If you have an opportunity, stop in at the St. Paul Ice fishing show. One day left. You can see all the suits. I agree with Lee Harvey, take a hard look at the Arctic Armor. Less weight and bulk than any of the other suits plus it will keep you extremely warm and t will keep you afloat if the unthinkable happens.

If you are looking at the ice armor make sure that it is the x suit it is better than the original. The snow suit is probably the warmest but also the heaviest and expensive. Arctic armor light and not bulky. If money is not a problem look at the mustang suits, they are cost guard approved flotation devices.

If flotation is not the most important feature for you, I would go with Cabela's Guidewear. I have fished out of mine for years with no signs of wearing out. Plus this is the only suit with Goretex which has a proven track record for waterproofness and breathability.

The INSULTEX is a proven material in the Arctic Armor and why would one not want the security of knowing if you break through the ice that these suits will give one the chance to survive. They are also waterproof, very warm, less bulky and only weigh 6 pounds.

These suits will give your family alot of piece of mind knowing you are wearing a suit that may save your life. They have been tested and do work.

A buddy of mine loves his Ice Armor X suite. Personally I'm getting the AA+ since its similar to the Ice Armor but it floats you.

Bought my Arctic Armor at the Ice Show and got a chance to try it out on Saturday. First I used it to snowblow the driveway and I actually got hot with just jeans and a long sleeve shirt under the suit. Then I went out on the lake and never got cold (just my feet!) and actually had to take the coat off so I didn't overheat inside my portable...without the sunflower heater on. I am hooked, and my wife is glad I bought it for safety reasons. I also plan to wear it for downhill skiing, early and late motorcycle riding, and early and late open water fishing.

I bought the arctic armor bibs at the show and all I can say is i'm impressed. Plenty warm, nice padding, lightweight. Used it for the first time today. Haven't had to use the flotation (knock on wood), but well worth the money IMHO.

Myself and a buddy both tried on a Ice Armour X suit at the show and it felt way too bulky. I felt like the kid on Xmas story with his huge bundle of layers on! I ended up picking up the blue suit, just because I usually do early and/or late fishing. The rest of the time I'm using the wheelhouse.

    • I never said that at all but my choice of "grill" or "smoker seems to bother you for some reason.   It's OK if you are a little bit jealous of my pellet smoker.....    
    • How does the cold smoke accessory work? I wouldn't fathom doing any this time of year or does it have a built in ice tray to keep foods cool?. If not any grill or smoker would do the trick in the cold. I'm with others,  having room to hang for long smokes works the best. It is a nice concept though.
    • The fatty was good! Got up at 6:30 am Friday morning to put it on the pellet grill.    
    • Ants are just trying to make a livin.
    • Buy an ant moat. Feeder hangs underneath it. Ants can’t cross the water. While I have never used this, I used to put my cup of grape jelly on a small plate, filled with water. Never had a problem with ants. So, in theory, the moat should work just the same.
    • I grease the pole with Mentholatum 
    • Gotta love wings!! Had to see what this reverse searing is about. Pork chops off to the side grabbing natural hardwood smoke then over the heat... tasty. 
    • Did a bunch of wings in the steam pot for 15 minutes yesterday. Let them cool and then brushed with oil and rub. Left uncovered overnight in the fridge. Tonight I grilled them indirectly over some charcoal and apple pellets in the smoker tube. Finished them off over the coals to get them crispy:
    • I'd just take a $20 loss and use the proper stuff your outboard is specified for.    It's just not worth it.   I feel like this falls into one of those "if you have to ask the answer is no" sort of things.
    • I have a half gallon of arctic cat APV oil, and was woundering if this can be used in my oil injected 2 stroke Yamaha 200HPDI? I bought a new sled this winter that requires C-TECH2 oil, so I have a half gallon of 45$ oil just sitting in my garage.
