lol. She's looking for a pair that won't swallow her.

I can't vouch for them personally, but I've seen "women's/youth" waders on both the Cabela's and Bass Pro websites. It's worth a look.

I'm acquiring gear a little bit at a time. This year was new boots, next year, maybe waders. :wink:

Appreciate it

Postby mallardhen70 » Wed Nov 14, 2007 9:51 am

I'll give anything a try. Been checking Cabela's and looking at Bass Pro. Not much at Bass Pro except for the guys. Problem is that I'm barely 5'2" and most all of the waders hit me at about chin level!!! :rofl:

My husband has been helping me look and we've got a friend who found her a pair and she's about my size.

I appreciate all the comments though. Thx

What about youth sizes? Seems like they'd be shorter.

Waders

Postby mallardhen70 » Wed Nov 14, 2007 10:34 am

If the pair from Cabela's won't work then I may have to try the youth sizes. My friend's fit her pretty good and she's only about a half size difference from me so I'm crossing my fingers that these will work.

Good luck. :)

I'll be interested to see what pair works for you, I'm only two inches taller, and I'll be in the market for waders eventually.

I'll let ya know then. Gonna go for the thicker neoprene though I think so I don't freeze to death. The birds may like the cold but I don't!!! :no:
