My baselayer usually consists of blue jeans & a T-shirt, no long underwear involved, just regular underpants, with a Burton Dryride Thermex hoodie & some Wigwam snowboarding/ski socks. For my outside layer, its a Burton White Collection Prizefighter (I think), and Burton Mountain Gentry (Heritage at the time) Poacher pants, with my Burton Profile mittens. Giro Bevel helmet, Smith goggles, and my trusty American flag bandana keeping my face warm. Lately, though, I've been able to go without the coat, it hasn't been that cold as of late. Can't forget the music, that comes from a pair of Skullcandy Titan earbuds.

MEC T3 underwear.
Shell pants and jacket...if its lower than -15C ill throw on an extra shirt.
ALWAYS my icebreaker belaclava....no exposed skin on the face makes for no sun/windburn (so the boss doesnt know what you do when youre "sick", lol)

If im cold, im not throwing down hard enough! The best way to keep warm is to shred like a madman!

Does it stretch nicely for ya? Is there spandex in the fabric?

You've seen my beer belly?!?

Not sure on the fabric, it fits well though... comfy to ride in.

I bought mine at the Nakiska pro shop so I was able to try it on first.

I normally wear a large jacket or medium t-shirt. My waist is 34" or so, chest is 42" and I bought a medium. The large fit but the medium fits just right...

gotcha. I am about the same dimensions from the sounds of it (esp considering the beer-gut comment). do you find it restricting at all in terms of reaching down for a grab? does it ride up/twist on you?

Yeah I'm 5'7" and about 170 pounds or so... 70 of that in my gut!

Doesn't affect my riding at all. I felt it for the first day or so, it felt harder to twist but I got over that quick. I think I ride harder now, do more grabs, bigger air, and attempt more spins than I did before wearing it.

Maybe the material and foam needs a chance to break in?!?

Yeah, just take the padding and hard plastic out first. Mine was starting to smell like hockey gear, the GF washed it for me now I'm less stinky.

Honestly though I bought it for the protection, and the side effect is I'm really warm. For full on spring riding I just wear the armor with no jacket.
