Drake Clothing Company Introduces Realtree Fishing Apparel at 2018 ICAST Show

Most outdoor enthusiasts recognize the Drake name for its quality hunting apparel, especially in the waterfowl segment. Those familiar with Drake will be thrilled with its new line of Realtree Fishing apparel that boasts that same quality construction and attention to detail as it’s hunting apparel. Drake is launching its new fishing line at this year’s ICAST trade show, which will be held July 10-13, 2018, at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. ICAST is the premier showcase for the latest innovations in fishing gear, accessories and apparel.
Drake has spent the better part of the past 20 years innovating apparel to pursue a passion in the most extreme conditions found on the water. And the passion never stops. Drake has a motto around the office, GUNS DOWN – RODS UP™. When the Drake family puts its Guns Down in January, they pick Rods Up in February, just in time for the late February/early March spawn. The majority of Drake’s loyal customers live by that same GUNS DOWN – RODS UP™ motto. That is why it only made sense for Drake to deliver the same innovation to the hard core angler, driven by that same passion.
The Drake Realtree Fishing apparel will no doubt be a show-stopper at the upcoming ICAST show.
Time & Motion™ Intelli-Suite™ Pocket System - The Time & Motion™ Intelli-Suite™ Pocket System, available in a variety of Realtree Fishing pattern colors, boasts highly functioning pockets designed for the angler. Every square inch of this coat has been engineered to make every second of your time on the water as highly efficient and productive as possible. The Intelli Suite features cargo and bait pockets for those specific purposes. Leader and terminal tackle pouches are separate and dedicated, just like those for license, keys and cell phones. The hand-warmer pockets are nice and warm, placed out of the way in the most comfortable position possible, which is why we call this group of pockets an Intelli-Suite. Drake’s trademarked Time & Motion kicks in due to left-to-right/ right-to-left hand loading into a well-placed vertical pocket opening. The jacket features a carabiner clip with adjustable tether. Additional features include a removable hood with built-in fleece facemask, kill-switch D-rings, a lower back XXL cargo pocket and tailgate dry seat system.
