When you’re carrying everything you need for a week of hard fishing on your back – or in checked airline baggage – every inch and ounce counts. Our Rio Azul Waders are built for extreme lightweight performance and max packability. The tough H2No® Performance Standard, 4-layer, 5.4-oz polyester fabric with a waterproof/breathable barrier and NanoSphere® DWR (durable water repellent) finish rolls up tight for travel and keeps you dry when you fish. Fully adjustable suspenders and anatomically designed left and right neoprene booties ensure a comfortable fit for long days in the water. A zippered, waterproof interior pocket protects phone or car-alarm remote from the inevitable that-tailout-was-deeper-than-I-thought swimming sessions. Stretch Wading Belt with DuraFlex® Stealth-V buckle protects you from the same. Front utility keeper for convenient tool attachment. Field repair kit included.
  • H2No® Performance Standard polyester plain-weave shell, with a waterproof/breathable barrier and NanoSphere® DWR (durable water repellent) finish; with fully taped seams
  • Adjustable suspenders
  • Interior waterproof zippered pocket
  • Laser-cut Hypalon® utility keeper allows easy access to tools, nippers, etc.
  • Anatomically designed left and right neoprene fitted booties
  • Field repair kit included
  • H2No® Performance Standard shell: 4-layer, 5.4-oz 100% polyester plain weave, with a waterproof/breathable barrier and NanoSphere® DWR (durable water repellent) finish
  • 997 g (35.2 oz)
  • Made in Vietnam.


Patagonia developed the 4-layer fabric construction for our waders to increase breathability and abrasion resistance, move moisture away from the body, and decrease the weight.

Our exterior fabrics are densely woven 100% polyester microfibers for durability and puncture resistance. On one side we apply our H2No® waterproof coating for waterproof/breathable performance. On the other side we apply a Hydrophilic laminate that pulls moisture away from the body so it can be passed out through the exterior shell.

To protect the hydrophilic laminate we use a soft polyester tricot lining that increases abrasion resistance yet maintains a soft, supple drape. Finally, we apply a DWR (durable water repellent) treatment as the first line of defense in keeping these waders waterproof.

Men's Rio Azul Waders - Short is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit...super comfortable! I have had these for a few months now and have used many times. The neoprene bootys are a good fit, the features of the front panel are helpful with gear. I really like the water tight front inside pocket for keys, phone. Would definitely recommend to a friend!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Somewhat disappointed. I love Patagonia. And I still do but these waders came up a bit short. After two days on the water a hole formed in the left booty and is continuing to let in 40 degree water. I will send in for repair but when would I do that if I want to fish everyday? I'd take it to a shop but they keep pushing Simms. No worries Patagonia. I bought another pair but went with a little $. Maybe it will keep my feet dry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rio Azule Waders First off all the sizing is a little off... I normally fit in Large things but had to try 3 different times before I found the perfect fit which was Medium (I just fish the saltwater around California so don't need as much room for heavy clothing, keep that in mind). With that said The waders are fantastic and I'm loving every minute that I'm in them. Nice price and a nice product that works well! I would recommend them to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Traveling Light! I am a Patagonia employee and love our lightweight products for alpine climbing. When it comes to fishing gear however, I always have a bit of a knee-jerk reaction when I hear we making even lighter-weight waders. Shouldn't they be made out of the heaviest duty stuff imaginable? Well, that’s what I thought until I took these out. I was able to fit the waders, boots, some clothing and my SLR camera into a single carry-on bag & the $ saved from not checking luggage meant extra funding for libations when I met up with my Dad at the destination. More importantly, the waders were insanely comfortable and passed the test in some rugged terrain. They still look great (i.e. no premature wear-points) and I’m getting psyched for some light-n-fast trout missions in the Sierras!
