Link to Eskimo Escape series house, you can see in the video how easy it is to set up
Junkie4ice and Mcgeer, Yes Eskimo already had the Outbreak 450, they now have the Outbreak 250, 450 and 650. Yes 3 different sizes, but they also have outfitted them with their Stormshield fabric which is essentially a 3 layer material that is equivalent to a 900 Denier, where the previous model was a 600 Denier. The new Escape Series houses have two side doors, not new, but a reintroduction for Eskimo. They actually had the Escape series around 2007 or so which had side doors and a skylight. The new Escape series houses have a true side door, but the sweet thing is you do not have to take anything apart to set it up or take it down. I have a video I made, I'll see if I can post it here. As far as the suits go, the differences are the amount of insulation in them from 60 Gramd to 100 grams. Also the DWR finish on them are different too ranging from a 5K/5K to a 10K/10K, and a 15K/15K waterproof finish. If you have specific questions message me. However I am heading to Lake of the Woods for a week starting tomorrow, and I'll have sketchy cell service there.
Yeah that buffalo plaid is pretty cool, I like the sweatshirts with that design.
They added the side doors to the flip overs too, new for eskimo not new for flip overs.
It looks like they did introduce two new sizes of the insulated Outbreak, with the full zip doors. I myself am waiting for the ‘sale’ page to populate.
Their buffalo plaid 60th anniversary pop up looks pretty cool tho!
Well I'm a little confused about what's so remarkable about Eskimo's release. Didn't they already have the outbreak with walk through door? So now it comes in 3 sizes, anything really new besides that?
Ice suits look interesting, hard to really tell what the difference is between each without seeing them in person.
gear ratio on that thing is 5:1... smokes the Freefall if trying to land fish fast.
Finally something that got me excited. New inline reels from Pflueger. Getting some high quality mixed into the inline ice reel market.
I've been hearing some chatter that they have some good stuff in the works so we will see what they came up with. I'm in the market for a 1 man flip, I'd be surprised if they came out with something new after just releasing the wide 1 inferno...3 years ago now? Either way I'll keep an eye out before pulling the trigger on the Otter XT hideout.
Junkie4ice, Eskimo’s release date is Sept 10th. Watch for it, you will be impressed.
