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.
How is the breath-ability? I sweat alot when I ride, even in real cold weather.

The only area I sweat in it is the spine protector area... That's why I wear a spring jacket now unless it's -10 C or colder. The base layer under it does get STINKY!!!

Yeah I was looking at the Canadian Cartel stuff unfortunately they didn't have the one thing I wanted which was pants!

I used to play in the park at Blue Mountain all the time, and I'd fall and get right back up again. I bruised my tailbone once and that had me off my board for a few days when I was 16, but otherwise it seemed like nothing really hurt!

Now I'm bigger, heavier, and more brittle, and after paying $1000+ for a season pass each year I want my moneys worth. So if armor keeps me on the slopes then it's worth it to me...

Awesome photo dude. Might keep this in mind when I get into the later years, thankfully I got a long way to go though.

Default Layer after layer

My cheap shit has no name or model
Feet: sock liner , sock , M4 hotronic foot warmer
Pants: Quicksilver pants, fleece pajama type pants, tighter fleece under layer basic thermal long John, base layer , exoffico

Top:quicksilver10,000 jacket with magnet instead of Velcro shell, light jacket, acrylic poly blend long sleeve, long sleeve base layer, long sleeveless basketball shirt , base layer tee shirt.

Hand : swany toaster leather mittens, with liners, hand warmers
Neck and head: neck gator, fleece balaclava, scarf, fleece ninja hood thing, hat with mask, helmet

I've only used all these layers twice , one blue jay day in vail and one storm at mammoth. The mammoth storm was epic no one was out on a weekend. First time I saw them running the cats on the runs all day. It was fresh tracks every run , the seven layers were worth it.

I could probably buy warmer stuff but layers also add to my cushion

  • TNF Shell
  • t3 base layer on the bottom and sometimes an extra set of tech shorts underneath

I basically use a combo like this with a different level baselayer depending upon how cold. Sometimes I go fleece vest versus nano puff, and I have a puff mid-layer jacket but tried wearing it once and it was too warm.
Where did you find the fleece liners? Im looking for something thicker than my thin warm weather inner liners with my OR mittens
