Why are the strap buckles on chest waders opposing?

The front wader strap buckles are attached with opposite ends of the buckle to each side of the top on all DRYFT chest waders. Opposing buckles in this way makes it so that they can be clipped together, to make it possible to hang them from tent poles, racks or hanging rods without the use of a hook or hanger. It also helps the wearer find the right clip when pulling them over the shoulder. Another use that isn’t in the video, but was mentioned by a commenter is that the straps can be clipped together in front of the wearers neck, so that the front of the waders can be pulled down (for on river relief – talking to you men), and then the straps aren’t floating free and lost behind your back when it comes time to pull the front back up and buckle up.

Happy fishing!

Carrying a long handle net with the BKCNTRY 25 Backpack

Here is Jordan Young-Treadway (@treadwatersfly on Instagram) showing how he carries his long handle guide net on walk and wade trips. By looping it through the net holding loop at the bottom of his BKCNTRY backpack and also supporting the top with the roll top clips, it makes the net easily accessible when it’s time to scoop up a fish. Happy fishing out there.
