Swiftcurrent Expedition Zip-Front Waders

Eco-friendly is an expectation for Patagonia, so the recycled content and natural rubber of the Swiftcurrent shouldn't come as a surprise. This wader features 4-layer waterproof protection that seals out moisture even with the pressure of the current trying to force the water in. The submersible zipper makes getting in and out a breeze without exposing you to water once you're wading.

Very Nice Waders - couple of things...

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Size Bought:
6' 3"

Let me preface by saying that these did not work for me - simply too large. I am 6'3" tall with a short torso (size regular or medium backpack), 290 lbs, 39" waist and 54" chest. I wear a size 14 trail runner and a size 13 hiking boot and dress shoe. I purchased the size 3LL. There is no 2XLong only 2XR. This may sound like a negative review, but I am just trying to be concise. In fact, as soon as the XLL is back in stock I am going to try them. The good: These look amazing - I don't believe there is a better looking wader on the market. The front zip is money and the pockets are amply sized (both hand and storage). I imagine these would keep you dry (from the outside) indefinitely. The feet were perfectly sized for a 14. The Bad: Huge. Certainly, there are benefits to extra girth and length, but these were massive in size. They were +/- 6" too baggy around my chest and stomach and even with the sides cinched all the way, they were still +/- 2" too big for how I like waders to fit. The legs were also very loose and they were a little too long. They were hot... damn hot... but it is very hot and humid in Memphis. The fleece lining in the booties made my feet sweat immediately. I would have preferred a more common quick release buckle. I really struggled with the clips for the harness while wearing. I do think I would get used to this, but it wasn't intuitive at first. As far as a comparable wader, I can really only compare these to the Simms G3 Guide in a 2XL. - these felt much heavier than the Simms. - the material felt less supple (it seemed thicker and stiffer). - I believe the Simms breathe better. - Again, 3X vs. 2X, but there is more than a 1X difference in the 2. - the booties are cut larger. Simms are a little tight on me. I reached out to Patagonia for the actual measurements - this would have been super helpful and saved me from trying the 3LL. Actual Measurements of 3LL: 61 Waist / 62 Chest / 37 inseam from gusset to floor.
