        Overall

        I fully plan on getting myself another Ninja Suit from Avalaan. Their quality is on-par with most other outerwear manufacturers. Once again, if you're looking for gear you could summit everest in, this isn't it.

        However, I don't think I've ever worn outerwear that looked quite as good.



        Performance

        The pants did a good job of keeping the wind out, my ass dry and my balls not too sweaty. Same with the jacket though, there is a light layer of insulation so if you're doing summer skiing you're going to get hot. Black doesn't help this much either.

        The venting is good though, letting plenty of air through to your legs to keep cool on even the hottest days.

        Design

        The sag is unreal. I'm going to keep talking about this, because I can't stress enough how well these pants sag. Be careful with your sizing though--remember I'm talking about size large and I'm a big guy. The pants just hang exactly where you want them, and have a great cut to them. I'll bet smaller sizes would have a good look if you were going for a more fitted thing.

        The pocket assortment is great. There's a big cargo pocket that closes with zipper and velcro for big stuff, and a compartmentalized cargo pocket for other odds and ends. Two nice deep pockets in a normal place for pants and pockets on the back. As well, when you're out of your ski gear and you don't want to walk on the sagging pants, there's drawstrings you can pull shut to hold the pants off the groud. Make sure to do this every time though, as if you walk on the drawstring you can break it and then you're in trouble.

        Fit

        B-A-G-G-Y. Avalaan takes the cake for the baggiest outerwear I have ever put on my body. I ordered a size large and it was MASSIVE. Now, some companies that make baggy clothing it has an extremely sloppy look. There's no thought put into how the garmet will hang with all that extra sag, and Avalaan has done an impeccable job with this. Its baggy but not goofy looking. It sags in all the right places. The pants are unreal. I'm 6'1" and wear a 28.5 ski boot. The pants easily covered my entire boot with room to spare. But it DOES NOT look rediculous. It looks sick.

        Durability

        My pair got ripped. I don't believe it was a fault of design, more so that I had my pants hanging so low I couldn't spread my legs without putting stress on the crotch. Yes I was being stupid, but I was so stoked on the sag you see.

        Regardless, I blew open the seam in my crotch and ripped the pants from knee to knee. So perhaps there is a sag limit you've got to be careful of.
