Ice Armor

5 posts in this topic

I bought an Ice Armor Xtreme Suit when Thorne Bros had a sale this spring through their HSOforum. It's an XL. I love the way the bibs fit but the jacket feels too big. Wondering if anybody has the other extreme fit, has the large suit but the bibs fit but the jacket feels to small. Would love to do a trade. Mine's never been worn. May go to TBs and see if I can at least exchange for a size large. I have receipt. Anybody????

Thanks,

Steve

After putting the stuff on that zamboni lists, the jacket should still fit loosely. You don't want it too snug, cuz it will restrict your movement.

I tried it on last night with the clothes I would wear fishing. I felt like the Michelin man. I know the bibs feel right, even a little snug in the crotch, but I can adjust that. What I'm going to do is head up to TBs and try on the lg to see if there's a big difference in sizes. I read my receipt and I should be able to exchange for store credit if the large fits better.

Thanks,

Steve

I find that the only time I ever really wear my jacket (Vexilar cold snap bibs & jacket) is when I am outside my shack and it is really cold out. With the added warmth of the bibs, and thermals+hooded sweatshirt, it usually keeps me plenty warm. Your going to love the difference it makes having a good set of ice fishing bibs - love the padded waterproof knees.

Good plan on going to the store and comparing the fit. Good luck!

    • New ABC / WaPo Poll Shows Drop In Trump Favorability Courtesy Of Aggressive "Oversamples" Jan 17, 2017 3:42 PM   In the month leading up to the election on November 8th, we repeatedly demonstrated how the mainstream media polls from the likes of ABC/Washington Post, CNN and Reuters repeatedly manipulated their poll samples to engineer their desired results, namely a large Hillary Clinton lead (see "New Podesta Email Exposes Playbook For Rigging Polls Through 'Oversamples'" and "ABC/Wapo Effectively Admit To Poll Tampering As Hillary's "Lead" Shrinks To 2-Points").  In fact, just 16 days prior to the election an ABC/Wapo poll showed a 12-point lead for Hillary, a result that obviously turned out to be embarrassingly wrong for the pollsters. But, proving they still got it, ABC/Washington Post and CNN are out with a pair of polls on Trump's favorability this morning that sport some of the most egregious "oversamples" we've seen.  The ABC/Wapo poll showed an 8-point sampling margin for Democrats with only 23% of the results taken from Republicans...   ...while the CNN poll showed a similar 8-point advantage for Democrats with only 24% of respondents identifying as Republicans.
