Simms Women’s G3 Guide Stockingfoots

MSRP: $449.95

These are some of the finest waders made for women, featuring a comfortable fit from the chest portion down to the neoprene booties. 


Patagonia River Salt Wading Jacket

MSRP: $349

The kind of top-of-the-line product we’ve come to expect from Patagonia, the River Salt Wading Jacket handled Alaska wind and rain with aplomb, but remained comfortable and allowed a full range of motion. 


Wright & McGill Big Horn Wading Jacket 

MSRP: $226

Four-layer breathable and waterproof fabric provide the guts of this wading jacket from Wright & McGill, which kept us dry during some steady on-stream rain in August and September. At this price, it’s a great option for Alaska’s fall anglers.


Redington Women’s Sonic-Pro Wader 

MSRP: $379.95

These waders held up to the test over a season in-and-out of the boat. Fit is comfortable, fabric is tough, and they are loaded with features.


Frogg Toggs Hellbender SF Guide Pant

MSRP: $119.95

It’s nice to have a backup set of waders on extended trips to remote rivers, whether lodge-based or rafting, and these were the perfect choice. From floating the Arolik to chasing summer trout in the Iliamna region, the Hellbender Guide Pants did not falter.
