there's a lot of water/ice around the great lakes, i basically have a river in my front yard, with the mouth half a dozen houses further down, that leads into the georgian bay(eastern) half of lake huron. so i spend a lot of time on ice and studs are pretty much a must here. my hubby and i also wear full sets of the fxr FAST(makes yah float and drains if you fall in) gear as well.

I bought my daughter, wife, and dad all fxr gear with the FAST in it as we do ride alot of lakes and have to cross the river quite often. I'm the only one still wearing a suit without it at this point. Again its one of those things you hope you will never need but will sure be happy to have it if you do.

How do you find the fxr fast stuff for breathability. Years ago used to run the mustang suits but they would be soaked from sweat on the inside. Couldn’t stand it . Was interested in another floater system but am reluctant to get one.

this will be my first year with the adrenaline set, the jacket i've been wearing for years before that, a floater wasn't bad. i dress in light layers so i can change as needed and don't overheat. my hubby has had his team frx set for over a year, he doesn't get especially sweaty, though he can get hot(far better for warmth than what i was wearing last year). the areas we ride are either extremely cold(-20 or colder) or have a good deal of windchill(out on the ice).

hopefully someone else can give a better answer.
