I received the Striker Hardwater bibs while I was away deer hunting. I returned home today, got the chance to look them over.......very impressed with them......thanks for all your assistance.
Only issue I have was the instructions for inseam adjustment......poorly written....had to watch a YouTube video to understand how to adjust them.......minor issue but the quality of the product isn't reflected in their instruction of a patented feature. I am sure I will enjoy these for years......again thank you for all of your time and assistance , I will be sending all my fishing buddies to your site. Lorin


Are you considering trading up for a new ice fishing jacket and bibs? If so, consider Striker Ice. The IDO team has had an opportunity to check out and use nearly all the gear Striker Ice offers, and we haven’t been let down. The team at Striker really did a stand up job developing this year’s line up of suits for both men and women. Here are just a few features of the Striker Suits that we really like (not enough room to name them all)!

Striker Ice suits offer Sureflote buoyancy material throughout the jacket and bibs. Sureflote does just what it sounds like, if you fall through the ice, the suit is designed to keep you afloat at the surface.

The outer shell’s of Striker gear range from 320D to 600D Waterproof/Breathable material. Really tough stuff!

YKK 2-way heavy duty (10 gauge) front zipper. These zippers stand up in all weather conditions, iced up or not.

Shock cord drawstring at waist and hem provide superior adjustability. Provides you with the right fit.

Extended Lycra inner wrist cuffs. These are awesome for keeping the snow and wind out of your sleeves!

Heavy duty storm flap protects front zipper from wind and water. Another well though addition to the suits to help you stay comfortable in the elements. Nick Cox

Reviews from Striker Brands Website . . .


"Love the suit. The wipe towels and the beverage/bait holder are super. I find new features evertime I wear it."

"I can't believe how comfortable your floater suit is to wear. I just open the vents when I work up a sweat hiking to my spot. Nice product."

"The magnets on the flaps are pretty neat. I had to look online at the videos to figure out all of the cool features. Love it."

"After watching the ads I finally bit the bullet and bought one of your Striker suits. I decided to give it a test in my pool and I couldn't believe it. It was like I was wearing a life jacket. No more worries about stepping on bad ice for me. This is going to be a life save to somebody and you should be proud of that!"


"My buddy was yapping so much about how great his new Climate suit was that I had to buy him lunch to shut him up! Now I am going out to buy my own!"

"It was pretty funny when the rest of the crew had to warm up in a shelter while I remained perfectly warm outside. We were doing a photo shoot and the other guys were wearing the top suits made by the other brands. Temps were below zero and winds were howling at 30 MPH. I am sold on the Climate suit!"

"Just wanted to drop you a line and tell you how impressed I am with my new Striker Ice Climate floating suit. It is by far the warmest suit I've worn and the fact that it floats is priceless. I am looking forward to wearing it for many seasons to come. Keep up the good work!"

"I really do like your coat. I staying as comfortable have been in the boat this December perch fishing in 40+ mph winds! Never was uncomfortable. Either too warm or cold. (Michigan ice this year has been a very sketchy) Also I just got back from a 4 day ice fishing trip in the northernest part of Michigan. The jacket worked great for a trip of up and down temps."

"I spent all of last sunday kneeling in deep slush while staying bone dry."

"I've had a chance to wear your clothing a number of times in the last few weeks and have to say that I have been very impressed. The feeling of safety that you get while out on the ice is unbelievable and overall the suits have been fantastic!"

"I love the suit! Thanks again!"

"The Climate suit is awesome. I have worn most of the competitor's suits and they don't even come close. I really like the jacket liner. I wore it all winter as an everyday car coat. I sold all of my other stuff."

"Unbelievable is all I can say. I just went out on the ice with one of your sales reps. He suggested I try out the Climate suit. It was -2 degrees with a 20 mile an hour wind. When I said I would bring my portable shelter, the rep said "No Need". Bewildered, I agreed to give it a go. I was totally impressed. We did very well during our hour and a half mission, and I stayed toasty warm the whole time. Now I have tried all the other brands (because ice fishing is my life), and regardless of price nothing matches up to the Climate. And I get a virtually free softshell jacket to wear separately (the liner that comes with the jacket). I AM SOLD!"


"Just wanted to tell you that I was out with my dad fishing on some questionable ice a while back. Luckily, I convinced him to wear my new Striker Hardwater suit. Well, he fell though the ice and went in the drink. He just bobbed there in the open water and I was able to pull him to safety. Thanks Striker Brands."

"I had to do a project in my garage with the temps at -10 (putting hyfax on the ice sled). I decided to try out my Hardwater outfit and I must say that even at below zero temps, I was able to take off the jacket! And as for the bibs, it felt like I was kneeling on carpet even though I was on ice cold concrete. Wow!"

"I spent all day in wind, sleet and then snow. I barely noticed how nasty it was because I was wearing my Hardwater suit. I have yet to find conditions cold enough to beat my Striker suit. This thing is a real furnace. Thanks."

"I've had a chance to wear your clothing a number of times in the last few weeks and have to say that I have been very impressed. The feeling of safety that you get while out on the ice is unbelievable and overall the suits have been fantastic!"

"I love the Hardwater suit. I wear it at work perched 60 feet into the air on a derrick rig. I don't even notice the cold."

"Thanks Striker Brands for donating the Striker Hardwater suits for our trans Siberian Ural motorcycle trek last January. We were the only team that didn't nearly freeze to death. You got some great international exposure and we avoided freezing to death!"

"Thanks Striker for outfitting our entire emergency response team. The trick is going to be getting my crew to not keep taking the suits home to wear ice fishing. I don't blame them."


"I just used your Prism Ice suit for the first time today and I loved it. It was 5 below and windy and i was plenty warm. Thank you for the great suit."

"Suit arrived and it has been awesome. It showed up on Friday. Thanks again for getting it there so quickly. My fishing buddies all asked, "Wow, what suit is that?" They liked the colors the quality."

"Fianlly, a women's ice fishing suit that doesn't fit like a butchered up man's suit. I love it. My husband likes it too."

"I love the drop seat feature on my Prism bibs. It saves lots of embarassment! Thank you."


"Holy shnikes, man! It looks to me like you got every single thing right. Tons of great features, some new to the whole ice fishing suit scene. As a shorter legged fella, I was particularly impressed with how the bibs adjust from a 38 inseam up to a 30 without any one being able to tell they are rolled up. Stopping the zipper at the 30 inch inseam length and using snaps beyond that is a stroke of genius."

"Went out on the ice yesterday specifically to shoot shots in the gear. Still think it's the best stuff I've every used!"

"This is by far the best choice for the serious ice angler. Not too heavy and loaded with trick features. The adjustable bibs with the super ultra deluxe knees are the envy of all my pals (until they bought their own)."


"I just used your Guardian suit and I must admit, I was pretty aprehensive about this suit. It feels so thin that I really doubted whether it would keep me warm. Well I was plenty surprised when I was out on the ice on a pretty cold day. It was hovering around zero. I only had a sweatshirt on under my jacket and I was very comfortable. I even layd down on the snow and took a nap. Nice suit!"

"I was able to test out the Guardian suit on Lake Superior last fall. Even though the wind was biting, I stayed warm and dry. This Guardian suit is way underrated. I love it because I can wear it for three seasons. I just have to add a layer for ice fishing up here in the north country."

"I am very impressed with your Guardian safety suit. I decided to get one for each of the kids so I don't have to worry about them getting into trouble. They don't whine and I don't worry... perfect! Small investment for a great product."


"I didn't believe it. The ads say that these Climate gloves are not only waterproof but also immersion proof. I have tries the other brands that are supposed to be waterproof and when you get them near the water you're soaked. Well, I decided to be bold and dip them right in the icy water through my fishing hole, expecting to be disappointed. Holy Moly, I stayed completely dry. You guys should charge 100 bucks for these because they are worth it!"

"I love my Climate mitts. They don't look like much but boy are they warm. The synthetic palm doesn't get wet like my leathers do.

"Hey guys, these Second Skin Gloves are awesome.  Dip them in water and my hands are dry. Magic!"


I just got youir Striker Ice Windbreaker Beanie. My wife tried it on and immediately claimed it as hers so I am ordering another.

*These are some of the reponses we have gotten from REAL customers who have tried our products and loved them enough to tell us.

"I couldn't be more pleased with my experience with Carol and Outfit 2 Fish. After I changed my order several times due to my own indecision, Carol never lost her courteous demeanor and worked diligently to get my order just as I wanted. Her experience in dealing patiently with an indecisive customer (me) was extraordinary and commendable...would highly recommend anyone to use the very professional services of Outfit 2 Fish..a most pleasurable and fulfilling experience from all angles of completing the purchase...highly recommended by the supplier ( she was representing."  Sincerely, Boyd

"Received my order yesterday. Good job on the shipping. That came pretty quick. Wore them fishing  today in 35 degree weather with 15 mph winds. We absolutely love them. Thank you so much for helping us pick out the gear. Hard to find good people these days! 
Thank you again!" Aaron

"The bibs arrived yesterday!! Jake is very happy with the fit, and looking forward to staying warm in the below zero temps Friday night! Thanks for your follow-up and great customer service! I think my other son will be ordering a pair soon...." Erika

"I've owned both
Arctic armor and the Striker Climate suit. Both suits float which was a must for me and the Arctic Armor was nice, the Striker climate suit is much warmer. It basically has a north face jacket that you can remove, vents everywhere to prevent overheating. I gave my Arctic Armor to my brother and it does the job but this stiker suit is everything you want!!"

Striker Ice Predator Jacket - "Excellent quality. Perfect for late season ice fishing and spring and fall open water fishing. I also own the Striker ICE coat and bibs for the coldest winter weather and it's the best ice fishing clothing I've ever owned. Quality and price better than anything else on the market."

"I was finally able to head down to Montana to pick the suit and it is awesome!  I can't wait to get out fishing with it! Thanks again"

"I have this suit. works great. bibs are extremely warm. i walk to all my ice holes and i have to open the zippers on the bibs when i walk or i'll be so sweaty once i get to my spot that i'm uncomfortable. i use only my polar ECWS under the bibs. with the jacket, i use the polar ECWS under a fleece and then the jacket. i haven't been cold yet and i don't fish in a shack. well worth the money."

"Checked out arctic armor ended up buying the Striker because they had tall sizes and some of the features I liked a bit more the key decision point was getting the sleeve and inseam lengths.

It won't get a lot use anymore this season on the ice but I am sure it will get used in the boat with the runs starting for open water."

"I love mine and actually have an extra set of large bibs"

"I bought the Striker Climate suit about a month ago. I am glad I purchased it. Very warm, windproof, waterproof, comfortable, etc, etc. I was looking to get a new ice suit this year due to losing some weight and my old ice suit now being too big. Then when guide Jim Hudson passed from going though the ice, I wanted a suit that would float. From all the reviews I read and the features of the suit, I went with the Striker suit. It won't make me take any more risks on ice, but will give me some peace of mind on the ice (because NO ice is safe)."

"I just have the Styker bibs and the couple times I have been out in them I have been impressed"

"I bought a Striker Ice Hardwater suit a little over a week ago. I think it is a awesome suit and worth the money. I have been out when the wind was blowing and did not get cold at all. I like the way the suit was designed and the pockets are great. It also breaths well and you can vent with the arm pit zippers and also the bibs have three zippers on each leg so you can vent where you want. I have heard on another site that people are buying Striker when they replace there AA suits. I would recommend the Striker Hardwater suit. Very warm and water proof. It's also nice to know that it floats like the AA suit."

"Kept me plenty warm with a long sleeve shirt in below zero degree weather, the reflective stripping is coming offafter just two months of use which I really liked that feature for walking around in the dark in remote villages in Alaska. I think the worse comditions I actually went out in temperature wise was a of -25 or so with blustery winds on the snow machine for a quick ride to the store and back. I had a cotton tshirt and fleece sweater on and was plenty warm. Walking to quarter mile with same stuff on and I was roasting and had to take off my sweater and open the vents. The sleeves were plenty long so I would just keep mitts in my pockets for when my hands would get cold again. I liked all the pockets too. Going out in the blowing snow and my iphone never got wet, I spoke directly with the man who created this line of coats and he was so helpful with how it should perform and what size to get as I am a woman and so sizing is different. I am 5'7", 265lbs with a chest measurement of 55" and the 3XL was plenty big. Lkke I said the arms were long but with the velcore closres they were fine. I really am satisfied with this coat. My only complaint would be that after opening the arm vents the wind would come through the right arm after both vents were closed. I imagine it was coming through the teeth in the zipper. Not a big deal but weird to feel a slight breeze on one arm in back when vent was closed."
