The Curated Take
Any fly angler who fishes a lot should definitely considering the Orvis Mens Pro Wader. They are mad from Cordura fabric with 4 layers upper and 5 layer lower. These are by far the most durable waders I have ever owned in 30 years of fly fishing and are extremely comfortable in all water temperatures. Plenty of pockets for storage and dry storage for those important items. The built in fleeced side hand warmer pockets are just icing on the cake. The cons really aren’t bad cons and could be pros for some anglers. The cordura fabric is thick and durable but also stiff and does restrict movement a little. The removable knee pad aren’t very comfortable but also provide extra durability for the fisherman who likes to kneel down and be more hidden from fish. The athletic cut of these waders is slightly tight fitting compared to other waders but this can be fixed by jumping up one size. Overall, I’d put the Orvis Mens Pro wader on the top of the list of all waders available on the market.
- Best overall waders on the market
- High durability and comfort in wide ranges of water temps
- Extremely lightweight for a multi layered wader
- Athletic cut makes for tighter fit
- Removable knee pads are uncomfortable
- Cordura Fabric is slightly stiff
