Try the waders on first of course, it may be a moot point. I always thought, in the back of my mind, that at some point I would go down the Simms-hole for waders, but when they were closing out the Blackfoot model, I found none of the sizes fit me well. Legs were too tight for comfort. when the legs fit well, the waders were too long and big. I even tried their top of the line model plus the Freestones i think, just to double check. Nope.
