    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.

    Great So Far

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    I bought these for my wife and she loves them. She only has 4 days in them but the quality seems great. The fit is really good going off of the size chart. The convertible feature is going to be great for the summer and also works well for getting into an inside pocket if needed.

    Garbage. Don't waste your money!

      I wanted to love these waders. I was looking forward to a lighter weight pair of waders to wear in the summer (I have the men's too Gallegos waders and love them). Unfortunately these waders have been extremely poor quality and have leaked since day 1. I sent them back to patagonia for repair and received them back only to find that the my still leak. The entire crotch seam is bad and leaks enough to completely soak me (even after warranty repair). Don't waste your money. Unfortunately the womens waders are not of the same quality the men's are.

      Still not really cut right for me.

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

      i tried these on vs the 2018 simms g3 guidestockings for which i have three other sets. In theory i want to own a set of patagonia waders as just about everything else i own is — however these just don't fit me right. i'm 5'8 190 with long legs and a short waist and large bottom — the XL full fit but the legs are a little long and the booties too big. The deal breaker was that they are just so damn noisy compared to my g3s, and since i do a lot of smaller stream stalking that made me nervous. also as others have said the drop waist feature needs some work. i could get them down OK but getting them back on was a chore. i can't imagine doing that in a downpour! Please patagonia... make waders that fit us bigger and curvier ladies too!

      Absolutely LOVE These

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I love the fabric (very durable, excellent for waterproof--booties have never wet through, awesome features--adjustable, watertight internal access chest pocket and exterior chest one, great articulation if you size them right--be sure to move around and bend-zee-knees when trying on, nice color and looks flatter a really great design cut. The attached bootie tends to be a little big (I'm 5'10" and purchase Lg, have 9.5 shoe size and could use a smaller bootie/sock but they work fine anyway in my amazing Patagonia Ultralight Sticky wading boots purchased at the same time). I've been winter fly fishing here in Utah in some cold rivers and am still dry and warm after a morning/afternoon session. I tried on some other great brands for comparision but still stayed with my first love---this Patagonia Spring River Wader.

      Fantastic Waders for the Price!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      My wife loves these waders. They offer tons of dexterity, warmth, and comfort within a reasonable price point. When you combine this w/ Patagonia's fantastic warranty, you have yourself a great pair of waders at a medium price. Fit true to size w/ the M/Reg booties being great for a size 8 shoe. Bonus is the slide-down feature of the upper-chest area for warmer days and/or easy access and you've got yourself a winner!

      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!

      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Small/petite
      • Height: 5'3"
      • Weight: 110lbs

      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.


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

      Best Nephew Ever

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
      • Fit: True to size

      Bought these for my aunt for her birthday. Damn lets talk about some brownie points. I've received nothing but positive feedback and gratitude. Pumped on the purchase.

      Worth Every Penny

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size

      I can't tell you how much I love these waders. They fit like a dream without making you look like you have the dreaded "droopy wader butt." My favorite feature is probably the drop down/convertible straps. The bib on the waders can be lowered and you can wear them as pants. I'm definitely not a stick, but I can still fit 2 sometimes 3 layers of varying degrees of thickness under these waders with room to spare. These are cool enough to wear in the summer with a tank top and warm enough to wear in even the brutalest of winter weather.

      The quality is phenomenal. I have worn these through extremely thick brush, fallen more times than I can count, slid down rock hills and worn them in the saltwater and have had only 1 small pinhole leak so far.

      Worth Every Penny

      Patagonia Spring River Waders

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

      I've had my eyes on these waders for years and finally pulled the trigger on them and I'm thrilled. The fit is amazing. I'm 5'5 and 150 lbs and the Medium Full fits me perfectly with a little bit of extra room in the bust. Everytime I go fishing I'm always wearing my guy friends' hand me and downs and these are like a breath of fresh air. They are fit for a women, have plenty of room for layering, and are the highest quality waders I've ever worn.


      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Ok… these waders… I LITTERALY CRIED when I got them. My husband got them for me as a gift, I opened the box… and I CRIED!!! I went out and used them that day. These waders are magic. Pure magic. Size chart is pretty acurate. I purchased a size S/Reg and im 5'4, 130lbs. So, Lets start off with all the good stuff:

      -Fleece lined hand warmers in the chest pocket
      -A front pocket for fly box... or personal favorite a sandwich!
      -Adjustable suspender straps, which pull down around your waist complete with a back buckle that can be unclipped for easy bathroom access.
      -Warm neoprene feet
      -Great color
      -Flattering waist line
      -A waist belt to keep everything in. You can even clip a knife to it.
      -little hook on the bottom of the leg to connect to your wading boots

      -I really don’t have any at the moment, but will add if I come up with any.

      Great Product

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

      I love these waders. The fit is great and it's not like wearing a bag. I am 5'6, 140 pounds and the size small fits perfect. I order a lot from Backcountry because I can expect a great price, good packaging, easy and affordable returns process and good customer service.

      Awesome Waders!!!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      The Spring River Waders are a great investment for the hardcore fishing gal. After wearing and tearing a pair of boys waders and boots I realized I needed something that could withstand the PNW bush trails. The waders provided a comfortable flexible fit for climbing over fallen trees and are flattering in style. The front pockets allow easy access to accessories when your waist deep in the river and the dry pocket keeps your valuables nice and dry. A major plus is the adjustable straps. After a long hike down the banks I can pull down the bib with ease for cooling off and the buckle rear allows no fuss relief. Say so long to fussy waders and Fish On!

      Awesome Waders!!!

      Top Notch!

      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: L/Reg
      • Height: 5'8"
      • Weight: 150lbs

      Love these, wish I had purchased them sooner. I'm bigger in the hips, purchased the L/Reg and there's plenty of room for layering. The fabric is light and the waders are so well articulated, I can wade confidently, hike around the river banks, and the ability to un-clip the straps for "relief" is super convenient. The draw cord around the chest keeps the heat in on cold days, and chest pockets are convenient for keeping the phone and keys safe. I where a 9 1/2 street shoe, the 8-10 bootie is articulated but roomy enough for a thin sock. I purchased the 8 Men's ultralight boot, and it works perfectly w/ this wader.
