I don't wear fartbags for the same reason I don't golf; i'm still sexually active.

you are blessed & lucky

I can't .... so it ain't gonna happen .... so relax (for any number or reasons), but if I could have made it to the ESA gathering, I would have been tempted to show up in my old red "fart bag" ..... straining at the zipper!

Funny, I weigh less but I couldn't get into it last year. It was great for running the snowblower.

I can still make a fashion statement in my Nomex flight suit though!

Now the fashionable ski wear looks more like hip-hop than high fashion. With all the high tech fabrics that are available today it's sad to see most of the folks on the mountain decked out in flabby/baggy browns and greys. Suzie Chapstick - where are you when we need you?
Hear hear!!
well said. Many of the folks here are the ones that drive Rossingnoll to continually pump out drab crap like that grey metal looking abomination they ship every 6 years or so, with their Elitist mentalities of "This just isn't done, any more, Buffy! Now, fetch the Beamer, shan't you?"
The fact is, the kids today who are asked in private what they are first drawn to in ski stores are still the bright colors- and yes, the neons are back with the young kids today as they were in the 70's (Hexcel, Hart, etc.). By the 80's they were old and were being done poorly by so many companies, they then stood for Gaper.

It's not hte colors themselves people, but what is done with them!
You can look like a clown or like a work of art. Nothing is bad because of what is in it, buit how it is put together.
Just as in cooking gourmet dishes- Presentation is more than Half...

God, I LOVE ski snobs! You're just like a skier knocking someone for riding a snowboard. Oh, wait, you're always pissed when someone does that. Hypocrite?
