After years of innovating and testing the best-selling RedZone Breathable Waders Banded has identified high-wear stress areas and completely removed any risk of seam failure on the unique over-the-boot gaiter design equipped on all RedZone 2.0 and RedZone 2.0 Elite models.

The new, integrated belt-loop system (RZ-CLINCHFIT) securely holds the removable, protective pant in-place with a custom fit and supportive feel. All that, with absolute zero stitching into the waterproof membrane underneath. Added protection, right where you need it. The 2.0’s also feature a reconfigured anatomical seam-mapping system that mirrors body movement and greatly reduces seam fatigue.

The NEW RZ-TRACTION Boot is anatomically molded to match foot movement with a unique deep-fluted traction pattern that grips, flexes and responds for maximum traction and stability. All boots are packed with 1600-g Thinsulate™ insulation. GO3-LAYER fabric construction is lightweight and provides superior durability and performance laminated with SHEDS™ Waterproof Breathable Technology. The mobility-enhancing articulated knee design allows maximum range of motion.

Shining new light on wader innovation, The RedZone™ Elite 2.0 is equipped with an integrated LED light system in the chest pocket that provides always-ready illumination for early-morning darkness. (Batteries sold separately.) To top it all off, Banded RedZone 2.0 and 2.0 ELITE waders come with a NEW Two-Year Warranty.

Tall Sizes beware.

by Bigdumbandugly

Bought these in size 14Tall. I am 6'5", 260#. These were far too short waisted. The waist belt barely went above my butt. The crotch was short. Fit more like a regular.
the quality of build is great. Heavily inuslated. Likely very good for late season hunts. Boots fit great. Lots of pockets, etc. Sent them back due to poor fit. Would consider the uninsulated ones as I believe they would be more versatile, yet too short.

Durability Issues

by Bill

First pair lasted one hunt before leaking in the crotch. Spent $50 to ship back to Banded and they replaced the waders. Second pair has lasted 4 hunts and is now leaking in the crotch. Do not purchase.

Busted Waders and No Answer From Banded

by J McMaster

I bought these waders directly from Banded. I love Mack's but do not waste your money on these. The very first time I wore these in the blind the stitching for the exterior hand warmer pulled out and the liner is coming out of the waders. I have placed multiple ticket requests and voicemails for Banded requesting they fix the $500 waders. They have yet to respond and have since removed the waders from their website. Looks like those of us who bought them have been dooped. Trust me and buy anything else other than Banded. They don't stand behind their products. That's the last $500 they will receive from me.

Not very Elite

by jca

Poor quality waders. Used them for 2 hunts, and the inside lining ripped on both sides near the zipper. Boots are very heavy; also the fit is not great. good luck if you get the hand warmer wet, it's hard to dry out.

I like Banded for other hunting clothing, but they need to work on their waders, they are not high quality as you would expect.
I'm going back to Drake.

On my third pair in less than a year. First two pairs leaked at the crotch on their maiden voyage into the cold duck waters. Third pair still in the box waiting for their initial trip. Needless to say I will be taking a change of clothes when I try them out.
