Patagonia New Rio Gallegos Waders - Regular
Product ID : Patagonia New Rio Gallegos Waders - Regular
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. Patagonia applied that same thinking to the toughest, most puncture-resistant waders we know how to make—and we made them even better. The Rio Gallegos Waders are still built from Patagonia's tested-and-proven 4-layer H2No® Performance Standard fabric package using Single Seam Construction to route critical seams away from areas of high wear, but now they have streamlined the entire feature set for a new level of comfort, performance and durability. Two inches of fabric have been removed from the hip, waist and chest for an improved fit that still easily accepts layers for long, cold sessions. The crotch has been re-patterned so it’s no problem to swing a leg over gunwales, and there is more articulation to the leg for moments when fishing brings you to your knees—like keeping a fish wet during the photograph and release. If you fish in and out of boats, you’ll appreciate the new flat-panel gravel guards: They drain water more quickly than before, in addition to better resisting abrasion and wear while hiking or wading. The improved booties have a more anatomical, sock-like fit and are made from a denser 4mm neoprene that resists compaction better over the long haul; with a poly-grid lining for added comfort. The innovative internal suspension system allows easy conversion to waist height and quick relief without having to remove your jacket. Outside, there’s a reach-through handwarmer pocket and large chest pocket with water-resistant horizontal zip for easy access to tippet spools, nippers and floatant. Interior gear storage includes a waterproof, flip-out welded TPU pocket, two new drop-in stretch pockets and two internal daisy chains for tools. Other fishing-friendly features: center-back hanger loop for easy drying; stretch wading belt with low-profile buckle; removable knee pads; and a raised Fitz Roy Trout logo. Field repair kit included.
