3/4 OD and 1/2 ID. I tapered the edge just a little to make it easier to insert into the valve. Nice snug fit!

Luckily my tube has two bladders. No need for pump.

LOL

If your two bladders are layered on top of each other then you just notice that the water line is weirdly close to the top of your waders.

If your two bladders are in separate arms of your FT, then you start listing to one side...kicking is not very effective if one fin is in the water and one fin is out...what was the name of that cruise ship that they just righted, out in Italy?

BTDT.

Oh, and BTDT is why I always wear boots under my fins but usually when I have to hike back, it's related to wind and current...it sucks having to walk back then discovering that your waders now have holes because of thorns in the grass, barbed wire laying on the ground, or sharp rocks just doing what sharp rocks do...

I take the tube from my pump with me. I have had to use it several times, I just insert it and blow into my tube until it is full and then remove the tube. Works for me!
