Silver Sonic Zippered Waders

Experience ultimate convenience and comfort on the water in our zip front waders.


Our most technologically advanced wader is now available as a zip front wader. Silver Sonic Zippered Waders feature a full-length front zipper and are made of the same lightweight and durable 4-layer nylon fabric as our original Pack and Travel waders. Constructed with the patented Orvis SonicSeam® sonic-weld technology, all thread and stitch holes have been eliminated, with seams double reinforced. The front zippered pocket is highly water resistant and an ideal storage place for fly boxes, while a flip-out front pocket can hold cameras or fishing licenses. Zippered hand warmer pockets keep fingers out of the cold, and can double as additional storage space. Self-fabric gravel guards with a quick-drain panel keep you moving. Strategically placed lower leg seams run up the back of the wader, reducing abrasion. Easy adjusting wader belt included. Zippered Waders in overcast/taupe. Outer shell: 100% nylon. Imported.

    Well Designed Waders - 1/11/2015
    By: from Yelm, WA

    These waders were a great holiday gift from my wife and I cannot say enough about them. I upgraded to these from a set of the G3 Simms Goretex waders and I must say it is quite the upgrade. The front zip makes in and out easy as well as answering nature's call. Like all waders they do need a good fleece liner when let's say winter steelheading, but all-in-all I am pleased. They are well constructed and highly breathable. The waders allow a great range of motion and the dry pocket on the inside is great for a phone, wallet or license. Great product!

    good quality and details - if they fit - 1/8/2015
    By: from Day, CA

    These zip front waders seem to be very good quality and a good price... the Zipper is a nice feature. But finding waders that fit in all dimensions can be a challenge for me (and I am not unusually proportioned). Had to turn these back in unused. None of the available sizes fit me - I tried them all...not the wader's fault. If Orvis could offer it in a wider range of inseam/boot combinations, guys like me would appreciate it a lot.

    Awesome Waders!!! - 1/5/2015
    By: from Minneapolis, MN

    I was a little worried at first because in the past Orvis Products have run a little big on me. I am 6 foot two 230 pounds. I called customer service and gave them my measurements they were right on the money when they said I would be fine with an XL. I got them and they are the best waiters I have ever purchased. Very lightweight and well constructed. I cannot wait to get into the water and get some use out of them.

    I almost could not tell a diffrence between these and other waders that doubled in price. I'll buy these again and again. Very comfortable light and easy to move in. Good job orvis.

    Great purchase - 12/12/2014
    By: from Washington

    My old waders finally gave out so I took to the net for several days of reading reviews and product tests of these particular waders. I was very hesitant to order online due to sizing, I spoke with an orvis rep and gave them my measurements and they assured me they would fit, and they sure did! Orvis definitely makes their waders true to size. only been out a few times with them so far but they are amazing...definitely would suggest them.

    Best I've owned - 12/7/2014
    By: from Georgia

    They are the most comfortable, practical, and well thought out waders I have ever owned. The quality is top notch. Zip them open when it's warm from hiking or when needed. They are easy to put on also. I will buy them again when they wear out.

    SS zippered waders - 11/29/2014
    By: from Nazareth, PA

    I only used these waders 1 time since I received them. I had some reservations about the zipper and pockets because they do stiffen the front of the waders but after they were on, I was able to fish with no problems. My only problem was sizing. I used the size chart but I had to return the first pair because they were to large.

    Good Waders! - 11/29/2014
    By: from Blue ridge mountains, NC

    These fit very well (my old waders didn't), they do not leak and they are still comfortable at the end of the day. Customer service in trying different sizes until I found the right size for a short, fat man was excellent. I recommend them.
