Patagonia has made worthy upgrades to its new ‘Swiftcurrent’ wader lineup this year, and the company’s very best wader, the Swiftcurrent Expedition Zip-Front Wader, is pretty fantastic. It’s rugged but breathable. The booties fit well and the included knee pads are awesome when you want to drop to one knee to release a fish or a nab a quick photo. Of course, there’s the zipper. Is it any good? It is. There is a risk, though: Once you try zip-front waders, you’ll always want zip-front waders.
