Default Striker Ice gear

I have been thinking about getting some new ice gear, like the looks of the striker stuff, been able to touch the preditor jacket local and it looks like nice quality gear. Anybody been using it or the hardwater jacket to give some feedback? any stores on the front range carrying it? Online it show 11 miles sports and a small fly shop in Montrose as only colorado dealers. Thinking it would double as good late season boat gear as well since it has some floation. Thanks

I got a striker ice jacket a few years ago online for real cheap, I think from red's or something like that. It's not the floating rated one, but its the best coat I've had so far. I rarely even jip it up, unless it's below zero degrees. I also got the floating bibs. They are too big in the waist and the knees are wearing a bit thin. Very warm and flexible, but the pockets suck and only have 2 that are small.
Get the coat! It's money

If you just had the floaty bibs on and you took a swim would your legs be up in the top of the water with your head down?

Maybe? I think any flotation would be good. But if it flips you upside down, you could be in trouble or pull the bibs down and moon everyone before you drown.

I have had the Striker Lite suit, no longer in production, for 3 years. Love it and it was well worth the money. I'm on my way home now from SD, spent 5 days fishing Waubay and a few smaller lakes in the area. With the addition of my lite base layer and a hooldie to my jeans and a long-sleeved t-shirt I was able to spend the whole trip fishing outside on the ice in the wind(let one of the other guys in our group that was under prepared wearing his hunting gear use my clam Kenai). I was never cold, in fact I kept the sides of the legs mostly unzipped most of the time to help regulate my temp(the 3 zippers help allot with that).

Here is a video for the company, https://youtu.be/zrOcOvv2lIw
