do cabelas brand waders typically run true to size? is a 9 really a 9? i'm looking at the neostretch, and 800 light mag's. off season sale shopping, heck yeah.

the awesome hip boots i have now run big, example my 8's fit more like 9's. i just want more coverage for my buttage. i'm 5'9", 150 lb, 32 waist.

if anybody can help.... thanks!

In my experience no - I have the light mags and some breathables with a seperate boot, and I would say they run a bit large. I wear a sz 13 shoe/boot typically, but in my light mags the boot is a 12 and they are still a bit large. I could MAYBE slip down to an 11 but I would rather have a little more room than necessary verses a tight fit.

I wear a size 8.5 and I have size 6 waders, and I usually wear at least one pair of wool socks and a thinner liner. That said, I like my boots a bit tight, exp when I can't lace them tight: There is nothing worse than getting blister on the back of your heel, while standing in 18" of water, when the air temp is 25.

I have a set of 1600s size 12. Boot size they are pretty true, but they are so long. I have the straps adjusted as short as they'll get and they are still and inch or two long....am I'm not short by any means, I'm 6'1"

The boots run big. I order the same size as the shoe I wear, this accounts for the big sock. Personally, however, I wear my waders loose because that offers the best blood flow and keeps me the warmest. If I did a lot of walking I would get them to actually fit me.

I got the same size as my shoe and find it works well for me. I like having the option of thick socks on though. I HATE cold feet. Early season I wear 2 pair of thin socks to reduce blisters. But come Dec/Jan I love having toasty toes.
