Ice Fishing Socks

12 posts in this topic

Anyone use Ice Armor socks ?? I have a good pair of boots but toes still get a little cold after 3-4 hours, wondered how well these work and if you have any other suggestions, dont mind spending the money if they will keep me warm. Thanks in advance.

What else works for you?

Haven't tried ice armor socks, but I have never been let down by smartwool socks.

They used to be made 100% in USA....that has since changed, but they are still the best sock out there...JMO

I will pass on the Smart Wool socks. They are decent, but they tend to slide down as the day goes on.

FTW, try Under Armour or Filson socks. You won't be sorry.

With my Ice Kings I have never needed to wear anything other than my daily white tube socks.

I have had about 20 pairs of different smart wool socks and not 1 pair has slid down on me. They actually are the best fitting winter socks I have. I wear a wicking sock under them and Im golden.

I use Red Head hunting socks from Bass Pro. Feet stay warm and dry. I also wear them all year as work socks lifetime guarantee I usually wait until I have four pair worn out and sed them back and in a week I get four new ones.

The Smartwool socks are great and there are tons of different designs. Actually most socks made of wool are very good as long as they have no cotton. And like Northlander said, you are golden if you use a thin synthetic liner sock underneath a wool sock.

    •   Then I wonder if they'll go back to the old way.
    •   Melt.   They should invite Obama and do a real roast of Donny boy.  
    • 6 million dollars per mile.    Oh My. Did Mexico cut the check for the down payment yet?  Has Merkel cut a check to Nato yet?    
    •   Plus+ 1 the carb. It's filling up the crank case with gas. After you clean or rebuild the carb tip it on the side with the plug out to drain the crank before trying to start it. Or if it's going to be a while take the plug out now and may be the gas will evap a bit by the time you get at the repair. good luck and let us know how it went. That was my first ATC.  
    • Ovi sure makes it look easy out there. What a beast.
    • And we know you like it raw.  No vaseline.   Pink steak, sure.  But raw burger just isn't my jam.   
    • AHH..... Memories.... I would have loved to have a odometer on our  Tri-Moto 125, had to have put thousands of miles on that 3 wheeler, burnt it down a few times when we were kids but Dad said you'll have to learn to fix it yourself! I'm not bringing it back to the dealer every time there's something wrong! We got good at new pistons and rings and gasket sets..... eventually we brought it to the dealer in pieces after we couldn't fix it anymore, think it was a rod bearing that eventually was it's demise, ended up getting a rippin' Tri-Moto 175 after that, those wheelers were our main transportation since we didn't have drivers licenses yet....... good times for sure.   You're carb is having issues, I would go there first, somethings not stopping the fuel from getting into your carb, either the float has a hole in it and isn't floating, or it could be sticking somewhere or your needle and seat are shot.   Give the carb a good once over and you should have your problem fixed.   Those were pretty basic 2 cycle engines, I don't think they even had reed valves.   Mike    
    • I planned on getting seeds and starting them at home, I won't be up there until late April. I have planted squash up there and they did not grow, I will look at blue hubbard, I have not had/grown them before, they sound interesting.
