Technical ice fishing apparel must deliver superb weather protection without hindering your mobility.
Start with your ice fishing jacket and bib. Always ensure your ice fishing coat is fully waterproof, rather than water-resistant. Jackets designated as waterproof are treated with laminates and coatings to provide total water-repellency.
When a garment is sewn, stitching creates needle hole punctures that can be penetrated by water and wind. Ice anglers benefit from outerwear that is seam taped or seam sealed. Seam taping provides warmth and water protection for long hours in extreme conditions, though it can minimize the breathability of your jacket.
Your ice fishing gloves are a critical piece of protection on your outing. Gloves with a texturized or silicone palm provide better grip in cold conditions. A cuff sleeve helps block out cold, while insulating, waterproof layers shield your skin from bitter temperatures.
You’ve got to be able to take on tough environments—and remain comfortable while doing it.
Articulated arms and legs in your bibs and jackets ensure your can maintain your mobility while staying warm. Choose a jacket and bib with elastic cuffing at the wrists and ankles, which holds your outerwear in place and helps keep out moisture and chill.
Ice fishing outerwear is often designed with ergonomics in mind. A neoprene insert in the knee, seat and elbow provides an extra degree of comfort. Brushed for fleece-lined interiors maintain natural-feeling warmth and comfort as you wait for a tug on your line.
Choose non-slip ice cleats crafted with rubberized material, which easily attaches to snow boots or regular footwear. Looking for more? Check out the entire collection of ice fishing equipment at DICK’S Sporting Goods.
