Frabill Commando Max Ice Shelter Review

Frabill Commando Max Ice Shelter ReviewBy far one of the most elaborate and extensive ice shelters on the market, the Frabill Commando Max can also be utilized for shuttling and storage. It gives the user 11 sq ft. of angling space, but more importantly it gives fishers organizational space and the utmost access to gear. Ideal for the single-man operation, the Frabill Commando Max Ice Shelter is fitted with numerous accessories to give you the finest experience possible.

To begin with, this shelter is fitted with a padded swivel seat. This provides comfort, a place to sit and is reinforced with aluminum to add durability. Next the shelter has a built-in air-exchange system from MaxVent, providing fresh air even in the coolest of atmospheres. Angling gear is accessible using three integrated hatches. The first is located in the front to provide a location for electronics. The second is designed for rods, holding up to 10. Finally, there is a center console area covering 13.7 square feet for the rest of your equipment. One thing to keep in mind, however, is that this shelter is imported.

Overall Review

I would rate my review of the Frabill Commando Max Ice Shelter as a 4 out of five stars. I had to dock this ice shelter 1 star during my review because it creates the illusion of being spacious enough for 2 people but it can actually get a little cramped in my opinion. However, it is still an extremely portable ice shelter that hold in the warmth very well and is rather easy to transport to many other types. So, in conclusion, the Frabill Commando Max Ice Shelter receives a total of 4 stars during my review and I strongly suggest you consider it when looking for you next portable ice shelter.
