The Full Review:
Can I just start by saying I don't take this thing off once winter hits. It's like a warm hug that keeps on giving from November till March. I have had a Ninja suit for years, so long I have recently had to retire my OG and spring for a new one. I have owned base layers before never a whole suit.
It comes in at a very reasonable price if you compare buying a set of Merino tops and bottoms and I bet they are not nearly as cozy and cool as a Ninja suit. All the versions, regardless of wool or synthetic come with "dump truck bottom" that allows for easy bathroom duties. The seven-panel hood is great for wearing under a beanie for extra "protect your neck" warmth. The suit stretches and moves with you during any activity you choose to do. One of the best parts...no snow down your pants.....EVER. Case closed.
Come find me at Mt. Hood and give me a high five in your new Ninja Suit.
The ninja suit is a one-stop-shop for all things warm.
-Think you are going to be cold on the mountain? Forget about it.
It's stylish -Think your friends will be sporting something cooler than a Ninja suit? Forget about it
Dump truck bottom -Think the only time you can use the bathroom is after a long day on the hill at home when you complete shed your suit? Forget about it.
Stink free Merino wool -Think you will be the smelly kid in class? Forget about it.
I have a love-hate relationship with the hood. I LOVE it when I need it. Hate it when I am not using it and its flapping in the wind.
The Bottom Line:
Once you start the ninja life you cannot return. Its a lifestyle and the ninja suit will never die. Buy one and love it.
