      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 .

Arctic Armor......Is it worth the money?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have a size chart for the artic armor. For example the inseam length or the arm length of the jacket. What size would I need if I am 6'6 and 230 lbs.

Perchjerker was right on because I am 6' and about 255 and I have a XXL jacket and bibs but should have got a XL jacket.

I have the camo pattern and was mad at myself for leaving them up at the cabin when they should have come deer hunting with me because of the high winds my legs got chilly. This never happened last winter going across the lake on my 4 wheeler when it was below zero !

[Note from admin: You can find the HSO Arctic Armor Suits and Gloves here - FREE GLOVES and shipping!!.]

Thanks guys for the help but I believe that I should only need a XXL in Bibs since the length should be the same but it is just wider. I may have to find a place to try them on to make sure I get the right size.

I wanted to try them on but...there's only a couple stores here handy that have it and when i called they had a very limited supply. I'm 6-5 240lbs. I'm thinking 2XL for the jacket and bibs. What do you think anyone??

Arctic Armor is so well worth the money that you spend on it. I wish i would have had one for the last 15 years.

Great product and like i said, well worth the money.

I have said it many times. Light and warm and its great all year round. I use it spring , fall and winter fishing. Too warm for summer. I also use it snowmobiling and its great. Plus the reflective material makes it easy to see people with a flashlight or sled lights when riding your sleds on the ice.

Some of the best money, if not the best, I have spent on cold weather clothing ever.

And yes it floats.

I have a question about the lining on the bibs. I see that the "Plus" line has a fleece or tricot type lining. does this cause your shirt to ride up when wearing them. I have had some bibs that didnt have a smooth nylon lining in them and they were a real pain as they kept pulling my shirt up leaving my kidney area exposed. I think the camo and red have a slicker lining than the green suit. Thoughts anyone?

Gadgetman,

I purchased the new A.A. Plus, but since it is a very new product on the market I have limited use of the suit (not quite winter yet). Personally, I love the liner and it feels more comfortable to wear compared to my other Arctic Armor I own.

The red/black and Camo suits have a nylon liner on the inside.

But, it is hard to decide from these:

These prices are pretty great, plus free gloves, shipping, you get a HSO logo and no Tax wink all for $339.00! That is cool cool

This about the best deal I have seen around.

I just have to decide which color confused The green looks very cool, but so does the camo, But!!! The red and black is the traditional color and most of the pro staff seems to wear this color. grin

Decisions, decisions??

Shack, you wont be sorry! I got the camo suit, I have been wearing it out hunting. It is nice, its not bulky, and it is warm! I have been in the rain with it, and it never soaked through to me, I stayed dry. I see it as a 3 season coat!

I know the $339 is a sweet deal but am wondering if I should wait for the St. Paul Ice Show to buy and maybe get the same or better deal. Also, am wondering if all the sizes will be avail at the show thru Sunday.

    • Yeah, it's not BigDave for nothing there fella!
    • It's dinner and supper!
    • My wife loooves Beets. Here's my recipe Lot of beets, as many as you can fit in to a large boiling pan. .add 1 cup draino .add 1 cup muriatic acid .heat with a blow torch throw off hwy over pass so they get tender under semi truck tries for one hour. Then go get some food and have a Beer! Enjoy! Hate um!      
    • The guy who told me this said teal were in big groups and he saw a few hundred
    • Just cuz they're flying that direction don't mean the migration started!   Summer-like temps again this year for the opener.  I don't think they're bugging out yet.  Last year I saw teal in NE MN in the 3rd week of October! I have enough shells and some calls I suck at blowing, along with decoys that sport my initials and '87 so I guess I'm as ready as every other year!
    • Never heard of one where ya DON'T cook the beets....but who knows? Here's one I used years ago... EASY PICKLED BEETS (1 Quart) 2 bunches small beets – ends trimmed and scrubbed 4 small onions – sliced and separate rings ½ cup liquid from boiled beets ½ cup white vinegar ½ cup honey – go local! ¼ teaspoon salt ¼ teaspoon cinnamon or cinnamon stick ¼ teaspoon cloves Bring beets and enough water to cover to a boil over high heat.  Reduce to medium and continue to boil for 45 minutes.  With 5 minutes remaining on beets add onion slices.  Drain beets and onions, reserving ½ cup of the liquid, set aside. While the beets and onions cool add beet liquid, vinegar, honey, salt, cinnamon, and cloves to medium sauce pan and bring to a boil. Peel beets (this should be easy once they are cooled), and slice.  Add sliced beets and onions to a Mason jar, or air tight container of your choosing.  Cover beets with boiled liquid, cover, and refrigerate at least 24 hours before eating.  I prefer them after about 72 hours.  
    • If that's lunch, I'd love to see dinner!! 
    • We can't find our recipe for pickled beets. Haven't done this for a couple of years.  Wife and I both certain we didn't cook the beets.....we just packed them in hot jars, poured the brine over, then boiled the sealed jars for 15-20 minutes.  I can't find a recipe that says you don't have to cook beets.  Does any one have such a recipe?  Our brine contained cinnamon sticks and cloves.  I imagine we could just add these ingredients to any regular vinegar/sugar/water brine though.  Mostly just wondering about using raw beats vs uncooked beets.  Thanks...Jim
