Ice Anglers Find Shelter Under the Aegis of Frabill

Greek mythology tells us that Zeus and Athena were protected in battle by Aegis, the mysterious shield that thwarted incoming spears, axes and war hammers with divine efficiency.

Today, the guardianship of Aegis is available to ice anglers in the form of versatile and portable protection from ice, wind, rain and snow. The new line of easy-to-handle Frabill Aegis Ice Shelters delivers unmatched adaptability in a two-person ice-fishing shelter. Offering five different seating options and three levels of insulation, these compact, traditional front-entry ice shelters are easy to transport while providing surprisingly generous fishing space.

Frabill’s Modular Seating System (MSS) lies at the heart of the new Aegis’ versatility. Models are available with each MSS option offered by Frabill, including compact and lightweight Jump Seats; comfortable, swiveling Boat Seats; Padded Trunks offering contained and secure storage; swiveling Boat Seats on Trunks; or the Combo-Case Bench, which affords dual padded seating with a backrest over a handy built-in rod case.

Aegis’ options don’t end with seating. Anglers can also choose from two weight-saving, non-insulated Aegis models, a fully-insulated Aegis for maximum comfort and protection, and two top-insulated models that help keep heat contained while avoiding excess bulk.

Despite its size, weight isn’t a problem with the easy-handling Aegis. Each model is constructed over a stout yet lightweight thermo-formed sled. Additional weight savings on larger Aegis models comes courtesy of an all-new alloy frame that is 30% stronger, yet 30% lighter than traditional aluminum frames. Finally, weight-conscious anglers can also choose 300 Denier tent construction. The non-insulated model 2000 Aegis with 300 D construction and padded trunks weighs in at an incredibly feathery 53 pounds – quite an accomplishment for a full-featured two-person shelter.
