2014 Gear Of The Year: Airblaster Merino Wool Ninja Suit

2014 Gear Of The Year

Just last winter, we headed out on what would be an all day snowshoeing excursion. We were under dressed, froze our butts off, and spent hours trying to regain feeling. Moral of the story, being cold sucks – especially if you’re out for a long period of time with no real way to warm up. This exact situation is something most people have experienced and if you’re like us you’ve vowed to never let it happen again.

Layers are the key to staying warm and merino wool is perfect for base layers. A good merino wool base layer will keep body heat in, while allowing sweat to wick away. The advantage of merino wool is that it’s antimicrobial, meaning it won’t retain odor or store all that sweat from a day full of adventures. One of the best base layers we’ve found that allow you to run around and pull off ninja-like moves is the Airblaster Merino Wool Ninja Suit.

The full-bodied Airblaster Merino Wool Ninja Suit is something you can wear for an entire weekend as a base layer or as a stand-alone piece. We’re picky about our base layers, but were so impressed with the Merino Wool Ninja Suit that it instantly became Gear Of The Year worthy. You can easily go #1 and #2 with the front fly and 350-degree waist zip. The best feature is that their hooded design will fit your head perfectly. The hooded design took the founders 9 years to perfect and when you put it on you will know why. It intricately fits your head, keeping an important part of your body very warm. The ninja suit provides a level of protection and versatility that is hard to come by in any other base layer. Not to mention it looks pretty freakin’ cool.

Price: $189.99
