PRO Waders

“They have been INDESTRUCTIBLE. I have hiked miles on hot days, and never felt like I was overheating. Have waded many hours, and NOTHING HAS LEAKED THROUGH any of the seams. They are very comfortable waders, and I truly think THEY WILL CHANGE THE WADER GAME.”

Two times more abrasion-resistant than the leading competitor.

Three years in development, these waders kept Alaskan bush guides dry in over nine thousand hours of crashing through brush, sliding down banks, and climbing in and out of boats and float planes. We’ve never spent as much time and effort designing and field-testing a pair of waders, and they are unquestionably the most durable waders we have ever made.

Adventure Begins with the Approach

Versatility is an understatement for this incredibly lightweight, quick-drying, yet rugged multi-purpose shoe. Seamless PU cage technology provides superior drainage and durability; an integrated and breathable Ariaprene® sock supports the ankle while keeping out debris.

Underfoot, the Michelin® Outdoor Extreme rubber outsole provides 43% better wet rubber traction and 25% higher abrasion resistance compared to the competition.

It is the most technically advanced fleece you can buy.
