Thread: Vision icon zip

    I can't see the Ikons on the Vision site or catalogue for 2020. Looks like they might have been replaced with the "Koski"?

    Yes, thereís a new model for 2020. There are probably quite a lot of Ikons left in the retail supply chain.

    That's what I thought ! Might be a few bargains about !
    I have just packaged mine up for Diver Dave to service them.

    Guide's customer service is absolutely fantastic. It helps having an office staffed with fanatical (and expert) anglers.

    Diver Dave is trying to sort out mine , there is a problem with the zip and they may need a new one.
    Hopefully will know better in a day or 2.

    I've had both positive experiences with Ikons.

    My first pair bout about 7 seasons ago finally died a death at the end of last season. No biggie there. I used then for 6 season with one trip to DD.

    In between I got one season out of a zipped pair. Bought at the start of 2018 and leaked horribly on my first outing last season. It wasn't down to the seams though, the 5(?) layer material on the lower part had just delaminated totally any where there might be a slight crease. They're hanging up in the basement still.

    Haven't had a chance to go over and see Dave yet to see what he has in. It's ll down to size for me as I have stupidly long legs and many brands don't cater for that. If he doesn't have anything then there's quite a few bargains to be had in non zipped Ikons so will probably go down that route again.
    ..........so many flies, so little time!

    I'm surprised to see so many negative comments about Ikon Zip waders. Mine are about to start their 6th season on boat and bank without the slightest leak. I think it helps, despite what the experts say, that mine are standard length where they should really be short length. I have a spare pair sitting in the cupboard for the last 5 seasons and maybe I'll need to use them this year
