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.
