DRYFT Primo Zip Wader – 2019 model closeout

We have a few leftover 2019 model Primo Zip Front waders to closeout. These are first come, first served until they’re gone.

How these differ from the 2020 model:
– No black tool attachment strips on front
– No heavyweight TPU coated nylon belt loops
– Different styling of logos
– No waterproof media pouch included (can be purchased separately)

Designed with comfort in mind, the Primo Zip Guide Edition waders use a high quality TIZIP® waterproof main zipper to help take the production out of mid fishing session bathroom breaks, and makes getting in and out of your favorite pair of waders oh so easy. The strong and durable five-layer lower section (from the waist down) includes a single vertical seam design with seams running up the outside of the legs to eliminate seam abrasion when walking. The burly five-layer lower joins a comfortable and more breathable three-layer upper with plenty of secure storage pockets on the outside and inside, including dual large drop in pockets. Adjustable straps, belt, and upper drawstring let you dial in the fit, and flexible knees give freedom of movement allowing you to walk, run, crouch, wade, stumble, and crawl easily without restricted range of motion. Zippered fleece-lined hand warming pockets double as extra storage, and an adjustable Comfortflex™ semi-stretch wading belt, a nylon webbing non-stretch wading belt, and storage bag are included.

What about staying dry?

Breathable, 20,000mm DWR coated waterproof fabrics combined with NoLeak™ double taped seams bring the waterproofing to the next level. To top it off, seam ends and edges are triple taped throughout the legs to keep the water where the fish are.


Packed with features not available on comparably priced waders, the five layer Primo Zip Guide Edition wader features a full length front TIZIP waterproof zipper that allows you to release the Kraken with ease. 


With an MSRP of $499 the Primo Zip Guide Edition waders stand above any feature comparable wader on the market when comparing price to features.

2 reviews for Primo Zip Wader – (2019 model)

  1. Craig Bruno

    Had my zip fronts for a full 2 seasons and very happy with them.
    Had a pin hole in the heal and followed the instructions on the web site on repairs. My warranty was expired, all I had to do was send the waders with the info receipt and check for return postage and received them back as good as new!

  2. Richard (verified owner)

    Had Simms waders for 8 years, but definitely happy I made the switch to Dryft. When the 2019’s went on sale I couldn’t resist and had to have the convenience of the zipper. These Primo Zips are very well built and are extremely comfortable, especially with the neoprene belt. The gravel guards are snug but not difficult to pull over a wading boot. Plenty of pockets and room for whatever fly box or flask of whiskey you’re packing. I highly recommend these to anyone looking for a high quality wader at a great price!
