The comfort when you go fishing may seem superfluous, but those who spend whole days walking on rivers and streams know that it is not so. The ALPINE DIVER V2 waist waders from hotfly superb will give you the feeling of wearing a normal pair of pants but actually thanks to their features they will keep you dry for years. These waist waders are definitely the best choice if you want to stay cool even during the summer period especially if you fish in shallow water and do not need the chest model. These waders have also been very successful among fly fishing guides and fishing guards as they are people who spend a lot of time on the creek but rarely have the need to cross deep waters. The ALPINE DIVER V2 will completely replace the previous version being an evolution that brings with it significant improvements.
Like all hotfly superb waders, ALPINE DIVER V2 have no classic seams but rather connect their multilayer fabric thanks to a patented heat-sealing system that has proved to be a solution far superior to the classic seams because it is able to keep away the infiltration of water in a definitive way. The fusion of the material through pressure and heat avoids in the long run the annoying infiltration of water that the classic seams cause even to the waders of the most famous brands. After so much care put in the joints it would be a shame to pierce them after the third fishing trip, in fact, another point on which the designers of the hotfly superb have focused is just the material used for the fabric that consists of 5 layers of a fine fabric made in Japan that combines a high breathability to an high resistance to abrasion and tears.
Here are some technical details of the fabric:
- Water resistance > 30,000 mm (water column)
- Breathability > 5,000 g/m²/24 hours
- Weight: approx. 310 g/m²
- High resistance to abrasion and tears
Although the ALPINE DIVER V2 has a belt that guarantees its fastening to the waist, it is also sold with comfortable adjustable and removable suspenders. The two front pockets allow you to store some fly fishing accessories or you can safely keep your smartphone thanks to the waterproof zippers of the YKK that guarantee a perfect water proof.
The cut that has been given to all models of hotfly superb waders is oriented to the European sizes that ensure a more comfortable fit. Not having oversized the area of the seat and having increased the height of the crotch of the pants guarantees a much more comfortable and relaxed movement, especially in those situations in which you have to go up the riverbank or you have to climb over an obstacle. In addition, the ankle area has been increased so that wearing and put off the waders is much easier without having to exert too much force in a critical point such as the neoprene foot.
Speaking of neoprene booties, here are probably the more changes that have been made compared to the old version, in fact, much attention has been paid to the probably most delicate part of the waders. The thickness of the neoprene has been increased from 3.5 to 4 mm and the joint line has been modified and reinforced by a much stronger and stronger tape.
Here is a summary of the main features:
- 5 layers of fabric (made in Japan) highly breathable and resistant to abrasion and tearing
- Joints made by means of a patented heat-sealing system (no seams)
- 2 waterproof exterior pockets with YKK zips
- Adjustable and removable belt and suspenders
- Neoprene sand guard with tear-proof coating and hook position stop
- 4 mm neoprene booties with joints protected by a very strong tape
