To order, please determine if you wear a stock size or if you need custom shortening. Custom shortening requires a phone order.
If you need custom sizing:

The first thing I noticed about these waders are the extremely high quality materials and excellent craftsmanship put into them. Everything from the Velcro on the pockets to the buckles on the shoulder straps and super high quality material. No cutting corners on materials that I could find. I'm a big guy at 6'8" and 270#'s, so I was ready and willing to order a custom pair. But after my measurements I found I fit into the XL long perfectly. If your used to neoprene, these will definitely have a different feel to the fit. They don't stretch and move with you like neoprenes do. This worried me when I first had them on around the house, but after my first duck hunt in them it wasn't a problem at all. The Bogs boots are EXTREMELY comfortable. Much more so than any other wader boots I've had on my feet. The waders come up higher on the chest than other waders I've owned do. Which allowed me to venture into deeper water to set and retrieve decoys. The waders are un-insulated which I noticed when in the water setting/retrieving decoys. But I wasn't layered for cold weather. The insulated Bogs were very warm, however. As the weather continues to get colder I'm sure proper layering will keep me nice and toasty. I've only used these in the field once so far and have a long season ahead to give them a proper test. But so far, I'm VERY impressed with these waders.
These are very quality waders - and while they're not the quietest waders you've ever walked in - they are going to be the driest.
I love that they are customizable --- and that they are made in America!
There was one mistake when I received mine (metal d rings instead of plastic) but a quick phone call and they OVERNIGHTED the correct d rings to have put on. Let's be honest - people a human and mistakes are made - but it shows what a company is made of when they fix the problem with such haste.
When my 3 boys stop growing I'm going to outfit them in USIA waders.
These waders are far superior to anything put out by any other company. You get unmatched quality for less than half the price, not to mention the choices in customization. These things are built with pride and built to last. The warranty provided is second to none and lets you rest assured that these waders will be the last ones you buy for a long, long time. When ordering the sizing process is fool-proof and the time frame between manufacture, shipping, and retrieving is surprisingly short. It only took 3 weeks from order to delivery for mine. Function is perfect, i stood in the surf, waste deep, fishing in these for 10 hours one day and 8 the next and when I took them off I was bone dry. Couldn't ask for more, I strongly suggest USIA for waders in addition to any other product that they provide.
These waders ought to hold up well. The outer material is heavy duty and limbs and such won't tear it. I give 4 stars only because mine are custom order and they are tighter than I think they should be and I measure three times. Other wise I love em!
I bought a pair of these chest waders, custom made, and even requested a few modifications to the colored USIA logo. The president of USIA happily gave me a call and added their military subdued logo for me. When I received the product I immediately noticed the excellent craftsmanship and design. For the price you will pay for any good pair of waders, these proved far superior than commercial waders people buy at most outdoor stores for the same price. The extra high cut to the entire chest and back allowed me to move deeper into the cold Alaskan waters than others with commercial waders. They even threw in a nice USIA hat and awesome coin. Thanks USIA, I couldn't have made a better investment.
