Ice Runner Escape: One-Person Sled House

The Ice Runner Escape is the BEST VALUE in a SPACIOUS, INSULATED shelter for the solo ice angler!

Compare size, features, and price and you will AGREE that the Ice Runner Escape combines UNMATCHED design and enclosed space with the LOWEST cost.

The Ice Runner Escape is built on a tough, low-profile sled. The collapsed Escape is ONLY 66" long x 30" wide x 12" high. This compact package weighs ONLY 38-pounds – that’s 50% LESS than many competitive models! One person can easily pull this roomy, insulated house without a snow machine!

But the Ice Runner Escape is not thin, noisy nylon. The Escape (like ALL Ice Runner models) is constructed with quality, warm 600 Denier FULLY INSULATED quilted material. You stay warm and enjoy added stability out on the cold, windy ice.

The Ice Runner Escape opens fast with a patented three-pole system. There are NO poles to extend – just flip the Escape open in less than one minute! The opened Escape gives you UNMATCHED 66-inches of headroom in a one-person house.

The added height of the Escape also provides the MAXIMUM fishable area. The Ice Runner Escape opens to an interior “floor space” that is 30" wide x 50" deep. That is 10.4 square feet of UNOBSTRUCTED ice! This HUGE ice area remains unobstructed with the EXCLUSIVE Ice Runner back door entry. You enter and exit from the REAR of the shelter via a huge zippered door and the dry sled. NEVER step on the wet, slippery ice and climb over your holes, rods or locator again.

The Ice Runner Escape is built for the way YOU fish. A gear pocket is sewn into the side wall. There are THREE huge, vertical windows – plus a SKY LIGHT – for maximum interior light and viewing tip-ups spread around the shelter. Or seal the windows tight to black-out the interior for sight fishing or spearing. Flaps are attached to the outside apron of the house to seal in the heat and eliminate drafts. There are also exterior anchor points if you need to stake out the house on glare ice. The exterior shell has side vents and reflective patches on all four sides. Ice Runner even includes a clear exterior envelope for your ID license info – if required in your state. We have included EVERY feature you asked for in this COMPLETE “run and gun” ice fishing sled shelter!

Ice Runner has also eliminated the limitations of fixed, heavy built-in seats. No seat is included because everyone fishes differently – and has different requirements from day to day. Add the folding chair, stool or bucket that matches your style. Store one or two seats depending on the day for fishing inside and outside the shelter. Enjoy the added space, versatility and ease of entry not possible with seats that are bolted to the sled.

The Ice Runner Escape is designed to be the PERFECT sled ice shelter for the active solo angler. It is warmer and more spacious than other flip shelters. There is space for three or more holes, plus tackle, a heater and locators. The light, low profile sled pulls easy and sets up faster than any other shelter. You can open the Escape halfway as a wind shelter on mild, sunny days. When you are done fishing, weighing less than 40-pounds, the Escape fits easily fit in the back of a small SUV. The Ice Runner Escape is the most spacious and versatile one-man ice shelter for the hard-core ice angler!

On top of ALL these standard features that make fishing easier and more comfortable, Ice Runner ensures the Escape is your BEST VALUE by including a FREE sled cover with every house. (That’s a $50.00 FREE bonus!) The middle zipper on the sled cover provides fast access to all your gear without removing the cover. The roomy sled will store your auger, heater and fishing gear with room to spare.

Ice Runner stands behind their loyal customers with FREE replacement windows for the life of your shelter. All the windows are replaceable (Velcro all the way around) and come with a lifetime warranty. Just send any cracked windows back to us for free replacement!

The Ice Runner Escape requires only minor assembly of the pole set. (See the assembly instructions below.) But - if you prefer or for gifts - let us assemble your house for you! Ice Runner will fully assemble your fishing shelter, so you only need to unbox it and go fishing! (Optional additional $50 assembly fee.)

Ice Runner gives you the option to add a tow hitch for pulling your Escape with your ATV or snowmobile. For added strength and protection when towing the loaded sled, Hyfax runner kits are also available for the Escape.

Compare size, features, and price and you will AGREE that the Ice Runner Escape combines UNMATCHED design and enclosed space with the LOWEST cost. That is why the Ice Runner Escape is the BEST VALUE in a SPACIOUS, INSULATED one-person ice fishing shelter. Order YOURS today!

    I love the new Ice Runner Escape one man! Great quality, easy set up! I altered the bottom skirt area. Instead of using the plastic clips, I used 1/4 Stainless Steel flat head screws with spacer on both sides and a locking nut on the insides. I love this quality unit, and know it will last many years. Easy to flip down and take off for another area of the lake!

    Ice House Escape

    Well made and fairly easy to assemble. Only issue was with the plastic push pins that attach the fabric to the sled. I broke 3 trying to set the pins but when I called the factory they sent out replacements right away. Great service.

    Best of the best Flip Over

    Posted by Patrick Lalor on Feb 3rd 2021

    This is a very well made Flip Over. Unbelievably light and between the fabric insulation and the black color it’s toasty warm and no need for a heater above 10 degrees . I’m very happy with this purchase.

    Perfect run and gun shack!

    Posted by Nick Anderson on Dec 12th 2019

    I owned the Explorer so I knew the quality would be there. What blew my mind is how much fishable space there is. Also the height! I can almost stand in mine!

    Ice House Escape

    Posted by Rodney Brewer on Dec 7th 2019

    Only reason I given this a 4 is I haven’t took it fishing yet, need ice !! It was very easy to assemble. The fabric is 600 and insulated very nice Quality. The windows are big and the plastic is guaranteed, free replacement. There’s plenty of room inside. It also comes with a cover and only weighs 38 pounds.
