Spring River women's waders from PatagoniaThe addition of a women's line adds depth to Patagonia's growing commitment to fishing gear. The Spring River Wader is designed to fit women with comfort and function in the right places with all the technological wonders of the men's waders. The EZ-Lock suspenders are mounted at the waist, allowing for maximum height in big water or pant-height for smaller streams in warm conditions. While we were not able to test the waders in appropriate conditions, Patagonia says the suspenders also allow for a quick bathroom break without having to get undressed. The waders will come in petite, regular and full (XS-XL in all models). Other items in the women's line include sun hoodies, shirts, pants and the River Salt Jacket. The Spring River Wader ($399), and a wide collection of other Patagonia fishing gear, will be available Jan. 1, 2014. http://www.patagonia.com/us/home

The Salt Lake Tribune is providing a look at some of the gear shown at the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market last week at the Salt Palace Convention Center. Because the show is closed to the public, we thought we would share a peak with the public about gear coming to the outdoors world. Items will be featured on the Tribune's Hiking Utah and Fishing Utah blogs. An Outdoor Retailer package will also run in the Tribune. — Brett Prettyman
