      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

UnderArmor Base Layer

Recommended Posts

VMS

question for anyone who has it...

How good is it? does it wick away perspiration well and is it comfortable? I am needing a new base layer and have been eyeing this stuff up for a year now, but have not heard of anyone's experience with it.

I have been using the old cotton stuff you can buy at walmart, and it works fine, but on a walk, it's wet, then I get a bit cool...

thanks for the opinions

Steve

I tried it for the first time last year and was very glad I did. It wasn't that cold out but when I was stomping through the woods trying to push some deer out for the other guys (already had mine grin.gif) seemed to keep me pretty dry.

Its the best stuff out there as far as I'm concerned. Worth the price which, admittedly, is outrageous...

This stuff is great. Takes the moisture away from your body and still provides warmth. I use it anytime i wear layers.

Under armor has been around big time for athletics. Thing you need to look at when purchasing under armor is to make sure it's what you want. Because of sports we use it a lot for the football players with pants and shirts and some use the head deals. It does help when your sweating to dispurse that sweat through out. They make warm under armor and Cold Weather under armor. there is a difference between the two in the texture and price. For drives it's nice to have the thin one then change afterwards if you can makes a big difference. The cold stuff our football players swear by. In crookston our college team can't practice inside and it gets cold up here and the boys from GA and AZ swear by it. It's worth its weight if you get the right stuff and dress in layers and it works as a great 1st or 2nd layer. Better then the wool long under wear.

I have the warm weather stuff and it really does seem to keep you cool and dry. I have not tried the cool weather stuff yet.

I have the cold gear and was impressed last year with it. the only thing I will caution you on, is that it fits differently than other cloths. it sucks down pretty tight and will show off your six-pack abs. Notice I said "your" six-pack abs and not "mine". There is no restriction of movement, which you will not believe possible when you first put them on, but it is true. All in all, I would recommend them for sure as they wick so well.

Do they make this stuff for tall people? I can never find Under Armor in tall sizes. Also are there any knockoff manufacturers yet that sell this stuff at a lower price point?

I got to use both the cold gear and the heat gear, they both work great! I wore the heat gear most of the summer fishing and it helps on hot days, the cold gear is awesome for warmth. You can also get loose fit wich is nicer than the compression stuff (does not show off your less than six pack abs!) laugh.gif It is definatly woth the money.

I bought one of the loose fit shirts. It seems to work ok but I'm not sure it’s worth the big bucks that they want for it. Can you say 'pay for the advertising’? I have several other polypropylene shirts that work just as well for 1/3 the price. Check the ones at Walmart. Anything that says polypropylene will work. Another thing I like to do is get the sleeves cut off (and hemmed). That way in the early season you can wear the short sleeved polypro with a cotton long sleeved shirt, you get the wicking action yet you have the warmth of two layers.

I have the cold gear and would not give it up for anything else on the market.I sweat a ton even when I am doing very little and never ever feel damp.If you keep a eye on ebay there are deals to be had.

I've tried it, and like it. I also like Contain shirts from Cabelas. They are made for deerhunting and have detergent build into the fabric, but they stay dry even when you sweat. I've got a few Nike tight fitting nylon type shirts that work about as well and were about half the price.

Can you buy just the bottoms or the tops? Just out of curiosity...for the cold weather gear...what's the typical price and what stores carry them? From the sounds of all the posts...probably a good product to put on the wish list.

Thanks.

I was looking at my Sportsmans Guide sale catalog this morning and they had the Under Armour shirts priced at $60 and on the opposite page the polypropelyne shirts were $18. Granted those prices are probably high but you could buy three of polypro for the price of the Under Armour... Sorry I have too many other toys to buy, I'll go for the cheaper polypro shirt that will work just as well.

      The wife and I were up to L O W  for whole week. Great weather, good fishing and fun time. Was able to fish 7 days split up between Morris point, Long point and the river. For me Long point was the better bite. May have seen a couple members of outdoors Mn on Tuesday out of LP. Let me know if I'm right. Also met member from Wisc. at Morris point( real good guy) Anyway didn't seem to matter much what color jig caught them on every color with frozen shiner. Some days were better then others but always caught fish. Ate several meals of fish and brought fish home. Also caught a 14 in perch that I brought into taxidermist. Plan on going back at least one more time this fall . ( Too good not to).

      Got some grouse and saw some nice coveys. The biggest was 6 birds but found couple groups of 5. That is always fun.
    • eyeguy 54
      we mainly jigged fatheads in front of their mouths. 2 weeks ago also and tried a few different times over 3 days this trip. water is still crazy low so I don't think many boats will be using access. Also tried a couple different plastics and some gulp. Probably ready to go crazy up there soon.  Last year at this time it was really good. Might get there once more before ice time but not sure.

      Been thinking about breaking out the Jiggin Raps, might have to give that a shot. It's been too crowded out there this weekend with MEA going on.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!  
    • DLD24
      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?
