breathable waders
Hello friends.
I will arrive to New York City on next week and I want to buy breathable waders like Classic waders of Hodgman (or something like them).
Can you recommend me a fishing tackle store in New York, please.
Thank's.
Michael.

I presume that you are coming from abroad to New York City. Never been there except to run from one plane to another plane.

This will have Orvis only:

I've learned that all breathable waders are not created equal. You may want to find a couple of sportsstores in your area and try a few pair on.

I've also learned that just because they are more expensive doesn't necessarily mean that they are better quality. My father bought a pair for significantly more than I did and his already has a hole even though we use them about the same number of times during the year.

Anyway, I personally would do a little research and try on a few before making a decision.

Totally Agree, of course only time will tell if you got a good pairLaughLaugh
And by all means, try the waders of choice on with the shoes of choice to make sure everything fits.
I also recommend, specially in breathables, to do the squat in them.

Hi,
the problem is that I live in Israel and actually my sister and not me will arrive to New York. So I can't try the waders, I can just order it.
Thank's to all friends.
Michael.

just a suggestion, but if I am not mistaken orvis and other big sites have measurment charts on their sites based on height, weight etc.. ask you sister for that information and go from there.. it may be a little big on her but that is pretty much what you want.. something that is comfortable to wear for a long period of time in a variety of situations (standing, sitting, squatting etc)..

These guys bring up a good point. The waders size charts are pretty dead on. The only discrepancy might be in the foot/bootie, that will/may require a larger shoe.
For the most part however, if the bootie on the wader is a good fit, then you should be able to buy the shoe in your size as they do allow for the neoprene in most cases. If that bootie is a little big however, you will need a bigger shoe. My bootie is actually at least 2 sizes too big (men's waders) and I had to buy my shoe two sizes bigger.
