Although the PASSION are the cheapest waders in the hotfly superb line, don't be fooled, the same assembly systems as the high-end products have been used and the high-quality microfibre fabric, durable and breathable, will ensure you stay dry during your fishing sessions. Comfortable and quick to wear, the PASSION waist waders are ideal for beginners who want to buy a quality product, but also for the experienced fly fisherman who fishes a lot but not in extreme situations.
The innovative and patented heat-sealing system that distinguishes all the hotfly superb waders has been used to join the fabric, thus renouncing the classic seams, a system that is now obsolete and the first cause of unpleasant water infiltrations. The 4 layers of high-quality japonese microfibre are highly breathable and will keep you away from annoying punctures thanks to their great resistance to abrasion. In short, so much simplicity that has allowed us to create a pair of high-performance waders without emptying your wallet.
Below are some of the technical characteristics of the microfibre fabric:
- Water resistance > 30,000 mm (water column)
- Breathability > 4,500 g/m²/24 hours
- Weight: approx. 220 g/m²
- High abrasion and tear resistance
Inside the waders there is a folding pocket with zip closure where you can store personal effects and fly fishing accessories. Included in the price you will find the practical belt and the comfortable adjustable and removable suspenders. The sand guards, equipped with the anchorage hook, are made of the same material as the waders.
The European cut with which all models of hotfly superb waders fit guarantees greater comfort in movements. The seat area has not been oversized and the height of the crotch of the pants allow you greater ease when you have to climb over an obstacle or climb up the riverbank. Another clever idea that has been made throughout the line was to increase the circumference in the ankle area thus allowing for greater ease in wearing them but especially in put off them.
The 3 mm neoprene foot is the same as the top of the line - except the thickness. Here again, compared to the old models, the lines of the joints have been modified to have as few weak points as possible, all reinforced by a very strong tape that safely protects one of the most critical points of all the pants.
Here is a summary of the main features:
- 4 layers of highly breathable, abrasion and tear resistant microfibre fabric (made in Japan)
- Joints made by means of a patented heat-sealing system (no seams)
- Adjustable and removable belt and suspenders
- Inside foldable pocket with zip closure
- Sand guard in the same material as the waders with lock position hook
- 3 mm neoprene feet with joints protected by a very strong tape
