Here is a short two minute video on how these Patagonia Crampons provide the ultimate traction while wading in rivers with slippery bottoms. If you fly fish rivers that can be slick, you need to watch this demonstration. These Patagonia Crampons, along with the Patagonia Tractor Boot provide the best traction in the industry. My Patagonia Crampons and Skeena Waders took me to Slovenia! Where will your Crampons take you?
Patagonia Crampons Description
After slipping and sliding through yet another slick, cobbled Skeena run, we came home determined to find a better traction solution. Drawing on his mountaineering experience, Yvon Chouinard disappeared into the Tin Shed and went to work. The result? Our new River Crampons, the highest-traction wading device ever built. The secret is in the widely spaced aluminum-bar treads, which are hard enough to cut through algae and slime, yet soft enough to grip the rock itself. The bars are mounted to a fully adjustable stainless steel frame and held in place with an easy-on, easy-off adjustable harness system. The River Crampon fits over any wading boot and comes in two sizes: S/M for size 6 through 10 boots, and L/XL for 10 through 14. Simple, easily cleaned design and fast-drying materials help stop invasive species transport.
