I was just wondering what your thought were on the Bass Pro Shops 100 MPH all weather suits?
I have some friends that use them and like them. I need to buy one and will be looking at them.
Check out the Cabelas Guide Wear suits also.
For that kind of cash. Look up Artic Armor if you fish in cold weather also. AS it will also keep you warm along with float you and 2 other buddy's in a coat and bibs only weight 5 lbs.
I just bought the Bass Pro "Pro Qualifier" gore-tex rain jacket. It looks to be just as good and a bit lighter for warm weather. Still pricey at $190.00 but cheaper than the 100mph suit. It got rave reviews in bad weather. You can purchase a zip-in liner for really cold weather. I already have a set of good bibs so this ought to finish me up for a while. I have been planning on making this purchase for a long time. Last time I fished in the rain it made up my mind to get it over with and stay dry.
I'd also check out Cabela's Guide Wear before you buy the 100mph, probably basically the same stuff but you don't have to look at a BP logo with that funny looking fish on it. The pro qualifier doesn't have the funny fish on it either.:wink:
Thanks for the input BOC brothers. I broke down and bought one this week, I love it so far now to try it out in some cold weather. Look out winter blues!!!
I was looking at these as well, but also wondered about how effective they are for cold weather.
One person mentioned the Ice Armor suits. But how are the BPS/Cabelas suits for warmth, or are they mostly rain suits?
Gander mountain and Cabelas have them on sale. I love them. They are all very similiar. You will not get wet and the wind will not get thru.
After spending 4 years as an arctic infantryman I bought the lightest goretex bass pro had. That way I can use it in the summer for rain and then mimic the same goretex setup we used for the arctic. Just use a polypro under layer under the goretex and your good for anything the lower 48 can throw at ya. Has worked great for me.
bought the gander mtn bibs for half price last week. They were $49. They are not gore tex but supposed to breathable. They stayed dry this weekend in high winds and sideways rain and they are not hot.
We sure have come a long way from our grand dad's flannel
aint that the truth. 200 rain suits, 200 rod and reel, 30000 boat, and all this for what you ask. just to catch the same big cats our grandfathers cought with a little bit of nothing:smile2: funny how things change
