Silver Sonic Guide Wader

Outfit yourself in the very best fly-fishing waders made.


The newest member of the Silver Sonic Wader family is also the toughest and best fly-fishing wader made. Built for the demanding rigors of full-time fishing, the Silver Sonic Guide Waders are designed to keep you dry and last longer than your last three pairs of waders combined. Highly breathable and ultradurable, the Silver Sonic Guides are up to 300% more abrasion resistant and 40% more puncture resistant than the Silver Sonic Convertible Tops. The lower wader features a high-density four-layer breathable nylon, while the upper is the same four-layer nylon used in the Convertible Top lowers. Kangaroo-style handwarmer pocket with YKK water-resistant zippers. External storage pocket with tool dock. Y-style padded yoke suspenders. Flip-out interior pocket and removable waterproof pocket. Attached self-fabric, reinforced gravel guards with quick-drain panel. Anatomically correct, sculpted neoprene booties. Strategically placed lower leg seams run up the back of the wader, reducing abrasion. Easy-adjusting wading belt included. In overcast/taupe. Expanded sizes, now including extra long. Outer shell: 100% nylon. Imported.

    Wader/water proof snowboard pants - 1/11/2015
    By: from SE MN

    Today is January 11 2015....the high was about 15-16 F here in SE MN and I decided to take my first test run in my new silver sonic guide series wader. With 1 pair of wool socks and some poly/nylon long underwear I felt as comfortable as being out in my snow pants snowboarding. Unbelievable as I was in and out of knee high water most of the day. I'll admit the 1st step into the water at those kinds of temperatures is a bit intimidating when your 30 min. hike from the car. Didn't even phase these waders.... Came out dry and warm. Even though I got skunked today, I felt like the day was success because I didn't freeze and stayed dry as a bone. These waders are tough as nails...

    Great Waders - 12/4/2014
    By: from Black Mountain, NC

    Having recently attended an Orvis fishing school, and having my 20% discount card in hand, I decided to invest in new waders. (I've been wearing Simms Drifts.) The Sonic Guides seemed just the thing. I went to the local Orvis store, tried on mediums, and ordered medium-short. I got them in a few days, found them to be too short, and returned them to the shop to exchange them for the original mediums. The Orvis staff was exceptionally professional and helpful through all of this. I wore them in the Davidson River Sunday afternoon and found them to be exceptionally fine waders--comfortable and breathable, tough but easy to get on. I couldn't be more pleased!

    Great Wader - 11/26/2014
    By: from ST. Louis, MO

    Wader is comfortable and easy to slip on and off. Straps are easy to adjust with plenty of pockets including one that is waterproof. Easy to store and pack. Really looks sharp. Expect a lot of compliments.

    On the right track - 11/10/2014
    By: from Lexington, KY

    I have been through several different pairs of waders from Orvis and absolutely no doubt these are on the right track. Currently I will be taking these back into the store to get a 2nd pair after booth the left knee and the groin region seam starting to split. Wasn't to happy to drive and hike all the way out to my spot to be limited to knee high wading due to the large split at the seam. Like I've said absolutely on the write track and have full faith in orvis that they will do everything to fix this!
