Designed by women for women, the Patagonia Women’s Spring River Waders herald the growth of females in fly-fishing. These sleek slate-gray waders don’t droop like your grandpa’s pants yet leave lots of room for layers when you’re hitting the rivers any time other than the height of summer. Whether you’re smaller than a lot of tweens, on par with a pro-cager center, or somewhere in between, Patagonia offers petite, full, and regular options so you can finely tune the fit for your physique. Four layers of high-density polyester microfiber creates a supple and tough shell. Nanosphere DWR works at the microscopic level for dramatically increased water resistance that can be restored upon exposure to heat. H2No Performance Standard laminate loves liquid and draws sweat away for dry fly fishing, at least on the inside. The waist-mounted EZ-Lock suspenders have TPU slide-and-lock latches to secure the shoulder straps when you wade into the deep muddy, and they secret away when you only want pants. An adjustable, elastic belt slips over your hips when you need to relieve yourself, yet stays in place so your bibs don’t bellow with excess water. These convertible bib/pant waders are put together using single seam construction to minimize wear and maximize the lifespan of your angling outerwear. The 3mm neoprene booties are lined with merino wool for warmth without wetness on your ten little piggies. Two waterproof pockets, one inside and one out, let you take both a smartphone and small fly box with you. A fleece-lined kangaroo pouch pocket is soft and warm on your hands and provides easy access to tippet spools and nippers.
