patagonia waders review

If you’re serious about fly fishing, you need a set of Patagonia waders. These are some of the best on the market, and they last a long time. Some anglers have been using them for over a decade without experiencing any leakage problems.

Patagonia is a company known for its commitment to the environment and uses recycled materials in their products. The Swiftcurrent Ultralight waders are no exception to this rule. They are made with a 4-layer waterproof/breathable membrane and a face fabric that is 100% recycled post-consumer and industrial polyester. It is also puncture- and abrasion-resistant. This combination makes them durable and breathable, while still being affordable. They have a zipper handwarmer pocket and are equipped with a gusseted crotch for increased comfort and mobility. They can be easily converted from waist to chest high wader thanks to the EZ-lock suspenders.

Another feature that makes these waders unique is the rear-buckle system. This feature allows female anglers to relieve themselves more easily while in the wild. It is much easier to do this than having to deal with the awkward, dangling straps that are common on other waders.

These are the perfect pair of waders for beginners to fly fishing or those who need a simple, functional pair of waders that can be used in different situations. They come with a large, YKK zipper that inspires confidence and is easy to use. They also have plenty of pockets for storing items such as floatant, nippers and tippet spools.
