Powered by the next generation of sonic seaming technology, the Hodgman® Aesis™ Sonic wader utilizes Sonic 2.0 technology to create double sonic welded seams, which eliminate thousands of stitch holes. Each seam is reinforced with waterproof seam tape for ultimate leak protection, ensuring water stays on the outside of your wader where it belongs.

We know you’ll be in and out of drift boats or climbing river edges on your mission to catch fish, so we utilize 5-layer construction on the leg and seat for exceptional durability and puncture resistance. Additionally, we eliminated inside leg seams in high abrasion areas while still allowing articulation in the knees for stellar range of motion and mobility.

The wader upper incorporates 4-layer shell fabric for added breathability where you need it most, and features a Durable Water repellent (DWR) coating to shed water. A Riri® waterproof center-front zipper makes the wader easy to get on and off plus provides optimum ventilation.

Convert your wader to waist height without removing your suspenders via the drop down system for fishing in warmer days. Microfleece-lined hand warmer pockets utilize YKK® water-resistant zippers and an internal flip out storage pocket is included.

Comfort is key for long days wade fishing, so we use anatomically correct left and right booties for a comfort fit. Each stocking foot bootie utilizes 5mm thick neoprene to keep your feet warmer in cold water.

This wader also accepts the Core INS removable insulation system so you can transform your wader for cold or warm weather wading (sold separately). The liner zips in to create an all-season wader.

Convert your Hodgman® wader using the one and only all-season wader insulating system. The removable Core INS system utilizes zoned insulation in your lower body where you need it most. We utilize Thinsulate® insulation in the leg and hip which are submerged most often so the frigid bite from cold water doesn’t reach your legs. Additionally, if you work up a sweat getting to your fishing spot the moisture resistant breathable insulation keeps you warm even when moist. A fleece upper ensures comfort where you need less insulation above the water.

To install the Core INS system in a few minutes follow these easy steps. You can also watch the instructional video at www.hodgman.com

  1. Lay the wader and the liner face up next to each other on the ground.
  2. Unbuckle the shoulder straps to allow access to the inside of the wader. (On the drop top designs included on the Aesis Sonic waders remove the Velcro attachment point located on the rear buckle instead of unbuckling the front of the wader).
  3. Reach inside the wader and pull the right leg of the wader inside out to expose the connection snap points located at the inside top of the stocking foot bootie.
  4. Connect the liner to the wader by snapping the corresponding green snaps to green connection points on the wader and the red to red connection points. Then snap the front and back connection points in place. (Be sure the leg on the Core INS liner is not twisted.)
  5. Reach inside the wader and pull the left leg inside out and connect the corresponding red, green and black connection points as you did in step 3.
  6. Grab the stocking foot of each wader leg and pull to turn the wader right side out. The liner will be pulled inside your wader as the wader is turned right side out.
  7. Secure the upper portion of the removable liner to the wader using the two zippers located on the upper inside of the wader. The zippers are under the flap of fabric just inside the top of the wader.

When the liner is installed in your wader it is recommended you point your toe when putting on the wader. This will prevent your toe from pushing fabric over the entrance hole into the stocking foot bootie.

Product Reviews

Hodgman Aesis Sonic Zip Stocking Foot is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Waders Well made. They seem thick and durable. The tall sizes really are tall sizes. They actually fit. The one complaint I would have is there are no zippered pockets. They have the 2 hand pockets and one tiny pocket in the inside of the waders. That's it. But for a size that will fit me (6'6" - 300 lbs) I will absorb the minor pocket inconvenience. Only used them once but I recommend them. Thank you Hodgman for being the first company to realize the big guys also use waders.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Waders I have ever Owned! I have been wearing chest waders for fishing and hunting for 45-years and have worn at least a half-dozen brands over the years. I fish and hunt primarily in Alaska, Montana, and Oregon in the early spring, fall and early winter. I was about to commit to the Simms Zippered waders. However, one of my fishing buddies had purchased a pair and had zipper leak problems. I purchased the Hodgman Aesis Sonic Zip Stocking Foot waders and added the wader liner. This single set of waders and liner has replaced traveling with two sets of waders, one neoprene and one breathable in order to be comfortable in the ever changing weather. I have never been so comfortable on the river. I fished in freezing weather in the morning and then in sunny warm weather in the afternoon. I also wore these waders without the liner to hike up to the continental divide in Yellowstone to fly fish the outlet of Shoshone Lake for late fall Brown Trout. The waders were comfortable to hike in. When we got the the lake, I put on the wader liners and was comfortable fishing at altitude in late October in very frigid water. The waders performed extremely well. PS - The sight fishing for some husky Browns was awesome as well. Now that I have worn them for a season, my son is buying a pair.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from My first Hodgman experience I bought these towards the end of the 2018 season and fished around 70 days in them 18/19. Great waders to wear, really excellent fit and the thermal lining system is terrific, however, first day of the 2020 season, stepped off the bank with left foot into the water and in rushed. Absolutely gutted, yet another pair of waders that you barely get a season out of. Seriously disappointed !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features and quality Just went winter steelheading on the Sandy River in my new Hodgemans Aesis waders, it’s cold, windy and no place for leaks - the fit, zipper, quality all good so far. Looks like Hodgeman has a winner here
