Redington Introduces New Wader Technology with No Stitching in the Sonic-Pro Series.
Noticing a gap in the market, Redington searched to see what new technology could be used to improve on the current waders in the line and ultrasonic welding was the answer. Using this sew free technique, combining different waterproof and breathable fabrics and differing layering situations provide multiple benefits. Seams are completely flat eliminating spots for wear, and no needles means no holes for water to penetrate. No thread is used reducing weight and material needed to be less bulky throughout all while negating seam failure.
All three wader styles in this category utilize ultrasonic welding but also have many more features. The Sonic-Pro Zip Front and the Stocking Foot Waders have five layers of fabric on the lower legs and seat for added durability, ergonomic hand warmer pockets lined with brushed micro fleece and laser cut exterior pockets with YKK water-resistant zippers. They also have custom designed features such as a 2” stretch wading belt with a Redington buckle, gravel guards with a molded lace hook and a hemostat clamp d-ring near the suspender attachment point. The major difference between these two waders is the Zip Front waders feature a full, center-front Riri ‘Storm’ Waterproof Zipper to allow getting in and out of the waders much easier. The third style in this collection is the Sonic-Pro Wader Pant, which has many of the same features. Instead of a 5-layer system, the pants feature 3-layers to increase breathability while still maintaining durability.
