This year’s new Silver Sonic Convertible Top Waders have been a big hit all season long. (Don’t take my word for it: Click here to read customer reviews.) But some folks have wondered when the zippered version will be available.
We’re happy to announce that the Silver Sonic Zip Waders will be available online next week! Featuring the best waterproof zipper technology available, these wader are easy to put on and take off, and they come in handy when you need to see a man about a horse.
To celebrate, we are giving away a pair of Silver Sonic Zip waders to one random commenter here on Orvis News. From now until September 1st, just leave a comment on any poston either the Fly Fishing or Conservation pagesand we’ll choose one random winner on Monday the 2nd.

Looks like a great set of waders.
ooooo!!! nice 😀 can always use a pair of waders!
Great Scott!!!! I’m in.
Looks great! I want one! I’m sure theey are great when i paddle as well 🙂
Hmm… Random comment? Can I have them please?
May not catch any fish, but at least I would look good in those waders.
These waders wake those trips to the bank a bit shorter. Older guides appreciate this even more.
Just in time to replace my old waders!
Looks like the perfect set , for my first pair of waders
Looks fine. I just need a new one.
Silver Sonic Convertible ZIP waders! Yes! Awesome for use by us in the Land of 10,000 Lakes!
After years of disappointment with breathable waders, including alleged guide models, I was so well treated by the SonicSeam packables (except by the flimsy inner pouch) that I snapped up another pair over the weekend’s half-price sale as a backup. With the welded technology even more matured, these zip waders look very promising.
Great looking waders!
Looks like a great pair of waders. Be happy to win a pair, and add them to my line of Orvis rods, reels and lines.
I could use a new pair!
I would love to own a top quality set of Orvis silver sonic zip waders
I’ve been waiting for these, I’m sure they will be my next purchase for waders.
Solid design. I’d love to have a pair of these!
The new waders are looking great! Looking forward to the reviews.
been in the market for new waders since mine started leaking after 2 years of use. i keep scouring around for the best deal and i keep coming back to the Orvis Silver Sonics. plus it helps that by buying from them im supporting another great Vermont based business.
I already own a pair of SilverSonic Convertables. Hands down the best bang for your buck out there in waders right now. Would love to try out the new Zip series!
They look Zipsontastic.
I will never urinate the same again. These waders are rad with a side of awesome!
Zippididoodah! good idea!! rigth this way please.
They look very nice indeed! As I’m just getting into river fly fishing these would be very welcomed. 🙂
Those will work great with my Orvis side zip boots!
That zipper will come in handy for those of us 50 or older!
They look great. Can’t wait to get a pair wet!
Well Zip A Dee Doo Dah!!!
I bought my silver sonics last fall and have really enjoyed them wading with them this year. A pair with zippers would be great for the winter.
fall fishing on the Mad in VT will feel much better with these waders……
Just getting back into fly fishing after several years away from the sport. Forgot how much I love the experience. I would love to own a pair of the new Silver Sonic Zip Waders! Thanks for the opportunity.
Nice looking waders, would like to try them out on the Bow River!
Look like an awesome set of waders! I could use a new pair for some winter trout fishing down here in Texas.
Just had our first introductory class over the weekend. The husband and I both loved it. We will be needing some good waders… And everything else! We are very excited to get started.
I Want, hope i can win!
Thanks for the great videos, tips and fly tying information.
These Silver Sonic Zip Waders look amazing! I am in great need of a new pair and this would be so awesome if I won these.
Would you ship to Norway if I won? haha but it would probably not be a problem, i never win ;D
Geeeze, I should have held out a bit longer. I love my silver sonic waders but the zipper version would be great to wear.. plus more pockets are cool too.
Could certainly use a new pair of fancy waders like these!
When you get to be my age, a zipper can make all the difference!!
Great pair of waders just made better!
These are coming out at the perfect time! As my last set of waders barely made it through the summer fishing season! Looking forward to trying out a pair!
Please, let it be me!
I love a pair of these! It would be great for both trout and salmon fishing here in Norway!
Those sure would go well with my Orvis Rod and Reel —-ORVIS ROCKS!!!
Already own a pair and they are truly awesome!
Love the new waders!
They look awesome! I’d love to get a pair.
They would be a nice upgrade to my old pro guide 3 waders. However, I am disappointed to see that they don’t have neoprene gravel guards.
Love Orvis products! Just retired my last pair of Orvis waders… after 16 years!
Send a pair to Hank Patterson — he seems to have some issues with emergency wader removal while fishing.
They look great
Nice they look very sweet*
These look great. My first breathable waders were from Orvis. Loved them. Very comfortable.
I could use some waders.
Wish I had one of these!
Nice! I could use new waders, and they look like great ones.
The new zip sonics would be great for fall fishing up here in Alaska. Great place to give them a workout.
Great looking waders. Would like to give them a stream test.
Looks like a great pair of waders. Would be great to try them out in Montana next month!
would love me a pair to go with my new orvis boots i just got!
I can’t say enough how these would have come in handy when having to drain the pipes.
A great looking pair of waders. A great innovation in the ORVIS line.
I would love to own a pair of Silver Sonic Zip Waders!
The Silver Sonic waders have been a mainstay of my gear for years, and these look a useful upgrade. Quicker in and out means more time in the river and less on the tailgate of my SUV.
Zipper waders will these by my first pair of waders that will last longer than 1 year of use…??
I NEED those!
Talk about perfect timing!!! I had a cheep, no-name pair of waders and they died after only a handful of uses… I could really use a pair of these!! Thank you for the opportunity to win, Orvis!
I spent the weekend in my SiverSonics. They were great. The fishing? Not so much. I wish the local fishing reports would have mentioned that there was a canoe race on the Lower Au Sable River (Mio, Michigan) this weekend. Although, truth be told, the racers were fun to watch. They are athletes, and efficient ones at that. It was the cheering crowds and the flotilla of “recreational” canoeists that followed the racers who made the trout skiddish.
Looking forward to reviews of the new SilverSonics.
They look awesome! Would love to replace my old waders with these.
Just in time for Great Lakes Steelhead season!!
I’ve been waiting for these for a long time!
I think these are real nice!. Hope they are giving away a WOMEN’S size this time (wink).
Thanks, Tammy S
These would be great for Steelead season right around the corner.
I would love to try a pair of these!
Silver Sonic Convertible Top Waders are just what I need for the Pecos Wilderness in New Mexico
Raising six kids money is always tight. So quality is important and these look like they would fit the bill. Would love to field test them on Penns Creek.
About time I got in to a new pair of chesties…
Sure would like to win.
Love my current Orvis sonic waders, but the zipper version would be awesome! Crossing my fingers…
Gotta get me some of these!
Looks like a great design and investment. Need new pair ASAP!
Looks like a nice feature set!
Wow, count me in!
I need me a pair of these!
Look fantastic and would be perfect for my next trip to Patagonia … fingers crossed!!!
I have been in the market for new waders for a couple of years and I am at that ager when nature calls more often. I think the zippered waders may be the answer and would make the process a whole lot easier..These look really nice and would probably do the job perfectly..
me me me
Hello! Maybe this is the lucky comment? The Waders would look great on me wearing it fly fishing in river Isar directly in Munich!
Great looking product. Pleased with all things orvis that I own. My faithful endura waders are finally on their last leg. Srung a leak in both feet last weekend. Wouldn’t mind these as a replacement.
These things look awesome. These waders would be perfect for a broke college student like me trying to replace my current raggy waders and still be able to afford some new boots!
Great set of waders, would love the zip ones!
I love to wear my first Orvis Zipper Waders. Thanks for the opportunity.
They look great, would love to try them.
Now I can have that second cup of coffee in the morning
looks like a great wader !
I love to wear my first zipper wader from Orvis, thanks for the opportunity.
Would love a pair of these, so I could stop borrowing my Dads.
Very nice – though I find Orvis not to be very kind to Canadian customers re shipping charges.
Orvis, such a perfect brand who makes the perfect items for fly fishing! I could use a new pair!
I could use one
Would love to own a pair of these! Great looking waders!
Perfect timing for this contest. Thank you so much
Orvis, the company makes the best quality products. I sure could use a new pair!
These waders would be very nice to own!
Orvis. Quality. Would love to wear a pair, especially because my old waders aren’t keeping me dry anymore…
Those look great!
These look like they would get a lot of use in my household… Cant wait to review them. 🙂
Could these be the waders that force me to switch from Simms? Only one way to know!!
An awesome product just got better!
Long past due & I certainly will appreciate that feature:)
Sweet, just in time for Atlantic Salmon season!! Great looking waders!!
I’m getting sick of fishing from a canoe, time to wade silver sonically
My current waders are leaking badly and I could really use a new pair for the upcoming fall salmon season.
How great will it be to have the ability to unzip on the stream!
I’ve just returned my current (leaking) waders (not Orvis) to my dealer for the second time, so a pair of SIlver Sonic would be very welcome for my forthcoming trip to the Czech Republic!
Winter Steelhead fishing
Ice cold waters
Silver Sonic Waders
Just bought the H2 and no way can the bank account afford these. Gratis would be awesome!
Awesome! would love to try a pair!
Need new waders!!!
They look very nice, I’m going to have to save up for a new pair to get me through the winter fishing months…
I would love to win a pair of waders. I have heard nothing but great things about these waders

Very nice looking waders
Great looking waders. Was that my name on the tag?
Very nice set of Waders! I would love to take them out on the Yuba!
My pea size bladder and baseball size prostate thank you for introducing the new Silver Sonic Zip waders! Would love to win a pair!
Just what I need to stand in moving water after my morning coffee.
If these are half as great as my sonic silvers, I am all in…
Works for me!!
I would love a pair of these for my first time fly fishing trip on Steel Head Alley, Ohio
I was just about to buy a pair of Orvis waders but ill wait and see if I can win a pair!!
Wow convertible waders to go with my convertible car!
These would fill the measure of their creation if I am chosen.
Forever guided into the serene, cool flow! Wish I could proudly say I own my first pair of waders : )
Waders with a fly…. easier to drink more cold beers stream-side 😉
Please make mine XL
My Simms have been leaking for a while, I think it’s time to try Orvis Waders!
I have a fly rod, fly reel, fly line and even dacron backing from Orvis. I miss only Orvis waders!
Can I use these new pair of Silver Sonic Zip Waders in Poland?:)
The extra zip will aid in venting my wader flatulence.
They look great
I would like to try the water removal technique that was posted here at Orvis News on these.
Look great and a pair would go good with my brogue boots. Hope they come in stout.
would like to win a pair of these for the wife. i would she would be more willing fish more with nice waders.
The silver sonic waders I purchased last September already are leaking so it would be great to get a new improved pair!
Looks like good waders. Never had zippered ones, would be interested how they work out.
A poor college student like me could use a pair of those!
They look great.
I wouldn’t mind winning these.
Can only hope they are as good as other Orvis Waders!
I could sure use a pair!
Looks nice! Please include me in the drawing.
Those would look good with my H2!
Hope I win!
I can’t wait to try a pair on.
I’ve been wet wading all summer, but I know I need some waders as the weather turns…this is my next investment. Thanks for getting me hooked Orvis!!!
Sharp looking waders!
I can’t imagine fly fishing without my Orvis products. I’m about ready for a new pair of waders anyway.
Cool, never owned a pair if zip waders before, I’ll have to check these out.
Cool! I need a new pair… the patches on my old pair look bad.
Boy I would love these waders!
Actually in the market for some new waders!
I have never given too much thought to zippered waders. But after watching the video, I think I would like to have a pair. And if I did it I would buy Orvis.
These waders look great! I did chuckle at Phil Monahan’s comment (*cough*) about getting water out of waders in the video above this one, even as I was thinking how much easier the zipper would make it to get water out of these. Not that such a thing would ever be needed, mind you….
Those look really nice, and I need a pair
Since a plumbing upgrade is out of the question . . . .
The podcasts are a great companion while tying flies. Keep up the good work Tom.
Love the new waders and would love to win a pair of the NEW Silver Sonic Zip Waders!.
These look great, would love to own a pair.
I have yet to own a pair of proper waders…
These would be great for my upcoming salmon fishing trip.
In and out of the house before your wife (or girlfriend) even notices!
Be a great set of waders to use on my Salmon trip in September.
Nice looking waders Orvis! I could use a nice pair of those. Especially since I am wader’less right now. 🙂
Just in time to replace my old worn out pair!
I’d love some new waders !
They look real nice, wouldn’t mind getting them for myself.
I really want those waders!
Salty waters, need new waders!
So easy to strip with that zip!
Yep, they look like something I “need”.
They look great, I want one!
Waders are essential for positoning to make the perfect cast. My Hodgeman’s are bound to leak soon!
Awesome looking waders! Would look even better with my Trout Bum Cowboy shirt and Access rod and reel!!
Brilliant! Thanks Orvis!
Seems like a great evolution for a great pair of waders. Sure beats the old, beat up pair I have now…
I really need a new pair of waders!!! This would be a god send! Second to last trip out, my waders developed a small pinhole leak in the shin that I forgot about. The last trip out that leak turned into a hole and brought friends to the party! Holes in the leg plus holes in the croutch…. Good thing I had a change of clothes as the left leg was filled to the shin and the right above the knee, soaked everywhere else. Should have just wet waded!
Those look nice, I would like them please.
These look great,I just bought a pair of Silver Sonics this year and i love the zipper idea!
Always wondered about the zippered version because it has been in the sonic seam wader video from the beginning.
Could really use a new pair of waders with mine having a small leak and winter coming up, my favorite time of the year to fish.
Leaks in each leg of my current waders. Good time to win a pair of Silver Sonics!
Going to the Ark on 9 September. Should I leave room in my bags for them?
To win this would be so nice. : )
Zipper waders? What a fantastic idea! My old button waders never really worked out.
These waders will get me right to the fish in Tasmania, Dec 2013
I need to see a man about a horse.
Looks great.Would love to own a pair of these!

Had my first experience fly fishing with my one of my friend wadders, now i need mines! Those looks terrific.
The waders look comfortable and well made. I have a pair but they are neoprene and hot in the summer. I will have to look in to them. looks like their is good feed back.
great news for my overactive bladder !
zippers in waders just doesn’t seem right . would love to win
must go fishing
I have a zippered pair of another brand and love it even though I took some “heat from the guys”. But I am glad to see Orvis put a zipper on the Silver Sonic Wader will be a great addition to a great wader!!!!!!! That may quiet down the guys.
Thanks Orvis and have a great day
they would be nice for the stealhead run, and next years King and Silver runs as well.
these look great for pee breaks and tea breaks and of course fishing too!
If I win these..I’m wearing them everywhere. Even to bed.

These will be handy, just have to be VERY careful zipping up……
I need new waders, please!
PICK ME! PICK ME!
This would be a perfect birthday gift, and a perfect start to winter adventure gear. So you should definitely pick me for these AWESOME waders. No one gives away cool stuff like this. Orvis rocks.
I need a pair of these.
Looks like a great combo.
Orvis waders have the best fit! Would love to have a pair of these nifty zip ups!
Just managed to tear a hole in mine while fishing the Naknek River in Alaska… I bet these would be a much needed upgrade.
Need the Zipper… sick of just letting it fly with the waders still on.
I’m random lucky…
Take me to the river…….Drop me int water (talking heads)
These sure would look nice on the river. I could tell you how durable these waders are after a season on the water with me: I get “out there.”
Would love a new pair!
Wanted: zippered waders. Must first win contest. Please inquire here.
Please send waders to Western North Carolina ASAP. High water is now receding.
Wow ! All of my fly fishing gear I own are Orvis products, except for wadders and boots. Yup: time to say good bye Simms waders and boots and hello Silver Sonic !
Zipper waders means less time wasted getting rid of morning coffee!
You guys just keep improving the Sonic Seam waders! The zipper looks like a great addition.
I need new waders!!
The convertables have been fantastic thus far…I think a pair with a zipper would be the ultimate!
Just got the pack and travel version of the SilverSonic but I sure could use a fancy new pair.
like the zipper, great for easy outs
Orvis makes great fitting waders!
I’d love a set of zipper waders!
Flegal says, I hate white rabbits.

The waders look great! I hope I win a pair 🙂
I would be happy to sport these fine waders and represent the Orvis brand on any water I happen to be fishing on. Pick me!!

These waders look like the bomb! love it!
Not sure I fully understand the necessity of the zipper but they look sweet and I want em!
I think these will find a perfect home between my orvis boots and rod!!!
I want those waders!…Mine leak
I have never had enough confidence in zippered waders to purchase a pair. Now that they have been out in the market for some years, it may be time to dive in, (which I do occasionally when out on the river).
You cant beat a pair of Orvis waders. They are the timex of waders.
These look like good waders
Nice. I could use a new pair of waders.
This would be awesome!
Ooh! Those would go great with a big steelhead!
I wet my pants.
ZIPPPPPPPPP…..Gotta be careful not to get caught in the zipper. The movie Something About Mary comes to mind! “How’d you get the beans above the frank?!?!?!?”
Yupp 🙂 Count me in! Shipping to Norway wont come cheap, but rest assured Ill put them to good use 😀
#articchar #norwegianbrowns #atlanticsalmon #gloriousgrayling

Another super product from Orvis! Thanks for making it happen
Fish On !

Nice waders! Put my name in the hat.
Looking forward to fishing in my new ORVIS Sonic Waders!! Thanks Tom and Phil!!!!
Just started trout fishing and never owned a pair of waders. These sure would be nice.
I’d be proud to wear them all around these Smoky Mountain streams.

Going up to AK in late Sept. Would love to win a pair!
Wow!… Great looking waders! Can’t wait to get a pair… but I will definitely wait to see if I win a pair first. 😉
I need some new waders, and these look perfect!
Good looking waders!
I hope and pray I win those awesome Silver Sonic waders so I can look just as good as those snob guides on my local river. Maybe then they will at least nod at me or through me some free advice.
I want them
Yes please. They look great.
Great looking waders! They look like they would be perfect for fly fishing. Especially getting in and out of my kayak to fly fish.
I’ll take mine in an XL please!
Need one for my husband….
I would love to give these a try!
I hope I win.
I need a pair of zippered waders for sure.

84 YEARS OLD MY SON HELPS ME GET IN AND OUT MY WADERS THESE WOULD MAKE IT A LOT EASYER FOR BOUTH OF US
These waders can get you back in the water quicker when you gotta go. Don’t have to remove a lot of gear. Love to have em.
