Breathable Waders for tall folk?

Postby nearicefarmer » Sun Sep 16, 2012 10:18 am

Looking for breathable waders with longer inseam. LL Bean and maybe Lacrosse king size are the ones ive found so far. What do you tall folk recommend? I am a 36 inseam. Thanks for any info and opinions.

It really sucks trying to find wader when you're tall doesn't it?! And if you're tall and have big feet like I do - good luck! I've got a pair of Orvis waders that I use while fishing and really like them. Orvis does make one breathable hunting wader in Max4 but it's pretty pricey...

Don't know what you're other measurements are, but maybe those will work for you.

I'm watching this thread as well. I not only need a 36" inseam, but also need a size 16 or 17 boot.

So far I've only found one pair from Bass Pro in 5MM neoprene.

I'm 6'3 and I have the Orvis waders that have the boots that lace up. Love them so far and they are nice and tall.

It's good to see that I'm not the only pissed off tall guy around here!! :mad: I've been researching this matter for about 3 months and there is not a breathable HUNTING wader to be found. Alpha swampfox by lacrosse were making a king size till last year Hodgman did a tall wader in 2010, but cabelas hasn't had a tall breathable for about 4 years!! :eek: Just ordered a tall size of neos:mad: last week but I did put in a request through cabelas on making a line of TALL breathable waders... PLEASE PUT IN A REQUEST AT CABELAS!! We might make something happen :thumbsup: :beer:

I just ordered the big ditch at MPW. they come tall, and are only 3.5 mm neo... so that seemed a good middle. not too hot, not too cold. we will see

I thought I remember people complaining that their Cabelas Waist High Breathables were way to tall for the average person. Might work if you can settle for waist high waders.
