Banded Elite Breathable Insulated Chest Wader. The quest for the ultimate wader seemed like a never-ending journey. Year after year of dealing with the common problems and frustrations associated with waders - bulkiness, lack of mobility, discomfort, sweating, and seemingly epidemic seeps and leaks that result in the shivering misery of enduring frigid water next to skin instilled in us a determination to build something better. Banded set out on a mission to develop the most comfortable, lightest, most practical, bad-to-the-bone breathable waders ever made.

After countless hours of research and development and extensive materials testing, Banded engineers fused optimal fabrics with the most scientifically advanced waterproof and breathable laminate to develop the Super Hydrophobic Evaporative Development System (SHEDS). They then unified anatomical research and insulation components to create a cutting-edge Heat Absorbing Retention System (HARS).
The next step was to incorporate the cutting-edge SHEDS and HARS technology into an ultimate wader featuring unprecedented functionality, wear-ability, durability and performance throughout all the extreme conditions the waterfowler commonly encounters.
Banded taped the seams for 100% waterproofness, reinforced the knee and seat areas with 900D fabric for ultimate strength, integrated a 1600 gram Thinsulate insulated boot, articulated key areas for maximum range of motion, and incorporated the first ever bib-fit styling.

The end result is the most technologically advanced, sharpest-looking, new-aged breathable wader ever to hit the market. Whether you find yourself walking long distances or simply hopping into the blind, you will find that this wader is extremely versatile for all seasons and conditions.

    Just got these

    by Daniel Funk

    New to duck hunting and was looking for a Breathable insulated. Just got these today and will be hunting them this Saturday. Fit out of the box is really good, boot is a bit big I wear in 11 in my trout waders and shoes but 11 R is a nice fit but boot is a bit big. So far I am happy but stay tuned

    Boot seal issues

    by RK

    Salesman told me that they would not leak near the boot seal. High possibility that condensation would form and be mistaken for a leak. These waders have leaked at the boot seal since the first day of use and have leaked everyday since. Way too expensive to not be warrantied for replacement. Looking for another pair and will purchase another brand from another competitor for less money and a LIFETIME warranty,

    Do not waste the money

    by Tvan

    Will not buy another branded product but will buy from Mack’s again. These waders leaked on the 3rd hunt at the side of the boot. From this price it is not worth it but a competitors brand with a warranty. Mack’s gladly refunded me my money with their one year warranty on waders.

    BANDED ELITE Breathable Waders

    by mallard

    I have waterfowl hunted for over 30 years. Waders were very comfortable, lots of pockets and hand warmers were warm and thought out well by hunters (lined and pass thru). Easy to get off and on also. However, the stitching in the belt loops and stitching in the reinforcement on the knees and belt loops constantly came out of the waders. The seems where the boots joined the waders ALWAYS left soaking wet water on my pants underneath my waders and in the waders. Boots did not have this issue. I believe that BANDED has a "good" product but for the money of these waders they need to tweek them some more and improve the water issue on the seems of the shin and the craftsmanship of the stitching in these waders. Macks was great to deal with on these issues and concerns! This is why I continue to use Macks PW for my waterfowling needs!
