I have the lofoten in red w/ green zippers and it's amazing. Huge but amazing. I am 5'8" and about 160ish and the M is huge on me. I would consider selling only with the intentions of getting a different size or color. I'll never be without one again.
There seriously is not a better piece of pow riding storm gear than a hardshell onezie. It works when it's freezing, when it's warmer, nuking, raining, sleeting, whatever- zip it up and the weather is an afterthought, as well as my obsessive compulsive tucking-in of layers doesn't matter anymore. You're just evenly warm and comfy, and if you get hot, undo a zip and BAM! You're vented like crazy. I even use mine to tour as well- there are so many zips it allows you to vent but still maintain overall protection from wind and snow.
On cold days, I wear my high pile fleece top and pants under it and the chair could be swinging in the wind and I'm inside it oblivious as if I was sitting on my couch in fleece.
The only thing though is that everyone and their mother thinks you're wearing it just so they can comment on it. Everyone sees it, and so too you. Just be aware of the fact that you will never be able to duck a rope and get away with it ever again unless you get the black one, and you WILL get a million comments- some good and some totally dickish- no matter what, especially if it's a bright color.
Highly recommended though. If you can score one for cheap, do it. Actually, PM coming. I have a great hookup for you.
