I have put this one-z through the ringer this season, not because I don't have PLENTY of other outer wear to test/use, I seem to use this exclusively lately. I have been using this for everything except these spring days. It works great as strictly a hardshell, just wear the stoic merino one-z long johns underneath for high 20's and layer for cold. It is bombproof, having brushed a few trees this year the face fabric thread has yet to pull. There is no mesh lining in the arm pit or leg vents, this is strictly a shell. I snowboard in it and my boots fit the leg openings and gaiters great. I ride with the boot cuff against the binding high back, and no wear has been noticed. The lower half, from about the waist, is actually a heavier face fabric. Hood fits over a helmet great, but also closes up nicely to form a face barrier. Pockets are great, I have come to like the thigh/knee pockets, they are really handy to quickly place gloves, skins, snow study equipment, etc into them when needed. I am 6'1" and 215lbs and have an XL. It does seem a little long/large when first put on but the extra freedom to move is nice, plus its great for layering!
Staying extremely warm and dry on an Alta storm day.
The suit is almost as awesome as the dude.

WOW!! I'm just shorter than 6'4" 200 lbs, I bought this suit in the Large and it fits perfectly. Im glad I didnt get the XL as I like the slimmer fit of the L. The back may get very slightly tight when in a seated position ( while buckling snowboard bindings ) but other than that the suit has PLENTY of room. Not too baggy and not too tight, simply perfect. This suit is guaranteed to keep you dry. I have experienced heavy snow, deep back country powder, rain, ice, and all the other weather the Northwest has thrown at me and have not gotten ANY moisture inside the suit. The suit is so durable that I have had scratches on my skin, underneath my suit, from hitting branches, and the suit has not had any sign of damage. I will buy another one of these suits if this one should ever wear out. This is my first Norrona product, and now feel hesitant to purchase anything else. Oustanding quality. Bravo.

This onezie is amazing. I have one in a Medium in red with green zippers, and it is like nothing else I've ever worn.
It is impenetrable for storm skiing. If you're after free refills, it will never let you down. Ever. Layering is key but this suit will adapt t anything, I have had it in subzero temps with a full highpile fleece suit underneath, and I've skinned in it in much warmer temps with no real complaints. The beauty is that while skinning, I just wear a baseayer underneath and unzip everything and it almost feels like you're skinning naked,but when you get to the top- zip, zip, zip- competely sealed in.
As far as pow goes, this is as good as it gets. Light, no restriction of movement, easy heat dumping, lots of pockets and the gaiters and hood all fit and work flawlessly. You will not feel a breze nor will you get any pow inside it, ever.
The only thing I'm not stoked on is the fit. The crotch is almst to my knees, and everything else I've ever gotten from Norrona was a ar more athletic fit. I hear the new ones are better tough, so that's cool.
Overall an amazing suit that for better or worse gets a ton of attention so be pepared for that as well. I'd give it a 9.7/10, with the only complaint being the "droopy ass" look.
hiya!! when will you be getting more mediums in the caviar colourway? also, will you be getting the nabbi colour again?? thanks :)
Hop on live chat and they should be able to look that info up.
Do the legs have full length zippers, i wear full size bulky knee braces and some times they need a mid day ajustment. just need know if i could get to them without taking the top off. also has anyone done any backcountry climbing/skinning in this suit need to know hot it gets on an accent
Hi there, yes the legs have full length (to the upper thigh) dual direction side zippers and there is plenty of room inside for leg braces. The dual side zippers are part of the ventilation design, meaning the zipper at the top of the thigh can be zipped down to vent. This would be ideal for you to adjust knee braces, etc. As far as breathing, its all relative. In my experience one-piece suits are generally warmer but able to dump heat quicker. There are large under arm vents and the side leg vents so plenty of options to dump heat. Keep in mind, no mesh lining on the vents...
My best friend has this in multi-colour, and I have to say, it is AWESOME!! Super lightweight, roomy, and looks great!! Durable, breathable, and keeps you dry. Lots of room for layering, or toss a vest on top for outdoor lunches. Can't be beat for backcountry powder.
I ended up getting a small, im 5'10" 170 lbs 41inch chest, i first tried the medium and it was WAY to tall, they must size these thing for giant viking type people. The small is perfect i can fit all the layers i need under and is not loose.
I often find when wearing one piece clothing (wetsuits, coveralls and overalls) that when get the right length arms and legs the torso is to short when sitting or crouching, auto-wedgie, this suit doesn't do that. Fit feels nice and athletic, not to roomy but just right, the legs fit a bit looser than the top half which i like
This thing is constructed beautifully, the best, i found no blemishes or mistakes, it is the highest tech piece of gear i own. You could hang it on the wall and call it art. The welded and taped seams look awesome.
The aramid cuffs are heavy duty and kind of point less for me on my snowboard, however if you splitboard these would definitely be effective.
The Legs/Seat fabris is a thicker stretch nylon and the top half feels like normal lightweight stretch Pro-shell. The fabric stretch just barely gives it is sweet and makes for unlimited freedom of movement.
The hood and collar are pretty big. the collar covers my chin and has soft fleece over the zipper, nice on the chairlift in stormy weather. The hood fits over the helmet but limits side to side motion, again not so hot on snowboard but would be cool for skier. Hood has nice adjustments and can be made to fit really tight on your head.
Chest pockets are convenient. the leg pockets are in a funny spot; i put spare gloves in each and the kind of acted like knee pads. the pit zips are nice and long. the arm zip was perfect for magnetic passes.
The wrist gaiters and very smooth and comfortable, the seams an thumb hole are flat welded very stretchy . The leg gaiters are good solid fabric. with nice boot grips, they weren't real tight on my Ride RFL boots but the boots are pretty slim, the would fit nice over heavy duty ski boots
The Nabbi model makes you stick out like a sore thumb on the mountain, great for not loosing your buddies... well they dont loose you.
Im an average snowboarder, not so good in the park but i can ride powder and steeps no problem.
I only got to use this once last year. I was at Alyeska ski resort, near anchorage, for a week durring a huge storm. The Weather was crazy, they probably got 60-70 inches of snow while i was there and a few days it was raining at the base and snowing up top, high winds and few days low visibility. Basically really good conditions for testing a bombproof suit. This is my favorite weather to ride in, sunny days are pretty but the storms just amp me up for some reason.
Thats exactly how i would describe it, bombproof, i never got a bit of snow in the thing, i never got even slightly damp going from rain to snow to rain again. it wears a little warmer than a jacket/pant shell, i found i was just wearing base layers even at night.
It seems very durable, i was rubbing through tight trees and even had one spot where i had to shimmy down a small cliff through tree braches, this thing looked brand new at the end of the week.
Un expected side effect
Like i said earlier i bought the Nabbi color one. i expected to stick out a bit, its pretty flashy, not neons 80s bright but still very solid eye catching colors. DID NOT expect the reaction i got. Every person we ran into commented on it "that is the coolest onesie I've ever seen". My girlffriend spent most of the time in the lodge and she heard people talking about me all day; "have you seen the guy ing the onesie?" It actually got annoying after a while. "thanks man, yes i know its cool, i bought it on the internet, really expensive, must have come out of my mouth a hundred times in a few days. I actually saw another guy up there with one, his was solid blue, i dont think he got the same attention though. I kind of wish i went with the green model just to not be so noticed. However you can be seen and my friends/gf can pick me out on the hill no problem. Might not be so out of place at bigger resorts in the rockies.
Overall if you want to be the most comfortable person on the mountain or want the best of the best kit this is it.
For the 2012 Norrona collection, is backcountry going to buy xs or xxs in the Lofoten Gore-Tex One-Piece? If so-GREAT! :D
Contact a BC rep through the chat in the top right, and they'll be able to check for you. Marmot makes a similar setup, wherein their Alpinist Jacket and Pants zip together to form a one-piece, and you can special order with them.
Write your question here...okay bit stuck i am looking to buy this suit in an xl but i am 6.6 ft just wondering whether it will fit me ?? cheers
it would as it is pretty long.
this rig looks awesome ... just the thing to stay warm and dry.
just wondering what the liner is. does it have much padding? Internal pockets?
Can anyone post some pics and/or comments about this.
No liner or padding - it's a shell only. It's designed to let you layer whatever you want - base layers, puffies, clown costumes - underneath for varying conditions. No internal pockets either, except any you may have on other layers.
not quite true actually;. there is one internal media pocket that is just inside the left zipper up near the chest.
I love this suit. I was a bit hesitant to drop the money on this but i'm very glad i did. i was initially only planning to use it for riding on storm days but found myself enjoying being all wrapped up in my invincibility suit. however for its intended purpose, storm/powder days, there is nothing that beats this suit.
sizing: i'm 6'2, 6'3 on a good day and about 165-170 lbs. The large fits me great. Plenty of play to move around in but not so much that I'm swimming in the suit.
Oh and the thumb gaiters are a great touch.
is the seat of this loose enough for snowboarding?
the size runs quite baggy. very true to size. there is plenty of room for layers. I'm 6'2" 180lbs, long and thin got the XL for length but could have easily fit into the large. amazing suit!
The fit on this is definitely generous enough to accommodate snowboarders. I've actually seen more snowboarders use it than skiers. I think it looks best on snowboarders in my completely unqualified stylistic view.
I just got my Nabbi size S one piece suit. It is beautiful! The colors pop, it fits great (XS might have been slightly better fit but as you don't carry it, I will live with the S). I can't wait to try it out on the snow. Super light weight and I can feel that it breathes well. Love the gaiters for the hands to keep the snow out. I just really love everything about this suit! Great for a girl!
My girl loves this!
She totally loves the texture of the suit.
Despite the exorbitant price tag,this remains one of the best one piece suits that money can buy. Great quality and excellent craftsmanship goes into making this a great product with many years of usage.
