    A river doesn't run through it.

    Any angler knows that just "holding it" doesn't really work when you're standing out in the middle of a river with the sound of rushing water on all sides of you. And while waders have come a long way since those pure-neoprene beauties you used to sport, few advancements have been made in the areas of personal relief before the Patagonia Men's Rio Gallegos Zip-Front Waders. Built with all the high-end materials you'd expect from Patagonia, the Rio Gallegos is made with a four-layer H2No membrane and Nanosphere DWR finish, and it features a waterproof center front zipper so you can wade deep and enjoy instant relief wherever you are.

    Fit is a big deal when you're spending upwards of ten hours a day in your waders, so Patagonia designed these waders to be as comfortable as possible, with anatomically curved knees and removable knee pads on the inside for those times you need to take a knee to remove your hook. Patagonia also added 3mm neoprene booties with a merino wool grid lining in order to provide the same warmth as traditional 5mm booties, but with more breathability and less bulk in your boots. The lower legs are reinforced with a double-weave taffeta face fabric to resist wear, while the single seam construction eliminates seams in high wear areas to prevent leaks and blowouts along the inseams.

    Booties Fit

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    So I have a pair of the older models of these and recently tried the new redesign. First thing I noticed was the booties are more anatomically fit for your foot, the old ones where big booties that bunched and folded. These fit a lot better in the boot now. The chest waist area is more fitting as opposed to the large roomy fit they used to have. I do like the zip front, nice in snowy conditions when you do not need to pull off pack and jackets to re leave yourself. The articulation in legs fit better so far as well, not restricted in my movement. Only several days so far, but I like these better with the redesign over my older model.
