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!

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

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.
Gerry & Ellen,

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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!
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.

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!!

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
