    Built for all-day excursions.

    Designed for women by women, the Patagonia Women's Spring River Waders herald the growth of females in fly-fishing. These sleek slate-gray waders don't droop like your grandpa's pants yet leave lots of room for layers when you're hitting the rivers any time other than the height of summer. Whether you're smaller than a lot of tweens, on par with a pro-cager center, or somewhere in between, Patagonia offers petite, full, and regular options so you can finely tune the fit for your physique.

    Four layers of high-density polyester microfiber create a supple and tough shell. Nanosphere DWR works at the microscopic level for dramatically-increased water resistance that can be restored upon exposure to heat. The H2No Performance Standard laminate on the outside shuns water, while the hydrophilic interior laminate loves liquid and draws sweat away for dry fly fishing. The waist-mounted EZ-Lock suspenders have TPU slide-and-lock latches to secure the shoulder straps when you wade into the deep muddy, and they stash away when you only want pants. An adjustable elastic belt slips over your hips when you need to relieve yourself, yet stays in place so your bibs don't bellow with excess water.

    These convertible bib/pant waders are put together using single seam construction to minimize wear and maximize the lifespan of your angling outerwear. The 4mm neoprene booties are lined with merino wool for warmth without wetness on your ten little piggies. Two waterproof pockets, one inside and one out, let you take both a smartphone and small fly box with you. A fleece-lined kangaroo pouch pocket is soft and warm on your hands and provides easy access to tippet spools and nippers.

    Socks are on the large size

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'5"

    Mediums work great for me (I have larger than average quads, glutes). I will say the socks are a little larger than I'd like for my size 8 wading boots. Love being able to slide the top down to waist level to help regulate temp when it's hot. No complaints here.

    Patagonia Spring River Waders

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Small Petite
    • Height: 5'2"
    • Weight: 120lbs

    Bought these for my girlfriend and she loves them. She is 5' 2" and petite, so we ordered the small petite. The legs were a little long for her but they were still comfortable.

    Sadly, not for me

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Xl petite
    • Height: 5'5"
    • Weight: 155lbs

    Well, a few things:
    I'm 5'5 and curvy with a size 8 foot and a size 9 wade boot, so I ordered an XL Petite. Paid the 1 day shipping and received as promised.
    Waders very long, and neoprene sock had an extra 2" of material and barely fit in my boot with no room to move. The clincher for me was the clip for the straps, it's in the BACK of the waders, super awkward and not practical. The straps going to the front, have no clips and are not the removable, kind that clip in. There is a plastic piece where you can tighten the straps, and it hit at my armpit which would be annoying for my casting. Additionally, to tighten the top of the waders, there are an elastic pull and toggle, again, hitting this time under my arm and uncomfortable. I had high hopes, but will go with my old standby Simms wader.
    Btw, received a lovely voice mail and email from the Flyfishing expert at BackCountry. I love the customer service!

    So far so good!

    I got these for a friend for Christmas, she hasn't got out in them yet but she said they fit great and are light on the shoulders compared to other waders she's had.

    She is a bit on the shorter side of the scale and the small/petiteworked perfect.

    Petite is too long for 5 ft short women

    • Fit: Runs large

    I ordered a Petite in Small. I am 5 ft short, actual inseam of 28.5 inches. The petite is stated as fitting a person with an inseam of 30 inches. Having owned another competitor brand in Small with a stated inseam of 29-30 inches, I thought I could get away with the small difference of 1.5 inches. This is not the case - Patagonia Petite is sized for up to 5 ft 4 inches and caters for the taller end of Petite. I measured the actual inseam of the wader from bottom of the heel to the crotch - that is 35 inches, vs 33 inches in the competitor wader. From the crotch to the top of the front bib is 22.5 inches - vs 18 inches in the competitor's wader. Hope this is of some use to height challenged persons like me. I also hope that Patagonia can list the minimum height for this wader so that customers can make an informed choice.

    • Size Bought: Medium - Regular Fit
    • Height: 5'2"

    Recently picked up these waders for my lady as she needed to replace her Redington Willow River waders that sprung a leak after a year's use. At 5'2" she picked the medium regular fit waders and is happy with the fit. She has enough room to move around and climb over rocks without getting a wedgie and can wear layers underneath on colder days. The booties aren't too massive and fit well in her boots. She commented several times on how nice the materials are compared to her old waders. Patagonia says the outside pocket is waterproof, but I probably wouldn't recommend putting anything that you want kept completely dry in case of a slip in the river. The sealed pocket inside would be a better option for storing a phone or keys.

    Finally a flattering wader

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XS
    • Height: 5'7"
    • Weight: 115lbs

    I bought these for my wife who is new to fly fishing and who loves fishing and also wants to feel feminine as opposed to wearing MC Hammer pants made from a trash bag. She is very slender and the XS waders were perfect. The silhouette was flattering (as waders can possible be) while providing all the range of motion she craved. The fleece lined handwarmers are a great touch and she was instantly commenting how useful they to take the edge off after taking your hands out of the cold river. The booties fit wonderfully and the merino lining is a nice touch for warmth and comfort. Overall, she loves wearing these waders and feels great in them. More couples fly fishing trips as a result of this purchase.
