Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fishing and boating pants I will no longer buy traditional waders again. These pants are absolutely a game changer when it comes to staying dry, and feeling safe in big water conditions. I typically wear large but read a review and sized up to XL, cuz I larger thighs and backside. 5'11" and 34 in waist 200 lbs. My wife got a small and she likes them too

Hi, i was wondering if these pants completely seal at the ankles? Does any water come in at the ankle?

I am trying to replace my husband's leaking waders. What would I need to purchase in addition to this item to accomish this? He will be using them primarily for fly fishing.

Asked by: Ahix
These bibs are a great choice for fly fishing. The only other item that is required would be wading boots.

What paddling jacket will work with these waders that will make it comparable to a dry suit? I'm looking to use them both for a sit on top kayak. Thanks for your help. Brian

Asked by: Swopie
The Kokatat Hydrus 3L Stoke Paddling Jacket is the best choice for getting as close to a dry suit as possible.
