There’s No Suit Like a Snowsuit: 8 Best Snowsuits for Conquering the Cold

From Everest-worthy expeditioners to those who’ve just (barely) graduated from the bunny slope, you can’t really get out and enjoy winter’s snowy abundance if you’re too cold. There are lots of ways to keep warm, from down jackets to long johns, but one of the best ways we know to keep all that body heat…well…in your body, is to don a head-to-toe (or at least neck-to-ankle) snowsuit. 

Before you start looking through your toddler pictures and home movies, don’t sweat it. Today’s snowsuits are designed by the coolest apparel brands from the ski world. They incorporate the very latest in fiber and fabric technology to ensure that every seam is sealed and every surface is waterproof. New insulation keeps the look sleek, with no Michelin Man silhouettes. And speaking of sweat, they also utilize the latest breathable membranes to keep you dry, even while you’re getting a backcountry workout. Great colors and patterns also ensure that you’ll be impressing the snow bunnies with your great personal style. 

One note of consumer caution: Because ski season coincides with January sale season at many retailers, if you see a suit you like in your size and favorite color, grab it before it’s gone. If you wait until the day before you head off on that mountain vacation, it may already be packed in somebody else’s suitcase.

Serious explorers will appreciate that the Absolute Zero Down Suit will keep them warm and comfortable even in extreme climates, but isn’t there a part of you that wants it just for those freezing, wind-chilled commutes? Okay, so maybe the oxygen-mask-compatible collar is a bit of overkill for us amateurs, but the welded, waterproof baffles will help prevent the 800-fill down from getting wet, the hood and hem adjustments are easy to handle—even when wearing gloves—and there’s a six-slider watertight rainbow rear zip for easy in and out.

Finally, if you like a head-to-toe coordinated look, but are worried that a full suit may trigger some sort of powder-induced claustrophobia, consider a matching jacket and pant combo. There are lots of two-piece options out there, but we particularly like this on-trend cordovan combo from the experts at Obermeyer. The upper shell, besides being waterproof, features engineered anatomical articulation and construction design elements and a powder skirt to keep the snow out from under. It also features a Recco Rescue Reflector, an avalanche rescue system. The snow pants also feature that engineered, ergonomic fit, as well as four-way stretch, waterproof, and breathable fabric that’s fully seam-sealed. A foam mesh lumbar support adds to your comfort and performance. Best of all, they’re insulated with PrimaLoft Black ECO material.
