    Hands down, Orvis has the best products for fishing, salt and fresh, of any suppliers. I need a new pair of waders and hope I win. But, come to think of it, there may be someone out there needing them worse than me.

    As a full time guide on the Salmon River in Pulaski, NY, The only waders that can survive the abuse of 200+ days on the water have been my Orvis Pro Guides!
    Believe me, Orvis waders are tough!!

    This weekend he work neoprene hunting waders. I wore hand-me-down Orvis waders from a world class Telluride shop. We both had wet legs. #silversonic. Please and Thank you. PS: he landed a 21″ 4.25 rainbow. He was so excited he got me up at 5:00 am the next day to do it again. Just to think…he is just a duck hunter.

    Interested to see how this SonicSeam holds up. I’ve been through 2 sets of waders in the last couple years fishing 8-10 times a month. The seams have always been the culprit requiring seamseal within just a few uses. Hopefully Orvis has cured this without having to spend a complete fortune for ‘Guide’ Waders..

    I have had Orvis Waders for the last 25 years. Finally, my last pair of pro guide are leaking in the foot. Although, I cannot complain because I have used them vary hard over the last 10 years or so. I think the Silver Sonics would probably last me the rest of my life. What a sweet thought that I could leave them for my son and there would be plenty of life left in them. Thank you Orvis for all of the great memories using all of your products.

    My first generation Silver Sonics are still doing well, aside from the pocket unraveling and the inside lining in the seat getting chafed by the hook part of the Velcro closures on my pants. Sometimes I wonder about compression leaks in the booties, but that might be only condensation.
