Great set of waders -
After shopping around I selected these for my first set of waders. They look great, and are very comfortable to wear. I am 6'2'' with a size 12 shoe, and the large fit perfect They also pack very small which is a big plus for me.

Had been considering a new pair of waders for a while now - then I tore my old pair a few weeks back while climibing over a guardrail. The silver sonics had been recommended to me by a friend, so I checked them out. Went to my local Orvis store and tried a pair on. After trying a few pairs on, we realized that I would likely need a L, XLong (I'm 6'4", 230#) - which unfortunatley they did not have in stock - so the salesman proceeded to order a pair online for me, after assuring me that I could return them if the fit was not right. The waders arrived a few days later at my house - and I was eager to test them out. After wearing them for a weekend of fishing, I can say that these waders are great! They are very comfortable and easy to get on/off. The belt/suspenders are easy to adjust. The convertible tops are great, and will be nice to have on those warmer days when wading shallower water. I really appreciate the storage pockets in these waders - especially the waterproof one that I can store my cell phone, carkey fob, etc. in. There is enough storage that, if I wear a lanyard, I can easily fit everything to fish for a day. The only criticism that I would have is that the booties are a bit long (seem to be sized for a much larger boot than mine). Overall these waders represent great value and I couldn't be happier with them!
good design bad quality -

like the waders a lot, really like the convertible top. But in less than a year have already had to patch twice, thought these waders would be a tougher
beat the heat -
By: WItroutHunter from Wisconsin streams
I just got these and forced myself to where them even though it was 75 degrees and would have felt better wet wading. I wanted to test them out in the heat and for walking fairly far to get ready for a trip to Yellowstone. I was impressed with how comfortable I stayed. I'm a skeptic of "breathable waterproof" products, but these waders really seemed to hold true to that claim. They are also extremely light and the ability to convert to waist high option is a huge plus in hot weather.
WOW !!!!!!!!!! -

After years of searching finally a great pair of waders. Have only had for a short time but so far I love. They are everything one could want.
Great waders! -
Although these were my first waders, I would still recommend these to anyone. I had them for 3 years almost and never had any issue with them. I fished in them pretty hard using them at least 25 times each season and they worked without fail. They finally failed this past weekend when I was walking out of the river just after it became pitch black dark outside and I fell into a rock and ripped the thigh. I will gladly be purchasing and brand new pair of these exact waders if my patching doesn't hold up.
Perfection Personified -

Extremely well made and a perfect fit. The new booties trim and form fit make for a longer day on the water, reducing fatigue and better fit in my wading boots. Add the strap design that allows them to be worn at the waist on a hot day and you are sure to catch more fish.
Great Replacement -
By: LRGMT from Billings, MT
I purchased these waders to replace a pair that I had for 20 plus years. I had some concerns and questions about these waders but the Orvis chat cleared all those up. Love the waterproof pouch on the waders and the big zipper pouch on the outside. The convertible top works great and is very easy to convert. The only thing I would like to see would be a D ring on the back for a net.
Quality Waders -
By: ElMundo from Northern California
Bought online, sizing was good and the size chart definitely helped. The built in neoprene foot socks are a large but were not uncomfortable in my felt boots. Waders were very comfortable, used for a 3 day fishing weekend and got all weather, cool, overcast, rain and sunny and warm. Best part was that the waders did not heat up into a sweat box during a sunny afternoon. If the neoprene booties fit better they would rate five stars.
