Completely reinvented from the ground up, the Guardian Elite™ Insulated Breathable Chest Wader offers industry-leading features and innovation in a comfortable, warm, and dry package. Field tested by our best-in-class Guardian Elite™ Product Testing Team, the new Guardian Elite™ Insulated Breathable Chest Wader resets the standard of how a wader should perform in the field.


NEW Buckshot Mudder Boot

Drawing from both customer and Guardian Elite' Product Testing Team comments and suggestions, we've developed an all-new, completely re-engineered boot from the ground up. With optimal performance and comfort in mind, the boot is nearly half the weight of previous models (5.4 lbs. to 2.6 lbs.). Maintaining 1600g Thinsulates' insulation throughout, the new Buckshot Mudder Boot also provides critical heat retention in extreme temperatures. A snugger, more streamlined, ankle and true-to-fit boot prevents feet from slipping or dislodging in muddy environments, while the Buckshot Mudder sole design ensures you can tackle any terrain with ease. The right boot features the iconic Drake' logo built into the side.


NEW No-Buckle, X-Crossing-Back Shoulder Straps

The new comfortable, no-buckle shoulder straps eliminate interference when shouldering a gun. The X-Crossing-Back design provides additional support and comfort, and prevents the straps from slipping off the shoulder during the hunt. Drawing on customer feedback, we've created a new memory cinching system. No more remembering where you last secured the strap for that perfect fit. Find your ideal adjustable fit, cinch the hook and loop straps once at that location, and hunt without having to adjust them again. 


NEW Additional Size Options

Now available in 4 sizes: Short & Slim, Regular, Stout, and King Built to accommodate any height and weight combination, the new sizes guarantee a custom fit no matter your body type.

NEW Improved Materials & Construction

The most important component a wading hunter expects out of his waders is for them to perform without leaking. If you are tired of getting wet in the field season after season, look no further. Despite having the lowest wader return rate according to our dealers in comparison to competitors, we continue to enhance the quality of our materials and construction to develop the best waders on the market. To us, good ain't good enough. The new Guardian Elite' Breathable Wader is built with a more durable, thicker, and wider seam tape that creates an even stronger bond to the material, which helps prevent lifting and creasing, thus ensuring against seam leaks. 



Large Front Cargo Pouch

Designed for storage of items like gloves, neck gaiters, face masks and snacks.  The large front cargo pouch is an  ideal location to keep you valuables high and dry. 

Vertical Call Pocket with Magnattach™

Specifically engineered for quick, easy retrieval of both primary and back-up calls. The perfect solution when working dogs or picking up decoys, the Vertical Call Pocket with Magnattach assures calls are both secure and out of the way. The mesh bottom allows for additional breathability. 

Vertical Pocket with Fowl-Proof™ Zipper

Against-the-Body Handwarmer™
