From Skwala:

Fly Fishing apparel brand brings third wader to its award-winning wader line.

From Skwala: Skwala Fishing announces a new member of its vaunted wader lineup.  The Backeddy Wader hits participating retailers and online today and is sure to bolster the brand’s reputation as making the world’s finest fly fishing apparel.

The new Backeddy Wader borrows some of its heritage from its sibling, the award-winning RS Wader.  The Backeddy Wader utilizes the same 4-layer waterproof/breathable laminate with DWR finish, and ultra-dense 100% polyester microfiber double weave face textile found in the RS Wader. The Backeddy Wader also comes with Skwala’s unique gravel gaiters, renowned articulation that provides freedom of movement, anatomically patterned, fully glued and taped 4mm neoprene booties with an abrasion resistant sole panel, and incredibly comfortable shoulder yoke system.

From that point, the Backeddy Wader deviates to carve its own niche in the company’s wader lineup.   Two years in the making, this wader delivers unique, thoughtful solutions to complicated problems: Magnetic shoulder yoke attachments eliminate line-catching buckles while still providing Skwala waders’ well-known ease when getting in and out. Removable knee pads provide anglers with cushion for close-quarters streambed creeping on wary trout.

A pass-through kangaroo chest pocket provides shelter for chilly hands and features dual-sided zippers to prevent hang ups on oar-handles while rowing. An additional zippered drop top pocket holds your phone or other necessities.  Skwala even added the popular side dump-pockets from their technical sun hoodies for quick, secure access to tippet, floatant, split shot, indicators, or other small items.

“The Backeddy Wader is the result of our team examining the features that anglers need to create a better day on the water,” says Kevin Sloan, Skwala’s CEO + Founder. “While still maintaining the Skwala wader DNA, the team did a great job of developing a wader that we think will quickly become an industry standout.”

The Backeddy Wader is available online at and at select Skwala Retailers across the United States.
