Pack & Travel Waders with SonicSeam Technology

Our breathable chest waders offer seamless performance and easy packing.

Details

At just 2 lbs. 6 oz. in size large, Pack & Travel waders pack down, pack in, and provide great comfort—the perfect waders for backcountry fishing, travel, warm-weather, and low-water fishing. The waders are 30% lighter than Pro Guide™ waders. Both models are super lightweight, flexible, and comfortable, yet rugged; and pack down to save space and weight for long trips and floatplane weight limits. A groundbreaking, patented, and exclusive sonic-welded seam technology eliminates threads that can wear out and stitch holes that, over time, can eventually leak. Leg seams run up the back of the wader to further reduce abrasion. A special four-layer breathable, waterproof fabric keeps you dry and comfortable. Detachable suspenders on the chest waders make for easy quick conversion to waist-high waders in a pinch. Both come with an easy-snap, adjustable belt. In overcast. Outer shell: 100% nylon. Imported.

    Worth Every Penny - 10/6/2013
    By: from Southeast

    I bought these as a birthday present for myself online and was curious as to the durability and quality of the waders. I was impressed immediately out of the box with them. The seams are awesome (or lack of seams) and they are super lightweight and comfortable. As an added bonus you can roll them up into a tiny bundle and put them into carrying bag that comes with them. I plan on sneaking these onto our next group fly fishing trip and act as if I forgot my waders at home and then out of nowhere pull these like a rabbit from a hat, Alakazam! I'm used to having super heavy waders that are difficult getting in and out of- these are not those type of waders! I will be wearing these for years to come, Thank you Orvis!!

    top notch - 10/4/2013
    By: from Ontario, Canada

    I needed something light enough to easily transport by air. These waders fit the bill perfectly. They're light, pack small and easy to wear. My only problem is that the boot size incrementally increases with the overall size of the wader. My simple fix was to use a size10 felt liner in the size 12 wader (my foot is a size 10).

    lite weight wader - 10/2/2013
    By: from hampton, nh

    Would have given this product a 4.5 if able too. great product used for a 3 day trip on the conn. river in nh. Only draw back is suspenders are made of Velcro and they do not seem like they are going to stand up to more than a few more trips before they will no longer stick to themselves..... but I was dry and comfortable

    Awesome Waders - 10/1/2013
    By: from Michigan

    Lightweight, comfortable. Only issue was with the suspenders, but after reading other reviews, I bought the replacement suspenders from Orvis and have been very happy.

    Comfortable - 9/28/2013
    By: from Washington

    Lightweight and comfortable waders. Suspenders are just OK but I used a set from my Pro Guide waders and that worked great. They fold down nicely for waist high waders. All my waders that have leaked in the past leaked int the seams, so I expect these will hold up better and longer.

    Better Than The $$ - 9/24/2013
    By: from Greenville, SC

    X-Large was just what the sizing chart recommended and it fits well. Just big enough to get some layers under it. Bag is handy and not hard to get waders in. They are very light weight in comparison to even the neoprene waders they are replacing. Would purchase again

    I never knew waders could be this comfortable. - 9/24/2013
    By: from Madrid, Spain

    I've been fishing for 50 years but unfortunately hadn't bothered to get new waders since I got neoprenes about 20-25 years ago. I had no idea that a pair of waders could be so comfortable as well practical for packing. I am very glad I took advantage of these having gone on sale and would recommend them to anyone.

    Good Wader - 9/23/2013
    By: from St. John's, NL

    I bought these waders because I wanted something lighter. The salmon hole I fish is down over a 45 degree hill for about a mile. So walking up over that through the woods on a mid summer days heat is exhausting. Add rubber chest waders and I might as well be in a sauna. So I needed something light, breathable and overall easy to wear. These are amazing! They're like wind breakers almost. I can wear them down the hill without even getting warm, but because they're so small and light, I just put them in their pouch and carry them on the side of my rod. It's amazing how light they are!

Sonic (Welded) Seam Wader

As a year round fly fishing guide, waders are a necessary part of my gear. Although I would much rather wet wade or jump into the boat with just a pair of sandals on, it would be impossible to make it through late fall, winter, or early spring without a quality pair of chest waders.

The New Sonic Seam waders were sent to my shop to test in January. The first thing I noticed was that the box was so light it didn’t feel like there was even a pair of waders in it! Everyone who picked up the waders was impressed with their extreme light weight. I’m not a fan of thick, bulky, heavy-duty waders so these were a welcome addition to my gear. They have been perfect for fishing in warm weather or in the drift boat on a rainy day summer or winter!

These waders are a must for the traveling or backpacking fishermen! They pack down like a pair of jeans and you will barely notice the weight. The super soft neoprene booties will be the most comfortable you have ever worn! You will barely even notice where the seams are located on these waders and will not experience leakage like you do along seams of standard waders. Join the trend and go light this season. You will be glad you did!
