This may save your life

I found this very interesting a few years ago. I saved it and review it before I set foot on the ice each season. Even with proper planning and extreme caution, one must always be prepared for the worst case scenario.

Great video...showed this to my Scout troop a couple years back....

I think the guy is nuts for going in in the 1st video but it does show it properly

Thumbs up

I think that by watching that video, panic can be eliminated. Knowing what is happening to you and what will happen helps one to keep one's head. What a great service he did.

He that would make his own liberty secure, must guard even his enemy from oppression; for if he violates this duty, he establishes a precedent that will reach to himself.

I watch these kinds of videos every year. I have been on the ice since I was 10 or so. I can say that I have never witnessed a fall through. But it's on my mind every single time out even on 2-3 feet of ice. I did pick up the artic armor bib and jacket last season for added safety. I will do a full review in this forum as soon as I jump in the drink with it on. It will be soon and before the ice comes just to see how good it floats. From what they claim and what the vids show its a no brainer. I got a NICE deal because they decided to sell Green Bay Packers colors. Check this out and consider it. Plenty of proof in the pudding.
