Drake LST Heavyweight Eqwader Deluxe Quarter-Zip
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 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. – See more at: https://www.drakewaterfowl.com

About Drake Waterfowl
In late 2002 Drake set out to create the best waterfowl hunting clothes on the market. They knew immediately that a standard warm coat wouldn’t be near enough to impress the hard-core hunters that spend day after day in the field. They needed something to meet every condition a hunter can face… they needed a “SYSTEM”. This was the beginning of Drake Waterfowl Systems.
With hunting season ranging anywhere from 60 degrees to minus 10 degrees, it is all too easy to over-dress or under-dress. Over-dressing not only leads to over-heating, it also hinders mobility, which can become very aggravating when trying to make an overhead shot or simply walking to the blind. Under-dressing can be even more punishing. If any hunter has ever made an early morning boat ride in freezing temps without a windproof coat, they know exactly what miserable is. With all the different changes in the weather, there is another factor all other companies seem to overlook and that is YOU. Are you an inactive, active, or hyperactive hunter? Some people are “hot-natured” while some are “cold-natured”.
To answer all these questions and solve the obvious problems, Drake Waterfowl came up with a “SYSTEM”. Separated into three main categories, there is EST™ (Early Season Technology), MST™ (Mid Season Technology) and LST™ (Late Season Technology).
