one piece base layer
« on: January 20, 2004, 07:58:44 am »
looking for a one piece base layer to increase comfort on an extended outdoor trip in the winter. i recall a fairly recent review on one of this in either 'climbing' or 'rock and ice', but was unable to find it. looking to the crowd here to provide insight and experiences on this.

I have a Marmot Action Suit I wear almost exclusively.  Works great and feels much warmer than 2-piece equivilants.  I recently heard Wild Things made a nice one.  EMS might have the most inexpensive.  Check Ragged Mt too.

Patagonia used to make a one-piece mid-weight capilene suit, which fit the bill perfectly.  On cold days I wear it under a powerstretch farmer john.  I'll keep my eyes open for you...

You might want to look at the Quadratic suit from Outdoor Research.  Very stretchy, with a through the crotch zipper that matches the Wild Things Colorado suit and the Arcteryx salopettes.
