Made with Patagonia's fabled 4-layer H2No® Performance Standard fabric, the Skeena River Waders are of a single-seam construction to route critical seams away from areas of high wear. A streamlined design offers comfort, performance and durability. Motion-oriented patterning through the crotch means it’s no problem to swing a leg over gunwales or fallen trees, and articulation in the leg is designed for moments when fishing brings you to your knees. If you fish in and out of boats, you’ll also appreciate the flat-panel gravel guards: they drain water quickly while resisting abrasion and wear while hiking or wading. A slightly trimmer profile around the hips, waist and chest provides an improved fit that still easily accepts layers for long, cold sessions. 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.
