Best Decision -
By: ErnieDianeO from Memphis, TN
New to fly fishing this year, I had a lot of gear to purchase. The Orvis Women's Silver Sonic Waders was one of the best decisions. Sturdy, well made, and a perfect fit... A stocking foot without all the excess....Now my feet fit nicely inside my boots. And I love that I can drop the bib so easily and stay cooler if I need to.
Great waders! -

Orvis is kidding when they claim they designed waders especially for women. These waders fit me better than any I've ever worn -- they actually look awesome. Great features, too, especially the waterproof inside pouch.
Great Choice -
These waders did exactly as described. Fit was good, they were comfortable and most of all they kept me dry!
Great Product - Worth the Buy -
By: pete6186 from North Idaho
I did much research before buying waders and purchased the Silver Sonic late spring this year. (I wanted to wear them enough before writing a review too). For those that have doubts like I did on sizing, it was worth it to go into an Orvis endorsed store and try a pair on. I've worn my Sonics so far in Alaska, Idaho and Oregon and am rather impressed with this product. Whether it's getting in and out of a boat, plane, or climbing over rocks to get to a fishing hole, the Sonics just WORK. They still look brand new with as much use as I've put them through. My size is 5' 4" / 145 / size 7.5 narrow feet and the Mediums fit well. After enough wear I do notice they are slightly long for me in the leg and torso, so I think a petite M size would have worked fine too. There is plenty of room/adjustability for layering and they are quick to get into - the elastic bands located under the armpit are a perfect thought to the design. The pockets are great and the waterproof pouch is tough, seals quickly, stays sealed yet remains easy to open. The drop down half works great in hot weather. These waders are very breathable / dry fast. Don't waste your time on buying another brand of waders.
Great Fit -

Silver Sonics have proven to be a great gift for the wife. They fit in all critical measurement points and offer dry feet and a lot more comfort than her previous pair. She says the put the fun back in fishing. The support provided by Customer Service in selecting the right size was invaluable.
comfortable waders!! -
By: GRmom from northern Wisconsin
Very happy with these waders. I am 5'2" and 115 pounds with longer legs and shorter torso. Although the small petite fit better around my torso, the shorter inseam would not work when I am in the squatting position so I opted for the regular small. Very comfortable, I like the convertible option. The neoprene socks have seams on the the sidesand do not rub. (The first waders I received had the left foot sewn incorrectly and was narrowed at the toe. I called and a new pair was sent out that day with overnight shipping.) The waterproof pocket is okay--a little bulky and difficult to open (particularly if you're trying to answer your phone, but is waterproof). Overall, I like these waders very much and they are a significant improvement over my previous men's shaped waders.
meets a tough challenge -
By: marfishes from syracuse, ny
I'm a regular size 5'5" 125lb with big feet - 9 1/2 and the only way I could get stocking feet big enough was to order med tall. I spent long time with "Buck" on chat on-line who re-assured me that this combo would work - and it does. They're beautiful waders, way better than my nascent flyfishing skills but I hope I grow to deserve them. Thanks, Buck!
Women's Silver Sonic Waders -
Just got back from 2 weeks of fly fishing in Colorado. I loved my new waders.
By: Geek from Michigan
I have worn the waders twice since I received them. They have kept me dry and are very flexible. Fit is perfect for a 5'2" woman.
