Drake Waterfowl's patented Eqwader design is now available in a late-season model. This Deluxe Quarter-Zip version offers advanced features not found on the standard LST Eqwader, including a removable hood, Heat-Escape Vents under the arms, a Call Separator, and Deep Water Handwarmer Pockets. The lower body is constructed of 400-gram interlock soft-shell fabric backed by a 400-gram pile fleece lining for warmth.
Drake's 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 fleece on the lower torso is 15 times more breathable than the upper waterproof 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.
