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?

      I was up for my first trip to RR on Wednesday and Thursday. Launched at Birchdale Wednesday morning because it was the only one open. Launched at Vidas on Thursday.  Fished the ice edge as it pushed westward for some of both days with minimal success. Caught a 28.5" and 26.5" on consecutive casts on Wednesday but not much other action at ice edge.  We had our most success at the connection of the Rapid River (just west of Vidas Landing). Caught about 45 walleyes total with a 28" and 26" being the biggest from that spot.  We also hooked up with 15 sturgeon, landing 4 of them. A 66", 60" and finished the trip landing two sturgeon in the same net (a 42" and 32", or so).  It was an amazing experience and I will be back again in the upcoming years!
