1 Drake Guardian Elite 4-in-1 Chest Waders Men's

Drake Guardian Elite 4-in-1 Chest Waders Men's

The Drake Guardian Elite 4-in-1 Chest Waders were overhauled with performance and function in mind to revolutionize the wader industry, the Guardian Elite 6-Layer 4-in-1 Chest Wader with Tear-Away Liner is the ultimate all-season wader built to handle any conditions thrown at it.  Drake reduced the number of needle holes by up to 75%, eliminating a large majority of potential leak points from previous models. Drake also introduced a body-mapped, tear-away insulated liner that can be removed while wearing the waders, allowing you to shed insulation once the hunt has finished before the pack out. Additionally, the protective, removable camo bib can be zipped off and separated from the base wader, resulting in a solid color wader that is perfect for fishing.

  • Insulated Duck Hunting Wader
  • Uninsulated Duck Hunting Wader
  • Insulated Non-Camo Fishing Wader
  • Uninsulated Non-Camo Fishing Wader

What Customers Are Saying

TOO BIG

These waders were marked "14 regular". But they were way too big. They have a 44" inseam. The waist belt was at my chest. And the suspender buckles were over my head. There was enough room inside for two of me with the liner. I am 6'2" and 200 lbs. That is not a regular! Midway gave me a gift card for making this purchase. But when I returned them, they would not cancel the gift card, so I had to pay for a gift card that I didn't want.

What Customers Are Saying

These are NOT insulated waders.

I ordered these waders and they are not what Midway is selling them as. They say that they are insulated but when they arrived they are uninsulated and Midway isn't willing to do anything about it. I would purchase them elsewhere.
