Drake jacket fit?

Postby Wallew » Thu Feb 20, 2014 7:52 am

This season I bought my first piece of Drake clothing. At the beginning of the season I bought a pair of Drake fleece lined waterproof wader pants. When I bought them I thought they were nice. By the end of the season I can't say enough good things about them. They are warm, comfortable, waterproof and extremely durable, I wear them every time it go hunting, which is on average two days a week from September through February.

After this season I am in the market for a new jacket. Where I live it is a pretty good haul to a Cabelas or Pro Bass Shop. I will probably be buying online. I am 99 percent sure I will now be getting a Drake jacket. For those of you that own a Drake jacket, how does there sizing run? How is their sleeve length?

I am 6'0" and weight 225 lbs. I have a 46" chest and my arms a pretty long for my size. I typically wear a large tall or Xl.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I am 6' and about 180 and a 44 chest and wear a XL in the Drake 3-1 wader jacket. Hope that helps.

Im the same weight and height as you, no idea what my chest is, but I would imagine ours would be close. I got a Drake waterproof "hoodie" so to speek but its actually a jacket. Its nice, I like it. Its a 2Xl. The XL seamed snug on me.

Just curious... why would you need wader pants to be waterproof? Aren't you wearing waders over them anyways?
Nobody cares about your season totals.

I am pretty much the same build and went with an XXL it is not too big, I felt like the XL was a little tight when I put the gun up.

The waterproof wader pants are great. They are waterproof, fleece lined and are max 4 camo. They also have elastic stirrups and Velcro cuffs so they don't ride up and make it easier getting into waders or muck boots.

My breathable waders I wear during the early season and for some fishing are older and a little leaky. Anyone who has worn waders for enough years knows what it is like to take them off and have wet spots on your pants. I wear them under my late season neoprene waders also because they are fleece lined so they help on those icy mornings.

I don't only where them under my waders. I also where them with my muck boots or regular hunting boots when hunting fields and other areas where waders are not needed.

Huntfish12 I have seen the waterproof hoodie online and that seems to be what I may be leaning towards. I don't really like real heavy coats. I am a firm believer in layers. I think this may suit my needs pretty well.

It's not like a sweatshirt hoodie. Its actually quite a bit heavier. Like I said, it's more like a jacket then a traditional hoodie that you might ware around on a regular basis. I'm with ya on layering up, and not too big on bulky jackets. I actually didn't ware my drake hoodie much this past season due to buying some flece mocturtle neck, and a flece hoodie from macks. They really knock the wind down, and didn't create much bulk at all. I liked the jacket for situations after you've been in the water. would always find myself getting wet elbows once i was seated, from when i was leaned over sitting on a bench or a log, or in the boat.
