Arctic Armor

7 posts in this topic

How is this stuff? I know WalleyeDan will have good things to say, but since he sells it I would like to hear from a consumer, and Dan you too! Is it warm? How is it to fish in as far as durability and comfort? How does it compare to Ice Armor? Thanks in advance for the feedback!!

I got mine last year and am very happy I did. Very warm with minimal base layer, really light and comfortable. One of the best purchases I have made in a long time, you won't be dissappointed!

I have it, and got it from Dan. All I can say without sounding like a broken record is that it is GREAT! Thinner than I thought, warmer than I thought, usable all year round except the hot part of summer, and very comfy. Well worth the price tag. If you hunt, get the camo. I got red and I like it, but they didn't have camo when I got mine.

Do a search for my name or just Arctic Armor and you will find lots of people who are simply customers who are very pleased. I haven't heard anything bad so far about it, maybe a few with zipper issues, but they got worked out. My zipper is fine. I only wish the leg szippers went a bit higher than they do, which is the standard height.

You won't be sorry. I even bundle my Dad up in mine in the spring fishign trip and he stays toasty for an old "freeze-baby" in his older age. Heck I was wearing mine fishing right into June, but it also stays warm in -10 and beyond.

Enough of a soapbox, but I love the stuff, more now so than when I bought it last year.

Has anyone had a bad experience? I have not heard of one yet. Looks like I am going to have to pay Mr. Dan a visit. Where is your new shop at WalleyeDan??

Otis,

We are located just west of the county road 77 and highway 371 intersection in Nisswa. If you are heading towards Grand View Lodge our shop is on your right hand side before you hit the long stretch of woods, can't really miss it. Call me before you stop, we have been on the fly.

Dan,

Is there going to be duck blind camo gloves in the near future?

        So, this Deer runs through the forest all winter without breaking it's neck on anything. Then breaks it's neck by your deck that just happens to have a bird feeder and lots of really big rocks by it? Did the Warden buy it?   Oh yeah nice fish haul.

      I always thought after shooting them from my deck, it couldn't get any easier; guess I was wrong. Lol! Backstraps never tasted sweeter. Hope you bought a lottery ticket.

      Information I have indicates the operator stopped his machine on the marked trail, in a section marked 'Thin Ice'. That is when the machine went through.

      Well i will dissent a little, of course having more motor than nessessary doesn't hurt. I have fished the spring nearly every year with a 55 or 65 lb thrust bowmount.  Only once did i have difficulties, it was rolling down stream, so i used the outboard, still sucked, got very wet. I have fish the river a hand full of times without a trolling motor and have still fone extremely well.
