Drake Guardian Elite Flooded Timber Jacket
The new Drake Waterfowl Guardian Elite Flooded Timber Jacket is an exceptional wading jacket for duck hunting. From the drain holes in the lower cargo pockets to the double Magnattach duck call pockets located high on the chest, this jacket is made to keep the hunter comfortable and concealed while taking ducks in deep water. The Elite Flooded Timber Jacket is sewn from rugged, wear resistant, 3 layer, G3 windproof, waterproof yet breathable Guardian Elite Pro Fabric and then treated with Drakeâ€™s exclusive DWR treatment which repels water at the surface for a warmer, drier feel even in the wettest conditions. All seams are taped, adjustable water-tight cuffs and the YKK Fowl Proof means 100% dry comfort. This hunting jacket is extremely warm but yet you will not feel hampered by bulk because the Guardian Elite jackets are zone insulated. The back of the jacket is packed with insulation for maximum heat retention in an area that does not hinder motion while the the jacketâ€™s front and sleeves are constructed with the less bulky Lokdown insulation and less restricted motion.
Fowl Proof zip closure on 2 chest pockets as well as 2 cargo pockets keep gear and valuables dry but available when you need them in an instant. And, less essential gear, this wading jacket has a lower cargo pouch located on the back and your rear gear is also protected by a Fowl Proof zipper. Between flights, youâ€™re going to appreciate the Sherpa, lined handwarmer pockets as well as the Sherpa lined hood and neck; but when the ducks start bombing your spread extra ammo seems to jump from the pair of Magnattach shell pockets to your shotgunâ€™s magazine. And, if the shell pouches run dry, this jacket has backup ammo in the form of 12 handy shell loops. Did we mention concealment? Like a face mask that is constructed right into the removable hood that is extremely well designed to hide what ducks hate most â€“ a hunterâ€™s face. The D-ring is great for stowing gear at your fingertips and makes for a safe duck boat when the motorâ€™s kill cord is securely attached. Go ahead wade in deep, the Guardian Elite Flooded Timber jacket has a high cut for deep water hunts and all the features and protection you need to hunt deep water ducks like a pro.
Shell Weight vs Insulated Liner, can't decide? We suggest the Drake Waterfowl approach and put a system together that gives you the best of the shell as well as the insulated jacket. Just select the shell weight in your favorite color and add the DW215 Drake MST Layering Coat in a matching color/camo. The system approach puts you in control of size - perhaps you prefer a larger outer jacket, the Flooded Timber Jacket, but would prefer a size smaller on the insulated liner jacket, the MST Layer Jacket. Select any size on the Shell and layering jacket and put a system together that maximizes your comfort and protection. You may also want to vary the color/camo of the two pieces in your system. And, with the system approach, you gain the advantage of comfort in warm, cool or even cold climates while always being ready for a downpour. It's the Drake way and TXFowlers is glad to assist.
And, when your not in duck waders match Guardian Elite Flooded Timber jacket with the new Guardian Elite Insulated Bib for a dry, warm, comfortable hunt in fields or blinds.
