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.

    Great Summer Waders - 9/2/2014
    By: from Midwest Trout

    I bought these waders as a back up pair to my Sonic Guide Waders. I fish 2-5 days a week and in the Summer months the zipper front is great to unzip and cool off. The 4 zipper pockets work well for easy access of phone, fly boxes etc. when you go lite. I do wish they had a D ring on the back for your net. The big test will be this fall for Steelhead. The snap flap on the top works well for the Orvis clip zinger for my forceps.

    Great Wader's - 9/2/2014
    By: from Albuquerque,N.M.

    Got to use my new waders last month(August). Very nice fit. I bought the large and close to the end fit range and still fit good. The zippered pocket's were nice warm and protective of valuables. But the zippered front was most enjoyable. Aug. was very hot and I just left the front zipper undone so a cool Aug breeze flowed in and down through my waders keeping me very comfortable. I also like the travel bag for carrying them down to the river. I could carry it over my shoulder or easily in my backpack. Thank-you Orvis. I think I will enjoy these wader's for many season's to come. Rick

    Love the zipper! - 9/2/2014
    By: from Oklahoma

    Was always pretty weary about buying zippered waders, but these dudes are the real deal! Have had them chest high on 3 different trips(Ok,Ak,Co) so far & not a drop, plus the ease of "releaving" myself when needing to go. Super easy on/off, no need to ever be messing w shoulder straps. Love'm. A+. Thx Orvis!

    Probably the best waders I've ever had - 8/28/2014
    By: from North East England

    These zippered waders are my first pair with a zip. I've had multiple waders before, and Orvis have been the best. These are the best of the best. Much easier to get on and off than any others, comfortable, useful pockets. And they don't leak! Very very satisfied with these, and I shan't be looking anywhere else for waders in the future.

    As Expected!!! - 8/26/2014
    By: from North NJ

    Ease of shopping and delivery outstanding. Overall finish and detail at a high standard as expected from an Orvis product. Odd body shape (5" 10" with long torso and "shortish" legs/inseam) influenced decision to try an XL Short ---- Good sizing on the booties and leg length is very satisfying. Upper body section allows for AMPLE room and cold weather layering. Zipper feature a pleasure to get on and off comfortably. Chest area outer pockets a bonus for easy access. Overall very satisfied with the product.

    Nice wader - 8/19/2014
    By: from Pennsylvania

    This is my first pair of Orvis waders and so far they are the most comfortable I've owned. I hope they make it longer than the Simms g3 that only lasted me 15 months
