Good advice. Thank you sir
I have had three Drake jackets and never have had an issue with quality. Anything leaks at some point.
I have the 3 in 1 LST Drake jacket for 3 seasons now. I have no complaints so far and I hunt in rain/ snow and everything else. you have to remember that old saying too " if you're not wet and not cold, then you're not duck hunting"
Is it too bulky to be worn under waders? Seems like a big heavy coat
I wear the wader jacket underneath my waders, and the shell jacket over the waders and hasn't been do bad. Only little problem I have had is when I'm in a layout blind, trying to shoulder my gun, and will get caught sometimes bringing it up
This may sound crazy but I usually don't wear my top layer when setting decoys or picking them.
Me either. Whether its big game or waterfowl, I'm usually in a base layer and maybe a midlayer for that early morning work. When I settle in to start hunting, I'll layer up then.
The drake jackets are fine, not a rain jacket. I've had two 1/4 zips over the last 10 years and only had to replace one cause I caught it on fire trying to dry it out after I fell in. They are a decent outlayer if you aren't hunting real cold weather. They are slimmer and tuck into waders nicely, in my experience.
I picked up a used duck oven (sitka) from someone on here last year and used it when glassing out west this year. What a jacket. Can't wait to use it duck hunting this year.
Save you time on Drake, I gave all of mine away, buy a Sitka and be done with your search. Changed over to all Sitka from Cabela's, Drake, Columbia, etc., Sitka has "real" Gortex no imitation.
Yeah two newborn twins and I'm a teacher. No money for Sitka. Unless I don't buy anything waterfowl related for the next 3-4 years combined lol.
I have the 1/4 zip MST pullover with the outer material on the whole thing, it's not 1/2 fleece like some of their stuff. No issues but it's too warm(for me) to wear when walking in or setting up. I only wear it when it's really cold but it works well. I bought it on clearance for about $40 with a regular price of around $120-$150. Search around, you can find great deals if you're patient.
