Product Description


In designing the Rio Gallegos Waders, Patagonia set out to create the toughest, most puncture-resistant waterproof/breathable wader on the planet. These super-high-end waders combine the finest level of durability while offering a new level of comfort and convenience. In other words, the ultimate wader.

Patagonia started by strategically placing varying weights of their proprietary H2No® Performance Standard polyester microfiber fabric package with a waterproof/breathable barrier according to specific breathability or toughness needs. The result is maximum durability and flexibility without resorting to excessive, heavy, sweat-trapping layers.

The 3mm Neoprene booties feature a revolutionary merino wool grid-lining to wick away perspiration and create guilt-inducing levels of foot comfort. The 3mm neoprene maintains the warmth of 5mm neoprene but with better breathability. Meanwhile, the 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. The upper exterior features a glued-in, water-repellent zip pocket, providing ample storage for quick access to tippets, nippers etc, and an interior, clear-welded TPU pocket provides waterproof security for cell phone, camera and keys.


    Other features include:
  • Sculpted upper for reduced drag in heavy currents
  • Anatomically curved knees with removable knee pads
  • Built-in fabric gravel guards with abrasion-resistant scuff zones and high-filtration mesh drain strip
  • Quick-release DuraFlex® Stealth-V buckle for an adjustable fit
  • Concealed stainless-steel locking boot hooks
  • Exterior reinforcement tape on interior leg and crotch to provide unsurpassed abrasion resistance where it's needed most
  • High-filtration polyester mesh drainage strip is 100% recycled
  • Field repair kit included.


Rio Gallegos Waders are available in a range of different fits and sizes.
