Patagonia Middle Fork Packable Wader
Patagonia Middle Fork Packable Wader
The lightest, most packable and most technically advanced waders we’ve ever made; featuring our new seamless bootie technology, they’re built from lightweight yet durable waterproof/breathable fabric and fold into a compact stuffsack for go-anywhere convenience and capability.
Providing maximum performance, packability and comfort, our new Middle Fork Packable Waders feature a streamlined design, innovative, low-bulk seamless synthetic rubber booties, and light-but-durable H2No® Performance Standard fabric with a waterproof/breathable barrier and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish. The lightest, most packable and most technically advanced waders we’ve ever made, their upper body is built from 3-layer, 3.5-oz 100% recycled nylon; the seat and legs are 4-layer, 4.5-oz 100% polyester (70% recycled). Better yet, the Middle Forks roll up into their own compact 8" x 13" stuffsack and weigh in at just 26 ounces. They’re optimized for travel, warm weather and backcountry fishing, but don’t let the light weight fool you—these revolutionary waders are built to last, with heavy-duty scuff guards, newly developed seam tape and single-seam construction which moves the seams away from high-wear areas. The strong and stretchy seamless bootie design also adds durability by eliminating the most common points of failure or leakage. An interior TPU-welded waterproof pocket keeps phone and key fob dry, a drop-down suspension system allows easy wear at waist height in summer conditions, and an adjustable wading belt keeps everything in place. After thousands of hours of R&D, we’re almost as excited to introduce the Middle Forks as we are to fish with them.

All-new Patagonia wading boots built by Danner.
To build the highest-performing and most durable wading boots possible, we paired our expertise in fly fishing and product innovation with Danner’s proud tradition of quality and craftsmanship. Engineered for the most demanding wading and built by hand in Portland, Oregon, our new boots are resoleable and can also be completely recrafted as they wear over time. They’re the best boots we’ve ever made—and we believe they’re the last ones you’ll ever need to buy.
Vibram® Idrogrip sole compound specially developed for maximum grip on wet surfaces; the sole offers great all-around traction for long approaches and mixed streambed footing such as rock, gravel and mud.
Perforated drains on both sides of boot upper clear water quickly; for faster dry times, upper design is free from unnecessary foams and backers.
Waterproof full-grain leather treated with a PFC-free saline solution tanning process for improved resistance to breakdown, even in salt water; the leather can be reconditioned as necessary.
Upper is stitched to 5mm rubber midsole for stability underfoot; a second, lower midsole is made from water-resistant polyether polyurethane that adds additional comfort and support.
Adjustable lacing system has traditional eyelets across the forefoot and speed lacing through the ankle; the speed lacing provides easy tightening, supports the ankle and helps lock the heel in place.
Aluminum bars are hard enough to cut through slime and soft enough to conform to rock surfaces.
Stitchdown construction creates a wider platform for more stability, helps protect the boot sidewall and allows the boots to be resoled by Danner.
Tough 1,000-denier nylon paneling provides excellent abrasion resistance.
The Foot Tractor Wading Boots elevate our award-winning, patent-pending aluminum bar technology to new levels of performance.
These comfortable sticky rubber wading shoes are extremely light and flexible, while providing stability, durability and foot protection.
These comfortable, felt-soled wading shoes are extremely light and flexible, providing stability, durability and foot protection.
The most technically advanced wading technology on the market today; U.S. patent pending.

A simple, yet highly effective and versatile, hardened, deep-biting stud made of heat-treated steel.
