Measurements refer to body size, not garment dimensions, and are in inches, unless otherwise noted. Inseam measurements are from crotch to floor. Fit note: Our waders are less bulky than most brands yet still allow room for layering. The adjustable suspender and belt system can customize the fit +/- three inches in torso width and height.
*Largest girth (chest, waist or hips)
Our highest-performing, most durable and feature-rich waterproof/breathable waders, with a trimmer upper-body fit that still allows easy layering.
The toughest days on the water are often the most instructive: they make us focus on the subtle details, reduce the variables and simplify our approach. We applied that same thinking to the toughest, most puncture-resistant waders we know how to make—and we made them even better. Our Rio Gallegos Waders are built from our tested-and-proven 4-layer H2No® Performance Standard fabric package using single-seam construction to route critical seams away from areas of high wear, and their robust feature set offers the highest level of comfort, performance and durability. A slightly trimmer profile around the hip, waist and chest provides an improved fit that still easily accepts layers for long, cold sessions, while the innovative internal suspension system allows easy conversion to waist height and quick relief without having to remove your jacket. Motion-oriented patterning through the crotch means it’s no problem to swing a leg over gunwales, and articulation in the leg is designed for mom
