Women’s Swiftcurrent Waders
Designed, created and field-tested by our female team of anglers, the Women’s Swiftcurrent Waders are the new standard for women on the water. Delivering more than just dependably dry feet, they’re more comfortable, fit more bodies better and provide features designed exclusively for female fly fishers.
I was psyched to see Patagonia leading in terms of listening to women and what women wanted in terms of a women’s wader,” says guide, fly shop owner and Patagonia ambassador Hilary Hutcheson. “That needed to progress.”
The Women’s Swiftcurrents move more athletically in and out of the water, with customizable-fit options that accommodate layering but won’t bag out when you go light. Along with a gusseted crotch and sock-like anatomical booties, adjustable sizing options in the top hem, waist and suspenders make it easy to dial in a custom fit for all body shapes.
Waist-mounted EZ-Lock suspenders convert the waders from full-length to waist-highs, and our rear-buckle system means no more awkward, dangling straps during bathroom breaks. Integrated belt loops hold our new Secure Stretch wading belt, which flexes just enough to provide a snug fit without sagging under the weight of a net, bear spray or a wading staff.
Other fishy features include a reach-through handwarmer pocket, roomy, a zippered chest pocket for quick access to tippet spools, nippers and floatant, an interior welded waterproof pocket for a phone and keys and burly scuff guards at the ankles.
