Boats and trucks can only take you so far; you have to make it the rest of the way to the fish 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 sand and silt out. The external rand, internal support and reinforced toe box protect feet from deep-water pressure and rocky river bottoms; the traditional front lace system features quick-drying laces. Long-wearing Rock Grip sticky rubber soles hold fin straps, accept studs (sold separately) and can be resoled for extended life.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ErikP from Comfortable, however Fished in these about 8 times in salt water. They are comfortable and have good traction. They don't drain well though. When I take them off I can pour a pint of water out of them each time. I own a pair of readington boots as well and the water pours out when you walk, so they drain well. I also noticed today one of the lace grommets tore out. I will send them back. I am sure Patagonia will take care of it, that's why I keep coming back for more.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Troutbandits from Terrible boot Let's just say these only lasted me week. I fish the Colorado Rocky Mountain And got these hoping for a nice light weight boot. Well they fell apart with one trip to the Gunnison. They don't breath and drain very well. My feet didn't like being in them for 10 hours. The soles after one 3 day trip looked like I took a cheese grater to them. They just completely fell apart. The rivets for the shoe lace eye fell off. Would not buy Patagonia boots again

Rated 1 out of 5 by Shirl from Boot fills with Sand These boots may be light but they fill with sand or grit everytime I wear them..the inner soles need to be pulled out after each outing and small stones caught in the holes underneath of these soles need to be picked out..very time consuming..but if it isnt done the stones are damaging the boot and I am worried they will wear out the feet on my waders. I think the sand/grit is getting in because the tongue is not fully sewn in leaving a gap at its base.They are teamed with Patagonia waders and used in rivers and lakes. I am very unhappy with them...they make me grumpy everytime I take them off and see a boot full of stones!

Rated 4 out of 5 by CDNZ from Super Durable Great Support While these are not as light as the previous version, they do offer fantastic ankle support and protection. The sticky bottom is great for non felt destinations and the boot has outlasted the previous model already.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Faber from Great boot! Have owned Patagonia wading boots in the past. This is another great and comfortable boot. Seems more durable than some of there older designs. Just used in New Zealand with great success. Very pleased!

Rated 2 out of 5 by DC Ounty from Studs on sticky rubber ineffective Bought these for their light weight rather than the heavier aluminum gridded versions. First trip out on California's Klamath last week had me slipping and sliding badly. While the boots were comfortable enough the sticky rubber with added studs was ineffective in cutting through algae and sticking to rocks. Where the bottom rocks were clean of algae the studs wer only marginally better. Whether this is because 10 studs per boot aren't enough, because the studs aren't hard enough or because they sit too low on the sole I've yet to determine. I'll be replacing the Patagonia studs with some kind of aluminum to see if things improve before I look for new boots.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Hopper13 from Sticky, but not durable. I'm just back from a nine day guide trip in Alaska. The river and gravel bars are of mixed size cobble. The soft soles are already beginning to flake and shed small pieces. I guess that's the trade off for sticky rubber. I would also echo the lack of draining comment in another review. In addition, I found that the boots lacked good ankle support.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Santhony from Sand and small gravel problem... I guide in AK and some rivers I am on have sand or small gravel area throughout. Where the tongue and the shoe connect there are two holes that allow a lot of material to get in. Some days I have to dump my boots mid day because it gets so annoying. Otherwise a good overall product and have lasted well through two months of guiding.
