Silver Sonic Guide Waders
New Silver Sonic Waders
The current pours against your legs as your heart pounds inside your chest. With each step, you're vaguely aware of what's happening, but it's quickly becoming an adrenaline-fueled blur of thrashing fins and vicious head shakes, set to the rhythm of the river. The fish on the end of your line doesn’t need any help to maneuver these waters. But you do.
In that moment, don't hope you'll stay dry. Be sure that you will. Fish with flood insurance. Fish with Silver Sonic waders.
Featuring our patented SonicSeam® technology, Silver Sonic waders have double-reinforced seams and a grand total of zero stitch holes, meaning they will last longer, cover more water, and become your go-to pair of waders no matter the conditions. Silver Sonic waders are hard-wearing, everyday waders built for men, built for women, built just for you.
Men's Guide Waders
The newest member of the Silver Sonic Wader family is also the toughest. Wear them. Abuse them. They’ll keep coming back for more. Built for the demanding rigors of full-time fishing, the Silver Sonic Guide Waders are designed to keep you dry and last longer than your last three pairs of waders combined. If these waders magically turned into people, they would have thick Viking beards, smell like freshly chopped lumber, and carry you around everywhere you wanted to go.
Seriously, get a load of these stats: the Silver Sonic Guides are up to 300% more abrasion resistant and 40% more puncture resistant that the Silver Sonic Convertible-Top waders. In sports terms, those are Hall of Fame numbers, and we're proud to say they were accomplished with performance-enhancing SonicSeam technology. You won't find that with replacement-level waders.
Men's Zippered Waders
Our most technologically advanced wader just met the zipper. The result? Convenience, comfort, and the easiest waders to put on and take off that we have ever developed. You might be asking yourself, "Do I really need a zipper on the front of my waders?" The next time you're wearing traditional waders and you realize you had a few too many cups of coffee that morning, this question will become extremely easy to answer.
The Silver Sonic Zippered waders are the result of taking our patented sonic-weld technology—featuring a lightweight and durable 4-layer nylon outer shell—and marrying it with a YKK Aquaseal zipper. Go ahead, look up those zippers. They're completely waterproof and amazingly reliable. Just like these waders.
Easy on. Easy off. Always dry.
Men's and Women's Convertible Waders
Versatility is almost always a good thing—especially when it comes to a pair of waders. Despite our best efforts, we can't control the weather and we can't foresee everything we might encounter on the water. That's why taking to the stream with the most versatile welded waders on the market today is much more than marketing jargon; it's in your best interest. In the heat, in the cold, and especially when you might encounter both, these waders pack a serious punch and will keep you dry and comfortable all day long.
So it's awesome that the Silver Sonic Convertible-Top waders have won accolades from publications, been featured in product reviews, and are flying off the shelves, but here's another little secret about them you may not realize. The best endorsement of these waders might just come from the people who created it: These are the go-to waders for Orvis employees all over the world. We wear them. We fish in them. We trust them.
Over the years, the most common feedback we've received from female anglers is that we haven't offered any waders that were truly designed with women in mind. Until now. After taking input and suggestions from a large number of female anglers, we started over from scratch and designed a wader built specifically for women. We tested them on a wide variety of body types, made tweaks and adjustments, and we think the results speak for themselves. Never again will you have to borrow a pair of waders. We have your size.
Sonic Welding Technology
Several years ago, we introduced the industry's first sonically welded wader, taking advantage of a unique seam-sealing process we developed and patented. These sonically welded seams maintain low profiles, reducing the potential for fabric abrasion, which is the primary cause of leaky waders. Additionally, all stitches and holes have been eliminated, creating a stronger, more durable seam in the process.
The first iteration of this technology appeared in our Sonic Pack & Travel waders, which were used by customers, field testers, and guides for several years—to rave reviews. For the Silver Sonic family, we upped the ante by adding in additional features, listening to customer feedback, and implementing valuable suggestions gathered during our field-testing process.
The results? The Silver Sonic family of waders are, without a doubt, the most versatile, thoughtful, rugged, and comfortable group of waders on the market today. They will last you longer than ever before, perform admirably in any condition, and stay as comfortable as your favorite pair of blue jeans, with one distinct advantage over denim: You will stay dry.
Fish with flood insurance. Fish with Silver Sonic waders.
