Women's Silver Sonic Convertible-Top Waders

These women's chest waders were specifically designed with the female angler in mind.


Over the years, the most common feedback we've received from female anglers is that we haven't offered any women's chest waders that were truly designed with women in mind. Until now. Introducing our new women's Silver Sonic Convertible-Top Waders. After taking input and suggestions from a large number of female anglers, we started over from scratch and designed a wader built specifically for women. We tested them on a wide variety of body types, made tweaks and adjustments, and we think the results speak for themselves. Never again will you have to borrow a pair of waders. We have your size.
  • Features the patented Orvis SonicSeam® technology
  • Constructed with a durable 4-layer nylon outer fabric
  • Innovative suspension system easily converts the waders to waist-highs without removing suspenders
  • Anatomically correct neoprene booties for additional comfort
  • Flip-out interior waterproof pocket with touchscreen capabilities for smartphones
  • Attached self-fabric gravel guards with quick-drain mesh panel

Picked by the Fly Fisherman editorial staff as one of the best new products for 2014.

    Solid set of waders - 4/6/2015
    By: from Plano, TX

    This is my first pair of waders, so I don't have much to compare them with. I've done both spring and winter fishing in them, and they breathe well. I've been happy with the fit; I'm petite, so I really appreciate the range of sizes these waders are available in. This was a solid purchase -and much thanks to the guys in Plano, Texas!

    Perfect for woman. - 3/27/2015
    By: from New Brunswick Canada

    This is the best waders that any woman should have. Why I was wearing ugly, bulky man's waders? They fit just right, the measures are good, except for the waist (my waist is 4 inch bigger than the chart) I ordered the size that I taught, according to the rest of the measurement. Of course I was afraid that it would be to tight on my waist line, but no, THEY FIT PERFECT. It took a while to receive them, so do not wait this summer to order. I FEEL SEXY IN THOSE WADERS, BELEIVE IT OR NOT. Can't wait to go fishing!

    Good- with some resevations - 1/15/2015

    Received these as a gift and haven't used them yet, but they appear very well made. Had to order the Medium Tall because of my large feet (size 10), which is giving me a little extra length. Neoprene feet don't seem to be made for a woman's foot as they are rather wide and a little sloppy.

    Bought these waders for my wife who always has to use rentals. Ordered online. True to form, Orvis has developed a great wader fitting for a women. She loves them and they fit her well, true to the size chart. It will be awhile for her to really break them in but they appear to be well made.

    Excellent! - 12/20/2014
    By: from Australia

    I've been fly fishing for over 15 yrs and this is the first wader I have had that fit. I am over 50 and not slim and terrific. It's nice to have a product that doesn't have a tiny waist and a huge butt. That is a problem I find a lot with women's clothing in general. I don't have a high waist so the pettite is great. If I get any heavier though I would need a 1x so I hope they make them for the ladies that are in the future. I haven't had them in the field yet but I will assume that they are a tough and reliable product as all ORVIS gear. If not I will let you all know. I'm pretty hard on waders. Finally, They only issue I have is shoe size. It seems that no one thinks women have large feet. My toes are actually rubbing on the ends and I hope they don't wear a hole in my toe or vice versa. Great Job Orvis! Thanks for taking we women anglers into serious consideration!

    Good waders - 12/17/2014
    By: from Arkansas

    I've had 3 pair other expensive waders. All leaked, all saturated over time. Yeah can treat with tech wash and revivex but never the same. These silver sonics fit great, don't leak at all, and are warm enough with proper layering. Time will tell on the saturating, but at this price point, I can afford to replace. I wade 300 days / year. I'm an orvis fan now. Good value, and awesome fit. I'm 5'2, 118 lbs, athletic. Smalls are perfect. Room for layers but not poofy or too baggy. Love the color. Love the length. Enough fabric to bend down on knee. Not too much, just right. Wish I had a hand warmer pocket. Don't care about the summer feature of dropping top down,
