Finding Waders for Tweenagers is tough.

 My kids are at that age where they can't wear small adult sizes but they are out growing the largest youth sizes. Trying to find waders for them was a daunting task. I either found waders for toddlers or young adults but nothing for that sweet spot in the middle. I finally ran across BASSDASH IMMERSE Kids Breathable Chest Fishing Waders.

These were more than I wanted to pay but I it was hard finding breathable waders that fit what I was looking for. I was impressed by the quality of the waders when I received them. They felt just like my breathable waders from Sims or Redington. The stitching and material seemed to be high quality and I think these waders will be fairly durable. Time will tell. I plan to use them this weekend with the kids for the first time.

Finding boots was another interesting adventure. Luckily both my kids wear around a size 8 wms shoe and I found some boots at BassPro.

This wasn't the cheapest setup but it fit my criteria. I wanted waders that would fit properly and wouldn't be prone to filling with water if the kids fell in. I also wanted boots that wouldn't be slippery even in mud. Keeping the kids safe is my highest priority. I posted this in the hopes it will help anyone else in the same position looking for gear. My kids are just under 5ft and these waders fit them great. They fit properly around the legs and chest. The waders come with a belt and have reinforced legs to help with going through thick brush.
