Waterproof, windproof and warm, the Guardian is an all-around versatile, totally dependable choice for staying comfortable in milder, early or late-season conditions.

Windproof. Waterproof. Breathable.
For all-day comfort and protection on the ice, the Striker Ice Guardian Jacket features a one-two punch of topnotch weather-beating technology:
1) Thermadex® thermal insulation provides superior insulating performance with minimal loft. That means you get all the warmth, without bulkiness or added weight. How warm is it? Striker Ice uses a 1-10 Warmth Indicator Rating for their garments, with 10 being the highest rated garment. This Jacket is a 5, making it a versatile choice for all season. Perfect for early and late season, and great for layering during colder weather.
2) Hydrapore 5000 waterproof / breathable laminate lining with a superior 5000mm/5000g/m2 rating for resisting water penetration and for breathability.
For ice anglers, the risk of falling through the ice is real. That's why the Guardian Jacket features Striker Ice SureFlote technology for added safety and peace of mind while on the ice.
SureFlote traps air in closed cells constructed into multi-layer membranes to create internal air pockets for added buoyancy. An average sized adult needs 7-12 lbs of buoyancy to keep their head afloat. If you're wearing Striker Ice Bibs and a Jacket with SureFlote, you'll have approximately 10-12 lbs. of buoyancy depending on size and style. Enough to provide an average person with flotation assistance for up to two hours.
