Just like the Earth's equator is the dividing line between two distinct temperate zones, Drake 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. This 1/4 Zip Refuge Eqwader provides maximum breathability below and the Refuge HS fabric above, forming the ultimate wader jacket, adding a whole new level of comfort and performance when wearing chest waders.
Lanyard and Band pictured is not included. Bands only come when you hunt and harvest waterfowl that have been banded.
100% waterproof/windproof/breathable Refuge HS fabric on upper body and arms
Warm & Dry. The designated zones on the Eqwader help to control over heating. Would like to see pitzips added. Recommend for use in early season during the morning flights and maybe into the early late season. Fit is roomy enough that a puffer vest or jacket can be used underneath for added warmth. So far have used it with a base layer, fleece & down puffer vest in mid 20f temps and was very comfortable. Did use a , puffer vest in mid-20 temps wit some wind and was comfortable with addition of a neck gaiter. Like it so much that I bought the next model up for late season.
beautiful design. comfort is great. fit the way i expected. quality of construction initially seems good, only time will tell. would buy again. only draw back is the noise made from material during arm movement.
