Wader size!

Recommended Posts

So i was thinking about buying the hodgman h3 breathable waders, Im 5,7 150 lb so the medium seems perfect right? But I wear a size 12 foot or a size 13 wading boot! So do you guys think medium will fit? Some context This is for WA steelhead/salmon river fishing.. But yeah let me know what you guys think http://www.hodgman.com/Hodgman-size-charts.html This is the sizing chart

The only way to know is to try them on.  ALWAYS buy a pair larger than you think you need. You don’t want to stress the seams when climbing over trees or crawling down an embankment. Extra room also gives you room for added layers underneath for when the  weather and water get cold.

Agreed on going a bit big on waders. Leaves room for layering and moving. Honestly the best thing is to actually try on the pair you are looking at. I have gone thru many pairs of breathable, stocking foot and boot foot and each company runs a different size. Breathables are fantastic

X3 on going a bit bigger. Also try them on with the boots you plan to wear.

 

You'll want to get booties that fit your feet so those mediums will be too small IMO. Sure the neoprene will stretch but you'll stress the seams too much and cause leaks (happened to me). I wear a 13 shoe and get a XL wader so I get that 12/13 neoprene bootie with plenty of room to layer for the colder months/water.

I think getting bigger waders would be good, but I’m worried that they will be too big and they will not fit. Getting like a L or Tall medium will be super big on me. I’ll probably just order the h3 boots online then go i store to try out the waders but thanks for all the commets

Don't let those guys on NatGeo running around the woods at night with all the instruments see this....

How is that even possible?

I'd suggest the M tall, only 2 more inches in inseam and accommodate 10 extra pounds of person versus the medium but you'll get the better sized bootie.
