Blue skies and warm weather might make for a comfortable day, but any serious waterfowler can tell you that the best hunting happens in cloudy, snowy, downright nasty weather. Banded® RedZone ELITE 2.0 Waders were built to keep you comfortable in just such conditions. The SHEDSTM (Super Hydrophobic Evaporative Development System) fabric keeps water out while breathing much better than neoprene. Plus, HARSTM insulation adds warmth without unnecessary bulk. And if you're breaking ice on the way to your spot, effective insulation is critical. But don't worry…with a comfort rating of -10° to +50°F, they're not JUST for nasty weather.
ELITE 2.0 Waders go beyond Banded's standard 2.0 Waders with a number of premium features for the demanding hunter. First and foremost, they come with a new, removable over-the-boot protective pant with the RZ-CLINCHFIT Strap System. The pant connects with the built-in belt, eliminating stitching to the waterproof membrane and enhancing comfort. The ELITE Wader also features an integrated LED lighting system for those dark easly-morning treks. Last but not least, they feature the upgraded RZ-TRACTION boot with deep-fluted traction pattern for exceptional grip. Banded RedZone ELITE 2.0 Waders are fully equipped for success and comfort in the worst conditions.
2.0: More on the second-generation improvements
After years of innovating and testing, Banded identified high-wear stress areas and completely removed any risk of seam failure. By completely removing the knee seam found on gen-1 RedZone waders and remapping the seams throughout the entire Wader, Banded significantly increased overall durability. Less stiches, less seam fatigue, less chance of seam failure. Simple as that.
