View Full Version : OVERSIZE waders....and boots

04-30-2012, 10:07 PM
I've got a friend who wants to trout fish. Big problem so far. His shoe size is 16 and a half. That's right. He's also 6'7". That's right. Where on earth do you look for waders and boots for this behometh? Any help would be crucial to his future as a trout fisherman. The largest size I've seen so far is 14 and that was Simms.

I ran across this once, fit him in the body with the waders & he carried them to a dive shop & had the feet customized, of course, that voided the warranty on the waders:frown:

OS Systems makes waders and drysuits and does custom work. Thanks to Grumpy for jogging my memory.

Sounds like my son-in-law, but he doesn't fish- poor man. Simms has a custom shop- go online for their instructions for fitting and ordering; sorry I don't have it. Go to LRO and the folks there might be able to help as they are a Simms retailer.

Thanks for the help guys, appreciate it. Simms custom shop sounds promising.

The Simms guys should be @ troutfest if you could wait til then maybe you could get them to answer your questions. Maybe get a deal too.

Give bigcammo.com a look. They have big and tall waders.
