Ladies’ LST Eqwader 3-in-1 Coat Product Review


As an avid waterfowl hunter, the importance of having a warm but functional jacket is a priority. While waterfowl hunting, a good portion of the time you are in a blind of some sort. Whether that be a blind where you are sitting up or laying down, there is a lot of movement that is required and you don’t want your gear getting in the way when it’s time to sit up, pop up in the blind and shoot.

I was having a constant battle of trying to stay warm during the subzero wind chills while hunting on the wide-open Niagara River in January. The last thing I wanted to happen was a flock of Canvasbacks coming into the decoys and me not being able to shoot accurately due to having a bulky jacket getting in the way of shouldering my gun properly.

The Lady Drake LST Eqwader 3-in-1 Coat has been a real life-saver when out waterfowl hunting. Drake Waterfowl designed this jacket with the lady waterfowler in mind. This jacket is by far the most effective and versatile women’s hunting jacket that I have owned. There are actually 5 different ways to wear this jacket, making it so versatile and effective throughout mid-season into late season.

You can wear the jackets combined, the shell alone or the liner alone. What I find to be a great option is wearing the liner under my bibs and then the shell over top. I am able to get the same warmth from the jacket and it’s fully functional. All of the ladies at Huntress View agree that having this option is great.

What’s nice about having the option to separate the layers is during decoy setting and picking up it’s easy to shed the top shell if you get warm. The shell also has tons of pockets for extra shells and a call den to keep your calls warm so they don’t freeze.

You can see the green call resting in the "Call Den" of the jacket, and Heidi's hand is in the "Shell Pocket".

The liner jacket has a call den as well, and zip- off sleeves so it can be worn as a vest. (See below).
