DRYFT S14 Adrenaline Wader

 

The new DRYFT S14 Adrenaline series wader feature a redesigned lower for more abrasion resistance and durability, new neoprene gravel guards, plus a few choice upgrades. More pockets, a new durable all five-layer lower design from the waist down, added D rings for all your fancy tools, rubber soles for added grip and durability (and because they look pretty sweet), and more make this well rounded wader even better.

 

Made with one clear mission in mind; To blur the lines between design and performance at an affordable price. The DRYFT S14 fishing wader features high tech, breathable five-layer and three-layer 100% waterproof DWR (Durable Water Repellent) coated fabric.  The DRYFT S14 waders meet your on the water demands, and excel at keeping you dry and comfortable all day with the extra features you’d expect of much more expensive fishing waders.

 

Fit and Features

The DRYFT S14 waders start with loads of storage pockets and adjustable straps, belt, and upper drawstring to customize the fit to your body. A heavy duty five-layer lower protects the parts of the wader that get the most abuse; the legs, knees, and seat. Contoured and flexible knees give freedom of movement allowing you to walk, run, crouch, wade, stumble, and crawl easily without restricted movement. The strong and durable five-layer lower from the waist down includes a single vertical seam design with seams running up the outside of the legs to eliminate seam abrasion when walking.

 

What about staying dry?

Breathable, 20,000mm DWR coated waterproof polyester fabric combined with NoLeak™ taped seams bring the waterproofing to the next level. To top it off, seam ends and edges are double taped a second time to keep the water where the fish are.

 

Finally, DRYFT S14 waders are value priced to save you some coin and leave enough skrilla in your pocket to buy gas, beer, and tackle or flies.

    I am a 5’8 female and the size small waders fit great and are super comfortable with total maneuverability. Not stiff or restrictive at all. I completely recommend these.

  2. Rated 5 out of 5

    I have been wearing waders for 100+ days for the last 15 years. I’ve probably worn a wader from every company you can think of. After receiving my new adrenalines the first thing I did was try them on , it seems my body style in other waders creates somewhat of a MC Hammer look. My Dryft Adrenalines fit like my favorite pair of jean, no excess, no oversized legs. Length is dead on. Next I checked to see how tight I was gonna have to make the suspenders. Not a single adjustment needed to be made right out of the box. I figured it was to good to be true. I got them in the water, every other pair of waders I have ever owned, I would always get water I call water suck, the legs get so tight it feels like they are gonna cut off circulation. Not in the adrenaline, kept me dry, comfortable, the booties didn’t bunch in my boots. As a competitive fishermen, and a guide. I will forever only wear Dryft Waders. Excellent job guys , keeping coming up with new product. You have a customer for life!!!!

    This is by far my favorite pair of waders. The fit is great and the quality is top notch. I love the fact that you can adjust the waders around the very top for a closer fit. The waterproof pocket is very convenient and the had warmer pockets are great! I see no reason to ever buy another brand. I am that happy with my new drift adrenaline waders. Not to mention the very first time out I landed the first steelhead of the year 10 min into there maiden voyage so I’m thinking that they are my lucky waders aswell:)
    There customer service is awesome and they answered all of my questions before I made my purchase. Also shipping is lightning fast! Buy these waders and you won’t be disappointed, especially for $199 bucks!

    I love these waders. I ordered the S14 adrenaline waders before they were out and had to wait a a bit for them but they were worth the wait! Very comfortable and got lots of looks from my fellow fisherpeople! I passed on the info to them and hopefully they will order a pair. Love them!!

    Best waders i have ever worn. I use them surfcasting for stripers and the fit is perfect. They take up little space when im not using them, so they’re always in my truck for the next session. Great product and great price.

    Just got back from my first experience in my new S14’s, a week on the Bighorn and they performed flawlessly. They are the most comfortable waders I’ve ever owned. I’m 6’1″ 175 lbs and the ML were a great fit, not too bulky like most other waders I’ve had in the past. Booty size has always been the restrictive feature. I wear size 12 and to get that fit in most other brands I would have to order large or even extra large to get the booty size I needed and then of course I could swim in the waders. Your 10-11 boot size with the ability to go a 1/2 – 1 size up or down was comfortable enough to wear all day long, although I would appreciate a slightly larger booty. Late fall and early spring with extra socks might cramp the feet a bit. The quality of the workmanship appears first rate. If they hold up over time you have a definite winner. I’d highly recommend the S14 Adrenalines.

    So far so good. I’ve had them for a week now and have been in the water with them nearly every day guiding. First trip out with them it was a scorching 35 degrees to start the day. These waders keep me dry and warm. And the hand warmers come in clutch.

    I ordered my S14 Wader in January and had to wait for a while due to back order. Nick provided excellent customer service and kept me posted with delivery status. When I finally received my wader, immediately I knew it was worth the wait.
    The quality of this wader is compatible with a lot of high end waders in the market but Dryft’s are definitely affordable. I only wore it a few times in the summer and only had the chance to truly test the wader out during this fall, in the wet and cold West Coast Vancouver weather. It’s very comfortable and kept me dry.
    I would highly recommend Dryft to anyone looking for a great product with a reasonable price.

    Purchased the S14’s last year and of all the other brands I’ve tried, Dryft’s have been my best pair to date. Short and stocky, their stout sizes fit me perfectly.
    Very comfortable and forgiving. You have my highest recommendation!

    First off the shipping speed is unreal I ordered them monday and received them on a Wednesday. The first outing I had with them was on the green river in wyoming. The slim fit legs are awesome I would usually walk out of the river with balloon legs in my caddis waders. The booties fit well. All the storage on these is almost enough to not need a pack. The wading belt is a great touch. Having the belt loops makes a huge difference as well. They are very comfortable and easy to move in. Gravel guards stayed put the whole time which is something my old waders never did. I’m very happy with the purchase it was between these and a pair of simms freestones and these had twice the features. I’m glad I went to dryft for my waders. Awesome product guys I’m anticipating the zip up version.

    • Tyler, thanks for reviewing your new waders! Glad to hear you’re getting out on the river!

    I waited for 2 years too find my next pair of waders and within minutes after seeing these on the website I knew they were the ones for me. I’ve been out 4 times in the 2 weeks I have had them and they are by far the best waders I have ever had. They keep me bone dry from both the water and sweat. The durable construction gives me peace of mind when I am waist deep in frigid New Hampshire rivers. The 2xl is perfect for my 6’2 205lb frame with size 13 feet. I 100% recommend Dryft s14 adrenaline waders.

  13. Rated 5 out of 5

    As a bigger person 6’2″ and 315 lbs. It has always been a struggle to find waders that fit correctly. Another problem I run across is very little room in the calf portion of the legs for heavier undergarments for winter fishing (it doesn’t help that the circumference of the calf muscles are 22″) but the S14 waders fit me good, even in my legs and are nice looking waders and keep me warm and dry. I have had many fisherman ask what kind of waders I was wearing while on the river. A++ from me.

    These waders are awesome! I’ve owned many different waders including full neoprene’s and I must say, these are just as warm in cold temperatures. I have so much maneuverability in these bad boys I could probably karate kick a fat steelhead in the lip. Keep up the good work and I look forward to the next line of fishing apparel to come out. Tight lines!

    I have not yet fished them, I will update when I do.

    With that said, I feel compelled to write something. I’m headed to AK (two week Kanektok float) in 5 days and recently fished my high-end but heavily worn waders only to find they are leaking in like 7 places. Both feet wet after 2 hours on the river.

    I surveyed the interwebs and found DRYFT. I pulled the trigger. I contacted the team to let them know of my predicament. 48 hours later the S14s were in my living room. 1/3rd the price of my high-end leakers. These things are feature packed and look frickin bullet proof.

    Phenomenal customer service. Ridiculously fast shipping. Impeccable look, fit and finish.

    Thank you to the DRYFT team, looking forward to updating the review in a couple weeks.

    Can’t say enough good things about these waders. After cashing in my two year old cheap-o leaky waders, it was time to step up my game. Reviewed the mega bucks brands and could not get myself to spend more than necessary to own a good quality pair of waders. Purchased on a Thursday morning and received the waders the next day (very impressive). Was able to take them down to the river and get some Chinook blood on them. Very comfortable and durable material on these and feel like they will last as long as they are taken care of. Love the built in belt setup and waterproof chest pocket zipper! Trust in Dryft products, they are the real deal with a killer business model and super responsive with their customers.

    I loved mine for one season. I abused them tromping through the rivers, making my own trails, getting in and out of the drift boat, and anything else you can think of when it comes to back country winter steelhead fishing.

    The cut and style of the waders are great. For the price they are very durable, but I did have to patch them in a couple spots after getting a few leaks. Like I said above though, I did abuse these things.

    There however is one big complaint. The gravel guards SUCK! The waders are awesome, but the gravel guards tear with ease. I tore my right one my first time on the river. After one season in these waders I might as well cut the gravel guards off completely. Ultimately I made the switch to Simms, but for the price of these waders, they are truly awesome waders. I wish I didn’t have a leak in them because I’d let them me my loaner paid for the boat.

    • Hi Issac,
      Thanks for the review and feedback. Glad to hear you’ve been using them to the fullest extent possible. We’ve made a couple changes to design on the the latest 2015 version of the S14 waders, which include an all 5 layer lower from the waist down to increase durability with a heavier duty lower and simplified seam structure in the legs, and we’ve also reinforced the stitching on the gravel guards to make them more durable. Feedback is important to us, so thank you for taking the time to leave a review.
      Tight lines,
      -Nick, co-owner

    Following up from my pre-review written in August. Wore them on an unguided 10-day fish/camp/float explosion on the Kanektok.

    As I mentioned in my picture comment on FB, performed flawlessly, 10 days x ~17 hours/day. I don’t even think I can say that about my G4s, and that was with making fires and walking through the bush every night to collect wood etc. In and out of the raft countless times, wading through deep and fast water at times. Bone dry. To be honest, over the course of the trip, I spent literally hours getting/keeping fires going, knees grinding into the gravel. I don’t even think waders were meant for that but still not even a pin hole. Great product, phenomenal value. Thanks again.

    I Love These Waders! I ordered these and needed them in hurry for a upcoming fishing trip after my second pair of field and streams sprung a leak in less than a month. Needless to say when they arrived on saturday after being ordered on thursday i couldnt be happier. Ive been out in them twice already and am very pleased with the quality and construction. No leaks, fit is very comfortable and they look great. Thank you Dryft for a sick wader!

    • Thanks for the review Mike! I’m glad you’re loving your new waders!

    Living on the Texas coast and ordering these waders from up north I was definitely skeptical at first. Upon arrival, the waders looked top notch quality and very durable. Since putting these waders through a brutal duck season and winter big trout tournament season, they are still in perfect condition. All printed logos are still in tact, zero leaks, and they clean up very easily. I love how I can adjust the shoulder straps so easily if i’m wading in deeper water and need to tighten them up. The huge front pocket is awesome and allows me to carry some different lures with me without toting a big wading belt around. I look forward to sticking with this company for a long time to come and can’t wait to get my hands on their new wading jacket. Top notch quality so far, and I think it will stay that way!

    Got my S14’s very quickly. Customer service and communication is great.
    I love the fit. As mentioned in previous posts, the leg fit is the best I’ve seen or experienced, not baggy at all.
    The 5 layer bottoms feel pretty bulletproof. The waders simply feel to the touch more heavy duty, but without feeling clunky.
    The neoprene wading belt is awesome and far superior to nylon. It snugs your waders comfortably without feeling too tight.
    The D rings are great to attach a retractor with nippers or hemos.
    The waders look really good too.
    The only complaint would be the gravel guard tore pretty easily on a chunk of snow already. The material doesn’t seem tough enough.
    Overall the best bang for your buck. $220 waders that feel like $400 waders.
    Just wish I knew Kraken was on the way before I bought these :-/

    after 20 years on the water and spending thousands on the big name brands, i saw an ad for dryft and i started doing my research. they were a local company, a small company, and a company dedicated to customer service. i went to purchase the s14’s and they were out of stock but a message on the site said they would be back in stock in a few weeks. boy… am i glad i waited. 2 weeks later i contacted the team on their FB page to ask about their fits and got a reply with in about 20 minutes. 2 days later they were in my hands. in the 3 months that ive had them ive put nearly 150 hours into them and they are FANTASTIC! i have countless miles trekking into my favorite NW fishing spots (lots of sticker bushes!) and ive had no issues what so ever.

    id also like to add that i was contacted shorty after my purchase to make sure i was satisfied with my purchase. in not someone who is brand loyal but when it comes to Dryft, they will be the only waders i own from now on!

    i would HIGHLY RECOMMEND these to any client of mine

    cons: only one. i wear a taller boot (korker whitehorse) and the gravel guard needs to start about 1-2″ higher on the leg to get the proper fit.

    Just got my new waders they fit like a glove. I ‘ am a big boy and they fit great. The shipping was very fast. You will have to sign for them so make sure someone is there when they arrive. I will be on the Deschutes soon, and Montana this summer. Should be the ticket. Very good quality. I really like the belt loops, I lose the belts all the time.

    I ordered my S14 waders late last Sunday and received them the following Thursday, super fast shipping. Took them to my local fly shop to try on boots with them and they were the talk of the shop.
    I used the sizing guide on the website and my waders fit perfectly right out of the box. I have yet to get them in the water but I am sure they will perform even better then they look.
    Thank you Dryft for providing such a quality product and excellent service at such a resonable price.

    I purchased the S14 Adrenaline Waders a couple of months ago and have been fishing approximately three to five days a week. These waders have held up awesome so far, the waders fit amazing and let you “breathe” or move around accordingly and aren’t restrictive by any means. On cold rainy days they are insulated enough to still keep you warm and the hand warming pouch comes in very handy. Yet, on hot summer days the waders still keep you cool and comfortable. I would recommend these waders to anyone and would definitely buy again.

    Well after 3 years of owning the best pair of waders I’ve ever owned it’s time for a new pair of Dryfts. For the last 3 years I have beat and tested the s14 waders. From elk hunting, clam digging, running hounds for coons, trapping beavers and Oh yeah also fishing too. These are the best hands down waders on the market to date. After 20 years of winter steelhead fishing in the pacnw and buying a pair of waders every year, I found myself in a pair of these 3 years ago this October. From the mouth of the Columbia to Cape flattery I’ve hit remote waters and put them to the test. I can’t wait to buy a center zip this fall and use them for my first year of guiding winter steelhead. And also I want to give out a big thanks for the customer service, you guys are top-notch

    I have a pair of S14’s and so far I love them. I was fishing a couple north coast rivers over the wknd and with the recent rains things were wet, high, and fast. When getting out of the drift boat i have total confidence in staying dry. I really like the dark color because I am a bait fisherman and I tend to end up wearing a fair amount of eggs by days end. They don’t stand out against the color and wash off easily. Live my new waders

    Great waders. Nothing the DRYFT folks or the other customer reviewers say about the waders is an exaggeration. Great fit, materials, and workmanship. All the pockets and the hand warmers are a real plus. The waders also configure easily to a waist height for warmer weather fishing. The waders are head and shoulders better than other waders at twice the price. Keep these folks in business.

    Wanting to update my review. I’ve had my s14’s for over a year and I put nearly 40+ hour a week in them. By far, the best waders I’ve ever owned. I’ve destroyed 2 pairs of high end korkers in he same amount of time yet the waders have been bullet proof!

    I’ve had my s14s for close to 2 years now and I will never buy a different brand as long as you guys are around. I have beat the hell out of these waders hiked miles in all terrain. I got tired of buying cheap waders and I couldn’t see spending 450 on simms just for the name. Dryft waders are the way to go.

    Very unimpressed. I’ve had for these for two years and used them around 10 times. The gravel guards have fallen apart, I’ve had multiple leaks (several in the first year that required me to send them back). Customer service was good when I sent them back but overall these have been a let down.

    6’3” 200lbs size 10.5 foot. I have always had trouble finding a wader that fits properly. I usually end up getting a large in order to fit my inseam, and find them way too bulky. And the booty is always a struggle to get on and off my foot. Usually that is where they fail first, from tearing while removing a sweaty foot.
    I end up ordering the Large Long and am very pleased with the fit. The booty slides on and off with extreme ease. I couldn’t be more happy about that. The overall fit is comfortable and the material feels bullet proof. These waders are the best I have owned to date and am confident I will get years of service out of them. I already recommended to a close friend so he also purchased them.

    The wader feels comfortable, own the s14 for 3 weeks now, it did kept me dry in any weather. BUT the gravel cover started to rip after being only used 3 weekends. AND the gravel hook cut my shoe laces!
    I’m a bit disappointed.
