It’s taken years of painstaking engineering, meticulous research and constant, in-the-field testing for Patagonia to deliver their new line of Swiftcurrent Waders. The wait was worth it. The Swiftcurrent Waders simply do everything better. They’re lighter, stronger and move better in and out of the water – from truly articulated legs and a gusseted crotch for freedom of movement, to beefier zippers, a more precise and intuitive suspender system, a new Secure Stretch wading belt and innovative bootie technology. Patagonia even improved their heavy-duty scuff guards at the ankle. The result is a durable, athletic wader that isn’t baggy, doesn’t bunch up and looks just as good as it performs. When it comes to advanced, innovative textiles, Patagonia believes reduced impact on the environment is a critical marker of progress. As a result, every wader in their Swiftcurrent line is transitioning to 100% recycled face fabrics. Fabrics that surpasses their rigorous H2No® Performance Standard for waterproofness and durability. These materials allow Patagonia to craft waders with superior comfort and fit while sacrificing nothing in performance.
