1 review for Session Lite Wading Pants

  1. Flowstone Fishing (verified owner)

    I’ve been looking at and reading reviews of wading pants for over a year now. I’m a big dude and get hot and sweaty when fishing in anything above 60 degrees, so I wet wade 80% of the time, and hate the thought of sweltering days in waders. I love fall fishing though, and my choices are either numb toes when wet wading or profuse sweating with standard waders. I found Dryft waders at some point during this search and as a small business owner in the fishing industry myself, loved the idea of supporting this company. I had my eye on the regular Session wading pants (I fish the small streams of SE Minnesota, so no need for chest waders), but when I saw the lightweight version was coming out, I decided to wait. I’ve only worn them around the house so far, but my first impression is that these are fantastic. They don’t weigh a whole lot more than the quick dry pants I wear to wet wade and sitting, crouching, etc. will not be an issue as the material is very thin. I love the grey color and the subtle markings that make these unique but not over the top, and as a bonus, they match my new Orvis ultralight boots perfectly. The stretch belt looks nice, but without the ability to be manually adjusted, I’m waiting to see how it performs. And, with any “lite” or ultralight product, there is the question of long-term durability that can only be answered with time on the water. I better get out there…

      Thank you for choosing the Session Lite wading pants and for leaving a review. The belt can be adjusted on one end- there is velcro that sticks anywhere along that end so can be dialed in to an exact fit. Hope that helps. Thanks! -Nick
