haven't tried it, but do own ice armor xtreme, and wouldn't trade it for a dang thing. spendy, but well worth the cost.

I tried on an Artic Shield jacket at the store, earlier this fall. It seemed like it would be very warm but when I moved my arms the insulation inside it made too much noise. I'm a bowhunter and to me, any noise seems to be amplified when there is a deer standing in front of you.

Has anyone tried the Actic Shield boot blanket insulators or their glove/mitt system? I need to find a way to keep my hands and feet warm when I'm out bowhunting in these temps.

The AS boots are awesome. Very warm. Haven't used the mitts... Another suggestion is to get either a ThermAmat or a scrap piece of carpet to put a barrier between the metal grate and your feet.

SnoMan,

Can't say anything about the AS glove/mitt system, but you might want to just try a muff. You clip it around your waist and can keep your hands warm in light gloves that are easier to shoot with.

You can add a charcoal handwarmer too if needed. Mine has a pocket on top that I can keep any quick necessities in also. They are quite nice. Just an idea.

I have the gloves...my hands through the years get really really cold. I love them wouldn't own another pair of gloves. I want to try to get more but the price is so outragous.

Wanderer,

I tried the muff on Tuesday night with a warmer. It worked great but I like to keep my bow in my lap with an arrow nocked and the muff kinda limits your freedom.

Code-Man,

I just won a pair of AS glove/mitts on ebay for $19 plus 6.50 in shipping. Wish I had them for tomorrow morning though!

Thanks guys for the help!

I bought a set (H2 Coat and Pants) before the 3B Deer season. They are very warm. Too warm for walking but good for stand sitting. They are a little noisy so I wore a blaze fleece jacket over the coat which helped. After 2 washings they seem to be quieter. I have the pullover style coat but wish it had a full zipper. One of the LARGE outdoor stores just had the full zip coat for $34.00 if you belong to the C. Club.

I'm looking forward to trying them on ice fishing trips

I have some boot blankets, I don't know what brand they are, they're very warm but slippery as he!! on frosty snowy ground. I forbid my wife from wearing them in a treestand, too dangerous!!! Nowadays they end up in my car survival bag.

As an update, the AS glove/mitt combo is awesome! I have yet to have cold hands in the stand with these on and they work great for late season pheasant hunting.

I just bought an H1 heartland jacket and is very warm but is a bit noisy with the retain lining in it. Sounds like they sew'd a hefty bag in the lining of the jacket. Wore my parka over the top if it in the tree stand last week and was very toasty and the parka killed the sound a bit. Must be the 1st generation retain because I tried the pullover on and it was very quiet. I will have to try those gloves heard they are awesome.

      Leech, my experience exactly, I hated the thing! I'm a Mister Twister Piranha guy, it's a little heavier duty than the green ones but never had trouble with the green ones either over the many years I've used them. I can use a filet knife on those rare occasions we do a shore lunch somewhere.

      Be cool if there was such a thing. Being people are getting so much more interest in pout it wouldn't be a bad thing I'd say.

      I don't personally own a smmity sled but I've herd many great things about them.

      Thats what I thought.  But I am sure that is what the guy said

      I think some people are obligated to keep what they catch. Me I'll keep fish but not very often at least in the winter. (Not on Mille lacs) Mille lacs you have the chance at catching a trophy sure maybe it would be cool to keep it but for a lot of us letting a trophy go is as good as keeping it at least IMHO.
