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.
Finally...a really good wader! -

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! -

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 -

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.

The water does not come up between boots and the wader ?
Excellent waders -
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 ;)
