Banded Redzone Breathable Insulated Waders


Banded Redzone Breathable Insulated Waders are the result of a quest for the ultimate wader. It 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 one's 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, engineers fused optimal fabrics with the most scientifically advanced waterproof and breathable laminate to develop the Super Hydrophobic Evaporative Development System (SHEDS). It was 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 Ultra insulated boot, articulated key areas for maximum range of motion, and incorporated the first ever bib-fit styling.

All of the modern features hunters have come to expect like; Fleece lined hand warmer, Upper chest shotgun shell sleeves, Water resistant chest pouch, Adjustable shoulder suspenders, Removable webbing waist belt PLUS great new additions like side zip chest adjustment, Integrated over the boot gaiter and High back panel for exposure protection. The end result is the most technologically advanced, sharpest-looking, breathable wader ever to hit the market.

Whether you find yourself walking long distances to your spot or simply hopping into the blind, you'll find that the RedZone wader is extremely versatile for all seasons and conditions. Comfort Rating of minus 10 degrees to minus 50 degrees.

Just get them!

by BIG E

Warmth and mobility? Yes please. Best money ever spent on duck hunting. In my experience, boot size was one size too small. Other than that, they're perfect. I can move now unlike in my neoprenes. I'm a banded breathables guy from here on.

Best waders I have owned!! They are well worth the money.

by Bam

Do not like wearing waders at all. Very comfortable and not restrictive like neoprene on a big guy.

Happy Customer!

by Crazy Wolf

Extremely comfortable waders, lightweight and warm.

Best thing since smokeless powder

by Pintail

Why didn't someone come up with these years ago? Its like setting decoys with your favorite sweat pants on, only waterproof

Worth the money!

by Justin

First time duck hunter. I am 6'1 with a football player build. Big legs and a wide back with a size 12 shoe. Fits great. Enough room to layer if needed. I would recommend this to anyone who is interested in buying waders.

Comfy waders

by Al

I have been putting on waders for over 35 years and these are the most comfortable I have ever worn. Easy to get on and off. Not bulky and very warm. Looking forward to enjoying these waders for years to come.

Great waders

by Utarcher

Awesome waders. I heard a review that said buy one size larger. So I did. Wear a 10..bought an 11.Good call. They fit great. Warm. Non restrictive. Look awesome. Weird though. you look down and its like you're wearing your insulated bibs or something. lol.

Best waders on the planet!

by Bill

Moved from Florida to Wisconsin last year and need some warmer waders. After talking to a few people I knew that had these waders I decided to order them. Let’s just say I couldn’t be more happy with them! The most comfortable waders I’ve ever put on! Been hunting with them for the past month in 30 degree weather and have never been cold! Home run banded gear!

Foot runs small and they leak!

by Wally

These waders leaked as soon as I got in water deeper than my knee. I could not find any defects, but I suspect they are leaking at the seam where the boot leg meets the insulated uppers. This area has a sewn seam that attaches the inner leg portion to the rest of the waders. Also the boot size runs extremely small. I have a 9.5 foot, and ordered a size 10 which is very tight even with thin socks.. I have a friend who ordered size 11 and they just barely fit my foot with average weight socks.

Comfortable but not dependable

by Will

I would agree they are super comfortable and the company has been fairly responsive . However, the best warranty is one I don't have to use. I have to date been through five pair in just three seasons. The last pair I pulled out the box in Hagerman, ID and my right foot was wet an hour later. The seem was leaking at the boot. If I have to get a new pair or two every year it is not worth the aggravation.

Good until they leaked

by Matt Burke

Waders lasted 10 hunts and started to develop small leaks. Currently have leaks at the seams near the left boot and the upper right chest area near the adjustment points. This is the first season with them and would have thought they would last. I will be calling Banded for replacement and hopefully those last a little longer.

Think twice

by Jaybird

These wader are the most comfortable waders ever. The boots are warm and comfortable. The down side is the quality. Not worth $329. These are $225 to $250 at most. The stitching is poor, and they will leak! Another point I want to make is the wader is advertised to have 900 D on the legs and seat. It is not 900D fabric in the seat. This is a false claim.

Great for Cold and Ice

by Rugaroux

I just wore these on a very cold and icy Louisiana duck hunt. These were toasty warm and held up to the tough conditions. I almost forgot I was wearing waders. My arches are very high so I had to play with what kind of socks to wear as the boots were a little tight in the arch. If I have one complaint, don’t get the hand warmer pocket wet. Once it gets wet it’s useless and very hard to dry out. Otherwise a great product that I recommend highly.

Throw your neoprene away!

by Colby

Hands down the best waders I ever ever owned, super comfy and super warm. I’ve always used neoprene for hunting and fishing so I just stuck with the norm. I am so glad that I switched to banded, I will never buy anything but these. My dad tried mine on and liked them so well that he ordered a pair next day. I love the way the boots fit too, it’s like they suction cup to your feet so that when you are walking, your feet don’t lift up out of the boot.

Low durability/Leaks

by Roy s

Very low quality. On our 4th pair that have leaked within a year. 2 of those waders have been worn less than 3 times.
<br>Banded must improve their durability quickly.

Great, but pricey for quality

by Dan

Great waders, but price is too high. Only got 2 years of hunting before boots leaked. That's not worth the cost. Besides being overpriced I would give them 5 stars.

What a shame

by MikeC

So I bought my first pair of these waders 3 years ago and have yet to have a pair make it through a full duck season. I am now on my fourth pair. The only reason I’m on my fourth pair is banded is very good when it comes to honoring a warranty. But this will be the last pair I own if these leak I will go to a different brand. It’s a shame because they are great waders and are very warm. But after 3 yrs and 4 pair just not worth the hassle. Not a good product.

14 king

by Frank

I'm a big boy, about 6' and 330lbs. and wear a 13 sneaker. I have previously owned 2 pair of neoprene waders, which have become a pain to put on when layering up for those cold winter mornings. I ordered the 14 king. There is room in the chest and gut without even unzipping the sides, which is where I have my issues with the neoprenes. The boot size is definitely smaller than normal. I ordered a 14, which fits, but I would go 2 sizes up from your normal shoe size if you layer socks. I can't tell you anything about warmth or its ability to keep water out. You'll have to wait till next year to get that report. Can't go wrong with the sale price either. Hope this helps, just didn't want someone with a big upper body or larger foot to have issues when buying.

Comfortable, but leak, so not worth the expense.

by Matt,

Waders run a little tight in the top of your foot. I ordered 1 size bigger. Boot tread is slippery. Reinforced lower leg fabric is too bulky and fills with air and rides up leaving no leg protection. Comfortable to wear. But that lower leg seam just started leaking at 1yr 19 days after purchase. Waders look new, but no fun being wet in below freezing temps. When is someone going to make a wader that lasts and keeps you dry.
