check out the new Rio Azul Wader with Patagonia's director of Fishing Bart Bonime
Delivered on its Promises
I really didn't NEED new waders, but I was on the lookout for some light but tough waders for deeper backcountry trips, and from a reputable name in fly fishing gear. The Rio Azuls came up aces in all regards. They're not weighed down with unnecessary features, and have about the most comfortable stocking feet I've ever slipped my feet into. These are the lightest and thinnest waders I've ever worn, and while I did feel a bit more cold standing in knee deep Rocky Mountain water a few weeks ago then I would with my clunky old (but still great) Cabelas waders, I have no doubts that they will hold up to years of steady use. They are already my go-to waders.
I was a bit hesitant to order online sight unseen, but since I couldn't find a dealer near me I took the plunge. The massive range of sizes offered is a testament to Patagonia's commitment to the angling community, and I'm happy to say I was able to find the perfect fit thanks to their sizing details. I'm 5'8" 185lbs with a size 9 wading boot, and the L/Short fits me like a glove. A glove that goes on your legs and feet.
