The Guardian Elite™ Flooded Timber Jacket - Insulated is specifically designed for the hunter who spends his days with his back against a tree. Cut 2" lower than the other jackets in anticipation of wading, we have also equipped the lower pockets with drain holes just in case the water is a little deeper than expected getting to your hole.
New Instinctive Features:
Adjustable Zip-Off hood with Built-In Face Mask - You'll never have to search for your face mask again because it's built into the hood. Ideal for long, brutal boat rides to your favorite spot. Reach up, slip on the flexible, fleece face mask, cinch down the adjustable straps for a snug fit, and go. The hood can be removed when weather conditions are favorable, eliminating any and all movement restrictions when watching ducks circle your spread.
Carabiner Clip with Adjustable Tether and Storage Pouch - When it's time to shed the Guardian Elite Flooded Timber Jacket, this special feature ensures you always have a spot to hang your jacket to keep it high and dry. The carabiner clip and adjustable tether allows the jacket to be hung on a wide variety of items and surfaces, no matter the size or height. Two layers of high-tensil strength webbing encase the 3-layer fabric, creating an incredibly strong weight bearing point. When not in use, this feature can be stored in the zippered, waterproof pouch located on the back of the jacket.
Boat Kill-Switch D-Ring - The age-old question: Where do I attach my boat's kill switch? Should I hook it to my waders? Wrap it around my wrist? We've eliminated these questions with the Boat Kill-Switch D-Ring. Double wrapped, high-tensil strength webbing secures this feature to the jacket. Simply clip the kill-switch to the d-ring, zip up the jacket, and you're ready to run.
Lower Back XXL Fowl-Proof™ Cargo Pocket - Stretching from side seam to side seam across the entire back of the jacket, this has to be the largest cargo pocket offered on the market. The Lower Back XXL Fowl-Proof™ Cargo Pocket is ideal, waterproof location for storing the removable hood, and eliminates the problem of fumbling around in the dark remembering where you put something. It is also a great spot for bulkier items that you may only need once during a hunt, like game totes, dog leads, cinch straps, and much more.
Backup / Just-in-Case Shell Loops - Built for those not-so-often scenarios when you're caught away from your blind bag, only to realize that you don't have any shells left in your shell puch. The 12 shell loops are ideal when chasing a downed bird at a distance, or for storing a 3.5" shell for that wandering Canada or Specklebelly overhead.
Time and Motion Intelli-Suite Technology:
Everything in its Place - "Saving Critical Time Through Intelligent Motion™." A waterfowl hunting jacket should have highly calculated and time-studied pocket positions, eliminating wasted movement and increasing efficiency in the field. The Time & Motion™ Intelli-Suite™ was created to do one thing: ensure that every second of your hunting experience is spent doing what you love, not fumbling around to find an item.
Time & Motion™ Magnattach™ Call & Whistle Pockets and Zippered Chest Pockets - What's new and instinctive above the chest? We've doubled the amount of pockets. Comprised of 2 inner, Fowl-Proof™ zippered chest pockets, layered under 2 external Magnattach™ pockets, this upper pocket suite is highly suitable for organizing small items on either side of the jacket, no matter which hand is dominant. Separate and quickly reach primary and back-up calls via the Magnattach™ pockets, and store valuables like smart phones, keys, wallets, and license in the waterproof zippered pockets.
Time & Motion™ Front-Load Cargo Pockets - Out with the old, in with the new. We've replaced previous cargo pouches with these spacious, streamlined pockets on the front of the body. The vertical design allows for quick and easy storage of larger items such as beanies and gloves, in addition to effortless side-to-side retrieval. Built to accommodate a large amount of cargo, these pockets stretch all the way to the side seam of the jacket. The Fowl-Proof™ waterproof zipper ensures no water reaches these valuables.
Time & Motion™ Sherpa Fleece Handwarmer Pockets - Lined with toasty warm, plush sherpa fleece. these are the warmest handwarmer pockets on the market. Strategically placed higher and further back than the shell pouches, these pockets provide comfort by allowing the arms to rest at a 90 degree angle. The sherpa fleece lining ensures optimal heat retention, keeping your trigger finger and calling hand toasty warm during extreme temperatures.
Time & Motion™ Dedicated Magnattach™ Shell Pouches - Stop fumbling around in a cargo pocket mixed with shells and cargo. While many jackets offer pockets that have multi-purpose functionality, we believe every coat needs pockets dedicated to shells only. Purposely placed on the front and center of the jacket, these pouches are located where hands instinctively reach to find shells.
Body Mapped Insulation - Engineered to combat the bone-chilling cold of wading in flooded timber environments, the Guardian Elite" Flooded Timber Jacket is body mapped to minimize bulk while maximizing mobility. The entire back panel is insulated with warm, heat-trapping Double Down™ to give your back and kidneys additional warmth, while the sides, front panels, and arms utilize our LokDown™ compacted weight synthetic down to minimize bulk while maximizing mobility without restricting motion.
Guardian Elite™ 3 Layer Pro Fabric - This is the most technologically advanced fabric we've ever offered. Guardian Elite™ 3 Layer Pro Fabric is not only our most waterproof and durable fabric, it's also our most breathable. Engineered to meet the demands of hard-working, professional guides and hunters averaging 100 days a year in the field in the worst conditions imaginable.
