Thinking of investing in a onesie one piece snowboard or ski suit? Not sure if you would be better off with a separate pair of trousers and a jacket? Checkout some opinions on the pros and cons of the best option to go for. What is the advantage of a onesie all in one snowboard or ski suit versus two pieces?
Back in the 1980's one piece ski suits were very popular then they became seriously uncool and no one under the age of 55 wore one up until just a few years ago. You could (and still can) find a few old timers wearing the same one piece suit they bought back in 1985 - just look for the purple, pink and green colours! Now everything has changed. Maybe it was because onesies became so unfashionable and so heavily associated with old skool skiers that rebels decided to wear them and they became seriously cool once again, on the grounds that "I do not care what anyone else thinks". The revival started with hard core snowboarders and then free skiers joined in. Now a growing number of both skiers and snowboarders are buying one piece suits again. The new suits look and feel nothing like the old school ski suits from the 1980's. They are big, loose fitting and come with a completely different image and user profile! It is cool to be uncool but there are some serious practical benefits too. The technology has come on massively since the 1980s.
