If you want to stand out, get a one-piece suit that Cabelas sells for goose hunting that has a cameo pattern like cattails, so you blend in to the marsh.   I have seen them worn at Breckenridge.   They go with rear-entry boots, pencil skis and Mad Bomber hats.

I have an opportunity to pick up a one piece & am now questioning if I can make it work. I must admit my motivation as 'wow that looks warm & cozy' plus only one thing to back & looks like a lot of storage.....

My wife reminded me that I am old & no one has worn a uni suit since I last thought Scott & Glen looke awesome in them in the early 90's

This is mildly time sensative, so advise away!!

Here is the answer!

Yes, I do love fart bags!  Up to 46 of them now!   Have eight that are not in the videos.  When I get more I'll do another fashion show.

Jacques, today I found the store for you!  It's a thrift shop in Lincoln, NH.  They must have had 30 vintage one-pieces, priced $15-$30 each, all in pretty good condition.  I thought of you as I stood there looking through them.

If I was a rich man I'd get on a jet!  Then I'd get a huge closet too!   Maybe it is time for you to become a collector?   Who knows what they sell for in another 15 to 20 years.

 

Thanks for thinking of  "The onesie guy at Bachelor"   Made my day!   I have 8 more now.  When I get more, I'll do another fashion show!  :popcorn   Yes, I'm a Gaper Supreme!

What about Jati?   Vail is crawling with them.

post #135 of 145

Jati are cool for after-ski.  All the young ski racers in Colorado are wearing them.

You shall no longer be king of the onesie JACQUELINE. I will dethrone you w/ my super safety ski suit. You can be seen from the bar while on the Summit or look fast standing in line. Men will point, women will ask who is that and children will laugh. Coming to a resort near you.

No way!  Slider in a one piece.  I'm sure if it was 25 years ago, but in this day and age!  I can't wait to see it!  As one of the most excellent skiers on the Mt. you might destroy your reputation. :rotflmao:

post #143 of 145

I totally agree.  The only draw-back with the one-piece is going to the bathroom; going number one, no problem, number two, ugh !!  (yup, I'm a guy.)  And, oh yes, apre ski over-heating.  But you can take it down to the waste and tie the arms around you for a belt; unless, of course, your arms aren't long enough to get around your middle:D !

At least you won't have to worry about women hitting on you in the bar.
