    I'm looking for a decent pair of insulated, waterproof, and windproof bib overalls for duck hunting this winter. Went to Walmart today, and they had a nice Remington set for about $80. Only problem is the inseam was about 2-3 inches too short. I'm a pretty big guy, about 6'6" 235 lbs. In jeans I usually wear a 36" or 38" waist with a 36" inseam. So do any of you other big and tall hunters know of a store (chain or online) that sells "tall guy" hunting clothes? I'm hoping to keep it under $150 or so, but when you don't fit the 5'10" 180 lbs mold, sometimes you have to pay a little more. Thanks for the help.:)

    One word Cabelas


    I got mine at a reasonable price a few weeks ago. Not quite 6'6" but 6'1" and not BIg but slightly tall, I bet you'll find a good set at a good price.

    I agree, Cabelas rules, but one warning, you'll get catalogs nearly every week for the rest of your life.

    One more word on it.....Bass Pro Shop advertises tall sizes, but many of their shirts and pants aren't any longer at all. Some are. Its a crap shoot. I like Bass Pro, but I order clothes from Cabellas.

    Hodgeman makes a good set of neoprene waders for big guys. I'm 6'4 and typically wear a 34-36 inch inseam. They make a xxl tall version that fit me just fine (I went for the stocking foot, because I have big feet but they also make rubber boot bottoms). I got them at Academy when I still lived in TX, but you should be able to pick them up at Big 5 or sportsman's paradise.

    Yeah cabelas and the catalogs have to stop.

    One word of advice, if you do order waders from them, call them and they can provide assitance in helping you select. I was so confuse and had no clue as to what I was doing, that with out their help I would still be scratching my head.

    watch for big & tall, or tiny & small on closeout...
    I'm continually finding the extreme sizes, especially at sierra, while shopping for bargains to fit my average frame...
