Drake’s innovative professionals took a look at their most
dependable wader and thought how can we make it even better – And their thought
was improved seams for even fewer defects.
So they developed a new seam tape that is substantially better than
previous tapes and, using this improved tape, Elite breathable wader will feature a much wider seam
tape. The wider seam tape provides a
more dependable seal while resisting defects from the stress of folds, bends
The Drake breathable waders have been the leader in comfort,
but Drake is an innovator and has never been content with yester-years
success. So they designed and
constructed the Guardian Elite Breathable waders with new features that improve
even the Drake EST wader which for years was the best there was. Features like the new Mudder Buckshot Boot. This new boot weighs less than half of its
predecessor but yet it is packed with 1600g of insulation. Simply stated, the Mudder boot is a lighter
boot that is 25% warmer than the previous model – what a huge improvement. And, the Buckshot Mudder fits snug on the
ankle for a secure walk in muck and mud.
The new sole design adds additional stability. For good reason Drake was overwhelmed with
their success in the design and construction of the new Mudder boot. They knew that this new boot, better than any
other feature exemplifies Drake’s innovation nature; so they molded the Drake
logo right into the side of each boot.
And, the Guardian
will include a score of desirable features like the front pouch that is large
enough to store your face mask, gloves, neck gaiter or snacks and has a call
pouch with Magnattach. There is also a
vertical Magnattach duck call pouch with a mesh bottom to keep things dry. This wader also has a vertical chest pocket that
is equipped with a waterproof zipper making it perfect for you phone, license
and other valuables. 6 horizontal, just
in case shell loops are located 3 on each side and provide quick, easy access
to ammo when the ducks are coming in one after another or a cripple needs quick
attention. Behind the chest pouch there
is a fleece lined hand warmer that is next to your body for additional warmth
and is protected by the external pouch.
The Elite wader’s knees are reinforced for extended wear and comfort
when kneeling or bending. The new knee
patch consist of comfortable closed cell foam which is enclosed in neoprene
with a HD shell with Hydro-Flex for wear resistance and cushioning
comfort. The Hydro-Flex allows
