Boats and trucks can take you only so far; you have to make it the rest of the way to the water on your own two feet. When the trail gets long, our Ultralight Wading Boots keep a spring in your step all the way there and back. The streamlined synthetic leather uppers dry fast, flex easily and hold up through years of hard use. Durable monofilament mesh drains the footbed while keeping out sand and silt. An external rand, internal support and reinforced toe box protect your feet from deep-water pressure and rocky river bottoms. The traditional front lace system features quick-drying laces; long-wearing, sewn-on polyester felt soles hold fin straps and can be resoled for extended life. Please remember to inspect, clean and dry felt soles after each use to reduce the possibility of transferring invasive species.

Ultralight Wading Boots - Felt is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unfortunately changed their sizing - they run big I won't be able to review the longevity or comfort of this boot unfortunately, so this review is specifically related to size. I have worn the previous version of these boots with the sticky sole, as well as the the predecessor to the Ultralight in felt, both in a size 11, and was EXTREMELY happy with both those pairs. Unfortunately, I am less then happy with the latest version as they are HUGE (at least 1 sz bigger in length, as well they are now super voluminous)! I'm very disappointed! Will have to send them back!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent light weight boot Got these about 2-3 years ago and used them relatively heavily. Overall a pretty darn comfortable boot, lightweight and the felt kept me very stable. Reason for 4 stars is the fateful day that I was wading and tripped over the felt that had come off partially on the right boot. Called customer service and they said to send the boots in for repair, i received a gift card for the price of new boots two weeks later. Good to know Patagonia lives up to its warranty!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Overall an ok run of the mill boot but..... The felt wears extremely fast. I have used these for a good solid year to year and half and the felt is already wearing to the point where I am losing confidence in the traction. They need to be resoled.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Boots Very light, but protective. I use Goatshead studs and with the felt the soles give reliable grip, even in the slippery Crooked River I fish a lot. This is my second pair.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from nicely made but very stiff and uncomfortable Feel like walking with 2 cement blocks on my feet, you can't even pull the laces tight when you put them on. they are size 10 wading shoes

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these boots Beefy and durable, but light and agile... And comfortable. Everything you want in a wading boot. This is a great update for patagonia's wading boots.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but could be better Like the boot. Comfortable for my feet an true to size for me. Felt seems to wear kind off fast after hiking. Like another reviewer I truly miss the studded felt boot for maximum traction. Here's my one big suggestion - the removeable insoles on my boots are riddled with little holes on the bottom. Each of those holes attracts a piece of gravel - or (and here's my point) if you're on the Madison or other rivers - possibly a new Zealand mud snail that unless you are an absolute zealot about cleaning your boots will be carried to another watershed. The holes in the insoles are absolutely perfectly sized to pick up (and conceal) a mud snail and carry it to another watershed. Ditch the holes in the insole.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Am I the only one who misses the felted studded? I'll be blunt: a felted boot is pretty much like any other felted boot. In my humble opinion, what sets each apart is ankle support and most importantly, traction. I miss the studded felt boot folks. Please bring them back
