Product details

The Orvis Ultralight has reduced weight without sacrificing support and traction. They are designed more like a hiking boot and less like the conventional wading boot. This wading boot is good for anglers on a budget, concerned about weight of gear, and those anglers who often wet wade.

Key Features:

  • Lightweight Design – These are the lightest boots Orvis has ever manufactured and is 30% below the average weight of most wading boots in the industry.

  • Technical Sole – These boots have a Vibram sole that provides reliable traction and a Vibram EVA midsole to keep the angler comfortable on long days.

  • Durability Features – High-wear zones are sprayed with an abrasion-resistant rubber and the mini ripstop inserts both add additional durability without adding bulk.

What is a wading boot?
Wading boots are boots that are specifically designed to be used with stockingfoot waders. They are designed to be comfortable but yet durable and able to withstand rocks and other submerged hazards. The soles are often made of felt, or lugged for better gripping of the river bottom.
