      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 .

Ice Armor

Recommended Posts

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!
