I was very impressed with the quality of my new Drake waders. It is obvious the Drake team put a lot of thought into this version of their new waders. Thanks
Best wader for waterfowl hunting I've ever owned!
by Don S
I've had these for several weeks but was finally able to put them to the test in sub-freezing temperatures. They were terrific! This was my first opportunity to give them a real test and I'm very pleased. I wore them several hours to launch our boat, set decoys, sit for hours in the blind, and then reverse the order . I wore these with a medium weight sock and thermal underwear, They fit well and were comfortable in and out of the water. I'm 5'-7", medium build, and I was concerned they might be too tall but they stopped at a comfortable height and allowed a warm vest inside and fit well with my layered waterfowl jackets over the top. The best feature, however, is the zippered front. Not only does it provide for use without removing all your top outwear, zipping them down also makes them relatively easy to slip on and off compared to non zipper models I've owned before. The only improvement I'd suggest would be to extend the camo to just above the knee area.
Fit good but zippers didn’t last
The waders fit and wore really good. The only complaint is that two side zippers broke with in my first two hunts with them. Lost some expensive shotgun shells.
Having the zippered front is so nice especially being a full figured fella like myself! Lol Boots are comfortable and kept my feet nice and warm even after having to break some ice and 20 plus mph winds. Do not hesitate to get a pair of these!
