    Default Drake Waterfowl clothing

    Is the Quality worth the cost or is there a better value out there?

    I have the pullover wader jacket and am very satisfied with it. mine is two years old and I would say the quality is excellent. It was a birthday gift so I can't comment on the cost.

    I have the Drake MST wader pullover, got it on sale, had it for 3 years, it has held up well...their sizing tends to be about a half size small..I also own a pair of Drake mudder slip on boots, probably the best dog training boot I have ever owned, even wear them goose hunting too. Drake hats are mediocre and run small, my .02

    I would stay away from their waders as there are better values at far less cost. I just received my 4th pair last month in the last two years because all of them have leaked. The pair I received in October was the version 2 but leaked on the first hunt. Drake has been good about replacing them but for the money you can buy 2 pair of Roger's waders which are pretty nice as well.

    Their other clothing has held up really well. I have a 3-1 plus 2 coat that is probably 5-6 years old and in good shape. Also have a LST pullover that gets warn a lot during duck season and has held up great as well as being very warm and comfortable.

    Mack's PW is running some sales on Drake gear right now and there are some pretty good prices.

    I was talking to someone in Mack's Pw the other day and he informed me that drake merch was going to he** in a hand basket quick (quality wise). That being said I haven't conducted any research of my own and I like my drake pullover I bought 3-4 years ago very much.

    Love all mine. Wearing either the MST pullover or vest almost everyday. Also have the jacket and it's warm without being bulky and the shell itself is of good design and wearable by itself when you just need a little outer cover with some pockets.
