Get in touch with Diver Dave and see what he has in stock that could be suitable for you.

Google diver dave waders.

This might sound daft but make sure whatever you go for is a good fit.
If the seams get stressed then they'll leak sooner rather than later.

It most certainly is NOT daft!
My biggest mistake has been to buy waders with too short a leg: makes it incredibly hard to get in and out of the river, and the knees puncture easily. The inside leg seams go pretty fast, too.

So easy to buy on line now once you have found what you want make etc
get them home try them on instead of in a shop then just send them back which ever does not fit you correctly
may cost you a a few pounds more just think its better for you to make the correct choice instead of in a shop and the assistant getting bit bored you taking so much time
ps Buy new not second hand or repaired ones

Breathable waders i always buy seam sealed from diver dave.Anytime i ever bought new waders they alway's leaked from new or shortly after.I would have to seam seal them myself.They are practically new & already sealed from dave & cheaper than buying new leaky ones.
