Patagonia M's Swiftcurrent Wading Pant


Versatile wading pants are perfect for any situation where deep wading is not required. Featuring a streamlined silhouette, an easy on/off comfort-stretch waistband and generous front pockets with drain holes. Reinforced gravel guards with bootlace hooks, belt loops and neoprene booties.

Combine hot weather and cold water, add some boulder hopping or drift-boat-gunwale hurdling, top it all off with the need to stay dry, and you have the perfect recipe for our new Swiftcurrent Wading Pants. These lightweight, easy on/off wading pants are made from supple, 5.1-oz, 4-layer, polyester microfiber fabric, which has passed our rigorous H2No® Performance Standard for waterproofness and durability. The streamlined silhouette, Secure Stretch waistband, generous front pockets (with drain holes) and belt loops make Swiftcurrents fit and feel almost like a regular pair of pants. Fully articulated legs with single-seam construction and gusseted crotch increase durability and freedom of movement. Full elastic belt, built-in gravel guards with heavy-duty scuff protection at the ankles and neoprene booties mean they’re ready to handle any fishing situation—except, well, superdeep wading—you can throw at ’em.
