Re: Wader advice: Orvis Silver Sonic
I have a pair and only had them on 3 times in the last winter.
I really like them, they are light, no leaks so far, dry very quickly, I had to go through some bushes to wade and so far the waders are just fine, the transparent waterproof bag is very nice, I didn't need to take it out to check mails, to receive calls or to make calls all I have to do is to put on my bluetooth ear piece and dial the numbers while the phone is in it.
One thing that you might not like is that there is no zipper for a quick pee.
My sizing suggestion is to follow the sizing chart, I had to return the first pair because I followed the customer service personal suggestion to go from Small to Medium size.
Overall, I really like it, I don't know about the durability yet.
