Fit: Runs large

I ordered a Petite in Small. I am 5 ft short, actual inseam of 28.5 inches. The petite is stated as fitting a person with an inseam of 30 inches. Having owned another competitor brand in Small with a stated inseam of 29-30 inches, I thought I could get away with the small difference of 1.5 inches. This is not the case - Patagonia Petite is sized for up to 5 ft 4 inches and caters for the taller end of Petite. I measured the actual inseam of the wader from bottom of the heel to the crotch - that is 35 inches, vs 33 inches in the competitor wader. From the crotch to the top of the front bib is 22.5 inches - vs 18 inches in the competitor's wader. Hope this is of some use to height challenged persons like me. I also hope that Patagonia can list the minimum height for this wader so that customers can make an informed choice.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought this specifically for a guided fly fishing trip in New Zealand - 5 consecutive full days of clambering over boulders, crawling up and down steep gravel banks, bashing through the bush, brush, trees, shrubs...think Juraissic Park Country. The waders held up and kept me dry. I am 5 ft tall only and weigh 48 kg. My inseam length is 29 inches and I chose the S size. I picked Reddington over many other brands only because of its longer inseam length - allowing room to hoist my legs over boulders. The suspenders are a bit long for my short torso, which means the top of the waders dont hang well but any shorter length of the suspenders, will cause a wedgie in the crotch area. So its a compromise with not a flattering cut but hey it works ! And I caught big browns so am super happy with it!
