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 !

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.

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.

    • It's the same form whether the boat is titled or just registered. How long is the boat? 16' or longer or if there was a loan on it when new it would be titled. The form is just the starting point, since Homeland Security took an interest in boat ownership transfers several years ago it is not an easy process.
    • I have had great luck w/ my 3 yr old Big Horn. I have always said that the controller and hopper looked a lot like the Pit Boss       yeah... I'd say you've got options!
    • Actually I got a new 4 burner Char Grill with side burner this spring for up at the camper and a new cheaper 2 burner with side burner a week ago for at home, so alone with the new Char Grill smoker I got last year I have plenty of wienee cookers thanks.  😘  
    • what type of lenses? glass?
    • About 10 years ago I bought a boat that I had to track down a person that was not who I bought the boat from as they owned it many years before that!!!  But I am sure that I got the owners name from the DMV to then track down and had her sign a form, brought back to DMV, and then put into my name.  I am guessing things have changed as to how to get the name, but sounds silly to have to write a letter to get information that they could use proper discretion to give it to you or not.  Good Luck!
    • Traegers are super over-rated and over-priced for what they are. I would rather buy that big horn up above than a Traeger.    I'm fairly certain that Big Horn is just a Pit Boss. Louisiana smokers makes Pit Boss and a bunch of other stuff that other's put their own name on including PF's Cabela's model. I have a small Pit Boss that I am going to use for camping and I like it just fine. I bought that one from a friend for $50 but I'm sure that's still too much for Leech......
    • ok so story time...the one that got away but saw the fish.  I was ice fishing on Red when the eye fishing was still closed and we went out for an early season excursion about a mile out of Westwind.  It was Saturday evening when I my bobber shot down and the fight was on.  Now we were only in probably 5-7 ft of water if that but I "tired" the fish out where I was able to get it directly under the hole and all we could see was a monster northern head filling up the hole!!  No one would put there hand near that thing, let alone blindly through 2.5 ft of ice, so we just watched it for a minute or two float beneath the hole until I tried to turn it up the hole and the line just snapped when he decided he had had enough!!  That was painful not to touch but seeing it and knowing it was all of 44"+ was better than wondering.   Now to the not seen...Ice fishing Waukanabo by Leech in the deep hole on the north end and I see a mark on the bottom and I hook into it and could not budge it off the bottom.  I sat there for a few minutes with rod bent over trying to lift it with nothing but my line slowly moving away until pop it spit my lure!!!  I think the hole is over 40' deep and with 4lb test mono I guess as much as I applied pressure the hook wasn't in!!    What could have been~ so those are two stories that stick out in my mind and of the 2 the second stings more as I have no clue what it could have been and that runs through my mind but the northern as cool as it would have been to touch measure and what not, to see it and to know how massive it was, makes it "easier" to deal with. 
    • Sorry for the delayed response.    Checked in at the Lac Seul Resort on Wednesday, June 6, and checked out on Monday, June 11. Anticipating our usual needs, I preordered 200 dozen minnows and a pound of leeches from KA Sports & Tackle in Dryden for 10 guys to fish for 4-1/2 days.    This was the first time in 20 years that we actually had bait left over at the end. I gave away about 30 dozen minnows to a neighboring cabin because they didn't have any.    We found the morning bite to be slow for some reason but the evening bite was better. Most activity was found in moving water on the English River. On Friday evening another guy and myself went to Pelican Rapids and from 6:00pm till about 9:30pm we figured we boated over 200 walleyes and a few northnerns. Unfortunately, they were all between 15" - 17" in length and we were looking for the 17" - 18" size for the freezer. That's always our goal for fish we intend to take home.    The following night we went back and although the fish weren't biting quite as fast they were larger. Over the same time frame we figured we only boated about 100 walleyes but the size ranged more in the 17" - 22" size.    Overall we had a few walleyes caught in the 25" - 28" range with the largest of the week at 28.25". Northern pike were active with many caught in the 31" - 34" range. Didn't boat any in the 40" range as we usually do but those lower 30-inchers sure put up a fight.    Also found a few nice smallies and whitefish as usual.    Most fish were found in the 10' - 14' depth range, which was unusual compared to previous years when we caught them in shallow water along the shorelines.    Great weather with steady winds out of the southerly directions, which is what we always hope for but never get and nobody got hurt. Another successful year for us.
