Ice Fishing Tips -Check your local regulations! > Dressing for ice fishing



If anyone has or knows a manufacturer that makes a good bib, let me know what and why.  They really should consult their customers because I have a hard time figuring out WHY:  1) they don't make the sippers unzip up past the knees so I can easily get into them 2) why they make them without making a cross-hatched of material or some other hook to hang them and use elastic straps that don't hang and stretch.  3)Make a one-size leg that needs special attention to adjust. Instead, use an adjustable nylon skirt at the cuff and make sizes to fit. 

Anybody got these bases covered???

Most have zip to hip ...adjustable in seam.. adjustable shoulder straps ...Striker Ice ...Eskimo ...Ice Runner ...Piscfun ... to name a few .

Bullpine, I just posted a review on my Eskimo Keeper Parka & Bibs. Not sure off hand about the hang up loop, but the legs unzip all the way to the hip, and the leg length is adjustable. I will check on the hanging loop when I get home and let you know. I just got them for Christmas, but so far I am really impressed.

Go with striker ice bibs you will be happy you did.

I checked for the ability to hang the Keeper bibs, and they do have a loop sewn into the upper back panel of the bibs. It is just a simple fabric loop, so I am not sure that I would rely on it to hang them if the bibs were soaking wet. Mine have gotten rid of light moisture from perspiration after a long drag pretty well so far. But if I were planning on wearing them day after day, I think I would come up with a heavy wooden hanger and attach a couple heavy clothes pins to it. I think it would help them hang and be able to be more open for better air circulation to dry.
