      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

What size would I need if I am 6'6 and 230 lbs.

You would want a 2XL jacket, which would be roomy on you. And a 3XL bibs because of how tall you are.

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:

aajacketcamo-red.gif

aabibscamored.gif

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.

    •   Member of ADVRider. Rode with lots of guys on there. I just put out a feeler on here once in a while.
    • You ever check out www.thumpertalk.com Lots of guys in your area.
    • I think that summer one is in the regs, 75 feet as I recall.   
    • I am no expert either but putting my trust in the builder. Talking to him, there will only be enough lumber to screw the sheetrock to. There will be no 16" on center studwalls. He has done several like this with no problems. The "Gurts" are attached to the poles and you could saw the poles off at the bottom and move the whole building.
    • Like Leech said, it appears that a grant in aid trail is running through your area. I would urge you to contact the club president or another representative and try to work out a solution. They may be able to even re-route the trail to avoid your driveway but you will not know unless you engage in a civil discussion with a representative of the club. Just let them know you have concerns and see if an agreement can be had.    I would be surprised if the club doesn't have a landowners event every fall that you could attend and talk to club members as well to keep reminding them each year of your concerns.
    • Forgot this was a day game, missed it but happy we got the two points. We have been holding our spots and even have some games in hand on some other teams. If we can just keep this pace up we are in, but here is hoping we get hot towards the end of the year. Would be nice for a change. 
    • Nice win this afternoon on the road...things are getting interesting....need others to keep stumbling and we may not have to worry about a Wild Card.
    • That's the problem in restrictor plate races--stay on the gas and hit the car in front or lift and be hit from behind.
    • No doubt!   We didn’t have to wonder if there was actual contact though after Dillon said he had a run and just stayed in the gas.   Is what it is.  And that’s the difference I noticed.
    • So no sill plate for the walls on the perimeter then.  OK.     Again, not an expert so whatever your guys say and you’re comfortable with... I don’t know all your construction details. I - sandy County Is just that; sandy.  So it’s not too tough to get a good base.   My experience, as it relates to this, has just been based on building a 36x48 wood framed garage in Isanti County.  8 inch block on the perimeter to support 12 foot sidewalls of 2x6 construction.  My buddy that sold me the lumber said the project was only 200 feet short on interior walls from being a house.  After adding in the attic square footage it had more than my house.  Going with a pole building frame is the game changer.   Again, best of luck. It would be interesting to me to see the completed project.
