Thermal overalls and ice fishing suits

On this page you will find our range of thermal overalls and ice fishing suits that are excellent for ice fishing as well as other outdoor activities in the wintertime. Thermal overalls or an ice fishing suit is an important piece of equipment for the demanding and varying weather conditions in winter. They keep you warm and safe effectively even when the weather is freezing cold.

Thermal overalls or an ice fishing suit offers the best protection against cold during any outdoor activity in the winter. As vigorous physical exercise is quite different from ice fishing, where you sit still for long periods of time, the features required from thermal suits vary widely. Thus, the application for which you are purchasing the suit should be your first consideration. With this in mind, we have listed below three key factors that should be taken into account when purchasing a thermal suit.

Pay attention to these features when choosing thermal overalls or an ice fishing suit

Are looking forward to a brisk walk or outdoor activity on a winter's day? Or would you prefer ice fishing in freezing cold weather? Whatever your intended use is, our range includes perfect thermal overalls and ice fishing suits for your needs. To find the most suitable option for you, read our tips below on the features you should pay attention to when choosing a thermal suit.

1. Breathability

One of the features that sets apart thermal overalls and ice fishing suits is their breathability. Often our first thought would be to choose a suit that is as breathable as possible, but high breathability does have its disadvantages; materials that are more breathable also let out more heat. This means that when you are standing or sitting still, such as during an ice fishing trip, high breathability may do more harm than good.

Breathability is indicated as grams per square meter over a 24-hour period. This refers to the amount of sweat in grams passed through one square meter of the material per 24 hours (g/m²/h).

For example, if the breathability of a garment is specified to be 8,000 g/m²/24 hours, it means that over a single day, the garment will wick away up to 8,000 grams of sweat or moisture. A breathability rating this high is an excellent fit for vigorous physical exercise in the winter, as the material expels moisture effectively. On the other hand, for an ice fisher who mostly remains still, a rating this high may not be necessary.

2. Waterproofness

Another thing to keep in mind when choosing your ice fishing suit is waterproofness. A waterproof material prevents water from permeating it. It keeps rain and snow on the outside, while keeping you dry on the inside. If you intend to go ice fishing during a snowfall or are going to wade through snow or sit on a snowbank, we recommend choosing a waterproof thermal suit.

Waterproofness and breathability go hand in hand; the higher the waterproofness rating, the less breathable the material. Waterproof materials are manufactured to keep water on the outside. Waterproof materials are also airtight, as the density of the material means that there is less room for ventilation holes that would allow for breathability. Thus, you should make sure that the suit meets your breathability requirements when choosing a waterproof suit.

The waterproofness of a material is indicated in millimeters. The figure refers to the height of the column of water that the material can sustain before letting the water through. If, for example, the waterproofing rating of an ice fishing suit is 8,000 mm, the suit has been tested to sustain a column of water that is eight meters high before the water can permeate the fabric. The higher the number, the better the resistance against water is.

3. One-piece or two-piece suit

As has been said, thermal overalls and ice fishing suits are available in a variety of different designs. One important difference in terms of usability and wearability is the construction of the suit, i.e., is it a one-piece or two-piece suit. One-piece construction refers to a full body suit and two-piece construction to a combination of jacket and trousers.

The construction of the suit does not affect its features. The wearer’s preferences are the deciding factor here. Others feel that a one-piece suit is easier to use, while others prefer the option of removing the jacket where necessary. There is no right or wrong option, as this is a matter of taste. Think about your own requirements and preferences and choose the construction that is best suited for you.


If you consider the features listed above when choosing your thermal suit or ice fishing overalls, we are sure that you will find the perfect option for your needs.
