Patagonia's highest performing, most durable and feature-rich fly fishing waders with the additional convenience of a waterproof front zipper. Built with even tougher, more breathable 4-layer waterproof/breathable H2No Performance Standard fabrics (lightest weight at the chest and heaviest weight throughout the body) and single seam construction for increased durability and freedom of movement.

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 Patagonia knows how to engineer—and now they’ve been reengineered from the booties up. Patagonia's Rio Gallegos Waders are still built from their 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 they’ve streamlined the entire feature set for a new level of comfort, performance and durability.

Patagonia 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. They re-patterned the crotch so it’s no problem to swing a leg over gunwales, and 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 the old design, in addition to better resisting abrasion and wear while hiking or wading. The 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. Patagonia's 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.
