Why can't someone make waders that feel like dockers?

I am a ginormous guy...and can't find a pair of waders to fit my fat calves...I know...many of you have heard me lament this on here before...

Husky angler is out of business...Big Camo breathables (might have been Patagonia) don't come close in the 3XL...even the Kings in Simms don't fit my calves...still looking for a custom shop for waders.

Just seems like some company should be able to create a pair of Wading pants or waders that feel like dockers...

No need to respond...just my normal rant....

Boss

Have you given Simms a call concerning your plight? Maybe they could help you with their custom sizing programs. It's not cheap but Simms is the only wader company I can think of that offers this service. Good luck with your search. Matt

I alway bought STOUT waders. My wide part is/was the hips.

Jack,

It looks like Jack's actually has some liquid left in the bottle!

I used to know a few people that would have drank the robo too.

Ah yes, robo and jack. Not many bars serve that anymore.

My bottle was brand new when I poured that shot and It doesn't look much worse right now. I didn't feel like getting zonked yesterday, so I just had a few swigs here and there.

Jack,

Thanks for the tip on the Evan Williams sale at the State Store. I picked up a couple fresh bottles tonight. I find I don't crave the Robo nearly as much when there's Evan in the house...

Boss,

Let me know if you do find a good solution for your larger waders. I'm not getting any smaller myself.

I have the same troubles in the calves. I hate to say it, but my cheap $89 ProLines have been in action for 3 years, fit well, and have taken a beating. I bought a pair of Redingtons last year just because and they are way to tight in the calves.

I wear Simms and they are tight on the calves for sure, but I also have a pair of Cabela's waist-highs that have tons of room in the legs and seat... they are cut very generously and I have been very happy with the quality so far.
