Snugg fitting waist belt is a must, especially while running a boat.I hope all of you are wearing a life jacket and hookedup to your kill switches while you drive your boats with the waders on. There was an accident a year or so ago with a sudden loss of steering at high speed during a tournament. They both went into the 45 degree water, if those boys hadn't been wearing their safty equipment they might be dead. Wearing an inflatable life jacket or inflatable wadingvest while in waders is not a bad idea either. I might jerk your chains from time to time, but I wouldn't wish that on anyone.
