Be natural.

Based on the popular OG Session wading pants the new mid-weight SEEKR wading pants are your go-to option for your next quick and dirty fishing mission. The DRYFT SEEKR wading pants are constructed of mid-weight breathable four-layer 100% waterproof and DWR (Durable Water Repellent) coated fabric, a minimalist street-inspired design and style that puts them a notch above the rest.

Fit and Features
The breathable and mid-weight four-layer lower keeps you comfortable even on the warmest summer days while two outer hand pockets with YKK water resistant zippers and flaps, and a flip out inside pocket hold the essentials.  The YKK water resistant relief zipper makes getting in and out of the waders a breeze.  Contoured and flexible knees give freedom of movement allowing you to walk, run, crouch, wade, stumble, and crawl easily without restricted movement, and the durable and puncture resistant fabric holds up to heavy use.

    After having enjoyed using your chest waders over the last 4-5 years, I bought your session seeker wading pants.

    Broke them in last weekend fishing for browns and brookies @ some high altitude streams in Colorado before the ice closes business for the season.

    They fit great, and were comfortable in 40 degree weather without having an under layer. Liked the 3 pockets ,and pant front, each with zippers.

    As with the chest waders, I found the stretch neoprene belt to be a weak link. With the wading pants, I use a Vedevoo net sleeve attached with a belt in the back. I kept having to tug the waste of the wader pants up when climbing to a stream. Once I replaced the neoprene belt with a nylon belt that could be clinched tight, everything worked just fine.

    I recommend a sturdier belt for your waders,. Other than that, your waders, service, and instructional information are great. I have recommended them to several angling buddies, with the caveat on the belt.

    Great fit, comfortable and look good too.

  3. Jay herbert (verified owner)

    Best fitting wading pant I’ve had. Great mobility and light weight!!

  4. Dave N (verified owner)

    These wading pants are legit! The quality is great, the comfort is amazing and the look is next to none. I waited way too long to bite the bullet and get them and I am more than happy with the purchase! My buddies say jokingly that I look like I’m ready to go clubbing with them on (because they look like standard denim jeans).

  5. Eric Thomas

    The seekr wading pants are amazing. Been using them for almost a whole season now. Super rugged. Have tangled with a few patches of wild barbwire and still stay dry.

    The suspenders imho are not great. They honestly suck. They never stayed clasped to my waders. Ended up buying some from the store that actually work and stay on.

  6. Dave Miner

    Superb waders, flawless performance and as described! Bravo Dryft!

  7. Frank Hebner (verified owner)

    Extremely pleased with these waders. Price point, fit and durability / quality are all top-notch.

  8. Gary Dahlen (verified owner)

    I bought a pair of SIMMS pant waders two years ago — great product, but the inseam didn’t fit correctly causing numerous falls when I couldn’t lift my leg enough to leave drift boats or scramble up rocks on the shore. I’m 6’3″ with a 33 1/2 or 34 inseam. The extra length is just what I needed. I ordered the SEEKR wading pants in the Large Long size and they were perfect! They fit well, look good and seem to be durable. They were out of the regular color so I got the blue color and it turned out I really like the color!

  9. Chad Mast

    I haven’t actually purchased a pair of these yet but I was fortunate enough to wear a pair on a salmon fishing charter that our guide provided. Holy cow, I can’t state enough with how impressed I was. Comfortable, lightweight, roomy. I’ve never put on a pair of wading pants that are like these! Once I get the funds for them, I will be purchasing a pair for myself.

  10. Bryan Snyder

    Just wanted to drop a line and state how happy I am with the Dryft Session Seekr wading pants. By far the best waders I’ve ever owned.

  11. Britt (verified owner)

    Very please with my waders, have recommended to other people. Great quality. You guys need to come out with a woman’s line so I can get my girl in some dryft

  12. Adam B Embry (verified owner)

    Love my new waders! This jean-like look is unique and I’m kind of digging it. Easy to get on and off. But most importantly the support staff is really great. Would highly recommend getting yourself a pair of these. You won’t be disappointed!

  13. Norman Friedman (verified owner)

    Top notch as expected from DRYFT.
    great fit..I am 5’10” 182 lbs inseam 31 and medium long fits perfectly.
    if unsure of fit email DRYFT and they will help you figure out which is best.
    personally I do not need suspenders with these. the stock elastic belt suffices although
    I did purchase their heavier duty belt which I prefer for my full length DRYFT zippered waders.

  14. Nick (verified owner)

    I have used my waders a couple times now and they are solid. Very comfortable to wear. Ordered the large (5’11, 225) and they fir perfect plenty of room to move and comfortable to hike into those less fished spots.

  15. Mike (verified owner)

    Great wader made fishing a pleasurer.
    Highly recommend.

  16. Sebastian (verified owner)

    Used 4 times so far. Just great! Light weight. Perfectly sized M long for 160lbs 5’10”. Pockets are nice touch. Highly recommend.

  17. Robert Lefelar (verified owner)

    Real comfortable, kept me dry and had a bunch of positive comments on their looks.

  18. Frank

    Really liked the waders…except for the fact the L were too big and the ML too small and had to return both. Waist on L was way big (I’m a 35-36 waist) and these were huge. The ML were no bigger than a 34 waist at best…Quality was awesome…Fit was disappointing…

  19. Chris F (verified owner)

    I bought my SEEKr waist-highs late last season, and have been putting them through quite a workout. I’m rarely in water higher than my thighs, so I was looking to move away from classic full waders once the water temps get above 40. These waders are just great. At 6’1″, 180, the ML are a perfect fit. I haven’t seen it mentioned here before, but the neoprene feet are just the right thickness for proper warmth and fit great in my boots.

    As far as style (which isn’t really that important, but is worth mention) I have had a few people on the banks of creeks ask if I was cold or crazy as they thought I was wading in my jeans. Thanks for a great product. I hope that with good care they will last for many trips into the water.

  20. Patrick McGary (verified owner)

    I am so please with the session SEEKR wading pants, not only are they comfortable I don’t feel goofy wearing them in public (sporting goods stores) I also purchased the waterproof backpack it is a must have if you are hiking, fly fishing or just using it day to day! The guys at Dryft are awesome and there hasn’t been a product I have purchased that I wouldn’t recommend to everyone. I am proud to be one of their pro staff and look forward to see what’s next for production! (Hopefully wading boots) hint hint Nick!

  21. David K (verified owner)

    I’m so glad I got these. I have been looking to replace my full size waders as the streams I fish do not require me to wade more than thigh deep. I did a huge amount of research on the limited number of wading pant products out there. Reviewed all the various products specs and the good the bad and the ugly reviews. Didn’t feel great about any of em, fatal flaws reported on some and the limited sizing options compared to boot size seemed wrong, even on some higher end models. Came upon a DRYFT recommendation on a random fishing forum. These are simply perfect. I am 5’7” 160 pounds ordered a M. The fit is perfect, inseam spot on not baggy not short, the material is so comfortable, every detail, the pockets, the belt, is awesome and screams quality. The fit is so good I can climb all around the stream banks and through brush with so much ease compared to my full waders. I’ve been fishing more than I usual because these are just so easy to put on and fun to wear.

    Just got my Seekr waist-high waders a couple weeks ago and I love them so far! Had another brand for many years and got a lot of miles out of them but over time they started to seep and leak in spots. Finally decided to pull the trigger on these Dryft Seekrs and glad I did!
    Awesome style and color, and very comfortable for a full day on the water. I fish PA catch and release special regs streams, and usually walk/hike quite a ways when I fish so a light, comfortable pair of waders is a MUST. And these Seekr waders are everything they’re cracked up to be and more! Loaded with features, quality construction, great style, at a fair price too! If you’re on the fence….don’t be! Just get ’em, you’ll be glad you did!

  23. Sebastian (verified owner)

    Great wading pants. 5’11” 160 pounds …the medium long are perfect. Super comfortable. Very cool looking. Light weight will be perfect when it gets warmer out.

    After receiving our pair in November we have absolutely torture-tested the Session SEEKR Wading Pants and give them an emphatic 5 star rating. We’re typically on the water 4-5 days a week, so being able to handle excessive wear along with nasty brush, jagged guard rails, and crawling up/down some gnarly terrain is a must and so far these waders have held up perfectly. They are extremely comfortable with a soft feel and fit right, perfect for long 8+ hour days on the water and lots of spot jumping in and out of the truck. Our tester is 6’7″ 250 pounds size 14 feet and he was extremely pleased with the inseam sizing as well as the amount of room in the neoprene stockings (size XL). The boot lace hook on the gravel guards is a great feature to have as well as the outer gravel guard cover.

    Bottom line: we beat the heck out of these waders and they took all of our abuse and are still going strong. Excellent wading pants guys!

    I have one of every product Dryft offers and there is good reason! The products are top notch! I love having multiple wader options when I hit the river or a trip! Everything fits like you are wearing everyday clothing! Nothing like catching fish, being comfortable and knowing the reliability of the product! Thanks Dryft! Keeping do you!

  26. Steven Brownlee (verified owner)

    Nick, got the waders and tried them on. Fit great and can’t wait to try them out this Spring to put to the test in the water. The water is a little hard right now at -3 below in northeast Kansas. If they hold up the way they fit and feel everything should be fine. Hard to rate till I use them. Thanks again Steve

  27. Hugo Melchor (verified owner)

    Amazing color superb fit. I live the way they feel. Easy I and out. I really enjoy people telling me how great they look and i say and they do the job they are intended to do.

  28. Gerry & Ellen

    Nick & The Dryft Team,
    The Seekr Wading Pants are awesome! My favorite Christmas present from my wife Ellen! They fit extremely well, with plenty of room for undergarments while providing sufficient flexibility one requires while wading the river or getting in & out of the “Dryft” boat. Looking forward to breaking them in soon on the Methow!

    Happy New Year and may 2021 be filled with healthy environments and prosperity.

    Awesome active wader after 3 weeks and 10+ outings in Pennsylvania…in December.

    I am an active fisherman who likes to cover long stretches of trout water. These are my first “nice waders”. Previous waders have all been what you can buy at “big box store”, and I always end up sweating my n#%s off and having to put the waders on the dryer when I get home. No longer. These breath better than Lance Armstrong on steroids. I put the wader dryer AWAY! I never had a $500 pair of “fancy waders” to compare, but if these things last, I can’t imagine they are much better. Flexible, breathable, and easy to forget you are wearing them. Love the pants length option as I rarely went deeper than that with sweaty chest waders on anyway.

    Fit: I am 6’4″ 225#, 36-38″ waist, got the Large Long, no complaints. Suspenders are a possible addition, not sure yet. Work well for me with size 13 wading boots with room for some insulated socks. Much more flexible and easier to climb up banks that cheaper bootfoot waders I have had.

    Temperature: No issues so far in PA in December (being active, not “hole fishing”). Not baggy, but enough room to layer up underneath. With lighter neoprene booties, feet will likely be chilly once water gets into the 30s. Have not used them in warmer temps yet, but breathability bodes well until late spring when I get the sandals out.

    Longevity: can’t tell yet, will re-evaluate in the spring after some more miles and some kayak /wading combination trips.

    Looks: The “look factor” is VERY low on my priority list, but it is kinda nice to be able to walk into a convenience store with these on to pick up some bee…water… without strange looks!

    Bottom line: If you are an “active fisherman” in cold climates, or just like comfortable breathable waders in warmer climates, buy these. They seem to be a great midpoint between the box store waders and the $500 waders from the fancy brands.

    Thanks for a great product so far!

    I have been looking for some waders to surf fish in Southern California and found them. These are great and perfect for wandering the beaches trying to catch Halibut. They are easy to don and very comfortable to wear. I would recommend the suspenders, and waiting for them to return in stock.

  31. Hugo Melchor (verified owner)

    Every VETERAN and disabled vet should have these in their Arsenal.
    I love that they are just what the doctor ordered. Ask them about military discount. Hooyah the journey continues.

  32. Michael lemieux (verified owner)

    Great and comfortable, and the look is awesome. Highly recommend them, one guy I fish with is going to order some for Christmas for himself.

  33. John Smigaj (verified owner)

    Excellent product! Love my session seekr wading pants. The fit and style are spot on. I’m 5’10, 190lbs and the Medium were a great fit for me. I actually purchased the wrong size first time around and the staff at DRYT exchanged them quickly and easily for the correct size. Can’t say enough good things about the product and the staff alike. Highly, highly recommend!

  34. Bart G (verified owner)

    6’0” 220, Large Long was the ticket. I had originally bought size L, and was easily and quickly able to swap out for LL with Nick’s help.. great customer service and response time!

    I have used them about 5 times, both in freshwater and fishing the surf on the east coast. Really happy with them so far.

    These are my first waders, so I don’t have much to compare them to, but the components all seem very durable/high quality, and value for money feels solid based on the price of similar products from bigger brands. I like that they kinda look like jeans at a glance, so almost looks like street clothes if you want to hit the pub after a day of fishing without having to change.

    Warmth wise, I think they are a great balance. I want them to be comfortable in July/August heat flipping and frogging for bass but so far, I have also used them on the beach in New Jersey in November, and felt comfortable waist deep in the ocean. If you plan to wade in winter temps, I’m sure you could pair these with a heavy base layer pant for extra warmth if needed and still be comfortable.

    I paired them with some budget wading boots from Korkers, and so far the combo has been awesome, especially considering the Seekrs and boots all together cost well under $400.

    Kinda wish I added the suspenders to my order to save on shipping separately if I decide to buy them now. The included belt gets the job done ok, but it’s very stretchy and I think the suspenders would be more comfortable for me personally for an extra 25 bucks.

    Overall, very satisfied with the quality of the Seekrs and the awesome customer service, so I will definitely be supporting Dryft in the future. Gonna put these hard to work for the next few weeks during the fall striper run, and if they pass the durability test (I suspect they will), I’ll definitely be adding a chest length wader to my Dryft arsenal!

  35. Chad Heider (verified owner)

    Love wearing these pants!!! Fit is perfect, durability just right and they look great. If they had my size I’d buy them in the gray as well!

  36. Bob Rinker (verified owner)

    Very well made, very well designed, fit perfectly, many excellent features.

    I am 100% satisfied with these pants. Also the blue denim color look is outstanding!

    I purchased the wader suspenders also and they are excellent as well.

    Happy Fishing!

  37. Seth (verified owner)

    Extremely pleased with my purchase. Only other wader I have ever worn was a chest wader made of neoprene. Only worn them a handful of times and my experience was just not pleasant. First trip out with the Session SEEKR was amazing!! So easy to get into and out of! They look like jeans…and honestly very comfortable. The feel is soft… I dunno what else to say but thanks for a great product. I didn’t feel the water at all. My days of wet wading in cold water are done. If these get me through a couple of good seasons money well spent!!! Especially when looking at how expensive some of the big names are. If you are on the fence I’d say go for it!!

  38. klundy (verified owner)

    Solid wading pants. Top notch construction. Used them twice since getting them in Canadian fall rivers and have stayed warm and dry. Had to scramble through some nasty brush too and the pants held up great. Very comfortable. Pockets are in perfect locations. The inside stash pocket is great for keeping my phone safe. Amazing product!! Would recommend to anyone. Thanks
