"An unexpected bonus that I’ve found is how much I’ve used my Artic Armor in the open water season. I spent approx 12-14hrs on the water this weekend driving several miles in the freezing temps, and I was always comfortable (except for maybe my toes, time for new boots I guess). It’s amazing how windproof the material is."
"This product is so well worth the money that you spend on it. I wish I would have had one for the last 15 years."
"Some of the best money, if not the best, I have spent on cold weather clothing ever. And yes it floats!"
"Overall great suit...and the peace of mind that if floats when I'm sitting on little ice is priceless."
"I wore mine out this morning cleaning the driveway. I know it was not below 0, but I stayed very warm and very comfortable.”
"Tonight was a great test for the Arctic Armor suit on Upper Red. Nine mile sled ride, drilled holes and hole hopped/kneeled on flooding ice for six hours and then a nine mile ride back across the lake in 10 degree weather. I stayed warm and comfy the entire time, used to be the ride back would do me in."
