Still plenty of life in these great waders for a fraction of the cost of new ones.
I caught lots of salmon, steelhead and trout in these! When finished using my Big Chief waders, I always cleaned and dried them, then hung them up in a dark closet away from UV light (which damages stuff including rubber.). When stored for longer periods of time, I sealed them in a dark—but breathable—cardboard box at the back of an interior dark closet where NO UV rays could get to.
I checked the waders for any markings for a size number and could not find any numbers. However, I measured both of my feet for accuracy so you will know if your feet will fit:
My Left Foot: 11 &1/2 inches
My Right Foot: 11 inches
Both feet are comfortable and have extra room in one pair of wool socks over a thin, moisture-wicking pair of socks, and with two pairs of wool socks, my larger foot at 11&1/2” long is comfortably snug.
So that must mean that the waders are: SIZE 12
With smaller feet and extra layers of socks, one can easily adjust the fit. I always used a thin-moisture-wicking layer below and one or two pairs of wool socks above, and my feet in these waders were NEVER cold, even while fishing in 21 degree Fahrenheit (-6.1 degree C) air temperatures while standing in ice-edged rivers.
Brand new these waders cost $160 (when not on sale for $120 as seen in one photo)
