Default clear water waders

I've got some clearwater waders, had em for a while, it says that they are easily converted to waist high waders. For the life of me i can not figure out how to convert these things. Does anyone know how to do this?

I'm sure there is a really simple explanation but...

Thanks.

Boone: The waders I see on the internet and magazines that say they convert to waist high waders all seem to say you tuck the chest portion down below the belt. I've never owned a pair or tried them on so I have no idea of how comfortable that might be.

Thanks, thats the only way that i could figure that it would work. I like you didnt see that as being very comfortable so i decided to see if there was some other way. Thanks I'll give it a shot regardless just to see how it goes.

I have a pair of Tailwater waders and yes, you just tuck the upper part down into the waders. As far as comfort, you really don't even notice the top part being tucked in. They do get a little hot hiking on a warm day.
I wear mine tucked in all the time unless I know for sure I'll need the exta coverage.
Hope that helps,

thanks i appreciate the response. So how does it work with the belt and stuff? What keeps it from continually creeping down? It seems like it would have to fold over thebelt or something.
