What do you wear to keep warm? I feel it’s finally time to buy something nice. I’ve just worn generic winter hats all my life icefishing.
Some of those hats will keep you warm, but they sure look funny. IMO.
Now ya toad us
I like a thick double knit rag wool in any combination with that... A wind break, keeps you warn even when wet, confidence in it working 100%...
(Field tested at O'Hare 40hrs./wk. for over 20+ consecutive yrs. down to minus 65 F wind chill polar vortex)
I’ve got a couple madbomber type hats. They are very warm IMO. Add a Balacava and you’re set for any weather.
If you can swing the moola then go for a genuine fur cap, raccon, muskrat, fox beaver lots of choices if you have the cash. If theyre made right they should be warm.
for warmth and flexibility the bomber style was my Dad's choice... fold up the ear flaps if that's too warm... but don't get a cheap knock off, get a genuine... they have a sale on some models now
I agree, the Elmer Fudd cap is cool looking, and a classic, but not sold on the warmth...
don't really ice fish anymore, but when I did, a beanie cap and hoodie
some browsing help
I usually just wear a hooded sweatshirt. I've found it to be quite warm and it is easy to pull off when I get in the shack or if I get warm while on the ice.
