Amazing that there is so much difference in size and fit between two different wader models in size XXL.
Ever since William Joseph came up with the new version of their excellent Drynamic waders, I have wanted them. I ordered a pair in size XXL through Fred's tackle, but unfortunately, they didn't fit me properly. They are meant for someone not taller than 6'1". They would be perfect for a stockier guy around 5'10' - 6' and between 230-260 pounds. As a result, I had to leave them at Fred's and look for alternatives within my wader budget of 300 bucks.
After trying out a bunch of other models, today I became the proud owner of a new set of BARE's Adams waders. They fit me very comfortably, and I had them on all day and made them work quite hard. So far so good. Hopefully, they won't develop a leak in the crotch area like their predecessor. Looking forward to several fishing seasons out of them.
If someone wants to check out the William Joseph Drynamic waders in XXL at Fred's, by all means do so.
You didn't hear it from me, but Fred is willing to let them go at a very good price (better than USA price)
It is a one-time deal, as Fred doesn't carry WJ waders on a regular basis.
