Ninja Suit ???

Thinking about buying an Airblaster Ninja suit. Either merino wool or expedition grade.

Does anyone think they're any good?

Anyone know what size would fit a dude that's 6' 180lbs?

Cool concept, but it seems you can only get a full length one with a hood. My buddy has it and seems to love it. The version without a hood seem to only come with shorter legs that cutoff at the calf. I'd want a full-length version but without the hood.

Do you think the XL would be too baggy if I sized up? I prefer a loose fit, but not a baggy fit.

Yeah I was looking at that myself. I usually wear a hoody when I ride so a hood woulnd't be that big of a deal. But then again, I usually wear a hoody so that would mean 3 hoods now instead of 2. I really like the full body design though.

And the hood-less one doesn't come in expedition.

the hood is really thin and you can have it under your hoodie (so that it isnt sitting inside the hoodies hood) if you zip the zipper all the way up you can turn it down so it fits like a turtle neck or you can just leave it a little unzipped.
I am 6'2" 210 and the XL is baggy around the waist but fits everywhere else fine (im not a fatty) I also have a L which fits tighter but not to a point where I would complain.

I really like ninja suits....

When it's really cold you'll be loving the hood, under a helmet it's the warmest thing ever.

You should buy one. I have been out in -30 weather and was really warm, as my friends had to go inside and warm up.

Just got home from the hill and lounging in mine now. Love it. I have the regular, no merino or expedition.

I snowboard 5-6 days a week, every week and wear mine almost every time. The hood is bad ass when you need a bit of extra warmth on your face and head. Never gets in the way for me with a hoodie and shell. Next time you eat it in pow or it starts nuking snow down your neck you'll be glad you bought it.

You'll have to wipe backwards when you take a dump. I wear a medium and I'm 5'7 - 170. Fits perfect.

How well does it wick moisture? Any soggy feel from the sweat?
