The only thing that the Red Heads have an advanage on is the d-rings. Other than that, I think the Ultimates are the better buy, and they are both the same price. The Red Heads are heavier(I think) and aren't as comfortable in the boot. They have a short ankle fit boot instead of one that comes up to the bottom of your calf like the ultimates(to me, that is an advantage for the ultimates) It seems they give better support when walking in mud. The ultimates don't have a buckle at the shoulders, they have velco straps so they don't interfere with shooting. If you couldn't tell, I own the ultimates. Best waders I've owned. You talk about tough. I have intentionally tried to drive nails through them and wasn't able to. I've tried that with my stocking foots and it didn't take long. Buy the ultimates and I promise you won't regret it.
I second this. I assume you are talking about the Red Head Bone Dry Extremes? I think that's what they're called. I have a set of those and they are well built. BUT, they are very heavy in the boot area, pretty uncomfortable and for lack of a better word, cumbersome to walk around in. They are now my loaner pair because I can't stand to walk more than 50 yards in them!
I switched over to a pair of Lacrosse Brush Tuffs IIs. I love them--way better in the comfort department and they seem a couple pounds lighter.
As for the Ultimates, I am glad to see they are well thought of... I just bought my wife a pair and they will be here any day for the opener.
