FIT - these boots seem to run true to slightly small. From reading feedback about Drake's regular line, if you are concerned about boot fit, going up a size seems to be a good solution. Our customers are "more demanding" in many ways than Drake's small-sized customers, so we know you're concerned about this. The boots do tend to relax and fit better over time. MANY THANKS to DRAKE for making this custom run for the BigCamo.com crowd - we can't thank them enough!!

Due to size/weight, please note that every wader incurs an additional $12.00 non-refundable shipping charge. Air Shipping will definitely incur another surcharge above the dollar amount the checkout system calculates. We'll add this automatically, so please take note on Air Shipping. Thanks!
