The LST Heavyweight Eqwader™ 1/4 Zip delivers exceptional warmth without adding bulk or weight, making it practical and comfortable for wearing under waders. The interlock soft-shell exterior fabric is backed by a 400-gram high pile fleece interior that traps warm air inside the garment, yet is breathable enough to let unwanted moisture vapor escape.
Our patented Eqwader™ technology (patent #7,318,239) 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.
