Silver Sonic's are bombproof -
By: Dave8298 from Cody, WY
Purchased a pair of Silver Sonic Guide waders to replace my old Orvis waders. After using 4 months can safely say they are the most comfortable (and so far indestructible) waders I've ever worn. Easy to move in, breathe well and overall comfort/fit great. Use them 1-2 times/week on local waters.
Very good purchase -

I am a long time(1978) Orvis customer and fly fisherman. This is my third set of Orvis waders within the last four years. The previous sonic travel waders have not held up well. The Orvis Guarantee and commitment is terrific. I was able to return my old defective waders for a new set of guide waders. The quality and design is ten times better than the old travel waders. I especially like the built in zip lock water proof pocket for my cell phone and license. Looking forward to many years of enjoyment. Thank you Orvis for standing behind your products. I will always be a lifelong customer.
Dry, Comfortable, Durable -

I recently spent 8 days flyfishing in north central PA. I wore these waders every day for 8- 10 hours. I fished both large and small streams and walked a great deal, including through some dense brush. I even spent a day float stocking Kettle Creek - not an easy job. I stayed dry and comfortable, and I found the waders to be durable. I expect a long life from these waders. They are flexible and permit a wide range of motion. I have worn three pairs of 'S's' waders which I liked very much. These are as good or better. All they need is 'Made in USA' to make them perfect.
Perfect waders -
By: WishMeFish from Between the Esopus and the Farmington.
The booties in my old waders gave out on the river, so I stopped in the local fly shop and picked up Simms G3 waders. They fit ok in the shop, but bunched up behind the knee in the water. The G4 in a different size didn't allow full range of motion and were very heavy-duty. I stopped in the Orvis store in Avon Ct and was immediately sized correctly. These waders fit great, the booties are a little large though. These waders have all of the features that I liked in the high-end Simms, but they are considerably lighter. In many cases I prefer the features of the Orvis. I could not be more pleased with these waders. Good bunch of guys in the shop too. Pros - Full wader material behind the handwarmer pocket - D-loop for net - Very adjustable suspenders - well designed flip out pocket - waterproof pocket can be placed where you want it - fit great - not too heavy - Fish zipper pulls!
Almost Perfect Waders -
By: onthefly1 from Plano, TX
Over the years I have always worn Orvis Guide Waders. I was surprised by the fitting of the waders. I ended up trying on four different sizes until we nailed the fit. When purchasing these waders take your time and get the proper size. There are so many variation that you can get pretty close to custom. The only feature of the waders that I question is the neoprene booties that rachet up the heel of the foot resulting in a rippling effect while putting on the wading boots. It's worth mentioning the outstanding customer service that I received during the sizing of the waders; nice, knowledgeable staff.
Great Job -

Best wadders ever -
By: Mattroy336 from Bathurst, NB Canada
These are my second pair of Orvis wadders. My Endura wadders have served me very well. but the Silver Sonic Guide Wadders will be with me for a long time to come. I am on the rivers of Eastern Canada every chance i get. the features these wadders have are awesome! They are in my mind the best wadders out there!
Wow, what a wader -
By: Steelhead56 from Boise, Idaho
Wore these waders for one week in the toughest of conditions. Climbing over rocks, fences, and in and out of drift boats. These waders are very comfortable and durable. Best part, they do not leak. Thank you Orvis for re-inventing the wheel at an affordable price!
great replacement -
By: oklettersandnumbers1 from richland center wisconsin
my Orvis guide wear waders from 8 years ago finally started leaking. slowly, the articulated knees and in the crotch were allowing moisture through. hope the new ones last as long. website says check for holes with alcohol, no luck. I am not wasting anymore jameson on leak detection.
