When weather conditions in the mountains are like winter in Banff, pull on the Outdoor Research Banff Bodysuit to ski, climb, or camp.

I'm looking for the bodysuit in a size Medium (6-8), tall (32-34 inseam)...will settle for a (30 inseam). But I can't seem to locate anything other than an XL. Please advise.
We only have these in the XL right now and I don't see any more coming in, in the near future. You could probably check with O.R directly and see if they could help you locate one.

smart for cold or windy weather
The bodysuit is a smart design for the right application. It is very simply a mid to heavyweight bottom and top in one. Plain and simple. If you don't want the bulky overlap of layers at your waist and you can deal with nature's call with a rainbow zipper this suite is smart. It is more efficient at keeping you warm as you will not loose as much heat when your layers open up during movement. Overall the suite is much more comfortable when compared with two layers but you do loose a little versatility as you cannot pick differing layers from bottom to top. The suite should either be looked at as a one peace aerobic suite or as a good base layer under shells either soft or hard. I am pretty warm blooded and I can use this suite under soft shell pants and a hard shell jacket and be very comfortable 20-50 degrees with various vents open or closed. If the temperature drops to below 20 I need an additional layer, fleece jacked or primaloft under the hard shell. The body suite is a great piece to build upon, fantastic to sleep in a bag in, great around camp.
Love this suit
Would head into the cold without this piece of gear. Comfortable, breathable and packs more warmth that imaginable for its weight. Very well designed.

The Outdoor Research Banff Bodysuit for Women, says it for Banff weather, I've been in Banff when it was 30 below skiing ....thats not what this suit is for, right? This suit would not keep you warm just by itself. I was wondering how thick it is if it is extremely cold can a ski jacket been worn over or would it be too bulky? Or is this suit better for BC mountains?

I am looking for ski pants or bib pants for size 18 I weigh 197 and have hips and butt. I am 5'7 and am not having much success. Big girls ski too. Help me.
I usually end up buying mens' pants that have a more relaxed fit, like the helly hansen agenda pant to work with the "junk in the trunk". And I have a friend who likes the Sessions brand mens' pants. I understand not all women like the baggy look, so to that end, I have found some luck with the north face and columbia women's line running a bit roomier than other brands. I had some TNF women's freedom pants that worked out pretty well, might look into those? Good luck, I know how you feel!!!
