      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 .

Clam Ice Armor Extreme Gloves

Recommended Posts

I am looking for some honest opinions from true ice anglers on the Clam Ice Armor Extreme gloves. I have read alot of reviews but want to make sure they are all they are cracked up to be. My buddy loves his but says the waterproofing last about a year and has to buy new ones. I'm not looking to spend $45 a year on ice fishing gloves. I have heard alot better reviews on the mittens but want gloves. I tried a pair on in the store and loved the fit. Just want to make sure they are waterproof. I'm not submerging my hands in water but willing be handling a wet transducer, fish, drilling holes, snowmobiling etc.

I use all the gloves from Clam Ice Armor and love them. I really like the mittens and have good success with them. They have the best gloves on the market from what I see out there.

i like them but the extra part that goes up the sleeve is too small to fit my heavyweight striker suit. also the big c has them for sale for 29.99!

I got a pair of these gloves as a birthday gift this year. I was thoroughly impressed by how warm they are. I usually fish without gloves but while fishing with tip-ups my hands freeze. I slip my hands in these gloves and they warm up very quickly. The waterproofing is very good as well. I would recommend them to anyone.

I have three pairs of the gloves and love them. They are warm and comfortable. They seem to be water proof but i don't stick my gloves in the water either. They are a great glove for ice fishing.

I love mine as well. But.... they do fall apart. The fabric that they use on them gets all fuzzy and then starts to break apart. I've had mine for about 4 years and had to sew them up and gorilla glue them where the thumb meets your pointer finger, you know, the area where you wipe your nose.

GM has them for $33.73 with free shipping.

Very warm gloves! Buy one size larger then you usually wear as they seem to run small to me.

Great fishing and hunting gloves.

Not made to use as a work glove! Will wear out fairly fast if used that way!

Here are some pics of my gloves and their issues. They are only used for ice fishing and probably get less that 20 days of use a year.

Truthfully the best glove your going to find. I have several pair, some as old as about 5 years. I only use mine for ice fishing. I would say they would not be a good work glove for like a construction guy, but maybe good gloves for snowboarding, snowmobiling, etc, etc.... Love mine, and yes they are on sale at most places right now!

+1. Get them for the rest of the ice fishing season, and for the spring and fall fishing when it cool as well. Love them when we troll walleyes in the evenings.

You cant't beat them for the price. $45 doesnt buy much for gloves these days.

I also have had two pairs that the stiching has came undone in spots. Just had to sew them closed. I have gotten about four years out of mine as well.

I just picked a pair of the Extreme Gloves up today, all I can say is that they are very warm. I have used the older Ice Armor Arctic Gloves for 4 years and I can already tell that these are going to be much warmer and more waterproof.

    • Doesn't get any better than that. Pic says it all. Congrats  
    • Well not the most attractive option but when the kids are out playing in the sprinkler you could get a roll of nonslip pool matting to roll out then put in the garage during the fall-winter? 
    •   OK, then how about stripping the sealer if that is what makes it slippery.   After a few years it really isn't necessary, since the concrete is mostly cured by then (yeah it keeps curing for decades but most of it is done in a year or two).     I guess if you like the glossy look then maybe the sand in the sealer thing is worth a try.
    • Season ended just like I thought it would and happy Leipold held true to his word and moved on from Fletcher...he did some good things but overall did a poor job building a team that can compete at a high level unfortunately.  It will be interesting to see how the new GM handles this situation...getting rid of under-performers will not be easy and what in return? Going to be one of those down before heading back up deals. Coyle will be the first to go IMO, Granny can go as far as I'm concerned...gotta sign Zucker even though he was terrible in the playoffs, Nino is a question mark, Staal might need to go with the up year he had but long in the tooth and now would be the only time to get anything for him, Ennis (terrible player) will be bought out, Foligno (terrible) probably not tradeable with his contract...enjoy the ride Wild fans!
    • We packed four of us in the blind and had a blast!  Just about ready to give up and gave "one last call" only to have the birds blow up not 30 yards away from us.  One of the gobblers rubbed against the blind for two feet as he walked into the deeks- pretty dang cool!  Ryan made a perfect shot and dropped the bird in his tracks.  
    • Ryan.pdf The pdf shows up as a link for me.  Is that ok Borch?  
    • Twins are 33-91 against the Yankees since 2002! Its unbelievable how awful they play against them.    Stanton absolutely murdered that hanging curveball for a HR last night.
    • I was looking for reviews last night but only found a handful and they didn't really give me that much info. They seemed to be overall positive reviews but all were written after recently applying it so no info on longevity. 
    • Stamped concrete looks great, but not very functional and it requires maintenance too, like every couple of years or so.   ....and how do you get the non-peeled, non-flaked area cleaned?
