    Every time I sit my legs fill with air and stays there.
    Any suggestions on how to stop this from happening?


    Thanks for any help

    My breathable waders do the same. Lol

    Once you get in the water, they should be shrink-wrapped to your legs, from the water pressure.

    Before you sit down in the tube...if you can walk out waist-deep and put on a wading belt it while the fabric is tight to your legs from water pressure...your waders should stay deflated.
    No 'wading belt?'

    I tube with waders (pants type) - once I pull them up, I kneel on both knees and force the air out - then when I stand they are snug with no air pockets

    Are you trying to sit down on waders on dry land? The air in the waders eventually leaks out when I sit on the float tube in water, certainly does not stay long enough to be a problem. If you are putting on the waders at home and then driving to the launch point, then instead wait until you get to the launch to put the waders on. Maybe you have the belt too tight or the waders are too small around the waist. Or maybe you eat too many beans before wearing the waders. I suppose you could always run some plastic tubing inside the waders so air can escape but it isn't that much of a problem for other people.
