How well this item performed in its intended use, and beyond.
Just received this a short while ago along with the Ghost Long sleeping bag. This one-piece down suit is extremely warm. After just putting it on I was very very warm. Hot.
Fit: I'm 5'11" and weigh probably back into the mid-to upper 190's. I've got the Size Large on in the photo. Fits nicely with room for appropriate layers underneath. Arms and leg inseam length are perfect. The inseam of the leg ends just atop of my Salomon beats.
Quality manufacturing all around. Don't plan on doing any high mountain climbing or alpinism but will be doing mountain hut-to-hut hiking and East Coast winter camping. Won't be taking this to Europe for the hiking though. I will take along my Absolute Zero parka for that if the weather requires it, otherwise it'll be my Nilas jacket.
Would be nice if there were handwarmer pockets outside of the alpine pockets. Even better yet, bringing back the Absolute Zero pants, but my guess is that for climbing mountains like Everest the the one piece outfit is superior to the parka and salopettes option.
Overall a great item and can't wait to put it to use on a winter camping trip.
I would recommend this product.
