Clam Outdoors first and foremost about safety and peace of mind for all the anglers who proudly wear the Clam colors. With the new Ascent Float suit, you now have a combination that combines internal buoyancy, with breathability, and the ultimate comfort. This is what we call the Clam Blue X Factor. Hello, my name is Jeff Andersen with Clam Outdoors. You know Ice fishing technology in ice fishing clothing has come a really long ways in the last 10 years. What once was putting on as many layers as you can, piling on the the cotton hoodies is now about heated comfort, flexibility, durability, waterproof and now your safety with a float suit. Let’s take a closer look at all the amazing features that the brand new Ascent Float Suit from Ice Armor by Clam has to offer The Ice Armor Ascent Float is more than just a cold weather suit it is a form of comfort and safety for any ice angler who chooses to wear it. Both the parka and bibs have the internal buoyancy assist technology, which means both garments are lined throughout to provide assistance with floatation if you were to ever fall through the ice or into the water, which for many can mean the difference between survival and grave danger. This safety feature and technology alone is something that Ice Armor and Clam Outdoors are extremely proud of. When breaking down the two components, you start with the Ascent Float Bib. Each set of bibs comes with a 300D water and windproof shell that is extreme breathable giving the angler extreme comfort in the even the most brutal of conditions. Its 150g removable Thinsulate liner along with its rapid drainage system allows a person to stay dry and warm as they are out in the elements. Additional features such as a 2 way front and leg zippers combined with magnetic storm flaps keep moisture and wind from getting inside, increasing the internal temperature you are maintaining to reach a comfort level on the ice. Combine all of that with an adjustable inseam and nylon suspenders and you have the ultimate in an ice fishing bib. The Ascent Float Parka is the perfect match with the bib. Much like the Ascent Float bibs the parka has a 300D shell that keeps water and wind off of you, but is also provides breathability keeping you from sweating underneath and getting cold. Its 210T taffeta lining, rapid drainage system, YKK Vision and AquaGuard zippers, removable hood, and 3M Scotchlite reflective elements are all additional bonus features in making this the best parka and suit on the market. To go beyond that, the parka has the same zipper technology that is found with the bibs keeping any additional moisture or wind from creeping in. Other practical features found on the Ascent Parka are a removable hood and a removable liner giving you a 2 in 1 coat that can be used for multiple seasons. The Ascent Parka comes in three different color combinations and the whole suit comes in sizes ranging from small to 3XL. I have literally chased fish thousands of miles across the entire Ice Belt I’ve fished in the worst rain, sleet, snow and cold weather The new Ascent Float Suit, is going to allow me to fish in elements like never before. But not only is it going to allow me to be in those elements, it’s going to keep me safe. So brutal weather, Bring it on!
