Silver Sonic Zippered Waders

Experience ultimate convenience and comfort on the water in our zip front waders.


Our most technologically advanced wader is now available as a zip front wader. Silver Sonic Zippered Waders feature a full-length front zipper and are made of the same lightweight and durable 4-layer nylon fabric as our original Pack and Travel waders. Constructed with the patented Orvis SonicSeam® sonic-weld technology, all thread and stitch holes have been eliminated, with seams double reinforced. The front zippered pocket is highly water resistant and an ideal storage place for fly boxes, while a flip-out front pocket can hold cameras or fishing licenses. Zippered hand warmer pockets keep fingers out of the cold, and can double as additional storage space. Self-fabric gravel guards with a quick-drain panel keep you moving. Strategically placed lower leg seams run up the back of the wader, reducing abrasion. Easy adjusting wader belt included. In overcast/taupe. Outer shell: 100% nylon. Imported.

    looked at all zipper type waders and end up buying Silver sonic model. the fit was what I was after meanly in the boots . I have a size 12 1/2 foot and the boots fit was excellent with room for my winter sox's. Orvis comes through again as with all there products.

    This is not my first pair of waders but they are my first Orvis waders. I am not easy to fit but I stepped into a perfect fit the first time. I fished these today for the first time and what a great experience. This has changed my entire outlook on fishing. Thanks Orvis!

    well I have not had the chance to get them out on the river YET IT WILL BE SOON. But what I can say is I have looked around a lot for waders checked them all out I'm a short man and a big man not easy to find waders that you can just order and fit but I got the XXL short and they fit perfect inseam sock boots everything nice fit and very comfortable I would just like to say THANK YOU ORVIS for thinking about the short big guys out hear.

    The sonic difference! - 5/23/2014
    By: from Natchez ms

    I'm an Orvis fan, it's true. But,. I say it's about time they offered a better solution to the stitched waders of the past. The Silver Sonic waders are the very best Orvis waders I've owned over the last 12 years and I have 3 others, 2 that leak. As for the fit, well they're waders and i can't complain. Mine are LS and are a little big but I'll be glad they are this winter. Thanks Orvis!

    Zippered Waders - 5/4/2014
    By: from Roswell, GA

    Bought the waders about 6 months ago and have used them about 8 times. The waders are terrific, but I should have ordered one size smaller (large rather than extra large). The booties are too big and bunch up in my wading boots. After walking and wading all day, I have gotten a blister or two on a couple of occasions. My fault though - next time I will try on with my boots before I purchase.

    I bought the waders after Orvis' 2-day flyfishing school, gearing up for a new passion. Excellent feel and fit. As a tradesman, I appreciate good tools, Orvis' delivers on quality.

    Excellent waders - 4/15/2014

    My last pair of Orvis (the old bootfoot hiking waders) finally gave up after 11 seasons so I picked up a pair of Silver Sonic Zippered for my recent trip to the Spey in Scotland. I am very impressed. The fit (thanks to a very prompt and accurate answer to a sizing query to Orvis UK) is very comfortable in both the leg and chest department . The chest pockets take fly boxes and the few other sundries required by a roving salmon rod without leaving great bulges, and all the zips worked perfectly. The neoprene feet leave plenty of room for my size 11s (my waders are large/long). Am loving the front zip as it makes life so much easier when taking them on/off and when making a comfort stop in the bushes! I would say Orvis are doing us a great favour by selling such high quality waders at a lot less than some of their competitors - you know who they are ;)
