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. The number of needle holes is reduced by up to 75%, eliminating a large majority of potential leak points from previous models. Drake 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.
This systems approach results in 4 various ways to wear the wader:
- Insulated Duck Hunting Wader
- Uninsulated Duck Hunting Wader
- Insulated Non-Camo Fishing Wader
- Uninsulated Non-Camo Fishing Wader
This new wader provides 6 levels of protection to keep you warm and dry throughout the year: The base fishing wader utilizes Drake's Guardian Elite 3-Layer Pro Waterproof/Breathable wader fabric. The outer protective, removable camo bib delivers 2 more layers of protection, plus HD3 reinforced fabric placed over the boots, knees, and seat area extends the life of your waders, year after year.
The Guardian Elite 6-Layer 4-in-1 Chest Wader with Tear-Away Liner is backed by our 2-year repair or replace "Strap-to-Sole" warranty plus our "Extended Life" USA repair service facility on all Guardian Elite waders only.
