Rapala Pro Wear Hybrid Waders

Made of a 3.5 mm NBR (nitrile butadiene rubber) compound with a breathable three-layer upper body, the Rapala Pro Wear Hybrid Waders represent a new ultra-light wader concept and a distinctive design.

Despite its similar appearance, NBR is not categorised as neoprene. When compared to CS neoprene commonly used in waders, lab tests show how NBR is:

15% lighter in weight

17% faster in compression recovery*

90% better in tear tests*

40% better in tensile strength tests**

*ATSM D1056 standard; **ATSM D412 standard

Apart from the new generation body material, the Rapala Pro Wear Hybrid Waders feature durable ceramic knee prints, D-rings for accessories, ergonomic 3D mesh shoulder straps, adjustable gravel guards and a breathable fold-down style upper body for shallower wading excursions and ventilation.
