Totally awesome TRAVEL and BACKPACKING waders!

Reviewed by Freestone from Washington state on Monday, December 14, 2015
In 45 years of fly fishing, I have owned lots of waders. I currently have multiple pairs of Simms and Patagonia in my closet, and while I love my G3's, they are too heavy and bulky if I have to pack them. These waders are perfect for what they are designed for: Travel and Backpacking These are not meant to be burly, 5 layer, brush-bashing waders. People should really pay attention to the name and description of these waders before giving them a bad review. These waders are super lightweight as they are designed for travel and backpacking, hence the "Ultra Packable" for"Destination anglers" part of the name. Consequently, everything is lighter and thinner than you'd find in everyday waders: the fabric, the use of the latest high-tech bomber welded seams (vs sewn), the shoulder straps, the belt, the booties - and this makes them awesome - for Travel and Backpacking. I was looking for a pair of super lightweight waders that packed down as small as possible and these fit the bill nicely.

If you are looking for a very well-made pair of lightweight, easy to compress waders for travel or backpacking you'll love them. They are so light and comfortable, you'll almost forget you have them on. If you are buying your one and only pair of waders and you will expose them to heavy and/or hard use, do not buy these as they are not meant to be used that way.
