Plano, IL (December 3, 2014) -Walking on ice to fish is nice. An unexpected plunge into the drink is not. In fact, it’s a serious situation.
Odds are you’re not “that” angler who takes life-threatening chances on lunchmeat thin or rotted end-of-season ice. But as with any extreme outdoor activity, there’s always the possibility of plans going awry and you find yourself in dire straits. And time is of the essence when frigid water and wintry temperatures suddenly encase you. There’s no waiting around for your buddies or emergency crews.
This one’s on you… You are your own best chance of getting out alive.
This Self-Rescue initiative is evident in Frabill’s new I-Series ice apparel. Every new I-Series jacket and bib sports a detailed Ice Safety Label sewn inside. You’ll be informed before embarking about how to avoid breaking through altogether. The Ice Safety Label also provides life-saving information, just in case that unforeseen circumstance should arise.
Need to know the ice thickness requirements for when on foot or motorized transport? It’s there. How about a listing of the four critical steps to self-rescue? You betcha. There’s even a reminder to always carry ice picks – the single most important piece of ice-safety equipment you can own.
Speaking of ice picks, Frabill’s so serious about your wearing them at all times that it has included a FREE set of Frabill ice picks with every I-Series jacket. And, those essential life-saving picks aren’t just slapped in the packaging, but already fitted in the garment’s custom ice pick holsters for immediate access and out-of-the-way positioning while fishing.
