The North Face
A wonderful one-piece suit for extreme conditions. Very well made, no cold or wet spots whatsoever, and fairly easy to move around in (considering what it was made for). Yes, the hood is large, and does restrict vision, but with three drawstrings it can be made to fit well, and I think the hood would accommodate an oxygen mask well. The crotch zipper is easy to deal with when nature calls, and the reflective lining adds to the warmth. The mitts in the sleeves are another good feature.
Fabric: Ripstop Dryloft
Fill: 700 fill down
Price Paid: $800
Amazing workmanship and fill power.
The Dryloft fabric works very well.
It has a very large hood that could interfere with the view.
The elastic in the water pockets are a little too tight.
It is really a great product.
