I have been trying to find waders for my moose hunting partner for our drop in lake hunt this fall. He is 6' 2" and about 240 lbs and wears a size 15 shoe. All of the chest waders or pant style waders that I can find only go to size 14 and even then are made for someone with a size 48 waist. He's about a size 38 - 40 waist.
I have looked at (online) Barney's Sourdough slipper and Wiggy's Waders and don't know if these would be adequate for a drop in lake hunt (area 12).
He currently has a pair of neoprene stockingfoot waders that work but need patched. I was thinking neoprene would not be preferred for a fall hunt.
BTW..I emailed Wiggy's and asked them about their waders, what size to get, and how they compare in design to Barney's Sourdough Slipper. I was kinda taken back by the president's reply:
"I have no idea as to what that company sells nor do I care.
I know that what I make and sell works for the purpose it is to be used.
Sorry for the tough attitude.
Must not have had his coffee this morning???
