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

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

I got the floating coat and bibs last year at sportsmans warehouse and love them so far very warm with lots of smart pockets. I got the XL and the coat reminds me I need to loose some weight.If you are of a slim build you will love it because its not super baggy.

You'll like the predator suit. When I got my bibs I was worried they were to heavy and bulky because I do alot of walking on the ice. I found them to be real easy to move around in and they have good options for ventilating. I've never been to sweaty, or to cold in them. I've used them almost 40 times this year and have seen zero signs of wear an tear.

The gf and I love our striker hard water suits. it looks brand new besides where I melted it on heater. I've got 2 years on it. I also use it chasing eyes at night spring and fall on the yak. It's my favorite fishing investment.
