This is the best down suit you can buy for your money. It's warm and does its job in the coldest of weather. Keeps you warm and dry, very comfortable, it's like wearing a nice down sleeping bag.
It's great for any winter activity. It's best for winter camping and long treks or walks on cold days. I wear the suit all the time around the house or outside, it's that comfortable. I have gotten many compliments on the suit. I would recomend this suit to anyone whos is always cold or wants to be comfortable during the winter.
- Great warmth
- Easy to move around in
- Easy in and out
- Great for blocking wind

I would recomend this suit to anyone who is always cold or wants to be comfortable during the winter. If you buy your proper size it will fit great i love my suit it's not loose or super tight it fits just nice and snug , i have eaven fell asleep in the suit, its just like wearing a sleeping bag, overall fit is great. You can adjust the hood with two sinche cords and you also adjust the waist with two velcro tabs and the suspenders in the suit can also be adjusted i love it.
This suit is water proof it holds up great. I have played in the snow and even layed down in the snow and it kept me dry and the suit stayed dry. The suit is great when your doing activities i find it vents pretty well. This suit keeps you very warm wether your doing physical activities or just siting around, it's great for any activity. You can put layers on underneath the suit like undergarments and fleece pants and top if you get cold easily.
Its abrasion handling is great. This suit works just as expected and more. The construction and durability or the suit is great cause I have been ice fishing, winter camping, snow shoeing, skiing, skating sliding, walks and winter sports. I would recomend this down suit to anyone who is very active outside during the winter and fall and even spring. I just can't say enough good things about this suit.
A wonderful one-piece suit for extreme conditions.
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.
Amazing workmanship and fill power. The Dryloft fabric…

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.
