The Rio Gallegos Zip Front Wader keeps Patagonia in the forefront of awards for their waders. The Zip Front feature with a T-zip front zipper will allow easy on access along with all the standard features of the Rio Gallegos wader.
Patagonia waders are designed to meet the specific needs of fly anglers
Patagonia are among the most durable fly fishing waders on the planet. Patagonia prides themselves on offering fly fishing waders that are designed to be the most comfortable fly fishing wader as well as the most durable fly fishing wader.
When Patagonia 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. Patagonia believes their Rio Wader has met – and exceeded – the challenge. Built with strategically placed weights of proprietary waterproof/breathable H2No® Hydrostorm polyester microfiber fabric package, these waders maximize durability while achieving a new standard of comfort and breathability. The 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.
