DRAKE CLOTHING - DRAKE WEAR - DRAKE CLOTHES
Drake Clothing is the ultimate waterfowl wear manufacturer; and they also produce a huge line of high quality gear for the hunter. Their products are specifically aimed at the duck and goose hunter and the numerous features and quality have made Drake Clothes a huge success. Since their beginning in 2002, Drake has continuously improved the technology behind their products - better waterproofing, tougher fabric, sharper camo patterns, call holders, license holders, ...... and on and on. The 2002 introduction of the Eqwader System which put Drake on the waterfowl hunting map. The Eqwader's revolutionary concept of a garment that was waterproof, windproof, and breathable on the top (outside the wader) and yet the lower portion of the garment, approximately waist up to the chest, is sewn from a breathable fleece to keep the wearer cool inside the wader, captured the duck hunting crowd's attention. The rest as they say is history. But, a relatively short history. By 2008, only 6 years for introduction, the Drake Clothing Eqwader system had found its way into almost every duck blind and decoy spread in the US, Canada and abroad. I can not recall a single waterfowl clothing manufacturer that by, 2008, did not introduce a knock-off eqwader garment of their own. And, through all of the competition, Drake still maintains the leader in this versatile concept.
Drake's continued success can be attributed to their no nonsense product development; like DryFuse Seam Technology. DryFuse Seam Technology is a four-phase process of sealing Drake wader seams for maximum waterproof protection. And another Drake innovation is Hyper Shield 2.0. An impenetrable membrane, Hyper Shield 2.0 blocks wind and rain on the outside, yet it is breathable to allow moisture and perspiration from the inside escape. Hypershield is laminated to Drake's rugged Refuge HS shell fabric to produce a 100% waterproof/breathable garment - guaranteed. Then, Drake adds an external water-repellant finish and tapes all the seams on all of the 2.0 Drake clothing and provides 2 more means of protection between the hunter and the elements. And they didn't stop there. The Drake innovations continue to stack like flat beaks on opening day: Wind Stopper, Retrieve-Rite System, Dura-Lite, HD2 (hydro-Durance Heavy Duty and Refuge HS Hardshell and many more exclusive Drake Clothing features make them number 1.
