We are proud now to offer you Patagonia Men's Rio Azul Waders.
Patagonia Men's Rio Azul Waders are lightweight and packable H2No™ Performance Standard waterproof/breathable waders for hot weather or the traveling angler.
Patagonia developed the 4-layer fabric construction for waders to increase breathability and abrasion resistance, move moisture away from the body, and decrease the weight.
The exterior fabrics are densely woven 100% polyester microfibers for durability and puncture resistance. On one side they apply the H2No® waterproof coating for waterproof/breathable performance. On the other side they apply a Hydrophilic laminate that pulls moisture away from the body so it can be passed out through the exterior shell.
To protect the hydrophilic laminate they use a soft polyester tricot lining that increases abrasion resistance yet maintains a soft, supple drape.
Finally, they apply a DWR (durable water repellent) treatment as the first line of defense in keeping these waders waterproof.
DWR (durable water repellent) fabric finish repels light rain and snow and decreases dry times. When DWR is used in conjunction with a waterproof/breathable barrier, the DWR finish keeps the outer fabric from becoming saturated so that the breathable barrier can do its job.
Check it weekly because we will add interesting articles about how to build interesting flies, tips and tricks and step be steps about how to tie a specific fly.
