Ok, I'm looking to pick up an ice hut for this next ice season. I have narrowed it down between an Eskimo Quickfish 3I and either a Frabill Bunker 210 or 250. I've heard a lot of good things about Eskimo, and the fact that i could pickup an insulated shelter for $220 is great. However, I saw that the Frabill huts have 44.5 sq.ft. of fishable space compared to the Eskimo's 34 sq.ft. The Frabill does cost more ($250 for only the top insulation, and $300 for full insulation), but 10 more sqare feet of fishable space sounds great to me. I just haven't heard anything about these Frabill huts. Are they any good? Does anyone have any experience with these shelters?

Also, are insulated shelters any more durable than uninsulated?

Thanks,
Collin

I have the QF 3 and its a castle for 2 people. Have fished 3 in it a few times but really you are looking at 1 hole per person at that point, if you have a heater going. Whichever one you get, make sure to upgrade the tie downs to the quick slide straps, or you will be chasing it after that first gust.
