We set out to design the finest waders on the planet and succeeded. These versatile, durable waders feature our exclusive new suspension system, new wool-lined neoprene booties and exterior seam reinforcements at critical wear points.

Color: Alpha Green
(Size Guide)

When we set out to build the finest waders on the planet, the challenge was clear: They had to be tougher, more comfortable and easier to use than anything else out there. Period. We believe our new Rio Gallegos Waders have met – and exceeded – the challenge. Built with strategically placed weights of our proprietary waterproof/breathable H2No® Hydrostorm polyester microfiber fabric package, these waders maximize durability while achieving a new standard of comfort and breathability. Our revolutionary Merino wool grid booties – re-engineered for even better fit – wick moisture and keep feet warm in cold water and cool on long walk-ins. A new sliding, infinitely adjustable suspension system converts easily to waist height (or any height you prefer) and allows quick "relief" without having to remove your jacket or wrestle with balky zipper access. High-wear seams feature exterior reinforcement tape for unsurpassed abrasion-resistance and longevity. More details: easy-access, external glued-in water-repellent zip storage pocket; completely submersible, waterproof welded internal pocket; anatomically designed left and right legs and booties; built-in gravel guards with abrasion-resistant scuff zones and high-filtration mesh drainage strips; removable internal knee pads; and a stretch wading belt. In other words, the ultimate wader. Field repair kit included. Recyclable through the Common Threads Recycling Program.

  • Material

    3-layer H2No® fabrics are waterproof and breathable by virtue of an advanced combination of elements: a water-repellent shell fabric, a waterproof barrier and an interior scrim fabric. This fabric package is completely waterproof, windproof, breathable and very durable.

    Technology

    Barrier is Patagonia's standard for 100% waterproof and breathable protection in our shell garments. H2No is created by adding a waterproof and breathable laminate or coating to a high performance protective fabric. This fabric package blocks wind and water on the outside while allowing water vapor generated by your body to escape – keeping you warm, dry and comfortable.
