Can you use more suggestions?  Google stuff to find Big and Tall waders that may be larger than that which you are easily able to find ready-made.

 

 Model BigBoy Itasca Waders:

  • Big Man Sizing:  2XLT, 3XL, 4XL, 5XL, 6XL, 8XL, 10XL
  • The XXTall Selection of 15s and 16s in a 38” Inseam.
  • Boot Size Range: Size 10, Size 12, Size 13, Size 14, Size 15, Size 16, EEEE, 4E, Wide, Extra wide, X-wide

 

Custom made waders are another consideration to get exactly what you would like—if you really need ($$$) exactly what you would like!  icon25.gif

 

Something else to think about:  Don’t be afraid of buying a boot size larger.  I prefer this because this makes them easier to get on and off.  They can be literally shaken off.  I don’t need to do much hiking in them but at the rate I fish in them, I don’t find this to be uncomfortable and I have never needed wear plusher or an extra pair of socks.  However, the extra room will allow this, if you find it necessary. 

 

Additionally, either more sock or just the extra dead air space will help keep ones feet warmer.

LL Bean, and if they ever leak you can return them for new ones

For the $ you can't beat Cabelas line...have been wearing their breathable for at least the last eight years or so and every time they leak I send them back and receive a new pair at no charge.

Not sure what your budget is but I can tell you this,buy the best waders you can afford.You won't regret it.You can be in the the right place at the right time fishing wise but if your waders are uncomfortable(or leaky) you're going to be miserable.That said,I too am a dainty 6'5" and 260lbs and have had great luck with Patagonias.I was going on my fourth hard season with my Water masters, which are now sort of the low end in the Patagonia line(around $299).When two of my rambunctious cats turned them into swiss cheese.They are bulletproof(just not cat proof) and do have king size which are very roomy and have some nice features.Now I do most of my fishing from my kayak and I prefer splash pants and wet wading but I needed a pair for "shore only" days.I found the Redington CPX waders(not the zip front ones) and have really enjoyed them.Very comfortable and well made and a bargain @ around $139.00.Theres lots of good waders out there,try as many as you can.I recommend breathable ones that have some sort of built in wading belt.Good Luck

I might be mistaken but I think Precision Pack made a wader for the larger guy.

Snow Bee's are not sold in the US anymore
Precision Pack got out of the wader business

Awesome Advice.   Just so sad Still that those old Red Balls Went outta business I worship and patch my old pair annually.I grabbed  a XXL heavy insulated set of rip curls from the auction place. If you have access to  a pool hold em' under w rocks and reinforce with a few patches. I got a great XXL wetsuit for $20 + ship 2 patches and I can hang with those cold water dudes off the point.  For big guys. a wetsuit should be in the arsenal. to avoid getting flooded. I've been flooded a couple times w the wader shirt belt combo.  I don't like walking back up the sand toward the light under water ;)   Of course I take chances I shouldn't NEEDING to get to that one rock.  . .  Oooh & I'll check out BigCamo " Sounds good..

“Make do” possibility:

 

 One might be on a trip when a leak is discovered. Try putting your leg into a plastic bag before needing to put your foot back into the boot of wader that hasn’t dried and will get wet again, either way.  This would be just like putting plastic bags on children’s feet which allows moms to more easily get boots on them, over their shoes (and off again).

 

tigermaple5, in addition to those which I use, I still have a rubber pair and an insulated canvas pair of Red Ball.  It was a good brand.  I trying something:  In an earlier post some time ago, about wader repair ideas

Inthered Thanks... Yes I need to go over my old red balls again soon too for spring. They look like A patched up pair of over alls form a litlle rascals episode. But they're still my favorite waders.
