Drakeâ€™s innovative professionals took a look at their most dependable wader and thought how can we make it even better â€“ 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 and stretching.
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 â€“ 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 Drakeâ€™s innovation nature; so they molded the Drake logo right into the side of each boot.
