Here is a really awesome detailed review, after a full season of riding.

I love the one piece setup - they make a lot of them now that don't look like goofy 80s bright suits with cinched waists lol

I would LOVE to be able to rock a one piece straight up old neon one piece. I just can't pull it off. I can ride, but I can't ride like that. You need to be like best snowboarder on this mountain type good to be able to not look like a jackass if you're rocking this. You're either gonna look like a total boss or a complete jackass. There's no room for any gray area.

I switched to bibs a few years ago, i feel like this is the next evolutionary step:LOL:, but linvillegorge is right, you gotta be a great rider to pull it off, or a female :ROFLMAO:

Seriously though, how bloody practical would they be. One outfit you layer underneath, forget about powder or getting wet. My son has one, but he can pull its off. I'd love to get one but I also don't want to be that visible (able to be remembered) everywhere I go. If they get one like this, I'm in :).

I really don't get it, these just seem like more hassle than they're worth. I understand why people might want bibs but I've never been riding and thinking, "man, if only my jacket and pants were seamlessly glued together I'd be having a much better time." And that goes double for peeing in the lodge bathroom and having nachos and beer at the bar.

There is a onesie for sale at Comor in the Whistler Village. Not quite as "bright" as some of the disco-era stuff, though.

Personally, the move to bib pants was a big enough payoff. I doubt a onesie would give that much more.

No, thanks. I’ll stick to pants & bibs and having the option to wear different color combinations of jackets & pants/bibs. But I am a fan of the Airblaster Ninja Suit.

I bought a onesie base layer last year but never wore it. I had a little bit of outside work to do this week so I gave it a whirl under my normal work clothes. It was great, nice and toasty.

Then I needed a crap. Basically had to strip naked in my clients tiny downstairs toilet. I think they thought I'd fallen in. Or something worse with all the grunting and groaning that must have been going on.

It's a no from me.

Yeah, but if you get deep powder. Like 2 feet or more?
They are the best things in the whole world.

First time I ever tried a onsie, was @ whistler 2 years ago.
On day 4 of the season.
Moto went the first 3 days in a row & each day I talked to him when he got back.
It was killing, it sounded sofa king good.
I couldn't take it anymore.

They opened a new area that hadn't been open yet that season.
It was fucking nuts, too much snow.
I always thought people were retarded when they said too much so
Pfft how could there be such a thing?

Well, when came to a stop in a slow section of an untouched area.
I unstrapped & stepped into the abyss
I couldn't touch the bottom, it was over my head deep.
You have no idea how hard it is to get back on your board & moving again.
Just stop & actually think about that for a second or two

I had my D+ and as rad as I think that board is, it really isn't a true powder board.
Maybe if I had a standard but I hadn't bought it yet.

I ended up getting snowed in. I needed a better board for day 2.
I found a birdman 170 on craigslist & post it up in a lib-tech group I'm in.
And sure as shit, someone messaged me & told me to grab it Forum.
Of course part of the deal was I got to ride it haha.

Day 2 much better

Anywho......
The onsie was absolutely mind blowing,
For 2 days of the most snow I'm sure I'll ever see in my life.
NOT 1 SINGLE SNOWFLAKE EVER TOUCHED MY SKIN.
Except maybe my face.

I was flopping around, trying inverted shit, never came close to landing anything.
Still, not a single flake of snow touched me.
I woulda been soaked wearing any sort of jacket & pants

When there's no new snow though, they do look kinda gay bwa ha ha ha
