In addition to its recently announced revamp of their men's waders lineup and all new men's and women's wading boots, Redington has also announced a new model of women's waders for 2014. The new waders, dubbed Siren, are completely redesigned from a style perspective and will be available in two fit styles because -- as Redington puts it -- they "understand that women are built differently than men, and for that matter, not all women’s body types are alike."
The two fits are called "Kate" and "Marilyn". While all fisher-men might not be able to guess at the inspiration for those style names, most fisher-women certainly will. The Kate Fit starts with a size range from 2-4 and 6-8 regular with an addition of 6-8 Tall. The Marilyn Fit range is 6-8 with an additional array of sizes through 14-16. Neoprene gussets on the upper wader expand to comfortably fit any chest size, and the 3mm high-density neoprene booties are ergonomically designed for right and left as well as for a woman’s smaller volume foot.
The Siren features three layers of waterproof, breathable DWR coated fabric, hand-warmer pockets that feature two-sided fleece and their horizontal zippered, water-resistant storage pocket has a Velcro flap closure for easy access. Other features include: opposing suspender buckles to quickly convert to waist high waders, a mesh gravel guard for drainage, an updated lace hook and a stylish tonal print. A wading belt and storage bag are also included with every pair. Available in February 2014, the Siren Waders will retail for $219.95.
At that price point, it is a sure bet that the Siren is not intended to replace the Women's Sonic Pro waders (which retail for $379). That said, Redington has yet to announce a women's edition of their new, flagship Super Dry line of waders.
