After years of painstaking engineering, meticulous research, and constant in-the-field testing Patagonia is pleased to announce the most innovative waders they have ever designed — the new Swiftcurrent line of waders.
Lighter, stronger, and intelligently designed for active anglers, the Swiftcurrent Waders are better in every way. New design features including truly articulated legs and a gusseted crotch for freedom of movement, beefier zippers, a more precise and intuitive suspender system, heavy-duty scuff guards at the ankle, a new Secure Stretch wading belt and innovative bootie technology are among the many improvements that make the Swiftcurrent waders significantly more durable and allow anglers to move better in and out of the water.
Considering the needs of both anglers and the environment, every wader in the Swiftcurrent line is transitioning to 100% recycled face fabrics that surpass their rigorous H2No® Performance Standard for waterproofness and durability. Swiftcurrent Waders are constructed from Patagonia’s innovative, 4-layer fabrics. Designed and engineered by Patagonia, they are the most durable, puncture-resistant and comfortable waterproof/breathable materials Patagonia has ever made. These materials allow Patagonia to craft waders with superior comfort and fit while sacrificing nothing in performance and reducing impact on the environment. The result is a durable, athletic wader that isn’t baggy, doesn’t bunch up and looks just as good as it performs.
Recognizing that fit greatly impacts both comfort and performance, Swiftcurrent Waders also feature a gusseted crotch. Based on the proven patterning of their Packable Waders, every style in the new Swiftcurrent lineup utilizes a gusseted crotch that makes rock-hopping, log-jumping and steep bank descents easier, and eliminates the need for complex taping and reinforcement, which creates more durable and better-fitting waders.
Additionally, the Swiftcurrent Waders have innovative booties that feature a more precise, anatomical and sock-like fit. These booties are also designed to resist compaction over time and are poly-grid lined for warmth and comfort.
