Patagonia Introduces Women’s Swiftcurrent Expedition™ Zip-Front Waders

The Finest Women’s Waders on the Planet

Designed, built and field-tested by our team of hard-working women anglers, the Women’s Swiftcurrent Expedition™ Zip-Fronts set the standard for women’s waders. Built with Patagonia’s industry-leading, 100% recycled face fabrics, they’re more comfortable, fit women’s bodies better and provide exclusive, for-women-only features.

Constructed from our most robust, breathable H2No® Performance Standard fabric package, the Women’s Zip-Fronts move athletically in and out of the water with customizable-fit options that accommodate layering but won’t bag out when you go light. With a gusseted crotch, sock-like anatomical booties and adjustable top hem, wading belt and suspenders, finding an individualized fit for every body shape is uncomplicated and quick.

A waterproof front zipper makes everything more accessible and comfortable, while waist-mounted, quick-release suspenders convert the waders from full-length to waist-highs. Our rear-buckle drop-seat system means no more awkward, dangling straps during bathroom breaks. Integrated front and rear belt loops hold our Secure Stretch wading belt, which flexes just enough to provide a snug fit without sagging under the weight of a net or wading staff.

Other fishy features include removable knee pads for fish-releasing comfort, two soft hand-warmer pockets and two stash pockets—all with waterproof zips. An interior, flip-out waterproof pocket keeps phones and keys dry, and rock-resistant scuff guards at the ankles boost durability.

“We’re extremely proud to deliver the Women’s Swiftcurrent Expedition™ Zip-Fronts,” said Nicole Labrie, Patagonia Fly Fishing’s Global Product Line Manager. “By adding the Zip-Fronts into our women’s wader line, we’re assuring that the female angling community has access to the waders they deserve—full-featured, heavy duty, versatile and designed, built and tested for women by women. They are, without question, the finest women’s waders on the planet.”
