« on: Nov 19, 2013, 06:58 AM »
im looking at the expedition anorakk ice suit, and Im wondering if anyone out there has one and can comment on the quality of it, or anything else that might be nice to know about it. It looks like a really nice suit for the money, but im just wondering if its too good to be true? also id there any way to get in contact with one of their reps maybe to figure out the proper sizing?

I believe that Glen's sells them and they are a sponsor .You could try their website and or call them.

They are the best suit for the money that's made.  I dare anyone to compare it to a Clam Ultra Suit or a Sno Suit and not purchase the Anorakk.  3 Year warranty on them.  MN Company.  Once a few people have these they are going to be the most sought after suit out there.  I've attached the size chart below.

Its here. Its a thing of beauty.  It will work.  Well constructed at first glance, something I can't say about other suits I have witnessed.

 I ordered one a couple days ago. It appears to have the features I want. Got it for 239.- from Glen's and hope to be using it by the weekend.


 Update: Received the suit from Glen's and it looks like it will do the job. Only issue for some may be that the Anorakk logo was replaced by an embroided Glen's Army Navy one on both the Jacket and bibs. No big deal to me but the 239.- suit is not exactly as pictured. Just a head's up...

I just ordered the set for $199.00 shipped. You can't beat that price and everything I was able to find on this suit, says it is awesome. I have been looking for an insulated suit for a while and I sure hope this is all it is said to be. If it is, the entire suit just cost me less than a jacket was gonna cost me. I am very hard on my equipment so I will report back after the season on how it holds up. Also it is always cool to support our sponsors.

 Wore the suit this weekend in single digit weather with a hoodie and warmup pants underneath and was fine. Padded Knees are nice as are all the pockets. So far I'd give it 5 out of 5. Just wish I knew where to pick it up for 199.-. I paid 239.- but am very satisfied.

Going to really have to look into this. I am in search of a good ice suit and for just cold weather wear.

Well I took a chance an bought one of these suits this week. It arrived yesterday. I opened the box and have been nothing but impressed with it. Quality made, feature packed - and WARM. Looks good too. When I got home we had temps of -10 with windchill down to -23. I put my suit on over some sweat pants and a t shirt and sat outside for over an hour completely comfortable.  I haven't had it out on the ice yet, but in looking it over about 100 times (like a little kid with his favorite toy) I'm sure I won't be disappointed at all.  Price is great - $199 at Glen's and a 3 yr warranty to boot.  I'll try and give an update post early next week after I wear it a couple of days on the ice this weekend.

 I've had the suit now for almost a month and have used it in weather down to minus single digits and up to 30's with rain. No complaints whatsoever.  :tipup: :tipup: :tipup: :tipup: :tipup:

 I give it five flags up.

Hey all! Newbie here to IceShanty.com as well as proud new owner of the Anorakk Ice Suit. Been away from ice fishing for some 30 years and decided it was time to get back into it. I can honestly say that after much research as to cost, type, features and insulation quality, this Anorakk ice suit is the cats pajama's! Warm, comfortable, loads of pockets and easy to put on and take off! Price I paid was 199.99 with free shipping. This suit stands up well against the big name suits in features and is, in fact, sewn at the same place the big name suits are made at. Extremely happy to be back on the ice and wearing a stylish and warm well made ice suit! Bring on the fish!

I ordered mine last night from Glens , it was $174.99 & free shipping . Heard nothing but good things about the suit so it seemed like a good decision . Will post how it works out .

Just got the suit this week and took it out first time yesterday. Only two complaints:

1. Would be nice to have cuffs in the sleeves.

2. Needs flaps for the front pockets - reason being that we wound up in a snowstorm/blizzard which lasted for about 1 1/2 hours. With my back to the wind the front pockets wound up filling with snow which gave my waxies quite the chill I would imagine. Didn't realize it was happening as I was using plastics since the bite was on pretty good. Bite slowed so decided to go back to bait and yikes pocket full of snow.
Other than that the suit is a nice upgrade from the one piece carhartt suit I had been wearing.

A gazillion pockets to choose from now you know bait goes in one of the inside pockets to stay warm and lively or at least not chilled. I haven't worn mine on ice yet but it is pretty sweet if heavy.  I put all loose things in zippered pockets on ice. I still love snow bibs for their heat and light weight and have took the dip a couple times they float long enough to pop back on top.

I have been looking at this suit but only need the jacket. Does anyone know what the cost for just that is?

I can only find full suits.
I don't care how tough you are. If your 3 yr old daughter tells you to blow on her Dora Macaroni and Cheese to cool it down, you do it.
