Hi-Tech Polar Escape ice house?

4 posts in this topic

Anyone use or have one? Saw them on sale at fleet farm for $129.99 and I want to know if the canvas is any good and if anyone has any comments on them.

Thanks

Is this the HT Polar Iceman. I have one for my son and it's built well the canvas is extra thick and can take a beating it locks in part way for a windblock but is really small so if you are say 5'9" tall and medium build it will be ok. For my 13 year old son it is great and quality constructed. The bars can be a hassle if your used to a fish trap but other than that it's one tough unit. That's a great price I paid $149 for my son's last year. That black canvas really holds the heat and there are small side vents at the top.

I believe the marketing ploy on this was that it could fit into the trunk of a car when they first came out. I know I had to assemble mine for my son and it came in a box. Maybe the place that your looking to buy it from has a display model that you can take out to the parking lot and try to fit in your trunk. My buddy Mike's fish trap has taken a beating hanging out the trunk of his car not to mention the rust. I wish I had a small car trunk to try it in for you what do you drive?

    • Looking for a Wild win tonight, I don't think Kemper is going to get the start in this important game. I don't think anyone likes the five day layoff. Typical got to mess with something that works instead of just playing. Wild will come out of the break with a lot of games to play and little time off to rest anyone.
    • Next up Grow Lights, I have a south facing window in my den that I use to start plants with. I have a big shelf at window height then I use glass blocks and put steel closet racks on top to set my plants on. I can stack about three levels high. Above all of this I have a three bulb flood light fixture This year I went out and bought three 15 watt grow lights. I had to buy some socket extenders so the grow lights would screw into the floodlight sockets. Tried them out last night and they are pretty dang bright. I am going to have them on during cloudy days and in the evening to see if they help promote growth. Any day now I should have some tobacco coming up and I will see if the lights help speed up their growth.

    • I think the Wild vs Jets games are pretty awesome atmosphere-wise. They have a lot of fans that travel down here for games too. It would appear to be a fun place to watch a game in Winnipeg for sure!
    •   And we've never won the war on homicide yet either
    • Have heard that's a fun arena to catch a game at.
    •     Actually I haven't advocated anything. Just pointing out the War on Drugs hasn't been a success along with skepticism that anyone can "win" it   I'll leave the debate of legalization and the pros and cons of doing such to others    
    • The problem of prescription abuse has been recognized on a national level, but it must not fit the agenda, since there was no funding appropriated to go with the legislation.         On the national level, Congress this year passed the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act(CARA), which increased to 275 the maximum number of patients for whom a physician can provide medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid dependence. In a provision aimed at controlling usage and reducing diversion, the law allows prescribers or patients to request partial prescription refills and then opt to have the remainder filled within 30 days.
