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.

    Nice wader - 8/19/2014

    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

    Great product - 8/8/2014

    Awesome product. The sizing was a little weird for for me. Turns out i am in-between sizes on the chart...who knew? Product is exactly as advertised. Good luck all and have a great fishing year!

    Best I've owned - 8/6/2014

    I've worn these several times now, and am very pleased. They are a pleasure to wear. The zipper is perfect for me and my small bladder. I love even keeping it open in the hot weather for some additional ventilation, yet the waders are extremely breathable. I haven't been hot in them yet while fishing mainly during mid-days in 90 degree East Tennessee weather. They are very lightweight. I love the fit in the boots also, with the stockings being cut specifically for the right/left foot. 3 of my buddies have waders from other makers. Theirs cost 2-3 times more. I love telling them how much these Orvis' cost. I love the fit also. I am 5'9" and got a large regular. The waders come comfortably up to my arm pits. My first pair of breathable waders(bought in the mid 1990s) was the least inexpensive pair Orvis had. And, they lasted for a good 10 years while being but to the test. I then went through 3 cheap pairs of other brands, all leaking after 1-3 uses. I am now an Orvis man. The company is a founder in fly fishing equipment and apparel, and a steward of the great outdoors. I have a Orvis reel now, and hope to eventually get one of their rods. I can't wait to put these waders on this weekend.

    By: from Stockton, ca

    looked at all zipper type waders and end up buying Silver sonic model. the fit was what I was after meanly in the boots . I have a size 12 1/2 foot and the boots fit was excellent with room for my winter sox's. Orvis comes through again as with all there products.

    Finally...a really good wader! - 6/18/2014
    By: from Colorado Rockies

    This is not my first pair of waders but they are my first Orvis waders. I am not easy to fit but I stepped into a perfect fit the first time. I fished these today for the first time and what a great experience. This has changed my entire outlook on fishing. Thanks Orvis!
