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.

    Super Sonic! - 10/13/2014
    By: from Modesto, CA

    These waders are the best I've owned, by far. Chosing the zipper version was a great decision, what an ease to get in and out! Also if you start to get a little hot, just unzip and you have instand cooling. Being 6'4 and 230, I chose the XL/Xlong and let me tell you the length was perfect. There is a little room in the legs for layering when necessary, and plenty of room at the top for an additional fleece on the colder days. Another feature of Orvis waders is you can order the booties in larger sizes, which really helps me as I have a size 14 foot. Other brands charge you extra of any modifications, but Orvis gives you the choice from the start. Workmanship is excellent, and attention to detail shows. I will recommend these waders to anyone I run into on the river.

    Orvis...of course. - 9/20/2014

    Having previously owned several Orvis waders, the Zipper Silver Sonic is the best so-far. The comfort of fit, and the peace of mind knowing that any leakage issues will not be the fault of the waders, make these a pleasure to wear.

    Great Summer Waders - 9/2/2014
    By: from Midwest Trout

    I bought these waders as a back up pair to my Sonic Guide Waders. I fish 2-5 days a week and in the Summer months the zipper front is great to unzip and cool off. The 4 zipper pockets work well for easy access of phone, fly boxes etc. when you go lite. I do wish they had a D ring on the back for your net. The big test will be this fall for Steelhead. The snap flap on the top works well for the Orvis clip zinger for my forceps.

    Great Wader's - 9/2/2014
    By: from Albuquerque,N.M.

    Got to use my new waders last month(August). Very nice fit. I bought the large and close to the end fit range and still fit good. The zippered pocket's were nice warm and protective of valuables. But the zippered front was most enjoyable. Aug. was very hot and I just left the front zipper undone so a cool Aug breeze flowed in and down through my waders keeping me very comfortable. I also like the travel bag for carrying them down to the river. I could carry it over my shoulder or easily in my backpack. Thank-you Orvis. I think I will enjoy these wader's for many season's to come. Rick

    Love the zipper! - 9/2/2014
    By: from Oklahoma

    Was always pretty weary about buying zippered waders, but these dudes are the real deal! Have had them chest high on 3 different trips(Ok,Ak,Co) so far & not a drop, plus the ease of "releaving" myself when needing to go. Super easy on/off, no need to ever be messing w shoulder straps. Love'm. A+. Thx Orvis!
