thought i would pass this info. along to anyone interested. I often wondered at the price disparity between mens'/womens waders and the difference in sizes. I needed a new pair so I purchased a pair of NIB Simms G3 womens XL for a mere $155 (Yes, thats $155 & $10 for shipping for waders that retail for approx. $429) off Ebay to see for myself if it really mattered. I figured if they didn't fit, I'd just resell them. I'm 5'7", approx 195lbs, 43" chest 40' waist and wear a size 9 shoe. All the waders I own or have tried to fit my fat ass into have booties way too big. I received the waders yesterday and much to my satisfaction and surprise,found them to fit exceptionally well (perfect foot fit without all that extra neoprene to try to cram in my booties/shoes). They even have extra room in the "kazoo" area so you won't get that squished feeling sitting in a float/pontoon all day and have to keep digging around to breath or wearing them while your driving. Notwithstanding, we know the quality of Simms (I have NO affiliation with the Co.) The point is gentlemen, you may be able to save some significant, all important dollars here. Get a gal to help you with the size conversions for your frame.
