What is a warm, waterproof suit that I don't have to drop 6 bills on? I see that Ice Armor is around 200.00 for the blue and 300.00 for the grey and black. Does anyone have these, or use these? How do they work for you? Thanks..




That is for each piece. $600 clams for the 2 pieces.Little pricey to me...

I believe SnoSuit has a special here on In-Depth Outdoors that drops the price down quite a bit. I will search for it and let you know!

Chappy,
Ice Armor X is on sale right now at Cabela's for 300.00 for the tops and bottoms together.

Rob, let me know what you find out. Thanks

Snosuit hasn't finalized the details on the promotional price for IDO members but the plan is for them to offer the suit (top and bottom) for $480. When that promotion is released I'll announce it in several locations here on the site. You won't be able to miss it and it should be announced in the next couple days.

It is hard to compare the two products. Take the time and try them both on to get a feel for each product. I'm certain you will feel, as I did, that the other garments on the market feel like a light weight jacket suitable for cool spring evenings when compared to the Snosuit.

Now, if what you're looking for is a decent suit that will keep you warm for short stints on the ice on days when the temps are "average" and the winds are light the Ice Armor will do the job for you.

If you want the warmest, most comfortable extreme weather clothing on the market the Snosuit is the ticket.

Scott and I regularly fish in this stuff in sub-zero temps spending all day on the ice. Our camera guy used to have insulated guidewear and he dropped for the snosuit after wearing it one time while filming. The difference in the warmth and comfort this suit provides is incredible.

It really comes down to what you want and need. If you want to be able to stay out on the ice when everyone else hides out in the shack and fish on days when everyone else just stays home, it will be worth the effort to check out this product.

I know Everts Resort carries this product as does Thorne Bros. if you want to try it on and kick the tires. The Snosuit isn't cheap... but premium quality products never are.

480.00 is a lot better!!! Thanks James..
James HolstAdministrator
At $480 it is comparable in price to insulated guidewear. In my opinion the Snosuit is a far superior cold weather product.

The true test for me was to get Dean Marshall into one of these suits and see how it worked for him. He's the coldest blooded man I've ever met and he struggles to stay warm on days when I don't have any issues.

Dean bought a Snosuit the next day after trying the product and he's retired the insulated Guidewear for winter use.

I recently purchased the Ice Armor Extreme (gray) suit and could not be happier with it. Wow.

Like James said previously some of the suits seem light and not nearly as warm. This suit fits the bill of VERY warm. Been riding the ATV in below zero w/ wind and the only thing that gets chilled is my face. It's fantastic AND light weight. I love it. Spent $320 on it at Cabela's right after Christmas. It's a HUGE step up quality-wise from the blue suit. I also tried the floating suit and it didn't seem nearly as high quality in construction, feel, and warmth. But that's just me. Try 'em all on for yourself to see what fits your needs the best.

After watching the video that definately persuaded me with all the options and pockets. Also the reinforced knees is a big issue for me with jumping holes all the time, i'm on my knees most of the day fishing.

I love this website and I have never had on a Sno Suit, so remember that. But I own a Suit called Arctic Armor and absolutely love it. I bought it for $299 for the bibs and coat(delivered to my door) but they are in red, now you can buy them for $320 for bibs and coat in Mossy Oak also. I got mine from Walleye Dan in Brainerd. The one nice thing about these is if you were to fall in the lake you will FLOAT!! Not trying to take anything away from Sno Suit, but I know mine was $180 cheaper, and I know you get what you pay for, but that is alot of money for most people. Just another option and I liked these 100 times better than the Ice Armor suits, so don't get them confused.

That's the floater I was referring to as well. Seemed like a nice setup. I think comfort and warmth wise it seemed like a step up from the blue suit (Ice Armor) and not nearly as warm as the gray Extreme suit (Ice Armor). I haven't tried the SnoSuit, but I'm sure it's outstanding as well.

If you're in the market for cold weather clothing... do NOT buy until you've tried on the Snosuit. Then try on the other products out there. You'll know in a short amount of time which product is the right product for you.

If you want to see this product in action or even try it on look me up at the LOTW Get-Together. I wear an XL and I'll be happy to loan it out for short test drives.

got my snosuit for $478 through thorne bros. free shipping and extremely fast too. its worth the money, i think it is far superior to the ice armor. thats just my opinion.
R. Kayle
I appreciate all the replies. Thanks
Schtickney
I drove my 4wheeler out from Red Door at -10 degrees last year and we drove out for 7 miles. I was toasty when we got there and I didn't have a helmet either. I really liked my Arctic Armor, but if Sno Suit was made and I had the extra money, maybe I would have went with them.
I will tell you that any product that James, Scott S., Tuck, Lip, Dean, and others (maybe even BrianK ), suggest then you can't go wrong either.

I know there are several staff with Snosuits. If there is anyone on the north side of the twin cities that wants to try one on let me know.
On the other hand Thorne Brothers is up here also and there you can try on different sizes to see what fits best and also try on some of there other cold weather gear to compare. I believe they carry Arctic Armor and Vexlar.

I didn't realize how nice that stuff was until I watched that video. I just wish someone would invent a high quality "sno suit" where the insulation could be temporarily removed somehow to just be spring-fall rainwear. That would be a selling point that would be extremely hard to beat. I will stick to my guidewear for now...can't afford to go that big twice, but if I was in the market for only snow gear at that price range, I would go with that one.

Yep,got the large Sno-suit. Took it out on the ice for the first time today.Absolutely incredible stuff
The ability to cool yourself with the zippered breathing vents I thought were a big plus.

With the great pockets,the internal boot gators, padded knees and butt,right down to the small led light you can tell that this was one well thought out garment.Bring on the cold

Dan is right,if anyone down this way would like to try it,just give me a shout

Also,these are going to be awesome for ice out walleyes while in the boat late winter and early spring.Very comfortable too!

I have tried about everything available in regards to cold weather clothing.....I have spent more money than I care to admit trying to stay warm. The snosuit sure could have saved me alot of money had I bought it first.

As always,feel free to try mine out if curious or skeptical....the price is right!

While we are on the topic. What do you guys recommend for boots to wear. I have a terrible time keeping my feet warm in cold weather. Fall fishing in the boat or on the ice both bother me. I can pheasant hunt all day and have toasty feet from the movement, but when I am relatively stationary for a long time fishing, my feet freeze. Thanks.

Thank you. I will look into them.
Blue Fleck
They are one of the warmest boots I've experienced. When I worked for La Crosse boots, we were told to encourage people to buy a size larger in that boot. The foam liner is constricting. However, anything made of that material will compact with time. I'd suggest trying them on in your regular size, with out boot socks. I don't believe anyone buying those boots will need anything more than a moisture wicking sock. If you're still not sure of the size fit and feel, try them with a boot sock in the larger size.

Shop around though, there are a lot of great boots on the market now.

i wear cabelas inferno boots. 2000 grams of thinsulate and have dry plus lining. have stood in 5 inches of water and slush with no problem. great for fall and spring boat fishing also.
Bigfife
I have Arctic Armor Carharts that I've used for 5 years. This year I said I was going to buy the best winter suit out there, but I still can't justify it. My Carharts are still in great shape, keep me warm, and they're paid for. The past 3 years while I was in college I spent 50+ days on the ice a year. I used to wear them for work too-roofing, digging trenches, and kneeling in the dirt. They are still holding up just fine and they are water resistant. I typically wear Under Armour cold gear, a long sleeve shirt, and a layer of fleece under my Carharts. What happens to some of these other suits if you get too close to a sunflower heater? I watched my cousin put a big hole in his Blue Suit last year. I picked up a Gamehide Typhoon parka today for $100 and after I get some bibs I think I will be pretty well set for Spring, Summer, Fall, and those wet winter days. Just some food for thought, but the Snosuit does look very good.

I did this same thing back in November / December and choose the new guy on the block, Artic Armor. The wife bought for a X-mas and B-day present so I didn't worry about the price. It's 299.99 for bibs and jacket.

I have worn it out on the ice twice and been warm as could be with minimal clothes on underneith. The best thing about it is if you ever go through the ice, it floats!
Scott Steil
I have been doing this a long time, a really long time now that I look back at it. Over the years I have tried very hard to find the best products on the market and when I do, I stick with them. After putting in over 150 hours now on my snosuit I can promise that it is the best suit on the market if you are looking for cold weather gear...the best! I don't just hand out endorsements, products have to earn it...and it does.

I will answer this the same way I aways do. You will not find a better boot than the Mickey Mouse Boots. Do an internet search and make sure they are the official BATA version. They are hands down the best ice boot there is and they are cheap. They are not a sponsor of mine, but I have been wearing them for 18 years. I try all the new boots as they come out, but I keep going back to the good old Bunny Boots. 100% waterproof, warmer than you will ever need and very affordable
big G
Scott, I wore them in the Army, camping out in Camp Ripley in January and February. I was sold on them as I never did get cold feet. I then bought a pair, when I got out of the Army, they are the official issue ones, but I find them a little bulky and heavy, and the are so tight on my ankles, that my ankles actually hurt. Maybe they are too small, but they are the same size I had in the other issued boots. The only difference, was they are black, not white. I can wear my Ice Kings all day, and my feet feel great.

I'm not sure about those inseam lengths but I can offer this.... I'm 6'4" & 225 lbs. I wear an XL. On me that suit fits like it was tailored for me.

The talk about boots reminded me that I need to replace my year old Rockies.

They look perfect on the outside and they're about as comfortable as a boot could be but somehow they've developed a horrible leak in both boots. If I stand in slush in about 2 minutes my feet are soaked. Sounds like I need to check out the BATA boots and the Cabelas boots G suggested. Thanks guys.

As an aside, I just checked on the weather for the weekend and we're going to get a nasty cold front. If your gear isn't up to snuff... this will be a good weekend to stay home. We get to look forward to a balmy high of 13 degrees next Tuesday.

Unless you wear a 36+ inch inseam jean, 31" will be a perfect fit for most. Bibs are worn over jeans, and are not to be tight against the jeans, in the crotch (remember when they ride up, you pull down on them) A 31 inch inseam will work perfectly for 30-36 inch inseams, which covers about 95% of the populous. Even a guy with a 36+" inseam, will not notice, because typically, you have big boots on, when wearing them, and they go to the top of your boots. I know when I put my GameHide bibs on, without my boots, I walk on the bottom of the bibs, but when my boots are on, they are perfect

James HolstAdministrator
I have plenty of length in the inseam and I normally wear a 34 or 35 inch inseam in jeans. Another thing with the Snosuit that really makes the fit and functionality GREAT is the pant gaiter at the bottom of each leg. The gaiter is a little longer than the outer leg of the suit so when you do bend over or flex your knee there's no way to get any snow or cold up the pant leg.

The jacket uses this same type of gaiter to go around your waist to keep snow and cold from coming up your back when you ride snowmobiles or when you bend over.

The attention to detail is impressive.

I agree with Scott on the snosuit- I also spend the majority of the winter on ice- and this suit is built for the ice- Great product!

Now, I will disagree with Scott- which doesn't happen often if ever-
I have tried the BATA bunny boots- the white ones, the black ones, and I have tried every other boot on the market- cabelas brands, ice kings, ice stalkers, danners... you name it, I have a pair collecting dust in the closet.

I found steger mukluks this year, and they are the WARMEST, most comfortable boots, I have ever worn. The reason being, is they don't constrict your blood flow, and they are extremely light, so your feet don't get wore out. The bunny boots are way too heavy for me. These are litteraly a fraction of the bunny weight. Literally!

Quote:

These boots have been worn by numerous expeditions from the North Pole to the South Pole, and on the Iditarod Race Trail in Alaska.




If you know anything about the Iditarod Race Trail in Alaska, then you know these boots have to perform way better than any type of "winter" conditions minnesota can produce.

I am they guy that has two pair of rubber boots for bowhunting- one insulated at 800 grams, and one at 1500 grams. I only get to wear the 800 grams if the temp doesn't drop below 40- If it is 40 or colder outside, I have to wear the 1500 gram boots, and my feet STILL GET COLD. I even have cold feet sitting inside the house, I have to wear slippers around the house during the SUMMER.

I am 100% sold on these boots- there is one downside, they will get "wet" if you don't "snowproof" them. However, I would rather deal with that, then going off the ice early because my feet got cold at 10 am-
And, I am not sponsored by steger...

ice armor blue here and love it...its just right and when I know its going to be super col I put a layer of fleece on underneath and take it off as the day warms..cant go wrong with ice armor in my opinion

I have a new Snosuit so if there is anyone in the Rochester, Mn area that wants to take a look at it just send me a pm. I haven't been out in it yet as trying to shake a bad cold that has me worn out by the time I get off work. But the features of the suit and the way it feels when I tried it on makes me feel VERY good about the suit. It feels warmer than any other brand I own from just trying it on.
Thanks, Bill

You don't want to tie Bunny Boots, I leave mine open, just slip them on and off. I wear one size larger than my shoe, and you have to have room for your feet to breath or the boots won't do any good. For $30 you won't find a better value

I looked at the Snosuit website, clicked on the "retail outlet" button and only Thorne Bros showed up. I hope he can get some more retail support. He's doing a good job marketing/advertising this year, so hopefully he can state his case to the buyers and get some shelf space. It would be nice to try a suit on!

So did I..18 years ago $110 for my first pair.

I got one heck of a deal on an Ice Armor suit. There was a three hour sales for ladies only at Glen's Army/Navy. I sent the FW and she got me the two piece suit for $150.00. Yes the whole works for $150.00.

I have both bunney boots and Ice kings. Both are plenty warm. Bunney boots are a fraction of the cost of ice kings. My problem with the bunney boots where they hurt my feet after a day of use. Might of had to small of size. I think they are both good products.

Have any of you guys looked at keeping you core temp warmer to help with keeping hands and feet warm. I would think that even if you have good boots a cold core may still cause those outer limbs to feel cool. Need to make sure to keep the sweat away from your torso. get rid of the cotton tee shirts and get a good wicking base layer. Twice so far this year I had forgot to get rid of the t shirt before heading out and found myself getting cold even with all the other cold weather gear. Getting that wet tee shirt off and putting everything else back on and I was good to go. A wet cotton shirt will keep you cold in the winter even if you have the right stuff on over it.

I also got a new pair of boots when i got my ice suit. I got a pair of Irish Setter 1600 gram Buck Trackers. 100% water proof and my feet are FINALLY warm and dry on the ice!

I didn't realize how pleasant it can be out there with a good new suit and new boots - best investments I've made in a LONG time! These boots are like walking around in tennis shoes ... at least I think so. I tried on a bunch at Cabela's and this was the one I really thought felt the best. They were list about $190 or so, but they had a boot sale so it was about $120 or so. Love 'em!

I'd say anything in the 50's (minimal activity) would be too warm. The vents are a marvelous features of this suit and go a long way to helping a guy moderate their core temp.

So I would say mid-october through late April for this suit. Anything in between and you'll need to break out the rain gear.

It isn't possible at this time as the stitching would allow moisture to wick into the inner layers of the garment. Any stitching would need to be done prior to the final assembly so modifying existing garments with embroidery would compromise the integrity of the product.

the snosuit is listed on ebay too.

The sizing chart lists the inseam as 31" on everysize. Is this right?




After talking to James and Scott, I also got the Snosuit. I got the XL bibs and coat. I am only 5'10, 200 lbs and with the suspenders tightened up all the way it fit me well. The coat fit well, with plenty of room to move. I thought the arms were a little long at first but when I used the velcro strap to tighten up the sleeve, it fit very well. It seems like the sizing is pretty versatile since the same size worked for me and for James. And with temps around zero here, I got to test it out. Everything these guys have said about it is true. I'd definitely recommend it.
