Cabelas has many of thier branded waders in big sizes, but to figure out the size you'll need to go try them on.

Here are the ones I use. I do a lot of wading in cold weather & am very satisfied with them. Insulated & pretty tough. Measure around your chest to get an idea of what size you will need but it would be better if you could try them on like GRIZZ says. http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/templates/product/standard-item.jsp?_DARGS=/cabelas/en/common/catalog/item-link.jsp_A&_DAV=search_redir-cat20614_TGP&id=0033634830659a&navCount=3&podId=0033634&parentId=cat20614&masterpathid=&navAction=push&catalogCode=QT&rid=&parentType=index&indexId=cat20614&hasJS=true

Most waders are sized by shoe size, so go try some on and see what you think. - Roberta

Do not forget a good sharp knife and have it handy. If you stumble and fall you may have to cut them enough to get the water out and get them off. lol

I got mine at bps where I could try them one. Found nothing anywhere close locally that fit. Still had to get a shoe size larger to fit the rest of me. Think about what kind of surfaces you'll be standing and walking on before you buy. Since I use mine more in small streams, got the felt soles so they will slip less on the rocks. A buddy has rubber soles and has a real problem keeping balance on slick spots and wears himself out catching himself all the time.

i bought a set of the cabelas supermag waders last year to duck hunt in and absolutley love em.. they have 1600 grams of thinsulate and 5mm of neoprene and i havent had cold feet yet and thats been huntin in frozen swamps a few times last year. they are kinda pricey...around $190 but worth every penney imho. my 2 cents

I got my Neoprene waders from Bass Pro Shops, they have a chart you can read and get the chest and inseam size pretty close. I have short legs, and wide shoulders, so finding some for me was a challenge too. :rolleyes:

Try Lacrosse expandable you will not be disapointed these are for cold weather unless you want to try shedding pounds in the summer.

All I will add is don't go cheap on waders. I don't use them any longer since I don't duck hunt any longer, but I do have a lot of experience. Nothing worse than a leaking wader in cold weather!
