Joshua Low – I fish hard. Bushwack through brush, hike miles, freezing temps, saltwater ect. Not only do these waders hold up through it all, they are comfortable and allow for excellent movement. The warranty and customer service I’ve received from dryft has been outstanding. Quick email response times. Quick handling time, everything you’d expect and more from an awesome company.
John Markham (verified owner) – I bought the Primo Zip Front waders late last year, in time for Steelhead season here in Northern California. I received them right away. No problem there. I was over all very impressed. Went out right away and fished in them. Zip Front very cool. I stayed nice and warm and dry. So far, so good. The next day I went out again. I went to put my licence in the little flip out pocket, went to zip it up and the zipper slider came right off. No big deal really, it doesn’t really effect how the warders work, everything else seems to be fine. Other fisherman are always asking about them. One guy said ” I didn’t know Simms made black waders”. I told him what they were and that they were great.( I didn’t mention the zipper). Overall they seem to be a solid pair of waders. I’ll wait for Steelhead session to end and send them back to see how your customer service is.
Daniel M. Zackuse (verified owner) – This waders are awesome! I cannot see a reason to spend 700.00 to 800.00 for just a pair of waders from other companies out there, I love mine so much a got a pair with the jacket as well. I also got the set for my wife, I purchased a size small for her and they fit her perfect and still she has room to layer for those cold days we have during the winter months. I totally will recommend to friends and family. Another selling point was this company is here in my home state, shipping was super fast and I’m sure if I ever had to return something it would be no problem.
Jeff Koons – Bought the waders and wading jacket for my trip to New York steelhead fishing and both preformed perfect. I fished in snow and 10 degree weather for 3 days and didn’t get cold or wet. Waders and jacket both fit perfect even with layers of clothes for the cold weather. The size chart is very accurate. The fit and comfort of these waders are top notch and the pockets are perfectly designed. If you are looking for a great pair of waders DRYFT waders are just as good as other comparably waders and less money. Customer service is top notch also. I decided to order the jacket after I already received my waders and needed the jacket in 5 days. I emailed DRYFT on a Saturday and they got back to me in minutes and answered all my questions and made sure the order was processed and shipped.
Jason Buik (verified owner) – If you’re are serious about fishing I wouldn’t even look at any other waders! I used the sizing chart (6ft 3 and 200 pounds) and the large fits perfectly. Winter steelheading on Vancouver island can be pretty lousy with the weather we get but not anymore! All in all a very good product and I would recommend them to anyone.
Eric (verified owner) – I got the kracken waders and primo jacket with the face mask combo for christmas. I was super stoked on them. Went fishing and they were pretty amazing. I would recommend them to anyone looking to buy any $800 zip up wader. The only thing i didnt like was the fact after my wife purchased them at the “holiday sale price” they went down in price after the new year for the same combo deal. Other then that they are awesome. Stay warm and dry all day.
Ford (verified owner) – I have been search for front zip waders and not wanting to spend $800 to own a pair! I couldn’t be any more pleased not only saving over $400 but the quality is $800 itself! The customer service is just as amazing as well! Purchasing another pair from Dryft in the spring!
Chris Pinksron (verified owner) – Very Very Very Impressed!!!!! Tried my Primo Front Zipped Waders for the first time this weekend on the Texas Coast. I was truly amazed with the fit and comfort as well with the easy mobility I had. The Pockets and D rings are fabulous and I can really tell that a lot of time and research went into the design. I can’t say enough of the quality, design & comfort this offers for the Price. Kudos Dryft!!!!!

Albert Bekus (verified owner) – As an 80 year-old trout and Atlantic salmon fisherman, I have been wearing out and buying waders for over 60 years. Just recently, a Maine guide and friend of mine (Mark Danforth), recommended I try the DRYFT Primo Zip-front waders. I did, and tried them out on the Miramichi this October(2017). What a grand surprise! The Primo Zip front is by far the best waders I have used regardless of price. The fit is perfect, the comfort luxury, the zipper flawless, and they are actually easy to put on and take off! What else can an old guy ask for? I thank DRYFT for producing them and Mark Danforth for recommending them. I will next try them on some heavy tail waters here in Tennessee with a friend of mine, who is also in the market for a new pair of waders. You don’t have to guess which waders I will recommend.
Kevin Rucker – I’m throughly impressed by my S14’s. The fit is great. In my experience they’re every bit as warm for winter days as my G3’s. They’re tough. Im rough on my gear. Put a few scrapes in them but the scrapes never went all the way through and didn’t leak. The crotch section has started to leak a bit. Happens with every brand. Got around 70 trips out of them and have no bad feelings about ordering a new pair to replace the leaky ones. Overall they’re a great product. Well done.
jonesen003 (verified owner) – i bought the s14 a few months ago, and i love them! i would recommend them to anyone! i fish weekly and they’re holding up perfectly! they feel extremely durable and they fit perfect! i’m 6’0″ tall 185lbs and a size 12 shoe and the large is perfect. my buddy ordered from one of the expensive companies and paid 400$ and is sending them back bc the feet are to small and the top is to baggy. he tried my adrenalines on and now he’s hooked he’s ordering a pair! and before i ordered i had a few question and customer service got right back to and answered all my silly questions with no problems, they were a pleasure to deal with! don’t hesitate and ORDER FROM DRYFT!!!

Being the really smart guy that I am I decided I needed insulated waders. You know, cause the water is so stinking cold that you just drop your beer in the river and it becomes a frosty beverage. These insulated waders caused this poor ole country boy to well, sweat at a rate that should only occur under two circumstances. One, a hot Texas summer and two… well I’ll leave that to your imagination. So, I did what any good American would do. I got my smart phone out and asked siri…naw. Really, I saw an ad, let it sink in for a while. Read these great reviews that told me how much they loved the waders ect.
So, I figured my 5th set of waders in as many years, it was worth to just to see if they (DRYFT) could do the job. I have to admit, I was excited as a school girl who just made the choir when the package came. The mail man was not to thrilled that I was about to take off my blue jeans and try these on at the post box! No, I really didn’t try them on at the post box. I tossed them in the truck and promptly headed out to the lake to fish. When I put them on it was nice to know that if I needed to I could get them off in a tight situation. I was worried about the zipper, but I spent the better part of an hour with the zipper submerged and not a leak. When nature called after a few adult beverages, well I don’t have to tell you how convenient the zipper was. So, all in all. I lov’em! Good job boys, y’all did good!! I hope that folks make it through this review and at least see that you make one hell of a product.
I;d also like to add that I was contacted shorty after my purchase to make sure i was satisfied with my purchase. in not someone who is brand loyal but when it comes to Dryft, they will be the only waders i own from now on!
I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND these to any client of mine
cons: only one. i wear a taller boot (korker whitehorse) and the gravel guard needs to start about 1-2″ higher on the leg to get the proper fit.

I’ve been looking to buy a new wading jacket since returning from a cold, windy and rainy trip to Montana recently and realizing my old jacket just doesn’t cut it any longer. While researching and shopping for a new jacket online I came across the DRYFT website. I had a few questions about their jacket and fired off an email. My first impression was “WOW”. I sent the email inquiry and had an answer within 30 Minutes. I then ordered the new PRIMO Wading Jacket, it was a Friday afternoon. USPS delivered the jacket on Monday, a second WOW, 2 day delivery Seattle to Denver. Examining the jacket reveals a well thought out functional design constructed with quality materials. First, the articulated raglan sleeve for a more natural and comfortable fit with no seam on top of the shoulder to leak (one of many problems with my old jacket). The adjustable snag less cuff design and the smooth front pockets with waterproof zippers, no velcro to catch your line. A clever internally adjustable drawstring at the bottom eliminating another potential snag point. A soft collar and adjustable hood add to the functional features. All seams have been taped to assure they are sealed. Although the jacket has plenty of roomy as well as hand warmer pockets the one thing I find missing is an interior pocket for the likes of a cell phone or license, not a big deal as my shirts have pockets. Thanks DRYFT for great customer service and a well thought out, functional, well made, affordable jacket. Now I’m just waiting for another cold, windy and rainy day to try it out in real life and not just in the shower.

I love these waders. I ordered the S14 adrenaline waders before they were out and had to wait a a bit for them but they were worth the wait! Very comfortable and got lots of looks from my fellow fisherpeople! I passed on the info to them and hopefully they will order a pair. Love them!!

As the owner of Chugach Backcountry Fishing in Alaska I’ve spent many days in the rain feeling damp and soggy after a couple of hours in “100% GoreTex” products. It didn’t seem to matter which high-performance brand I wore-I always found that eventually my coat and I became saturated-the S14 Wading Coat changed that. As with my Dryft waders, the S14 Jacket not only fits well, looks great, sports a lightweight feel, and is comfortable for rowing in but it is absolutely the best waterproof coat I’ve used. As a testimate to my belief in this product, within one week I outfitted my entire guiding staff and my family in it. It is the small details of any product that can make it a favorite for everyday use-that’s where in-field product testing makes all the difference. Dryft did their homework on this one. I am 100% comfortable leaving cash and my I phone in waterproof sealed pockets, the soft liner on the high neck and in the pockets of the jacket are perfect for cooler temp days, and the peripheral vision I have when the hood is deployed are qualities that every jacket should offer. If you want to stay dry on the fly, the Dryft PRIMO is for you.

I absolutely love this jacket out of the box. I have not had a chance to try it out in hard weather yet, but can say that style, fit, finishing, quality of materials are all top notch. Their style is great, these guys know how to deliver what so far appears to be great style coupled with what appears will be a bomber jacket at a very reasonable price.

As they did with their waders, Dryft has done it again with the Primo Jacket. I absolutely love this jacket, the fit is perfect, it is breathable, movable and stylish. It has all the pockets and compartments that are needed for a full day on the water and it will most definitely keep you dry and wanting to continue fishing even when the conditions aren’t promising. There is plenty of room for layering underneath as well. It is the essential jacket to have here up in Alaska with the way our conditions can be sometimes. Plus, you absolutely cannot beat the price. I have been a supporter of these guys since the beginning and will be until the end. Dryft continues to put out stellar products, and they are without a doubt the future. Everyone should check them out!

Being a Professional Fishing Guide I need equipment that not only fits well and is professional looking, but will also withstand the test of time. After recieving my new waders the day after ordering them (yea freaky fast) I was very pleased with the fit and the overall styling of the water. They are built very well and I would compare them to sets I have spent double the money for. The knee are very reinforced and the set as a whole feels very well built. Yesterday was my first day wearing my new waders, and it was for over 12 hours. The contoured legs help eliminate that awkward bunching feeling in the legs and help reduce drag when in swift water. They stay high on the chest when wading and walking and our very comfortable to fish in all day. I am very impressed with my new DRYFT Waders and I am looking forward to using them on my upcoming adventures.

I received my waders about 2 months ago. The first time I wore them was in the tailwaters of Lake Taneycomo below Table Rock Lake. My fishing buddy that day had his neophreme’s on and was complaining about being cold. I was toasty and warm all day. Amazing for how light they are.Well the weather has warmed up here in the Ozarks and they are able to keep me cool even on low 90 days. I also like the flexibility I have to kneel down in the water to net and release the fish. Awesome!!

Received mine in the mail yesterday and I didn’t waste any time getting them into the surf. The fit is perfect and very comfortable (XL for me – 6″2, 220lbs, size 13 foot). The design leaves nothing to be desired – they look great and have a bunch of zippered pockets. Not only that, but they make other fisherman jealous; I had two guys within the first hour ask me where I bought them, and then mention how ugly their waders were in comparison. Great product, great waders, great customer service, and a great fashion statement.

Waders fit great. Had them out one trip so far… no complaints. Thanks for going out of your way to get them to me in time for my trip!!!!

Freshest set of waders I’ve seen, cuz they don’t look like every other pair out there! These bad boys are awesome and so glad I waited instead of buying a pair of those other overly priced mainstream waders. Just wait, because they may just become the new standard on the water. Way to go guys!!!

I have been wearing waders for 100+ days for the last 15 years. I’ve probably worn a wader from every company you can think of. After receiving my new adrenalines the first thing I did was try them on , it seems my body style in other waders creates somewhat of a MC Hammer look. My Dryft Adrenalines fit like my favorite pair of jean, no excess, no oversized legs. Length is dead on. Next I checked to see how tight I was gonna have to make the suspenders. Not a single adjustment needed to be made right out of the box. I figured it was to good to be true. I got them in the water, every other pair of waders I have ever owned, I would always get water I call water suck, the legs get so tight it feels like they are gonna cut off circulation. Not in the adrenaline, kept me dry, comfortable, the booties didn’t bunch in my boots. As a competitive fishermen, and a guide. I will forever only wear Dryft Waders. Excellent job guys , keeping coming up with new product. You have a customer for life!!!!

I am a 5’8 female and the size small waders fit great and are super comfortable with total maneuverability. Not stiff or restrictive at all. I completely recommend these.
