One piece snowsuits...

How do you feel about one piece snowsuits? Like do you think they look cool, stupid, would you wear one? Im thinking about getting one for the upcoming season cause i think it would look cool and you'd never get snow up your back again

They were the total hotness in the 70's from the pictures I've seen. Nowadays however, they tend to be geared towards older skiers. Really though, who cares? If it fits you and you're comfortable wearing it, then rock that shit proudly and loudly!

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

Uhhh, I have a snowsuit and wear it every powder day. It's super comfy and comes in really handy when I do my patented end-over-end powder cartwheel after leaning to far forward on a drop.

I really don’t care what people think of me when I wear it because it works well and I bought it 70% off....so piss off if you don't likey.

However, I find that a lot of people really like it. I get a lot of looks (some likely good and some likely bad) but I get a lot of comments from people that genuinely seem to like it. My favorite example was some Kiwi girl working at Whistler.... “Wow, that full-suite is hectic!!” and then she ran and got her friend and they admired my steez from afar as I sat down with my chili cheese fries.

I don’t have any pics of me in the suit, but it’s not the 70’s style….it’s this bad boy.....jealous?

It totally makes sense, especially for powder days and really cold days. Not really my thing though.

Problem is that when you say "One Piece" people think of the 70's fashions. <shudder>

The Urban Camo looks fine. BTW Schmitty, you can have the end-over-end, but I've trademarked the 270-to-cab-snow-angel.

I think the New ones from Norrona are bang on, Gore-tex'd to the eyeball (literally) with Gore-tex pro shell stretchy stuff, very vivid block coloring on a minimalistic no nonsense hard core one piece that's built to last and comes with a 28k waterproof rating, massive RET 4 breathability rating and its 100% windproof, as well as other useful features like wrist gaiters, etc etc. Only thing is they aint cheap. £800Gbp and that's with discount

The proof is in the pudding i know, mine is on order, i will report back once i have had chance to use and abuse it!!
