      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 .

Tech H2O Raingear

Recommended Posts

Anyone have any of the gander mountain tech h20 raingear? How do you like it? Does it keep you dry? I can't afford the expensive gore tex stuff but I need some new gear as my old plastic stuff is leaking in my pants. This stuff seems nice and affordable.

Thanks

Joe

I have it and I have fished in a few down pours and not got wet. Way better than the piecemeal stuff I had before.

Will it keep you dry in 25-30 mph winds and horizontal rain for say 3-4 hours straight? Wife hasn't tested those conditions yet and if shes not dry I'm not happy since I'll be headed home.

I have 2 sets. I bought the second one on closeout as the first set got wore out from wearing it all the time. The first set performed well for about 5 years before the bib thigh area started to leech water during all day rains. I tried treating it with a Gortex fabric replenisher and it did not take so the bibs were pretty much done for. I still use them late ice when it is warm and wet outside because other then the thigh area they are still waterproof. The second pair is now my summer mainstay and have worked well going on two years now. I think the first ones wore out in the thighs from some hardcore camping experiences and frequent handwiping after fish ect, the fabric just wore out. One word of caution is that if you lander them wash them on a gentle fabric setting and air dry them, don't stick them in the dryer. I found with the first set that washing them on a regular wash setting the liner fabric began to tear away from the coat and the neoprene wrist cuffs. All in all, they are a good set and should last a longtime depending on how they are treated both during use and after.
