    Anyone buy the newest breathable insulated model yet? If so do you like them.

    May I ask what one is the newest? Those Banded ones sure look cool but sure are pricey

    I guess they added a bunch of stuff this year. Shell holders, Hand warmer pockets, magnetic pouch, elastic on the hips.

    IDK where you guys are hunting but 1600g boots and a liner that doesn't seem to be removable? This is California not too many below freezing days unless you're in the NE zone. I like the features wish they had a non-insulated 1000g boot version.

    I'm dying in the un-insulated 600g breathables now, and I'm not heavy. We were in Washington in December, fleece pants and un-insulated waders, two pairs of smart wool socks and I was fine with temps in the mid-20's.

    NO Ka ,
    From what I've heard and seen from Banded Gear , the stuff looks good , but when it comes to quality the most important part IMO ... They're one of the worst on the market ..... No QC ... Every thing I've seen of banded gear in use , is its falling apart ... Expensive garbage don't waste your money ....
    Want a good pair of waders , check out Wingsupply they have a bunch of brands .... I got a pair of the heavy duty insulated bootfoot Macks Breathables for 100.00 they retail for 329.00 .... Really nice , warm , durable as well as comfortable ..

    I gave up on Banded a longgg time ago. Falls apart after a couple solid hunts.
