Some Advice

by RR

Great waders, but boots run a little small. I have a size 9.5-shoe size normally so I got a size 11 regular, but they seem a little tight, so make sure to get a bigger size than you think. Also there regular size waders are huge for a 5’8” 170lb person, wish they offered there short and slim in size 11 boot. Have not been out yet in these waders, but really comfortable and a huge upgrade from neoprene’s. They seem really warm. I was sick of going through a pair of neoprene waders every year so decided to spend the extra money on these breathable waders. A friend of mine has had Drake’s previous model of breathable waders for 3 seasons now with many hunts on them and no leaks, so I decided to get a pair.

Tight at the ankles and top of foot

by SouthArk

These seem like high quality waders but I never made it into the water with them. I wear an 11 medium width in shoes, but will need to return these. They fit fine around the foot in length and width but the ankle and top of the foot is really tight. I wore them in the house for an hour or so after trying them on initially and they actually cut off my circulation somewhat to my foot. Size up at least a size (and maybe two).

Breathable Waders

by Jake

I've worn a lot of different waders. I bought the drake MST neoprene, the drake LST's, Lacrosse 5mm, and Cabela's waders. Obviously the waders are gonna me more comfortable than neoprene. if you took the boots off of these and just weighed the remaining material I doubt it would weigh more than a couple pounds. THEY ARE LIGHT. My main concern was warmth, but I found out quickly they are plenty warm for what I need. I often hunt standing it thigh deep timber and I have taken these things through cold water as well as thorny bushes. they have held up through it all. People say the boots are too small but I disagree. they are Very hard to get on around the ankle but once on hey fit great. maybe go a size up but nothing crazy unless you like to wear multiple pairs of thick socks. If youre not gonna be breaking ice with these, you can wear them with nothing but sweat pants and a MST base layer youll be a little hot.

Boot too tight

by CaliforniaHunter

These wader's boot run really tight. It is pretty warm though. So if ordering get a size or 2 up. Might run long if you order boot size bigger but should be better than a tight boot.
