EST Refuge Eqwader Two-Tone Button Up
With functionality that is as contrasting as its colors, there is no mistaking what this shirt was designed to do. Waterproof protection on top with maximum breathability on bottom delivers optimal comfort in the warm early season. This shirt is equipped with Instinctive Features to secure your calls, hunting license, keys, and other essential gear for easy access above waders.
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.
The EST (Early Season Technology) Series is designed for warmer weather where you don’t want to overdress but protection from the elements is still required. The EST line consists of options to manage moisture, prevent overheating, and even waterproof/breathable outerwear built for mild early season temperatures.
