I have worn these waders through 2 seasons likely 50 times. They have held up fairly well to some bushwhacking although I have tears around the sections covering the boots. The material is thin, BUT they are spring waders. I hope someday Patagonia makes a thicker version. As for fit, I'm 5'6" and quite lean. Most other waders have ... Read Morelots of extra material and look like giant potato sacks on me, but these fit well. With layers on, they're a little snug pulling the waders over my hips (34") but these fit very well otherwise. I wear a 7 to 7 1/2 shoe and the feet fit.
Disappointment! Horrible product
I bought these to wear during the summer and as a backup to a men's pair of patagonia waders. They leaked horribly from the crotch seam on day 1. Sent them back for repair and after several weeks received them back with a seam that was partially resealed. They still leaked so bad I could not wear them. Guess The repair shop didn't test th... Read Moreem before they sent them back. What a waste of $,not even 1 day of keeping me dry. The quality of the womens waders sucks! Not only are they made of much thinner materials and lacking in features when compared to the men's products,but they leak bad. I did like the fit of them,with the exception of the very large booties. They are much too large for a womens wader.
I bought the petite spring river waders back in April 2016 and have been pleased with how well they have held up. With more than 20 days of fishing each season,they have yet to have a tear or rip. I've even rowed our raft a few times in them and have been pleased with both the warmth they provide in colder days and the breathability while rowi... Read Moreng. Also,the handwarmer pocket is so convenient and ideal for colder days and after releasing fish in the cold river water. For sizing,I am 5'4" and typically a size 4 in pants. I ordered a Small,and while they fit well and look stylish when on,they are difficult to get over my larger hips and do prevent layering too much underneath. To mimic someone else's comment,I do wish the booties were a little smaller to accommodate my size 6 wading boots,as they bunch up in the boots. Overall,they are the best pair of waders I've owned and super durable!
I tried on my Spring River waders for the first time today. I ordered them online and was very skeptical about sizing and not being able to try them on beforehand. For those of you having issues deciding between sizes.. About me: 5'5' - 145lbs - size 7 (street shoe) - 35' bust - 39' hip I ordered a size Medium Petite The peti... Read Morete length has an inseam of 33.5' from crotch to ankle (not including the stocking foot) so they definitely cater to the high end of the height limit,especially because I am 5'5' Other than the inseam length,the sizing chart is very accurate if you take your measurements properly. I have yet to wear them out in the water but they seem very warm. I can bend down easily and can't foresee any reason why my movement would be restricted in them.
Great new women's waders
Have been wearing these waders this season,and the cut is better than any previous generation from Patagonia. Good features,cut,tough,breathable fabric. Only suggestions would be to make the feet a little smaller for "petite" notation,and the waist,for layered entry,could be a little bigger. Other than that these are great! Thanks for a t...

Not for 5 ft short petite
I ordered a Petite in Small. I am 5 ft short,actual inseam of 28.5 inches. The petite is stated as fitting a person with an inseam of 30 inches. Having owned another competitor brand in Small with a stated inseam of 29-30 inches,I thought I could get away with the small difference of 1.5 inches. This is not the case - Patagonia Petite is sized for ... Read Moreup to 5 ft 4 inches and caters for the taller end of Petite. I measured the actual inseam of the wader from bottom of the heel to the crotch - that is 35 inches,vs 33 inches in the competitor wader. From the crotch to the top of the front bib is 22.5 inches - vs 18 inches in the competitor's wader. Hope this is of some use to height challenged persons like me. I also hope that Patagonia can list the minimum height for this wader so that customers can make an informed choice.
Amazing Waders for Fly Fishing
I bought these waders in Norfork,AR at the Two Rivers Fly Shop where I go fly fishing and kayaking. They are so agile,light and comfortable! I absolutely love them and can't recommend them enough. I had no trouble kayaking and moving around easily. I tried on the Simms but they were unisex and definitely not as soft. Patagonia Spring River wad...
