Wading Support Belt

Don't Leave Home Without It

I bought this for fly fishing as that is what it is for...but a couple weeks before leaving for a bike trip through Bordeaux my lower back disc slipped just enough so that I could barely walk. Wore this on the plane over and on the first day biking...and my pain pretty much disappeared. I now wear my wading support belt always when I am fly fishing... Read More with two Patagonia work stations attached to the belt. With that I can stand and work the stream for 6 or 7 hours without pain. Am on this page now to order another one to have for regular use and leave my fishing setup intact. Beat back brace on the market.

So those who are out in the water in our waders for hrs at a time know what it can do to our backs. But mine is rough already b4 that. This brace makea every minute on the river pain free,and comfortable! Soooo happy i tried it! I may buy another just for work!

Great support

Does exactly what it was designed to do. Great fit and form, excellent back support. The only negatives are that it does not connect to the wader belt loops and if using a hip pack can be cumbersome to slide the hip pack around to gain access and then stow. A chest pack or sling would work better. Also the buckles were to wide to accommodate carryi... Read Moreng my hatch pliers.

Best wading belt/ net holder ever!

So I cant remember where I first saw one of these but as soon as I did I got one. First of all out of the box it looks great, felt incredibly sturdy, and could tell how well-made it was. The belt is a little stiff at first and the back pad felt a little hard. However once it was on and I adjusted the belt to fit me over my waders it formed to the s... Read Moremall of my back and gave me the same type of support I use when I wear a weightlifting belt and Im doing squats. The handle of my net slides in to the pouch designed for it to rest at your lower back and it fits like a dream. My net never comes out and is readily available when needed. You can either attach your net to your wading belt, or just go without any attachment at all. Sadly someone else must have really wanted one of these also and stole it with two of my fishpond nets from out of the back of my jeep. I just ordered two more because I love them so much and I leave one at my cabin and one at my farm so Im always ready to go no matter where I am.

Convenient and well made product

After recently finding myself needing back support, this wading belt with net holder was absolutely what I was looking for. I use a Fishpond nomad net (long handle) and finding the loop for storing the net requires little effort and it is easily pulled to land fish by simply reaching over your shoulder and grabbing frame of the net. Quality product... Read More and super functional!

Super supportive

I have a bad back and this is a life saver when wading.

Super comfy, supportive wading belt

For all-day creek sessions, this is a must if you want to take care of your back. Once you adjust correctly, it feels like you're getting an all-day hug.

Great belt

Fits great and helped decrease back discomfort after fly fishing for several hours

Needed support

Ive suffered from lower back pain for over a decade (I used to build stone chimneys working on scaffolding). One of the worst consequences is being uncomfortable wading and slipping on rocky river bottoms. This belt really helps me. And I havent even figured what to put in the back pocket yet.

Cool Belt

Cool wadding belt. Provides great support and I love the built in net holder.

trout stream back support

Wading all day, this belt decreases fatigue & keeps my mind on clients catching fish instead of noticing I'm tired!! Absolutely love it and the Landing net holster is used constantly Thank you

Wading belt

I decided to purchase this to supplement the wading belt that came with my waders. This belt provided much more lumbar support and I was comfortable all day fly fishing. It is a great complement to the Patagonia waders.

True support

It was very comfortable to wear while fly fishing for 6 hours. Hardly felt it and it help the net comfortably and snuggly. Rarely felt the net hit me. I highly recommend this product. Once again Patagonia made an excellent and comfortable product I will wear often.

Great product!

This belt performs three functions: a wading belt, a net holder; and, a back supporter. Very useful when I'm on the water. My net handle no longer rubs, uncomfortably, against the small of my back and the net isn't getting snagged in branches as I move through the brush. Great product Patagonia!

Perfect for a long day on the water

A back saver and also for my shoulders! Excellent support for my lower back wading thru rivers and fighting fish all day in the water. The net holster is perfect for my landing net which was attached to my sling pack. That method would let the net drag in the water and pressured my shoulder which caused soreness before lunch time! No more shoulder ... Read Morepain with the net holder and no snags walking thru brush! Highly recommend for support and comfort.
