Drake 3.0 Buckshot Eqwader 1600G Neoprene Wader
We designed the Buckshot Eqwader™ 1600 Neoprene Wader 3.0 to be the most dependable wader on the market. To achieve this, we took our construction above and beyond the competition and covered ALL external seams with a unique LIQUID SEAM WELD and ALL internal seams with extra-wide WATERPROOF SEAM-SEAL TAPE. Other waders on the market only use one of these methods, or they only apply them to “critical” seams around the knees and crotch. As waterfowl hunters exposed to the worst elements day-in and day-out, aren’t all seams on a wader critical? We utilized BOTH methods on ALL seams in addition to traditional seam gluing and stitching to ensure maximum top-to-bottom protection not found anywhere else.
• 3.5mm neoprene
• 1600 gram Thinsulate® boot
This boot is nearly half the weight of our old neoprene boot (was 5.4lbs. now 2.6lbs.) yet, still delivers 1600 grams of insulation. The boot is also designed with a snugger ankle fit to prevent pull out when bogged down in mud. The Buckshot Mudder sole design will deliver that extra traction when you need it. With the iconic Drake logo built into the side, you’re going to absolutely love these boots!

YAO MING WADERS
These waders are high quality and I love the pockets on the chest but they are not made for a "regular" person at all! I ordered a 12 boot regular and I am 6'1" 180 lbs so I expected them to fit sort of loose but I would have to gain 200+ lbs to even remotely fit into them. They are not true to size so be very cautious when ordering them. I don't even think most NFL offensive lineman would fit into these.
Great waders but large sizing
by Logan Baker
Overall I love these waders. Pocket placement is nice and seem durable so far. Only thing to keep in mind is the sizing. I am typically a size 10 boot but in these a size 10 boot was what seemed to be a foot taller than me and I am 5’9”. I ended up swapping out for a size 8 boot that fits just right.
2 stars for 2 years. 3rd season and leak Everywhere!
Don’t waste your money on Banded Waders
by Henry M.
These waders are great! Yes they are a little big but the manufacturer does that on purpose so you can layer up and still fit into these. They are extremely warm, and I’ve used them for an entire season and not had any issues whatsoever, apart from being too warm on occasion! Definitely recommend!!!
Great waders, good price!
I used these all last season and they worked great, through ice and all! Kept me warm and would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a pair of waders!

Love the newer design of the boots. The straps work better then older 2.0. Only complaint I have is I ordered most instead of lst. But still a great product.
No leaks after 8 years!
by Jimmy P
I’ve had these waders for a little over 8 years and still no leaks! I hunt 10-15 days a year in a mixture of timber, reservoirs, and field blinds. Hose them down, let dry, and store in wader bag in the closet after every hunt. Longest lasting waders I’ve ever had.
