Arctic Armor Plus Suit

Arctic Armor Ice Fishing clothing - FLOAT suit

Looking for a float suit? Arctic Armor makes a float suit and we sold it for years. It was the only show in town and it did a fairly good job. That being said, in the four years we sold the product, Arctic Armor's only change to the suit was a sewn-in warning about how this is not a Coast Guard certified suit and a change to the hang tags that said if you tore up the inside of the suit by not watching the velcro they installed on it, they would NOT cover it under warranty. Other than that, the skinny short arms, the 1/2 size smaller sizing of the Arctic Armor Plus Suits, the slightly-above-the-knee leg zippers, and the faulty main and pocket zippers that they refused to handle in warranty were still there. Now, the vast majoirty of suits they sold us were OK and have served their purposes for the customer, and their sales rep and sales manager both were great guys in dealing with us. But, if our customers had an issue and took it to the chain of command for warranty work, it was a hugely different story and not a pleasant one either. We got stuck having to pay for warranty issues with new products and some of our customers got a reprimand from the manufacturer. Top it off with no physical changes made whatsoever over 4 years and you have a mediocre float suit. It does not breathe well, it has no pit zips for ventilation, it has skinny arms so you have a heck of a time putting layers underneath. It IS less bulky than any other suit made, but it fits funny, too. We sold it for years because that was all there was in ice fishing float suits.

Well, guess what happened? We finally became fed up with this stick in the mud wonder and went in search of better float suits. Boy, did we find one! These are not easy to find as most people don't think of a suit that floats in their winter gear. We were thrilled to find Striker Brands! They make one heckuva line of float suits and offer features that not even companies like Clam or Frabill put in their ice fishing suits. And, Clam and Frabill are ice fishing companies!

For those of you who still believe Artic Armor is the way to go, here is how they are different among their models.

Camo Suit

Waterproof, windproof, breathable, nylon outside. Three layers of Insultex insulation. Padded knees and butt. Lots of pockets, adjusters, belt loops on the bibs. Inside has fuzzy, brushed like a fleece lining that is quilted in to the jacket. A bit tight on sizing. If you are big large, get the XL when ordering the AA Plus suit. A little harder to pull on over other clothing.

The brushed, quilted fleece inside is what makes this suit a Plus. That is the only difference among all Arctic Armor Suits

Waterproof, windproof, breathable. Three layers of Insultex insulation. Brushed camo outside for silence. Padded knees and butt. Lots of pockets, adjusters, belt loops on the bibs. Inside has shiny, slippery nylon lining that is quilted in to the jacket. Normal sizing. If you are wear large, order a size large suit. This suit is better geared slightly more towards hunting. if you kneel in water, the water can freeze to the brushed nylon outside and tear up the material if you aren't fairly careful. Still makes a great icefishing suit, just be aware that water can freeze to it. Easier to pull over other clothing.
