Old Farts in Fart Bags - Page 2post #31 of 761/29/09 at 6:18pmpost #32 of 761/30/09 at 8:55amQuote:Anybody else noticed that older skiers tend to ski in one piece suits?post #33 of 762/2/09 at 1:59pmQuote:
Anybody else notice that skiers of any age who are more concerned about how their gear looks than how it performs tend to look and ski like crap?
I can't imagine what kind of drooling, snot-nosed slack-jawed mouth breather cares what anybody else's gear looks like.post #34 of 762/2/09 at 2:25pm
The answer is rather easy for both the kid and the old fart. Its called body build.
As you age your chest slides to your ars due to the effects of years of gravity and caloric intake. You have a choice. Suspenders or a fart bag, take you pick cuz nothing is going to stay up right or tucked in.
When young you have not developed adult bulk and have no ars so there is nothing as far as pants that will stay up/ Lord knows you cannot wear a fart bag or suspenders for fear of looking like part of the establishment you still resist.post #35 of 762/3/09 at 10:23ampost #36 of 762/3/09 at 11:14am
I believe that suit says "SURVIVAL" across the pink belt patch on the back no? A good family friend used to ski in the same suit, I thought it was amazing in the early 90's and wanted one badly, I think it was made by Nevica or something. Also you get bonus points for the Dynamic (VR27 is it?) and Sally 957 bindings, and super extra bonus points for Gordini goggles with no hat on a day when it's snowing.post #37 of 762/6/09 at 7:31amThread Starterpost #38 of 762/6/09 at 8:03am
I just bought my gf a grey/black Roxy Eden one piece and she loves it- She gets a ton of compliments on it and it is wicked cute on her. Warm as hell, fully taped seams, tons of features and no drafts, which is very important on days as cold as yesterday where it was well below zero at the summit and WINDY! We had a couple people ask who makes it, how much it was and where to get one. I would never wear a onezie, but for a girl I think they're great!post #39 of 762/6/09 at 8:49am
LOL ya Gramboh you hit it all right on the head.
You did miss my Dashstein boots (V4 foamed) this is why I picked the name old boot, I was still skiing in these boots until this year (they had been reblown twice)
The suit came with a whistle Salina just reminded me (was attached in the pocket with a string) You have great powers of observation.
I don't know if I would actually wear it still...correction do to my present expanded state I don't know if I could still wear it.post #40 of 762/6/09 at 11:49pmThread Starterpost #41 of 762/14/09 at 2:28pm
My ski suit got relegated to the back cupboard when I noticed it was only 'middle aged plump woman', aka old fart bags, wearing them, and I did not want to be one of them. But I confess though that I could not bring myself to throw it out. It was a shell suit so very versatile. And it was great when skiing the NZ club fields, where you have to wear a tow belt with a 'nutcacker' to ride the lifts. I bought a rock climbing harness and attach my nutcracker to that. If our jacket is too long it can get in the way of getting your nutcracker on and off the belt.
In this photo I think I an more embarrassed about the headband than the suit!!!!post #42 of 762/24/09 at 6:10pm
I love my fart bag! When it's 10 below and dumping, there's no better way to stay toasty and dry.
And yeah, I've seen more of them on the slopes (on people of all ages) this season than I have in years. They're not coming back in style, they are back in style.
You'd best start searching the consignment shops now, if you want to be the best dressed dude lined up for the first chair next season.post #43 of 762/24/09 at 6:26pmpost #44 of 762/24/09 at 6:40pmpost #45 of 762/25/09 at 7:13pm
honestly there is a such thing as good looking one piece, or is it someone good looking in a one piece
shameless stolen from this great TRpost #46 of 763/27/09 at 6:06pm
AHAHAHAHAHAHAH this is awesome. mainly because it's exactly what i see on the mountain!!! why must all onesie wearers also sport neon colors? guess it's because this was a product of the 80s....post #47 of 763/28/09 at 11:01am
I think the above picture just radiates good looks and a comfort with all that is around the individual. Obviously the person who can get away with wearing a suit like this, is one that has Superior skiing abilities and does not worry in anyway of those looking at him. What is first seen is a bright color then the eyes are drawn quickly away from the display of plumage and to the individuals abilities , so much that the bright colors of the suit are not even noticed anymore.
It is my humble opinion that most public on the hill could not carry off the wearing of this suit in such a manor and would just draw the eyes of their fellow skiers to notice how poor their skiing abilities and basic performance are.
Most people would shutter at the thought of wearing something like this, not because of the brightness of the suit but because of their own fear of being identified by the public at large and opening them selves up for ridicule of the skiing abilities of this individual.
BTW did you say you wouldn't wear something this bright?post #48 of 7611/12/10 at 11:21amQuote:
There's no one-piece suit in these pictures. Sadly, since that would look SO much nicer. That's a short red ski jacket and matching salopettes. That's obvious, especially in the picture I keep in the quote above!post #49 of 7611/12/10 at 11:36ampost #50 of 7611/12/10 at 12:01pmpost #51 of 7611/12/10 at 12:16pmpost #52 of 7611/12/10 at 12:19pmpost #53 of 7611/12/10 at 3:13pmpost #54 of 7611/12/10 at 3:47pm
Fart bags are the bomb! I've got three more! When you are skinny, you need the leg heat to rise! The race suit is more a joke here. Have fun Fart Baggers!post #55 of 7611/12/10 at 3:51pm
I just have to get one of those! Looks like it would go well with my Gene Simons Kiss Platform Boots!Quote:
OK, I'm frickin' board! But I do really want one. I'll check the used stores in five years.post #56 of 7611/13/10 at 3:52am
Saves money (bought on sale 'cause it wasn't cool anymore), warm, doesn't let snow get up your back if you fall. Old folks are more into saving money than looking cool and probably stopped falling and getting snow up their backs a long time ago, so I'll got with the frugality money and warmth.post #57 of 7611/13/10 at 2:39pmpost #58 of 7611/13/10 at 8:26pmpost #59 of 7611/15/10 at 9:53am

OMG I have the same suit. Different colors. For a woman even, but for a flat one, I've got lot of complements on it. It's iridescent.
