Technologically Advanced Waders Mean Better Fishing

Push the borders with Hodgman Aesis Sonic stocking foot waders

Hodgman® designs waders to give anglers the fit needed to succeed in any element. With new technology infused throughout the new Aesis™ Sonic series, Hodgman is once again leading the way, allowing anglers the opportunity to exceed the limits.

Aesis Sonic waders incorporate Sonic 2.0 no-stitch seams and waterproof breathable shell fabric. 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.

Helpful Tip

Always be wader safety conscience. When wading deeper water be sure to wear the belt to keep wader material close to the body. This reduces the influence of the strong current which tends to push the angler off balance.

The leg and seat are constructed from durable, puncture-resistant, five-layer shell fabric to ensure that water stays on the outside of the waders where it belongs. A four-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 YKK® water-resistant zipper provides a place to keep a large fly box close at hand. Anatomically correct left and right neoprene booties and a D-ring on the back to hold the net give anglers added features for long days on the water.

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.
