The toughest days on the water are often the most instructive: they make us focus on the subtle details, reduce the variables and simplify our approach. We applied that same thinking to the toughest, most puncture-resistant waders we know how to make—and then we made them even better. Our Rio Gallegos Waders are built from our tested-and-proven 4-layer H2No® Performance Standard fabric package using single-seam construction to route critical seams away from areas of high wear, and their robust feature set offers the highest level of comfort, performance and durability. A slightly trimmer profile around the hip, waist and chest provides an improved fit that still easily accepts layers for long, cold sessions, while the innovative internal suspension system allows easy conversion to waist height and quick relief without having to remove your jacket. Motion-oriented patterning through the crotch means it’s no problem to swing a leg over gunwales, and articulation in the leg is designed for moments when fishing brings you to your knees—like keeping a fish wet during the photograph and release. If you fish in and out of boats, you’ll also appreciate the flat-panel gravel guards: they drain water quickly while resisting abrasion and wear while hiking or wading. Our booties have a more anatomical, sock-like fit and are made from a denser 4mm neoprene that resists compaction better over the long haul; they also have a poly-grid lining for added comfort. Outside, there’s a reach-through handwarmer pocket and large chest pocket with water-resistant horizontal zip for easy access to tippet spools, nippers and floatant. Interior gear storage includes a waterproof, flip-out welded TPU pocket, two drop-in stretch pockets and two internal daisy chains for tools. Other fishing-friendly features: center-back hanger loop for easy drying; stretch wading belt with low-profile buckle; removable knee pads; and a raised Fitz Roy Trout logo. Field repair kit included.

Water Resistant

 (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.


Patagonia developed the 4-layer fabric construction for our waders to increase breathability and abrasion resistance, move moisture away from the body, and decrease the weight.

Our exterior fabrics are densely woven 100% polyester microfibers for durability and puncture resistance. On one side we apply our H2No® waterproof coating for waterproof/breathable performance. On the other side we 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 we use a soft polyester tricot lining that increases abrasion resistance yet maintains a soft, supple drape. Finally, we apply a DWR (durable water repellent) treatment as the first line of defense in keeping these waders waterproof.

Men's Rio Gallegos Waders - Reg is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from comfortable, warm, and dry! The Rio Gallegos waders fit extremely well and keep me toasty while rowing down the river, and wading in Northern California chilly waters searching for chrome! I would highly recommend these to anyone looking for a quality wader. Patagonia over the years has surely stepped up their wader game and their customer service is second to none!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great waders This is the second pair I have owned and only replaced the old ones so I could have fresh material and use the old ones for back up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleasantly Surprised I had read the reviews of the current waders and the pervious ones; to say the least, I had some concerns. After fishing in these multiple times a week for the past 6 months during summer, fall, and extreme winter conditions I can say that I am really pleased with these waders. As a new guide, I take good care of all of the gear that I invest in, with that said, these have taken the natural beating of bushwhacking, ankles wedged between rocks, hooks attaching to my legs, and so forth. I have been water tight through and through. I would prefer a 100% elastic system, like that of the Simms G3 Guides, it just provides easier entry and exit. With that said, I don't think that warrants 4 stars. The updated fit is nice, just enough room to layer up in winter conditions, without feeling restricted. All and all I am really pleased with my purchase and would do it again. Patagonia is a great company with an awesome brand culture, I don't necessarily agree with all their political positions, but I appreciate what they are trying to accomplish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Wader I originally wanted the Zip-front Rio Gallegos however they were out of stock and I needed a replacement pair so I opted for these. I guide so I'm always on the water and demand a lot out of waders. I've tried most other brands through the years and usually end up disappointed. I'm 5'10" 165lbs. I ordered the ML as I like more room in the boot foot to layer up socks. I have to say these are the most comfortable waders I've ever worn. They fit great, not too baggy or too tight, I'm able to layer up without loss of mobility. The extra room in the boot foot is superb as well. There are plenty of pockets and storage for what you should need (they are waders not a vest or sling pack) and even have room for a bottle of water on the sides if so inclined.The design of the straps is the best I've seen. I'm used to Zip-fronts so was a little skeptical, however they are really easy to get on/off and lower for when access is needed to pant pockets or when "nature calls". For durability they seem more rugged than any other I've worn and so far so good. We'll see how they hold up with a full season behind them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from fit I'm 5'10 and I have a size 10 foot, weigh 183 pounds and am big in the shoulders. I was originally going to buy the large, but based on other reviews, I choose to get the medium. Just received the waders and they seem good in both height and width around the chest. There is not a ton of room around the chest to store lots of gear but enough room to store some smaller items. I really like the more streamlined fit and there seems to be lots of mobility in the crotch and leg area. The booties seem to run a bit large but fit in my wading boots. Looks like another quality product and can't wait to get them out in the water. Would have given 5 stars but haven't tested them in the water yet!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Super Baggy Super big and baggy. I followed the size chart very carefully and they are too wide in the chest and too long. They are not "less bulky than most brands" as it says on the size chart. Also, the suspender straps do not have buckles and can't be unclipped.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit, durable, and well designed I've had my Rio Gallagos waders for close to 3 years now. This is my 7th pair of fishing waders from my 1st days of fly fishing some 35 years ago. Hands down these are the best wader's I have ever used or owned. They are so good I bought my son a pair 2 years ago and he also loves them. Size L Reg was perfect for me: 6 ft. and range between 190 and 200 pounds. They are durable and reinforced in all the right places. The fit is true to advertised.
