I usually like a zip front wader for getting past my hips easier but I decided to try these out. They had lots of size options and I found one that was easy to get all the way up. The back buckle for going to the bathroom is kind of weird at first but actually awesome. And the front clips to pull the bib part down to be basically hip waders is nice...

Large full to XL full difference is huge! and other design flaws.
I got these waders because I am going fishing in BC this fall and needed some extra room in the legs for thicker pants. I have the Simms women's large tall and the legs are just a little tight. So, I got the Large full and the XL full to try. The Large full has narrower legs than the Simms Large tall (making it useless for my winter wading goa... Read Morel) and the chest fits the same as my Simms but maybe also with a little less room. The XL full has more room in the legs but the chest is absurdly huge as though Patagonia ditched their philosophy of making women's waders with "less bulk" and just made a catch-all size. They look ridiculous and there should absolutely be a size in between. Also, the buckle system in the back is terrible and must be redesigned before I would consider buying Patagonia waders again. I could barely get it clipped even in the comfort of my home without freezing fingers and a million layers. Thirdly, the seams on the stocking feet run right under my heel which I am sure would become irritating after walking all day. So, sadly, I will be returning them both for multiple reasons.
