One of my most tried and true, must-have pieces of winter gear ever! And fall and spring too I might add. THe design of the Ninja Suit is really dialed. The hood is key, easy on, easy off, stretchy and fits perfectly, great for on-th-fly temp regulation. One piece design is awesome, seals out cold air or snow 100x better than separates (top + bottom), 4-way stretch material is unrestrictive and comfy. How to go to the bathroom, #2 for guys and both for ladies? Its so easy. I'm pretty sure its faster than separates, no untucking, re-tucking. Just unzip the waist / hip zip and sit or squat!! Anyway, a Ninja Suit is a MUST HAVE, and the MERINO version is 110% awesome!!

I'm 5'7" 175 and wear a medium. It fits well. I'd say they run 1/2 size large, at least if you want it snug. But I recommend having a little room in it, as you'll want to wear your Ninja Suit solo to your apres activity of choice.

Layering: Normal winter day, I wear mine with a thin merino T and boxer briefs underneath. That is enough heat for me 99% of the time, but its generally no colder than 20F where I live. Also, with the under layers, I don't have to wash the Ninja Suit that way for a loooong time.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: Runs large

The Ninja Suit is the best long underwear I've ever had. Period. If you're a bit hesitant on the one piece, don't be! Its super easy to get a Ninja Suit on and off, easy to ventilate, easy to go #1 and #2 out of! The Ninja Suit has been on the market for 10 years, and I can tell you they have it dialed. There are a lot of copycats on the market now, so beware, I've seen some pretty ill fitting ones. These do run a little large compared to most outdoor companies sizing, so you may want to size down from what you normally wear if you want it to fit more snugly. I'm 5'8" 175 and I wear a Medium which fits me great. Not baggy, but not overly tight. The fabric is 4 way stretch, so pretty forgiving wrt sizing, and I don't want mine too tight because i wear it to and from the mountain, on the couch... always and anywhere.... sometimes to the grocery store...

I do think this is the best long underwear available. This is after using the Ninja Suit extensively for the last 6+ years. Its the most complete protection, super versatile, and you don't have to give up any of the convenience that you might think you would for a one piece thanks to the waist zip (doesn't come apart, just opens up completely to answer the call of the wild). The Merino Wool Ninja Suit is the absolute cream of the crop, so go for that if you have the funds. Another note, this does run a bit large, and its 4-way stretch fabric, so I recommend sizing down a full size if you want it snug. I'm 5'8 170, and I wear a Medium which fits me well without being too tight.

I own this jacket in the Inca Gold, aka mustard. Great fit, especially for my long arms. Long in the body too. Love the simple style and fit. The amount of insulation is perfect for me, Its not too much, but definitely significantly warmer than a shell. I notice the Inca gold color is made from the Airblaster Baby Twill, which I really like. It has a little texture, not shiny, and good waterproofing. I think this jacket is a great price for what you get, especially from Airblaster. Back the Airpill and what Airblaster stands for->have fun with your friends snowboarding.

Have this jacket. Love it. Just the right amount of insulation. Fit is perfect-long and slim. This is in Airblaster's Freedom Series, so it doesn't have all the features of their higher end jacket, but it's not expensive either. What I like most is the outer fabric, which is soft and moves well and sheds water very well compared to any other 10000mm waterproof-rated jacket I've had. The rib knit cuffs are awesome and not meant to be worn under your gloves but over them-Airblaster does make other jackets with under-style hand panties... But I've got a NINJA SUIT, which keeps my hands and wrists sealed up. Anyway, love this jacket and recommend it. Fit is slightly large/long compared to other companies fits. Great Jacket, fair price, from a real snowboard company owned by snowboarders.

I wear this anytime I need long underwear. I don't even touch "separates" anymore. The waist zip design makes going to the bathroom just as convenient as two pieces, but the one-piece design of the Ninja Suit is superior in every way. I own an older synthetic version of the Ninja Suit, but the Merino is definitely the go-to unit. Merino rules. I'm 5'8" 175lbs and a Medium is the right size for me. I could probably wear a small, but it would be pretty tight.

This thing is amazing. One piece is the way to go!! Definitely the best protection from cold air and snow. The hood is amazing! I generate a lot of heat quickly when I start exerting, and I cool down just as fast when I stop exerting - the hood design is key -- easy up and down at any time to help me regulate temperature and stay comfy. The Merino wicks great, doesn't smell ever, and has a wide comfort range. The rear poo poo zip is super easy to use. I wear this thing camping, riding, split-boarding, snowshoeing, as pajamas, sleeping bag liner, under a drysuit while whitewater rafting in cold weather, and I'm sure I forgot some other uses. The Ninja Suit has definitely worked its way into my top 5 pieces of gear ever. It took forever for me to convince my Dad to try one (he runs hot too), but once he did (on our Grand Canyon trip) he was hooked 100%. Didn't take it off for 5 days straight. I could go on... but anyway, Ninjas rule!
