Patagonia Men's Swiftcurrent Packable Waders

May 9, 2022


Super rad. I'm a fly fishing Guide and spend 100+ days a year on the River. Super lightweight. Can layer up. Am able to wear with the least amount of clothes...and bundled up in January.

Light is Right (for Waders)

Previous to owning this pair I thought waders were lame: heavy and cumbersome. Packing these for my first fishing trip of the year changed my mind completely. Barely noticed them in my bag, the stuff sack is perfect. Stepping into them the length is good, even for someone with short legs like me. Shoulder strap adjust system is very nice. Functiona...

Good Investment

I've had these waiters for quite a few years now I want to say 5, I couldn't tell you one bad thing about them. I just now sent them into repair due to my feet getting wet. but to me, I got my use out of them and after repair, I will continue to. If you are looking at getting them just do it they are worth it I beat the hell out of my stu... Read Moreff and they held up. i couldn't be happier with my purchase

Rad and Tough

I travel a ton and often times the idea of waders fitting into a bag where size and weight limits are restricted, these are essential. Heading to Russia for a couple weeks, I gambled and only took these with no back up knowing how much bushwhacking we were going to be doing. Weather was pretty poor and there were nights where I literally just too... Read Morek boots off and slept in them. I was amazed that after 2 weeks, walking 8-10 miles a day through the prickliest of brush in Kamchatka, were ready to head home with nary a leak. Incredible wader...

Great fit, durability not great.

Have been wearing these waders for about 6 months. They are very light weight and fit great. Got a pretty good size tear in the upper thigh area from walking through some brush. Was able to repair them and still wearing them. Im pretty light on my gear but am in the water a good 2-3x a week. I would recommend them but may look at other options as w...

nice and lightweight (but too light?)

I tried this new pair out for this past season. I loved the lightness and ease of slipping on and off; the fit was slender and good and they were easy to move in. But I was surprised that after 10-12 uses, I got a leak where my big toe hits the front of the boot -- not a puncture but rather just the rubber (a choice versus neoprene?) wearing thin w...

Perfect Fit and Function

Once you finally get over how incredibly packable these are and that inside the stuff sack they are packaged in, those are actually waders, they are incredible. Very light yet durable enough for regular wear as long it doesnt involve a lot of bushwhacking. The fit is perfect, not too baggy nor too tight. The suspenders are very comfortable and the ... Read Moreconversion to waist high is simple. The bootie is probably the most unusual thing about these to get used to, but once in a wading boot it feels great. These are optimized when paired with the river salt wading boot, which doesnt have as much volume as other boots so you get a great fit with the no bulk bootie on these waders. If the water is quite cold, simply add a neoprene or fleece over sock layered over your wool socks and you can wade in comfort. Thanks for such a great innovative product Patagonia.

Comfortable & convenient, but definitely not durable

I've used these waders several times now and have been enjoying them. I'm 6' 2" and 195#, and the MLM size fits great. The booties are thinner than most waders, so your boots might fit a bit loose. They're comfortable, lightweight, and easy to pack which makes them great for traveling. However, on my second day wearing th... Read Moreem I lost my footing while in the river and took a knee on some loose rocks which tore a hole in the knee area. I was pretty surprised and quite disappointed at how easily they tore. Luckily they came with a patch kit so I was able to repair them. A reinforced knee area would be a great improvement to this product.
