When making Guidelines first ever wading gear for women, it was natural to involve our female Power Team members to give us their valuable input. The result of our sessions ended in a family of products named after the famous river Laerdal, also called the Queen of Rivers. Comfort and movability is everything during extended days of fishing and therefore this wader comes both in a regular and a more generous fit called Queen. This wader uses a perfect mix of a durable 4-layer fabric from waist and down and a lighter more flexible 3-layer fabric above the waist. The cut over the chest is made extra high to add warmth and this together with the WAS™ around the waist really gives you the comfort of being out all day in tough conditions.
The vertically adjustable Elevator™ Braces, turns this piece into a waist wader in seconds giving you superior comfort during warmer days or when hiking. The chest area is multi-functional as it features a protected spacious pocket, a fleece lined hand warmer pocket, a flip-out hanging pocket and a Tool Bar™ for your accessories. Please note that the pockets are not fully waterproof, and you must not store mobile phone, car keys or other electric equipment in here. The perfect fitted stocking feet feature the most sustainable and functional solution out there using plant based Yulex® Natural Rubber and a limestone based high density sole. Gravel guards in main fabric material with hook for connection to wading boots.Weight of the Women´s Laerdal Wader is 880 g excl stuffbag (size Women S) and they are available in sizes XS-XL, MQ, LQ and XLQ.

CLEAN-ALL-THE-WAY PRODUCT REPORT
Heavy duty main materials are used which provides for a long lasting product. All main fabrics, buckles and much of the trims are 3rd party bluesign® approved. This wader is a fluorocarbon free product. To reduce the use of petroleum-based neoprene, the socks use plant based Yulex® Natural Rubber from FSC certified hevea rubber trees. Yulex® Natural Rubber reduce the CO2 emissions by up to 80% compared to petroleum based neoprene. The rubber is laminated to recycled polyester on both sides and fastened by using a water-based glue. This is by far a better choice for the environment compared to industrial neoprene. For the stocking foot sole, an extremely high dense rubber is required and here a limestone based rubber is the best combination of performance and endurance while caring for our planet. This material uses calcium carbonate from limestone sedimentary rocks to form chloroprene rubber chips and they are then melted, infused and baked into foams before sliced to the correct thickness.
