    Redington is using it on their waders, and its licensed to Orvis. so if it is working for Redington It should work for Orvis. Unless they decide to stick to the same Chinese company that made the rest of their waders.

    Thanks WB, I've been wearing Simms forever, but needing a new pair and searching the web, I saw the new Orvis line is coming out in September. I have never been confident in Orvis waders, but these look tempting.

    Keep away until you hear the reviews. I love SIMMS products but prefer wet wading even on the 44 degree WB. I like feeling my balls shrivel up when I get up to my knees.

    Why would you ditch Simms to go with Orvis? That would be like skipping a fishing trip with Dec Hogan to hang out with beetle.

    Get the G3's or G4's and you'll thank me later.

    Re: Orvis Sonic Weld Technology

    CTobias,
    I have two pairs of Redinton Sonic Pro Zips,I debated heavily when i replaced my first pair of Redington BarrieflexI had for along time,BTW i still have those an they get used for smallmouth or places with alot of thorns. I have a few great products that are made by Simms.. a WindStopper Guide Jacket Polar Fleece,A couple pairs of Polarfleece mitts w/Windstopper fingerless an flip backs.A Glenbrook shirt that is kick ass IMHO,and also a pair of #14 Riversheds with a pack of starcleats in them . I love these boots an i dont have problems with slippery rocks here on the Limestoners or on a river or freestoner.
    As for 400 dollars or more for a pair of waders...Aint happening.For what i have heard regarding the neoprene booties on their breathables wearing thin and the amount you pay for Simms waders..aint no way ill buy a pair yet, but if ido it will definitely be G4 zips.
    I'll put my Redingtons against Simms for great quality.
    As for Orvis..best three products they make IMHO are the CFO reel click n pawl or disc drag,Battenkill Barstock,and Super Strong tippet.Aside from that Their clothing is made for Hobbits.

    The difference is my waders were made by Americans in Bozeman and not Chinese communist slave labor.

    The G series is the way to go. Why else would guides around the world rely on them if they weren't the best.

    Re: Orvis Sonic Weld Technology

    There is a BIG difference with Gore-tex waders and coated waders. I own the G3 guide and a pair of LL bean waist high. The Bean waders are hotter and hold in the moisture and heat. I think the welded seams are a grate idea and will buy them when Simms uses them on their waders.

    We were talking about redington and Simms not ll bean waders. Redington sonic pro waders breathe fine and are a better price point. Simms makes great but expensive waders.

    Mac,
    thanks for the input. I do feel Simms makes some great products like i earlier stated,But for 400 clams an up......thats a lot just like flyrod companies are goin the 1000 dollar rod mark.It's ridiculous an obscene. As for beathabilty, Redington makes a great wader, i am glad i bought another two pairs,Last year i bought the first pair of Sonic Pros , and this year i bought another pair.They are even better made than my first pair of Redington's and they still get used too.

    My point is that Redington or Orvis do not use gore tex but put a coating on the fabric for waterproofing like LL Bean. But why am i wasting my time trying to educate a guy that just bought a berkely ugly stick fly rod
