I absolutely love mine. Personally, I don't think there is a better base layer. I've been wearing it for a few seasons now. I probably need to pick up a new one this year. You can only re-sew a crotch so many times.

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

Perfect! Thank you sir. I'm all in!

Did you go Merino? or the Synthetic?

Mine is of the synthetic variety. I've heard nothing but good things about the Merino though. I think I would just be too hot in the Merino on all but the most bitterly cold days.

I also use the synthetic ninja suit, they are awesome. I have the hooded and hoodless version, not a big fan of the hoodless due to them having shorter legs (guessing for spring riding)

I've been riding strictly with a Ninja Suit for four seasons. Wouldn't consider getting anything else. I had the synthetic suit for the first 3 years, and upgraded to the merino last year. The merino actually isn't that much warmer than the regular synthetic, but the fabric is much nicer against the skin and merino wool combats stink and bacteria much better - great for multi day trip or a weekend in the backcountry where you can't wash your base layer. They do have an expedition weight Ninja Suit for colder days though.

HI guys. Looking at getting one of these suits.
Is the Merino wool ninja suit worth the extra $70-$80?

It looks like they are the best base layer going at the minute.
Do they all have the hood or can you get them without?

Get the Merino if you can afford it - I have a Stoic 200 Merino hoodless ninja suit, and it was the best baselayer purchase I have ever made. Wicks moisture better than any of my synthetic baselayers, doesn't get stinky as quick, and temp is fairly well regulated IMO
