    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.

    Great breathable fit.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    skinny jeans of the wader pant world but consider i am a big guy at 6'2 340lbs big calvs size 14 boot
    the inseam is baggy but manageable.
    and the belt is stretchy which I had to replace cause I couldn't get the waist cinched as tight as I needed.
    the side pockets are great and deep I do like having side pockets to hold a small fly box on days I just take my lanyard with me.
    for the price and quality they are worth it in my book.

    Terrific waders

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    They say you shouldn't be wading much past thigh high. At 6'5", thigh high for some is waist high for me. Anyway, after trying these on a guided trip, these were the best waders I'd ever tried, and had to get a pair.
    One season into use and I still love them. The fit is terrific, they have held up well, they hang and dry nicely, and are very unobtrusive. Full access to my waist and everything above.

    As noted elsewhere, I probably would wear something insulating if it were truly cold, but I've worn them in a very cold stream in a mild snowfall with just a single synthetic baselayer and it was fine.

    Patagonia Gunnison gorge

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    These pants are awesome! I bought these to use for small streams and for backpacking this summer. I've used them 4 times so far and have loved them. They are not great for cold water fishing however which makes sense. The material is thinner than my patagonia Rio Gallegos waders which doesn't insulate heat as well as them. I like the hand pockets and it also has a waterproof pocket inside as well.. I am 5'6" and went with the medium short. They fit perfect.

    fits great but...

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    These were the least baggy and best fitting pants that I had tried on, but by the second use, the material on the gravel guards had worn holes around the bottom. Granted, I had put nearly 10 miles on them by their second use. I opted for other pants with more durable neoprene gravel guards instead.

    Great Waders

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These were exactly what I was looking for... I needed something that wasn't bulky, was light enough to handle the warmer weather here, and sturdy enough to keep out the freezing water.

    These fit just like a normal pair of pants, are easy to move around in, and if you care... they look great too.

    I've worn these on multiple trips and I haven't had any issues with them. I do take comfort in knowing if something does happen though that Patagonia will take care of me.

    Also thanks to gearhead Chazz who answered all of my questions, and gave me some great insight.

    Perfect Fit!

    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: XXL Reg
    • Height: 6'6"
    • Weight: 275lbs

    I'm 6'6" 275lbs and the XXL Regular fit perfectly. Very impressed with Backcountrys service as well. I ordered these at 10pm last night and they were delivered to my doorstep (Logan, Utah)at 10 this morning.

    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.

    Excellent waders

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: L/Short
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 200lbs

    The Patagonia Gunnison Gorge Wading Pant is an excellent pair of waders, very comfortable and a pleasure to fish in all day. The fit worked well for me. It makes it hard to go back to chest waders.
