Our patented Eqwader™ technology revolutionized waterfowl clothing and has been a core piece of the Drake Waterfowl™ brand since day one. Just like the Earth's equator is the dividing line between two distinct temperate zones, we noticed a similar dividing line on the body when you are wearing chest waders: cold, hostile conditions above the waders, and warm, humid conditions underneath the waders. Our unique combination of waterproof/breathable fabric on the sleeves and upper body matched with ultra-breathable fleece on the lower body introduced a whole new level of comfort and performance when wearing chest waders. The moisture-wicking polyester Double Down fabric on the lower torso is 15 times more breathable than the upper waterproof Guardian Flex™ material and works to prevent the build-up of perspiration and moisture vapor.  These dual zones of protection keep you dry both inside and outside your waders.


• 100% waterproof/windproof/200 gram 100% polyester synthetic double down front and back
• 100% Polyester high gauge interlock stretch breathable endurance fabric on lower sides


• 2 Time & Motion™ Magnattach™ call and whistle pockets
• 2 Time & Motion™ zippered chest pockets
• Adjustable neoprene cuffs
• Reinforced HD3™ elbow/forearm protection

Poorly designed and now returning

by Adam

First off I love my other Drake jackets and gear. I was super excited to see a wading jacket that was not fleece so it didn’t crawl up in the waders when walking. Worked great.

But, the sleeve cuffs are a horrible design. The strap to tighten is to small and the plastic piece that allows you to tighten the cuff does not stay in place and turns sideways allowing the cuff to not fold on itself and creates a gap in the cuff. This makes for an uncomfortable fit and does not slide in gloves smoothly or keep your whole wrist warm. The double sided hook portion of the Velcro also catches on everything all the time!

Secondly, the collar is not camo is mind blowing to me. If anywhere I want camo it’s on top of the jacket. Now I just have a dark brown Circle around my neck clearly visible to working birds.

I love the feel and warmth of this jacket. Fix sleeve cuffs and collar and you have a winner. I’ll be returning this product and hoping the 2021 version has these improvements.

No matter how cold the weather can be, or how strong the winds blow, Drake Guardian, and all other series they have, will keep a freakin Eskimo sweatin! I will not buy anything else for my hunting apparel, other than DRAKE. Been rockin the Old School Drake since the first round of Eqwaders came out years ago.
