Eskimo QF3i vs fatfish

Recommended Posts

Which size fatfish are you looking at? I have the 949I and love it tons of room and very warm even on cold days holds heat.

Just a note that the quickfish are not a side zipper bag like the fatfish models. For that reason I would go with the fatfish.

I have both a Quickfish 3I which is 70"x70" on the bottom and a 949I Fatfish which is 94"x94" on the bottom. Both great popups. I use the 3I when I go alone, but the 949I works great also. I use the 949I when I want to stay overnight. I have slept in the 949I several nights and stayed nice and warm. The 949I also has 2 doors - the QF 3I has one door.

If you primarily fish alone -- check out the Eskimo Wideone Inferno flip.

Thanks. I currently have an 8'x8' gander thermal. It's great. I have a duffle bag for putting the shack in I did notice the end only opened on the qf3i bag. Is the qf3i red on the inside also or does it have the black coating that flakes off like every other shack.

I bought a 767i about a month ago and the bag is now the open end draw string, not the zippered duffle. Just FYI.

I picked the 767 due to size preference as well. The 949 IS nice but I don't need it that big so I thought I'd skip the extra weight and space consumption.

I have the 949I and love everything about it but the bag. Works OK if its reasonably warm out but its almost impossible to get it in the bag if its real cold. I had a canvas shop make me a new bag.

The insulated version of the qf3 only has one door? I have the uninsulated one and it has 2 doors.I was thinking of upgrading eventuly but thas odd if the insulated one has only 1 door.

I just bought and used the qf3i. I love it way better than the 767 I had the zippers were always hard to open and them stupid flaps that go over the zippers are a pain. I do tip ups alot and liked the qf3i because i can stand and get in and out of the house. the 767 i felt like i was being born again coming out. the 767 is a little bigger but the insulated is awesome i cant compare apples to oranges because of the insulation but size wise i like the qf3i better i had a 949I it was nice but to big and bulky plus this one today -5 degrees outside my wife actually took her coat off she was warm also mine has 2 doors on it.

There is no comparison the insulated canvas is so much better! My wife said the same thing the other day. She was overly warm in my 8x8 thermal. I appreciate the reviews on the qf3i guys. Having 2 doors would be nice also in that size shack.

    • Box? i don't think I've ever seen them but will be looking in a little while
    • Buy a box of cheesy tots.  Cook.   Use rack over sheet pan on grill or in oven.  😀
    • Cheesy tots sound great! Anyone got a recipe?
    • If you're feeling adventurous some time follow the same process you just explained but instead of using a rib rub try using a generous amount of Montreal Chicken seasoning with yellow mustard as your glue.  Also, try a wing or thigh before using the Famous Dave sauce.   Goof Luck
    • I took wings, thighs and legs and put rib rub on them and let them sit for 4 hours then I smoked them for about 90 minutes this morning. Tonight I put them on the grill to crisp up and slathered with Famous Dave's. I seem to kill chicken on the grill but with the smoker I can regulate better plus all that flavor. Only way I'll do chicken now!
    • The grain belt is a bigger sin.😁
    • Yes, I noticed the bottled water in the back👺
    • I did 2 racks of St. Louis style ribs on the pellet smoker yesterday, rubbed with smoky mesquite seasonings...  so good no bbq sauce was used when they were eaten!!!  did the 3-2-1 method but used different temps from the last time I did them...  started at 175 for 3 hrs, then 230 wrapped and finished unwrapped at 230...  Oh Yea!!!
