Patagonia M’s Swiftcurrent Expedition Zip Front Waders
Beyond the obvious, quick relief offered by a full-length waterproof zipper, there’s another benefit: Ultimate ease when putting on and taking off waders. Our Swiftcurrent Expedition Zip-Front Waders employ the new, super-beefy, fully submersible YKK® waterproof zipper that resists corrosion for easy, consistent use whenever and however you need to use it. Built for hardcore anglers and industrial-strength fisheries, Expedition Zip-Fronts are the toughest, most feature-rich waders on the planet. Completely redesigned to take advantage of our new, ultra-supple, 4-layer, polyester microfiber fabric package, which has passed our rigorous H2No® Performance Standard for waterproofness and durability, the Expeditions keep you fishing in comfort through the most extreme conditions. Above the waist, lighter (6.6-oz) material reduces weight and increases breathability, while the lower sections stand up to punctures and abrasion with our burliest (9.4-oz) wader fabric ever. New single-seam “baseball-style” construction, fully articulated legs and gusseted crotch provide enhanced durability and unparalleled freedom of movement. The new suspender system makes height adjustment a snap, and new, padded shoulder straps increase comfort for long days on the water. Secure Stretch wading belt stretches just enough for secure fit but won’t sag under the weight of bear spray or other accessories.
