    My husband and I wade fish the S Platte in Colorado three seasons a year. These have been a Godsend. I’m 5’4 and 150. The short large fit great with plenty of room in the waist for winter undies and not too large in the feet (I wear 7.5 shoes). My 5’7 husband liked mine so much he ordered the exact same ones. We are taking them to Montana for a month of fishing with complete confidence.

    I ordered these for a drift boat trip on the Deerfield River, MA. These waders are perfect when fishing on a boat or skinny water. I ordered medium, but probably could have used a small. But, they are super comfortable and so much easier when you need to use a bathroom, then my full waders. My guide was super impressed with them, and was going to order a pair for himself.

    I’m relatively new to fishing and just started using waders this spring. The Dryft waders are everything they say they are! No leaking, great fit, gravel guard does its job and enough room in the legs to get over those fallen trees and rocks. I’m 5’5 and 158 lbs with smaller hips and bought a Medium and it fits great. Now I’m able to catch that drift in deeper water with my new Dryft waders!

    I have wanted a pair of WOMEN’s wader pants for forever. I ordered a large. The adjustable waist- perfect! The length, not so perfect (too long I’m 5’4” with a 26” inch inseam) but the stocking feet fit nicely. I wore these on a recent flyfishing trip to Patagonia. Overall, very comfortable and I appreciated less bulk than a full wader. I wore these in a boat, not wading. And did I get a Grand Slam while wearing these? Sure did!

    I’m pretty new to fly fishing and I’ve learned the importance of having good waders. My husband found your website and showed it to me since you offer waders designed for women. I’m not easy to fit but your directions for measurements were perfect.

    I loved them the moment I opened the package. Clearly very well-made and attractive to boot! The fit is generous but that’s the way I like it. The seams are tight and all the zippers are smooth. If I had one minor kvetch, it would be that the belt loops are a little tight for threading the belt clip – but that’s no big deal.

    Your care for the environment and PNW location are also big pluses for me. I look forward to hours of great use with these fantastic waders.!

    When my wader pants arrived I have to admit that I was worried to even try them on. I’ve been wearing “mens” sized waders for years because first you couldn’t even GET women’s sizes, and then later when they started to have them, I just couldn’t find anything that worked with my sizing.

    I finally ventured onto Dryft’s website. PNW company (yes!) and they offer such a variety of sizing I had hope. I want to 100% compliment not only offering a variety of sizes, but CLEARLY and COMPLETELY showing measurements on your website so people like me can make a choice based on the best option.

    I did open the box, and I did try them on and they FIT PERFECTLY! I have fished on and off for 40 years. I’ve jumped back into the water more these last few years as I moved to an area with more fishable water, and I now work from home. I NEED decent waders that fit. Not waders that just “work” for the situation. Also, I hate waders, so having the option of wade pants is exactly what I needed.

    Thank you so much for the quality product that’s completely worth the price asked. Fair, and well made. They’ve been nice and warm for the times I’ve hit the water this winter. They’ll get a workout this spring! They seem very well made and sturdy. Here’s hoping they hold up to hours on the water.
