Gradient Pant

When colder conditions necessitate an extra insulating layer beneath waders, the comfort and adaptability offered by Sitka's Gradient Pant can come in handy. Engineered for enhanced mobility, the Pant features tapered legs and four-way stretch for optimal movement. The use of compression-resistant fleece ensures long-lasting loft and insulation, to draw moisture away from the body. The inclusion of built-in stirrups ensures a secure fit, providing all-day comfort without the need for readjustment.


  • Compression-resistant fleece allows moisture to move away from the skin while maintaining loft and insulation when wading in deep water.
  • Four-way stretch fabric for optimized mobility and comfort.
  • Tapered legs allow for easy, comfortable layering and minimal bulk inside waders or boots.
  • Low-profile waistband for adjustable fit without additional bulk.
  • Foot stirrups keep pant legs in place when stepping into waders or boots.
  • Skived seam construction reduces bulk and allows for easier layering.
  • Total weight: 28.8 ounces

MSRP: $179.00
