Lightweight versatility for warmer days.
Slip into the superlight Patagonia Men's Gunnison Gorge Wading Pant when it's nice and warm at the river you're fishing in. A four-layer H2No Performance Standard shell gives these pants incredible waterproof protection, and the C6 DWR coating makes the water bead right off you when you get out. Made primarily out of smooth polyester microfiber, these pants look and feel more like regular pants when you relax on the riverside for lunch. Patagonia included a TPU-welded internal pocket that should protect your phone in case you slip in the river.
Patagonia also equipped the Gunnison with specially designed right and left neoprene booties with abrasion-resistant soles, a Y-Joint crotch for a full range of motion, single seam construction for extra durability, and an elasticized back for comfort. The stretch wading belt features a strong DuraFlex buckle that keeps the pants on, and external reinforcements on the gravel guards ensure excellent longevity. Patagonia also included a repair kit so you don't need a whole new set when you get a little tear.

So far, these are awesome waders. I wear waders almost every day (fish biologist) and comfortable, durable waders are a must. I have owned just about every paint wader out there and so far, these definitely get an A+ for comfort as they are extremely light, breath good and have very comfortable booty. They appear to be well made but only have had for a month and thus cannot not attest to how durable they are but so far, so good. Highly recommended!
Compared to Simms guide wader, these are for more flexible, lighter, cause much less sweating and far more comfortable overall. This wader does NOT have the zipper in front like the Simms Guide pant wader but not a huge deal for me, I highly prefer the all day comfort the Patagonia's offer more than the ease of accessibility trade off that the Simms offers.
