We tasked our team with an impossible job—rethink waders from the ground up. Make them lighter, stronger and more versatile while using durable recycled materials that never need to see a landfill. In short, we wanted tomorrow’s waders today.

Fishing vests haven’t really changed since Lee Wulff cobbled the first one together in 1931. And, for more than 90 years they’ve been… fine. So, when we set out to rethink fly fishing’s most fundamental piece of gear, we didn’t want a simple update. We wanted a once-in-a-century transformation.
