    Thanks Voni!

    I was just having a discussion with a friend about women's gear for full-figured gals - she ordered a pair of XXL pants that didn't fit her but fit a friend who was probably a size 10!

    I am passing it along to her too!

    Same here;

    The guy's wear is sized about the same way! I bought a 3X pant that would fit a size 38 waist in mens wear(Tour Master)? Go figure. Good luck. Randy

    boots

    I'm having trouble finding boots that fit my calves and ankle. My calves are large and my right ankle is larger than normal because through the years it's been broken 2 times and sprained countless times. Anyone know of any riding boots out there with for larger calves?

    Santiago Boot

    I got the Santiago boot because of the generous Velcro flap over the calf and the adjustable locking buckles. I find them extremely comfortable in all temperatures as well.

    Try on a pair of BMW Allaround boots.

    They zip up and have a very large velcro flap. You might be able to partially zip up and then adjust with the large flap.

    I have narrow feet and skinny legs, so I actually pull the flap around more to fit me. I wish I could say I am still skinny but I'm not.

    The boots are at least partially adjustable and might work out for you. They have a Gore-Tex membrane to keep your feet reasonably dry in the rain.
