    Default Waders

    Looking to buy waist height waders. I can't seem to find a waist size and stocking boot size that match what I need. 32 waist ,11 foot , do the feet stretch out enough to not worry about the fit . I live in South Florida so the only place I have to try on waders is BPS .poor selection, there brand I can fit 2 people my size in. Any recommendations?

    Also looking replace my boots, I am intrigued by the workers, being able to change soles to meet different situations and laws. Any long term users having any problems with the system

    i have been wading in my Korkers since the first of the year. Absolutely no issues at all with the soles. I fish quite a bit and walk in to fish, so they get a lot of trail time as well. Since I got them, I've probably waded with them 60-75 trips so far.

    Surfdog...we have had very good results from the Korkers boots. The sole system is solid and almost never has any issues.

    Simms Freestone Pant waders are a great wader. The Medium size would be pretty close for you. The bootie size is 9-11. It would be pretty close with a size 11 foot. If you order a pair and they don't fit right you can always send them back to us.

    6' tall, 32 waist, size 11 boot; medium Simms fit me perfect. I also wear Korkers, but don't change soles. I wear the felt all the time and just replace the soles when they wear out. The replaceable soles make it easy.

    I should have said I am looking to go cheap on the waders , will only use them 5-10 days a year . the boots will see more use and like Forest quoted LT Dan , you've got to take care of your feet. Daniel you will be seeing an order from me soon

    I went with Daniels suggestion and bought the simms freestone pants, first since I have only known bass pro shop waders the quality of the build and materials was noticed right away . they proved to be very comfortable and not having the suspenders /shoulder strap was a plus when wearing my sling pack. never got into water deep enough to worry about the difference in height. As for the boots I did go with the Korkers black horse boots. I need good ankle support and these boots provided the support I needed with flexibility to still move athletically. the boa lace system was simple and very easy to use especially in the cold mornings. I won't use these items enough to wear them out just hope their quality will last many years before they rot

    I recommend you to buy from Mixxmix Coupons at Reecoupons.
    Because I also got one from there and they are the real piece of comfort, available at a very cheap price.
    I am pretty sure you will also like it.

    I am on the other end of the spectrum size wise. Don't laugh as my measurements are correct. I am around 5' 2" tall on a good day. My waist is 44 and my inseam is 22.5, and 6.5 shoe size. I contacted Simms about having a custom pair made for me. They said they could make them and for only $800 thank you. I decided to just forget the waders completely and wet wade with wading boots. I don't fish much in the winter anyway and from spring to the end of fall I am good to go.
