PATAGONIA SWIFTCURRENT EXPEDITION ZIP-FRONT WADERS
Newly designed, the Patagonia Swiftcurrent Expedition Zip-Front Wader features unique fabric designs and materials to give anglers the best wader ever produced by Patagonia. Featuring a 4-layer, waterproof shell, the Swiftcurrent Expedition Zip-Fronts have been engineered for enhanced fit, mobility and durability. Patagonia's heaviest weight, most full-featured waders, the Swiftcurrent Expeditions feature a new, fully waterproof front zipper and an adjustable quick-release suspender system so conversion from chest to waist height is precise and quick. A new Secure Stretch wading belt offers comfortable closure but is secure enough to accommodate a net, bear spray or other accessories neccessary for wading trips. The drawcord cinch-top closure keeps things snug and dry during those especially frigid days. Other technical details include an interior waterproof pocket, handwarmer pockets with zip flaps, and polygrid Yulex booties.

These are the best fitting and most comfortable waders I’ve owned. And I’ve owned a lot of pairs in my days on the water

Had an old pair of Patagonia waders that had seen their better days. Did a ton of research and landed on the latest/greatest from Patagonia. Wow, amazing fit and a ton of features. So glad I bought these!

Very comfortable and easy to get on with the front zipper. I have wore many times and still don't leak and the convertible system is nice on hot days

These are the best waders I've worn yet. I've tried multiple Orvis waders, Simms G3 pros, and these. These Patagonia waders are by far the best I've worn. They're comfortable and quite resilient.

Having been wearing these waders for a few months they are proving to be a great purchase. Well thought out design and crucially they are tough. This does come at the slight cost of them being warmer than lighter weight breathable waders, but crucially after a couple o months of pushing past gorse/bramble, sliding up and down riverbanks and kneeling on the river bank... no leaks, I’m still completely dry...

These waders are game-changers. I recently took a guided trip and the guide provided me with these waders. They make my SIMM waders just seem ho-hum. Ordering a pair here for sure. Love these things. They are premium priced but for the comfort, toughness, and longevity, it’s well worth the extra $$$.

I was fortunate to try these waders in the Fall before their release whilst on a guided trip in Australia. My guide is a Patagonia ambassador and had a pre-release zippered front pair for me to use that fit perfectly. By the end of the day, I didn't want to take the waders off. Best waders I have ever worn. Full of features....I particularly love the braces system, were the buckle slides down the braces to lower the wader when one is hot. The braces stay on, keeping the waders comfortably on your body. Having compared other high end waders with these before purchasing, I feel the competition has some catching up to do.
