      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 .

What kind of gloves?

Recommended Posts

I have a couple pairs I use. I have Arctic Armor X mittens for extreme weather. My normal gloves are Manzella gloves. There are a few models that are similar, the ones I use are called "Head On", and Manzella's are in my opinion the best gloves out there.

Arctic Armor here too. I would buy them again if they had a xxl one. The xl are just to tight on my big hands.

They are nice and warm and waterproof. Great for hole hopping and pulling your house out on the ice. I use them for shoveling and snow blowing as well.

If its real cold and Im snowmobiling I like a light glove under some good choppers with a wool liner.

This is the exact problem I have with my big mitts. The XL's are to tight and they do not make and XXL. But If they did I would but another pair.

I've never tried the Arctic Armor gloves ... Looking at pictures they look very similar to Ice Armor gloves (only they use white piping instead of red).

Are they basically the same glove?

I wear Arctic Armor Gloves when pulling my portable, running my auger, fishing outside when it's really cold, etc. I wore them for most of the deer hunting season too.

I wear insulated elk skin gloves the rest of the time, I like how warm they are and I like how easily they slip on and off.

I always bring a few pairs. I usually just wear a pair of thin cotton gloves with possibly a pair of the fingerless gloves with the flip over mittens, but I usually wear my choppers while pulling my gear and drilling holes.

Ice Armor and Ice ArmorX here, I love the things. The Ice Armors aren't completely water proof, and aren't made for extreme conditions, but the Ice ArmorXs are awesome gloves, I've had my pair for two seasons and they're still just like new. They also come in mittens.

Thats what I do. I was given a pair of Ice armor gloves but other than being waterproof they're not much warmer than jersys.

If my hands get cold I just have a large pair of Choppers I stuff my hands in.

i have ice armor gloves that i always bring with along with my choppers, but for most of the day i am barehanded. i throw the ice armors on when digging in the water and checking tipups then they get thrown back in front of the heater. i would buy another.

I resort to the tried and true choppers with wool liners, gives me plenty of room for circulation. I have poor circulation and 2 short fingers that are really sensitive to the cold if not active so gloves dont work for me all that well.

I would have to agree with croixflats. For keeping my hands and fingers warm I have bought North American Outfitters Deerskin mittens at Gander for $10and they keep my hands warmer than anything. I kid you not for $10 you can have warm hands. I have been outside in -30 weather with these on and my hands stayed nice and toasty.
