Women's Silver Sonic Convertible-Top Waders

These women's chest waders were specifically designed with the female angler in mind.


Over the years, the most common feedback we've received from female anglers is that we haven't offered any women's chest waders that were truly designed with women in mind. Until now. Introducing our new women's Silver Sonic Convertible-Top Waders. After taking input and suggestions from a large number of female anglers, we started over from scratch and designed a wader built specifically for women. We tested them on a wide variety of body types, made tweaks and adjustments, and we think the results speak for themselves. Never again will you have to borrow a pair of waders. We have your size.
  • Features the patented Orvis SonicSeam® technology
  • Constructed with a durable 4-layer nylon outer fabric
  • Innovative suspension system easily converts the waders to waist-highs without removing suspenders
  • Anatomically correct neoprene booties for additional comfort
  • Flip-out interior waterproof pocket with touchscreen capabilities for smartphones
  • Attached self-fabric gravel guards with quick-drain mesh panel

    meets a tough challenge - 8/13/2014
    By: 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!

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

    Waders - 8/6/2014

    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 - 7/25/2014
    By: 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! - 7/20/2014
    By: 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! - 7/19/2014
    By: 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.

    Waders for a Woman - 7/15/2014
    By: from Columbus, OH

    Love these waders! Took them out for the first time a few days ago and they worked wonderful. They were breathable, easy to move in and the convertible-top is very nice. I was worried about the fit since I am a bit curvy but there was no issue. The only downside is that being busty I am not able to use both the chest pocket and removable water pouch as it makes the front bulky.

    Love these Waders - 7/15/2014
    By: from Baton Rouge, LA

    We have a store here in Baton Rouge. The lady helped measure me and we also spoke to the company to make sure I was getting the right size. Shipped to my home. Near Perfect fit. The booties are not too big and the adjustable straps are great. Only problem I have is locking the water-tight pocket.
