Thoughts on Redington Sonic-Pro waders?

Saw an ad for these in this month's F&S. Checked their website, and they're pricey ($250 for their midline, non-zip front model). Curious, however, since there's no exposed stitching or seams, all of the attachments are done with, well, sound. So what, say you? Gimmick or the real deal?

I'd never pay $250 for a pair of non gore-tex waders.

Ya, my post went away, but this is not new really. Orvis has sonic seamed waders for quite a while. Same price and Orvis customer service backing them up. I do find it odd that Redington went to all the effort to put small strips of 3 layer fabric on the rear of the calves and lower thighs, but continued it into the rear seat area, thus effectively creating two seams where there only needs to be one.

orvis licensed the tech to redington

the problem with the orivs is that they are only a "pack and travel" wader...
redington is offering the tech in a full featured line of waders...

I don't really think that the price is too bad considering that I've never gotten more than a year and a half out of a pair of top of the line Simms before the seams leak like crazy. And Simms are over 500.00 a pair. You can go thru two pairs of Reddingtons for the price of one pair of Simms.

Simms have other lower price points. $250 is way too high for these.

$250 way too high for any waders, IMO. Think half that.

I don't know if Redington licensed this technology from Orvis. Sonisealing of synthetic materials isn't very new. Your toothpaste tube is sealed with sonic vibrations, btw.

I have had my Simms waders going on 3 yrs now with no problems. I have heard nothing but negative comments about Orvis waders leaking. Simms is top of the line hands down!!

yes orvis made leaky waders (sewn seams)... but now they have developed a tech that doesn't leak

Simms makes some great waders... they also make some over-priced junk

The price of the waders won't catch you more fish. Get the function you want at the lowest possible price; though quality of construction is always a big factor as is customer service should you have an issue with the product purchased. I'm in the same situation, not sure exactly what to buy. I need something comfortable and durable because I do a lot of hiking in them but I'm not willing to spend more than $200 I don't think....

My vote is for ll bean as well... any company that will stand behind what they sell 100 percent can have my money any day. Simms will tell you to pound sand and at 500 a pair they can keep them.
