Drake Waterfowl® Systems MST™ Eqwader Boot-Foot Wading System™ for Men
Drake MST Wader
Features on this particular waders are nice, however the quality of the seems is subpar. My buddies all had a pair, 3 total, and every pair had seams that came apart causing leeks midway through the 1st season. For the amount you pay versus the quality you get I would buy some other pair.

I bought LSTs 3 years ago, this year I have found that the seams have been coming loose in places and now have a pair of $280 waders that fill with water. Very disappointed in the quality of Drake Waders, my hunting buddy has 2 pair of the breathable design and both developed leaks the first year. None in any of the waders are punctures that we have found, it is completely manufacturer defects which seams to be a common theme with Drake now.

Average for the price
I bought these on sale last year and have used them a handful of times. I do like the no buckle straps on the top. They fit well but are very uncomfortable at the top of the boot. Not sure if I dont have the right size but if I do much walking the top of the boots will rub my legs almost raw. Expected more for the price.

Very Nice Waders
I bought a pair of the LST waders about 3 years ago. The only thing I have a problem with but it's with all wader is that they don't make waders for tall people. I was very skeptical about buying these waders because of all the bad reviews. As I always so tho, the only people that write reviews much are the ones that are upset. I have owned other Drake products before and have never had a complaint. So I bought these. I love them. I have been in 7 degree weather and never got cold. I've stomped through briar thickets, climbed over and under trees through the swamp, waded through mud, and I have yet to see any problems with these. I've duck hunted and fished in them. I bought the 1600 gram pair so the only thing I don't recommend to do is trying to build a duck blind in 90 degree weather while wearing these. It gets really hot. haha. Just take care of them and they will last. Wash the mud off and hang them upside down. And get a good boot dryer to dry out the inside for when they fill up with sweat or rain. Good luck hunting.
