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 -

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!

Just got back from 2 weeks of fly fishing in Colorado. I loved my new waders.

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.
Too short waisted -
By: Tibet from Northern New Mexico
My only gripe is that I'm amazed that amongst the many women that participated in the creation of these waders there wasn't a long-waisted woman in the group?!?!? The simple addition of a second set of belt loops would have addressed this issue. I can't use the existing loops - too low. I haven't yet water-tested these but I'm sure they will be fine. Lovely, really. (5'7"; 145; Med fits great)
Silver Sonic fabulous! -
By: Idaprefertobefishing from Lubbock, Tx.
I have always used hip waders that feel sluggish and wear me down so my husband purchased the Silver Sonic chest waders for me as a gift. I'm 5'4" tall so he purchased a petite length. We easily exchanged them for a regular length and they fit perfectly. They feel wonderful and appear to be of excellent quality. I love the shoulder strap adjustments and the bib zipper pocket. I didn't use the removable waterproof pouch. I paired the Silver Sonic chest waders with the very light weight Orvis Encounter men's boots. I love the combination. I may never wear my heavy hip waders again. I was able to spend six full days in a row walking in the river and up and down muddy mountains. I can't wait to go again. If you order the Encounter men's boots with the chest waders, order a half size larger in men's then you normally wear in a women's walking shoe and they will fit perfectly with a thick pair of socks. I love, love, love this combination!
Incredible fit! -
By: NCFishinChic from Western NC
I am 5.2 105 lbs and you can imagine how ridiculous I looked in traditional waders. The fit of the xs petite is just right., like it was made for me. It fits in exactly the right places. I had to try a small in the store and the difference between this and the small (which I was drowning in) is significant. The measurements are very precise so be sure to check before ordering.
