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.

    Probably the best waders I've ever had - 8/28/2014
    By: from North East England

    These zippered waders are my first pair with a zip. I've had multiple waders before, and Orvis have been the best. These are the best of the best. Much easier to get on and off than any others, comfortable, useful pockets. And they don't leak! Very very satisfied with these, and I shan't be looking anywhere else for waders in the future.

    As Expected!!! - 8/26/2014
    By: from North NJ

    Ease of shopping and delivery outstanding. Overall finish and detail at a high standard as expected from an Orvis product. Odd body shape (5" 10" with long torso and "shortish" legs/inseam) influenced decision to try an XL Short ---- Good sizing on the booties and leg length is very satisfying. Upper body section allows for AMPLE room and cold weather layering. Zipper feature a pleasure to get on and off comfortably. Chest area outer pockets a bonus for easy access. Overall very satisfied with the product.

    Nice wader - 8/19/2014
    By: from Pennsylvania

    This is my first pair of Orvis waders and so far they are the most comfortable I've owned. I hope they make it longer than the Simms g3 that only lasted me 15 months

    Great product - 8/8/2014

    Awesome product. The sizing was a little weird for for me. Turns out i am in-between sizes on the chart...who knew? Product is exactly as advertised. Good luck all and have a great fishing year!

    Best I've owned - 8/6/2014
    By: from Knoxville, Tn

    I've worn these several times now, and am very pleased. They are a pleasure to wear. The zipper is perfect for me and my small bladder. I love even keeping it open in the hot weather for some additional ventilation, yet the waders are extremely breathable. I haven't been hot in them yet while fishing mainly during mid-days in 90 degree East Tennessee weather. They are very lightweight. I love the fit in the boots also, with the stockings being cut specifically for the right/left foot. 3 of my buddies have waders from other makers. Theirs cost 2-3 times more. I love telling them how much these Orvis' cost. I love the fit also. I am 5'9" and got a large regular. The waders come comfortably up to my arm pits. My first pair of breathable waders(bought in the mid 1990s) was the least inexpensive pair Orvis had. And, they lasted for a good 10 years while being but to the test. I then went through 3 cheap pairs of other brands, all leaking after 1-3 uses. I am now an Orvis man. The company is a founder in fly fishing equipment and apparel, and a steward of the great outdoors. I have a Orvis reel now, and hope to eventually get one of their rods. I can't wait to put these waders on this weekend.
