Session wading pants

On point.


The DRYFT Session wading pants are your new go-to option when full chest high waders just aren’t needed or wanted.  The DRYFT Session wading pant features high tech, breathable five-layer 100% waterproof DWR (Durable Water Repellent) coated fabric, a minimalist design and the style to take you a notch above the rest.


Fit and Features

An outer pocket with a YKK water resistant zipper, and a flip out pocket hold the essentials, while the burly five-layer lower adds durability through the entire lower including the legs, knees, and seat. Contoured and flexible knees give freedom of movement allowing you to walk, run, crouch, wade, stumble, and crawl easily without restricted movement. 


Staying dry

Breathable 20,000mm waterproof rated DWR coated five layer polyester fabric combined with NoLeak™ taped seams bring the waterproofing to the next level. To top it off, seam ends and edges are double taped a second time to keep the water where the fish are.

    These pants have been my go to waders for all my fishing adventures in AK! Theyre excellent for warm weather and diving in and out of the drift boat, and if youre questioning thier durability for long hikes through gnarly brush…. they do it! Just finished guiding a moose hunt and lived out of these pants for the duration of the hunt! Any waders that dont blow out after that kind of abuse are well worth the money.

    I have used the DRYFT pants for 2 months fishing Salmon and Steelhead in Michigan, The are comfortable and sturdy, I want to buy a pair for my son who owns and operates FLYFIRE RIVER GUIDE SERVICE. Look him up for pictures. Best waders I own.

    I’ve been able to take these out on a few good trips now. I wonder how I used any other waders? They look good, the fit is great, they feel bulletproof but are super comfortable. I like that they came with seam tape and basic patch material as well. I feel like these are worth more than they sell for considering I paid more for another brand (that I won’t mention) but those leaked at the seams within maybe two months. Also I do have to mention that since these are pants you don’t have to take everything off when nature calls, which usually happens right after you’re geared up and ready to go right? If I get another pair of chest waders they will be from Dryft cause these are quality constructed waders. Shipped super fast too. Killer job guys

    One look at these waders and you know they are durable and well made. The fit is excellent and they are comfortable during a long day chasing trout. They look great too. I’m looking forward to many years of leak free fishing.

    Great product. Have had a couple other brands of wading pants and these are just a step above in comfort, style, and overall fit. Fast shipping and customer service. Can’t think of anything I would complain about. Used them for wading and in my PT boat and they work fantastic.

    Very comfortable wading pants. Will have to keep these in mind for my next pair of full waders. Then again, I hardly every really need full chest waders. They are good for warmth, but I almost never wade above my waist anyway.

    Wading pants are comfortable and warm. Material flexes &moves perfectly when stooping or kneeling to net fish. Almost like wearing sweat pants. The only thing I would change is the belt. It is soft & stretchy. I thought that was a plus but it’s not. The belt is so stretchy that it doesn’t work to hold the pants up, especially if you’re wearing a waist pack. A minor issue. Just swap your belt of choice. These pants are so comfortable that I’m buying the chest waders when mine wear out.

    Finally, a fishing company that understands what anglers need. Never been a fan of traditional waders, cumbersome and hot feeling when in them. These waders are super stylish and the color scheme is sick! I ordered the Large short which seemed smaller on the waist line for my sizing. But they fit perfect! My measurements are 45 waist 31 inseam and size 11 shoes. The waist line stretches a lot. So don’t worry about up to 40 on specification. Thanks again for a great product.

    Wore for the first time today . Like the zipper allowing for getting in and out of the wader easier. A little less room in the crotch area then I would like . The belt is a little to stretchy so I used an older belt I had laying around. Wish they were made in the US but then the price would go up . Other then that a good all around waist wader

    6 stars from Red Lodge, MT!

    Love the construction, fit, and price. I always had chest waders before and will probably never go back. I’m a 32×32 in jeans and a size 10 in boots, 5’11” and 180lbs. The Medium-Long fit perfectly. They definitely have enough room for warmer layers in the winter but don’t feel baggy like other waders. They basically look like pants so I have been wearing them to and from my fishing spots and get tons of questions and compliments. Even my tight ass dad from Arkansas was impressed and will be ordering a pair soon.

    Great job DRYFT!

    Over a couple of decades I have used all the popular brands of waders and wading pants and after fishing with my Montana guide who recommended I try Dryft, I did and these wading pants are by far the best I’ve ever owned. The fit, functionality, durable,sealed pocket (that actually works!) and of course style. I highly recommend the wading pants and will be purchasing the waders once my current pair begins to breakdown.

    Great pants, get price, and very practical … this review is for my son, who I purchased these for as a gift prior to an adventure to Montana. We fished for almost a week, sunup to sundown … he only removed the pants to sleep at night … they we extremely comfortable and stylish to boot! I am seriously considering purchasing a pair for myself! Great job Draft team! -Dan Davey
