Re: Need youth waders
The WaderUSA site suggests buying breathable waders based upon inseam, and that you should get them 3-4" longer than your actual measurement. The reason being when you squat down or sit, and the measurement worked perfectly for me using that advice....In fact it explains why other waders I've purchased including neoprene have been restrictive.
Next, women's chest waders often take into account some extra form fitting for breasts and hips. So it's not just a cut and dry size thing. As an example, women's on the left, men's right.
Their small $99 FroggTogg Hellbender chest waders (which I absolutely love mine) are listed as being for an adult 6-8 shoe size, and having a 34" inseam (so meaning to let him grow some a 28" inseam would mean he'd have 2" to grow into them).
Check WaderUSA and see what they can fix you up with. I've found them to be a solid company in my transaction.
