Buy it, get a can or 2 of ScotchGuard and trust me, it will not leak. I treat mine about every 6 months. Fished this morning in a downpour, I was very, very dry. Buy with confidence, just save the receipt if you have a problem like a broken zipper or something like that. Take the $300-$400 you save over another suit and spend it on a graph upgrade.

I have enjoyed mine. Haven't had it leak or anything yet. Not as heavy as Guidewear but not as warm either.

Just bought it last fall, worn twice. Comfortable, inexpensive compared to many others.
Go for it !!
God Bless

I have one, mine is blue, wish it was black. I don't think mine has ever been wet so far. I keep in in the boat in the summer, its not as heavy as some of the others. I'm sure it will do fine for no more rain than I like to be in.

I have had mine for 4 years and have no regrets, it never leaked but I went ahead and put scotch guard on it anyway. Good value for the price.
