        Overall

        I love this suit. There are a couple flaws which I have listed, but all in all I am very happy with my purchase and would gladly buy from LD again.

        9/10!!!

        by the way, the picture is not of me. I will take one later when I have an actual camera :P

        Performance

        I've skied with this in warm weather (opening whistler weekend) and this past weekend (-15 degrees). This is good stuff. It is not too warm that you will overheat but it is warm enough that you don't have to layer a lot. In fact, in the -15 degree weather I was wearing long underwear and a microfleece pullover and I was perfectly fine in all the places the suit covered.

        The zipper, however, has a bit of a problem at times. At the bottom of the jacket it sometimes pulls apart but as long as you make sure it's all set and locked it should work.

        Design

        This is a great design. Love the magnetic pockets and the large zippered ones on the pants. The magnet for the hood for riding switch might seem gimmicky, but it actually works very well. The hood is also big enough to fit over my Giro G10, which is a relatively large helmet.

        I have one problem with it, though. On the left pantleg halfway down there is a large pocket with no apparent purpose. There is a magnet at the bottom of it that connects but it really does jack shit...I'm planning on adding some velcro to make it a pocket to throw a camera in or something when I'm standing around taking pictures or filming on a booter.

        Value

        Wouldn't pay any more for it, but I don't think it's worth less. You get what you pay for.

        Fit

        I am 5'8" and I got the XL size. It fits pretty big, not going to lie, but it's super comfortable and if you roll up your pants once they're fine. You need to be ok with the baggy look if you want to rock this suit, though.

        The jacket goes around mid-thigh without the drawstring. The pants are really large around the bottoms so you will need to roll up once when you walk, like I said. Overall, I am glad I didn't get XLT, but I'm perfectly happy with the size I got.

        Durability

        I have only skied with it for 4 days so I cannot comment on durability. The fabric seems to be good quality, though. Can't say anything bad so far.
