Silver Sonic Guide Wader

Outfit yourself in the very best fly-fishing waders made.


The newest member of the Silver Sonic Wader family is also the toughest and best fly-fishing wader made. 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. Highly breathable and ultradurable, the Silver Sonic Guides are up to 300% more abrasion resistant and 40% more puncture resistant than the Silver Sonic Convertible Tops. The lower wader features a high-density four-layer breathable nylon, while the upper is the same four-layer nylon used in the Convertible Top lowers. Kangaroo-style handwarmer pocket with YKK water-resistant zippers. External storage pocket with tool dock. Y-style padded yoke suspenders. Flip-out interior pocket and removable waterproof pocket. Attached self-fabric, reinforced gravel guards with quick-drain panel. Anatomically correct, sculpted neoprene booties with rubberized lining on neoprene seams. Strategically placed lower leg seams run up the back of the wader, reducing abrasion. Easy-adjusting wading belt included. In overcast/taupe. Expanded sizes, now including extra long. Outer shell: 100% nylon. Imported.

    A great pair of waders - 8/28/2015

    After 17 years I finally had to replace my Orvis Guide waders. In "97" I was thinking that's a lot of money for a pair of waders...I'd say I got my money's worth! So I did not hesitate to replace them with the Silver Sonic Guide Waders. First off some drastic changes from the old pair with the stocking foot being the most impressive As soon as they arrived I slipped them on for a test fit and was amazed at how comfortable the Booties were, I sat in the living room with the waders on for a good 45 mins. in 100 degree weather before the wife asked if was going to wear them all night pure comfort. On the water they performed flawlessly, No sweating or bunching up. I really like the addition of the waterproof pocket and the gear holders.

    Very happy so far - 8/23/2015
    By: from Yellowstone NP, Wy

    To hopefully be as helpful as possible I will start with size and fit. I am 6 feet tall and 190lbs with a size 12 foot. I can usually wear size large in most products and these waders worked that way as well. I have a size large/regular and it works out well. I thought there was a little extra room throughout the waders when I first wore them but as soon as I put on some warm clothes on a chilly day I saw the wisdom of the roominess. Very comfortable fit. I have had these waders about a year now and have pretty much put them through the wringer. I'm not a roadside angler but rather a bushwhacker who likes to find the remote streams that don't see many fishermen. These babies have been thrashed for the last 5 months here in Yellowstone and they look just like the day I bought them. Thorns, thistles, briar patches and sage brush have no effect on these waders. I'm not reckless mind you but I don't baby them either and for the price, I challenge anybody to find a better product. Go to an Orvis dealer, get fitted correctly and you will be a happy angler !

    Quality Product - 7/7/2015

    These waders are well made and tough. If you look online for wader reviews, these waders are comparable to other brands that are 3 to 4 times the cost. Best bang for your dollar.

    Feels Fantastic! - 7/6/2015
    By: from New Hampshire

    I have now fished 8 days wearing my new waders. I could not be more impressed - no sweating, warm, very comfortable fit (xxl short), and cool details - pockets, straps and belt. The stocking feet are so comfortable and easy fitting into my boots. These are first class waders. They have made my days in the river(s), Frying Pan, and Upper Connecticut, so enjoyable. This was my first upgrade in many, many years. Boy, am I happy with Orvis gear.

    2nd pair - 5/13/2015
    By: from Sunbury PA

    I always pride on the face that you get what you pay for. Less than One year prior to the launch of the Sonic seam technology I purchased the guide series wader equivalent to these that orvis had out at the time...after just a few month of use and days before a out of state fishing trip they were leaking very heavily in the crotch area...The process of replacing or repair I did not have time for as my big fishing trip was just one day away....I was able to work out a deal with customer service and they got me in a pair off the shelf of a local orvis dealer and defected my pair out..they also upgraded me to the new silver super sonic seam guide series wader....I was very impressed and loved the wader but as it has numerous pockets and dry bags and it's a very convenient comfortable wader....but we all know the real question was if they will or how long they will hold up...I've had the wader 6 months and it's leaking in two places once again in the crotch area both places are seams of the wader....I really hope customer service steps up again and addresses this issue as I would like to fish as much as I possibly can in this prime fishing time of the year ....the wader is great...the durability is poor I give this wader 3 stars for comfort and convenience but poor hold up...

    Sonic waders - 5/4/2015
    By: from Teaneck, NJ

    First the fit: good fit but the belt sits below the waist. I am 5'7" Second the quality: good, although the soles have nobs on them that make them difficult to get into wading boots
