Patagonia Men's Rio Gallegos Zip Front Waders - Regular

Patagonia



MRO Team Member Review:

I got the Rio Gallegos Zip Front Waders this winter. To date I've fished in them probably over 35 times and they have performed great.  These waders were redesigned in 2016 and the improvements to the wader are outstanding.  They fit well and the poly-grid lining in the footies is awesome.  Turn these waders inside out after using them & the footies dry out quickly, much better than any neoprene waders I've ever used.   I balked at paying the extra money for the zip front model, but they are worth every penny. Coupled with the suspender system they vent great and drop into waist pant mode easily.  This is a great feature when nature calls and it's 15 degrees out.  I no longer have to take off my coat and other top layers to go to the bathroom.  Patagonia knocked it out of the ball park with these waders. - John Schilling - 05/30/2017

Our highest-performing, most durable, feature-rich waterproof/breathable waders with a TIZIP® waterproof front zipper have been updated with a more trim upper-body fit that still layers easily; new interior daisy chains for tools and drop-in pockets for organization; and more streamlined, anatomically fit booties with a poly-grid lining and gravel guards with a flat-panel construction that reduces wear.

The Rio Gallegos Zip-Front Waders bring the convenience of a waterproof front TIZIP® zipper to the toughest, most puncture-resistant, waterproof/breathable wader that we know how to engineer—and now they’ve been reengineered from the booties up. Our Rio Gallegos Waders are still built from our tested-and-proven 4-layer H2No® Performance Standard fabric package using Single Seam Construction to route critical seams away from areas of high wear, but now we’ve streamlined the entire feature set for a new level of comfort, performance and durability. We started by removing two inches of fabric from the hip, waist and chest for an improved fit that still easily accepts layers for long, cold sessions. We re-patterned the crotch so it’s no problem to swing a leg over gunwales, and we brought more articulation to the leg for those moments when fishing brings you to your knees—like keeping a fish wet during the photograph and release. If you fish in and out of boats, you’ll appreciate the new flat-panel gravel guards: they drain water more quickly than our old design, in addition to better resisting abrasion and wear while hiking or wading. Our improved booties have a more anatomical, sock-like fit and are made from a denser 4mm neoprene that resists compaction better over the long haul and have a poly-grid lining for added comfort. Our innovative internal suspension system allows easy conversion to waist height when you aren’t wading deep. Outside, there are two handwarmer pockets and two stash pockets with water-resistant zippers. Interior gear storage includes a waterproof, flip-out welded TPU pocket, two new drop-in stretch pockets and two internal daisy chains for tools. Other fishing-friendly features: center-back hanger loop for easy drying; stretch wading belt with low-profile buckle; removable knee pads; and a raised Fitz Roy Trout logo tops it off. Field repair kit included.
