Completely reinvented from the ground up, the Guardian Elite Insulated Breathable Chest Wader offers industry-leading features and innovation in a comfortable, warm, and dry package. Field tested by Drake's Product Testing Team, the Guardian Elite Insulated Breathable Chest Wader resets the standard of how a wader should perform in the field. With optimal performance and comfort in mind, the boot is nearly half the weight of previous models. Maintaining 1600g Thinsulate insulation throughout, the Buckshot Mudder Boot provides critical heat retention in extreme temperatures. A snugger, more streamlined, ankle and true-to-fit boot prevents feet from slipping or dislodging in muddy environments, while the Buckshot Mudder sole design ensures you can tackle any terrain with ease.
The comfortable, no-buckle shoulder straps eliminate interference when shouldering a gun. The X-Crossing-Back design provides additional support and comfort, and prevents the straps from slipping off the shoulder during the hunt. Drawing on customer feedback, Drake created a new memory cinching system. No more remembering where you last secured the strap for that perfect fit. Find your ideal adjustable fit, cinch the hook and loop straps once at that location, and hunt without having to adjust them again.
The most important component a wading hunter expects out of his waders is for them to perform without leaking. If you are tired of getting wet in the field season after season, look no further. The Guardian Elite Breathable Waders are built with a more durable, thicker, and wider seam tape that creates an even stronger bond to the material, which helps prevent lifting and creasing, thus ensuring against seam leaks.
Designed for storage of items like gloves, neck gaiters, face masks and snacks, the large front cargo pouch is an ideal location to keep your valuables hight and dry. The Vertical Call Pocket with Magnattach is specifically engineered for quick, easy retrieval of both primary and back-up calls. The perfect solution when working dogs or picking up decoys, the Vertical Call Pocket assures calls are both secure and out of the way. The mesh bottom allows for additional breathability.
A vertical pocket with Fowl-Proof Zipper is an ideal, water-resistant location for storing valuables suck as licenses, keys, wallets, and smart phones. The vertical design allows for easy side-to-side retrieval of valuables. Located on the back side of the front bib, the fleece-lined Against-the-Body Handwarmer utilizes natural body heat to retain warmth and lock out the cold. Constructed of neoprene, the 6 horizontal shell loops assure you have a few extra shells accessible wherever you go. The horizontal design eliminates the worry of shells falling out from the bottom of the loop.
