Banded Realtree Apparel for the Rugged Waterfowler


When it comes to waterfowling, mud, ice, water, frigid temperatures and harsh conditions are all part of the game, and the hunter’s gear and apparel must not only endure, but perform in these tough conditions. Many manufactures tried and failed when it came to producing waterfowl equipment and clothing that could stand up to the rigors of the hunt. Then, along came Banded Brands. The founders set out to create superior products to enhance the outdoor experience and accomplished just that. 


Banded Brands is a progressive outdoor clothing and accessory company offering innovative products that bring your life and the outdoors together. A relative newcomer to the industry, Banded hit the ground running with a full line of gear primarily for the waterfowl hunter. Since then they have expanded into outdoor lifestyle clothing, breathable waders, and turkey hunting outerwear. In the future, Banded will continue to drive forward bringing merchandise to market designed to make the outdoor experience exceptional.


Banded currently offers over six-hundred items representing nineteen diverse product categories, such as outerwear; waders; boots; hunting accessories; blinds; decoys and calls. 


“Banded’s new clothing and waders for 2016 are engineered for hunting in all conditions,” John Gordon, public relations for Banded Holdings Inc., said.  “We are most excited about the Black Label breathable insulated wader. This is a premium product packed with features designed to take waterfowl hunting comfort to a new level. All of our new products are available in Realtree Max-5 which is a great pattern that blends into diverse environments. “
