The best of both worlds. With Instinctive Features normally reserved for our coats and the dual performance of Eqwader, this jacket is the best in it's field. The removable hood adds comfort and protection in all but the harshest conditions. Heat Escape Vents under the arms regulate body temperature when things begin to heat up. We included the Call Separator for stashing your back-up call where you can grab it quickly without taking your eyes off circling birds. This Deluxe model also has Deep Water Handwarmer Pockets located high on the chest - the perfect place to keep your hands warm and dry while wading in deep water.
Our patented Eqwader technology revolutionized waterfowl clothing and has been a core piece of the Drake Waterfowl brand since day one. Just like the Earth's equator is the dividing line between two distinct temperate zones, we noticed a similar dividing line on the body when you are wearing chest waders: cold, hostile conditions above the waders, and warm, humid conditions underneath the waders. Our unique combination of waterproof/breathable fabric on the sleeves and upper body matched with ultra-breathable fleece on the lower body introduced a whole new level of comfort and performance when wearing chest waders. The moisture-wicking fleece on the lower torso is 15 times more breathable than the upper waterproof material and works to prevent the build-up of perspiration and moisture vapor. These dual zones of protection keep you dry both inside and outside your waders.
