Hodgman Aesis Sonic Stocking Foot Waders

Going Beyond the Boundaries of Traditional Waders

Hodgman®, known for pioneering fishing waders, is redefining the standards anglers look for in stocking foot waders. With new technology infused throughout the new Aesis Sonic™ series, Hodgman is once again leading the way.

Aesis Sonic waders incorporate Sonic 2.0 no-stitch seams and a proprietary, breathable V-TecH™ barrier. This allows anglers breathability and comfort while staying dry all day long. Sonic 2.0 seams incorporate a double sonic weld for added waterproof protection with no stitch holes to leak. There is no inside leg seam to eliminate potential leaks in high wear areas.

The leg and seat are constructed from durable, puncture-resistant, five-layer V-TecH fabric to ensure that water stays on the outside of the waders where it belongs. V-TecH three-layer construction is utilized in the upper of the Aesis Sonic wader, delivering highly breathable construction where maximum sweat vapor transfer is needed most. The hydrophilic membrane pulls moisture away from the body.

For versatility on the water, Hodgman added a suspender system to convert waders from chest to waist high without removing suspenders.

A top-loading external pocket with a water-resistant YKK® zipper provides a place to keep a large fly box close at hand. Anatomically correct left and right neoprene booties, a micro-fleece lined hand warmer with water-resistant zippers and a D-ring on the back to hold the net give anglers added features for long days on the water. A removable waterproof touch screen pouch allows anglers to use smart phones and store keys without the risk of getting them wet.

The waders are also available in a front-zip design with Riri® zippers for easy on and off. All Aesis Sonic Stocking Foot Waders accept the patented Core INS™ (sold separately) removable insulation system for a wide variety of water and air temperatures. Waders come in a solid or digi-camo version featuring a unique Hodgman digital-camo pattern.
