Whether you’re scrambling up high-gradient freestones while trout fishing or doing the deep-water steelhead dance, our midweight Skeena River Waders strike an ideal balance between ease of movement and toughness.
They’re 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, and their streamlined feature set offers comfort, performance, and durability for the widest range of fishing scenarios.
A slightly trimmer profile around the hip, waist, and chest provides an improved fit that still easily accepts layers for long, cold sessions. Motion-oriented patterning through the crotch means it’s no problem to swing a leg over gunwales, and articulation in the leg is designed for 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 also appreciate the flat-panel gravel guards: they drain water quickly while 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.
Other fishing-friendly features: our innovative internal suspension system allows easy conversion to waist height and‚ this is critical‚ quick relief without having to remove your jacket or fight sticky zippers; internal, welded-TPU waterproof pocket keeps your camera or phone dry and new internal daisy chains on either side provide additional organization options for tools or zingers.
Reach-through chest handwarmer pocket protects your off-hand from the elements; exterior horizontal-zip chest pocket allows quick access to tippet spools, nippers and floatant; and a raised Fitz Roy Trout logo tops it off.
Field repair kit included.
