Nordic 2 man flip over

5 posts in this topic

I understand Polar has a new shelter this year called the Nordic (2 man). The people at Gander claim it's a pretty good set up. Does anyone else have any opinions on this one? I'm looking to make my purchase this week, but still debating which one.

Thanks

It's not new this year. It is however a pretty nice unit from what I saw of it last year. I liked it.

I also recommend you take a look at the Eskimo Outpost - CLICK HERE or Grand Caravan - CLICK HERE - They're both VERY ROOMY and worth a good long look.

Another to take a look at is the Otter Resort - CLICK HERE. Most claim Otter is the best built Fish House on the market because of their tubs.

Rick....

Where did you see the house last year? This is the first year that Polar has made the Nordic house.

The Nordic is a high quality house. They feature 11oz. Breathable Canvas / Rugged Polyethlene Towable Sled / Windows on all 4 Sides / 2 Side Vents / 2 High Back Swivel Seats / Built in Auger Holder / Exterior & Interior Draft Flaps.

Retail price $399 / Over all in my opion this is a quality house a a great price.

I now own one of these houses and think it is the best two man house on the market for
the money.And it not nylon it is canvas.
And I can stand straight up in this one.
Iwould go with the Nordic.

I apologise, I misread BUZEHOWND's post.

I mistakenly thought he was posting on Polar's double flip over. You can probably tell by the links I provided to Otter and Eskimo.

    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...

    • Hey featherslayer, you gonna register that nice bird of yours pretty soon?
    • cool find!  sure looks like a Swainson's.  
    • Great info.   Thanks Steve!   Jim
    • Came across this hawk on Earth Day at the edge of town. I've been told dark morph Red-tail, dark morph Swainson's and dark morph Broa- winged. Anyway, it's a dark morph some kind of hawk.
    • Yes it was.  I really needed one more layer today.  Lots of jakes and hens seen by us this morning.  Still looking for the toms.  Hope you had more luck.
    • There are a lot of apps available for that. Search your app store for "phone tracking" or something similar. Many give you the ability to share your positions so you both can see each other live. You might even have an app already on your phone. For example, I have Lookout Security installed on my phone and it includes the ability to find the location of my phone from another phone or PC.
