Here are some vital features in a mono suit that you need to check out when you finally decide to go this route:
The best one-piece snowmobile suit is constructed with a breathable, waterproof and windproof fabric. It usually comes in two or three layers; an outer shell with lamination for some, an inner lining and insulation. Polyurethane, Gore-Tex, and Polyester are some common outer shell fabrics. When it comes to insulation, some have it separate while others have it built in the suit.
Zipper features to look out for include two-way zipping ability, Aquaguard zippers which are rated waterproof. Also, check that they are tough and durable like the YKK zippers.
A double-stitched seam denotes strength while a sealed seam denotes waterproof ability. Some suits will have only the critical seams sealed.
Boot and wrist gaiters
Gaiters will protect your feet from debris, snow, and rainwater while still insulating your feet and hands. They come with loops that pass under your boots for secure insulation.
Like bibs, pants, and jackets, the monosuit will have pockets at different locations; Again they will be designed differently depending on utility for instance hand pockets will be lined with warm fabric and the cell phone pocket will have a meshed lining to make it waterproof.
Some suits will have suspenders while others will not. An internal suspender holds the suit’s waist in place for it to fit well and comfortably.
Hoods can be fixed or detachable. Detachable hoods usually come with different closures including the snap, zipper or Velcro closure.
The collar takes care of your neck and most suits have it lined with fleece and an adjuster to keep you warm all through.
Pre-curved knees, seat and arms
A protection mechanism for your hands, seat, and arms from the impact as well as a comfort feature allowing free movement.
Best Snowmobile Suits (One Piece) 2020
Our review takes a look at snowmobile suits (one piece), that have changed the way of doing things during winter. Scroll through and see what makes them special.
1. Castle X Freedom Monosuit Shell Men’s Snowmobile Suit
The Multilayered Freedom snowmobile monosuit for men features a hybrid polyester and nylon 3M™ Thinsulate™ outer shell with a DWR (Durable Water Repellent) coating along with Ven-Tex® 2.0 lamination known for its exceptional windproof, waterproof and breathability properties. On the inside is the moisture-wicking Comfort-Flow™ polyester mesh lining. This combination guarantees you warmth, dryness and optimum comfort while you are out in deep snow.
Some strength and durability features on this suit include pre-curved knees and arms, padded with memory foam for added comfort and safety in these injury-prone areas. Again the knees, seat and instep panels have been reinforced to withstand wear and tear. The seat is further insulated to keep your comfort to the maximum.
For added strength and insulation, all seams are double-stitched and the critical ones sealed. Its collar lined with fleece comes with the secure shock cord adjuster that you can operate with your gloves on. Speaking of adjustability, the cuffs and waist are also adjustable but with Velcro and the suspender system located on the interior is also adjustable and detachable too. Pockets are a necessary addition and this one comes with plenty of them; a left sleeve pocket detailed with goggle wipe, zippered internal cap pocket, dual spandex storage pockets, and oversized hand pockets to accommodate gloves. All zippers including the two-way zipper at the front are waterproof.
Additional features include a D-ring to suspend your quick-access items, a removable hood, hand, and boot gaiters, as well as a 3M™ Scotchlite™ Reflector for visibility hence safety.
2. TOBE Outerwear Ludo Mono Suit
The Ludo Monosuit by TOBE is an amazing entry-level monosuit designed for all snow sports to beat all winter weather conditions making it the go-to option for beginners looking for a versatile piece. The three-layered suit comes with a tough all-nylon upper insulated with a waterproof rating of 20 000 mm, full wind protection, and optimal breathability. Its insulation is further enhanced with fully sealed seams and the tough and durable YKK Aquaguard zippers.
Its amazing comfort features are distinctly designed including ample ventilation thanks to the vent zips at the chest, laser cut wrist gaiters and leg gaiters hooked with metal to add to its strength and to keep out snow. In addition, this monosuit is set to give you some years of service thanks to the reinforcement received by the knees, leg cuff and inner cuff.
A great performer this is with numerous pockets including 5 pockets on its exterior, a goggle pocket on the inside, and a meshed waterproof pocket for your cell phone.
The only downturn as some may see it is that this monosuit doesn’t come with internal suspenders like most others. However, the manufacturer has replaced it with the three-layered lightweight construction making sure that there is no extra weight on your shoulders, therefore, no need for the suspenders.
3. Klim Lochsa Men’s One-Piece Snowmobile Suit
The biggest plus for the Lochsa men’s orange one-piece suit by Klim is its comfort features and a great fit for the aggressive snow rider. This 3-layered unit is designed with the mountaineering Grade 150D nylon shell and the highly breathable Gore-Tex fabric. It is one lightweight piece that will keep you going even in the toughest of trails. Together with an amazing ventilation mechanism featuring 8 intake and exhaust ports for maximum ventilation, you are well protected from burnouts.
Additional comfort features include a moisture reverse transfer barrier on the inner part of its seat to prevent moisture from being transferred back within the unit. Flexibility also features well in this Klim monosuit with the adjustable cuffs and waist.
The more injury-prone areas like the knees have been detailed with redefined knee pad coverage for improved protection while the hem and inner boot panel has been strengthened to keep it going for a while without yielding to the usual wear and tear. This hem is detailed with cuff hooks to keep it intact especially in deep snow.
Additional accessories include a detachable suspender, adjustable hood, the beautiful embroidered Klim Logo and durable YKK zippers.
4. TOBE Outerwear Novo Mono Suit V2
TOBE’s one-piece suit debuted and comes with bells and whistles you would expect to find in functional onesies. With long side YKK Aquaguard zippers extending right from the hips to the leg cuffs, another front side zip that extends from the neck down right to slightly below the waistline, an adjustable waist, and a removable hood, this piece is as flexible and as ventilated as you can imagine.
Featuring durable 2-layered Sympatex Cordura shell with 45,000mm rating with seams that are fully taped and reinforced, TOBE’s onesie is completely wind and waterproof yet still highly breathable. To make it durable, the seams are double-stitched and the wear and tear prone areas like the knees, leg and inner cuffs are reinforced with the tough Armortex Kevlar fabric. It is also quite durable, making it a good bet for snowmobilers.
It comes in an adults’ unisex size but will generally run a size larger. Other impressive protective features include an expandable collar, a chest vent zipper, as well as 6 zippered pockets on the exterior, goggles and cell phone pockets included. Shut out snow and harsh weather elements with the leg and wrist gaiters. On the downside, this piece comes with no insulation.
5. HMK Men’s Special One Piece Suit
The one aspect that makes this men’s snowmobile suit distinct is the XR-Gold level weatherproof technology which features waterproofing applied to the Cascade Ballistic™ fabric, maximum breathability with pores on the XR membrane 600 times larger than water vapor molecules to let out perspiration, Teflon® DWR Polymer treatment that lets beads of water to roll off the shell rather than soak in, fully taped seams and Aquaguard waterproof zippers.
As mentioned, it is constructed with the durable cascade ballistic fabric which is a good abrasion resistor lined with brushed mesh. It also features the abrasion-resistant fabric on its inseam panels and on its hem. For ventilation, the Special One Piece Suit features an underarm zipper.
A worthwhile addition to this piece is a fully articulated hood that is detachable for enhanced warmth in harsh weather.
6. Carhartt Men’s Arctic Quilt Lined Yukon Coverall X06
This water-repellent heavy-duty 1000D nylon onesie represents real toughness. With quilt lining and polyester insulation on the inside, it happens to be a top-quality men’s one-piece snowmobile suit designed for extremely cold conditions. Its main seams are triple stitched for extra strength.
To accord your knees and seat maximum protection, these areas are designed to accommodate padding. At the neck area is corduroy constructed top collar with snaps underneath in case you want to attach a hood. A pleated elbow gives your arms room to shift around and the split back detailed with a bi-swing also to allow free movement of the arm.
Other impressive features include multiple pockets; two upper chest pockets large enough to operate with gloves on, two hand pockets, two interior pockets, a sleeve pocket ideal for your pencils, two back pockets, one leg pocket and a hammer loop on each leg for storing your hammer and other tools. Pockets use zippers or Velcro to close so your items will not fall off especially when you bend.
The Carhartt Men’s Arctic Coverall is a great deal for the tools-guy in deep snow conditions. With the full-length two-way leg zippers integrated with wind flaps and rib-knit storm cuffs, this is one of the most protective pieces.
7. HAGOR Black IDF Coverall Insulated Snowsuit
Another piece for the sub-zero temperatures is this IDF coverall by HAGOR. It is designed with an outer shell lined with synthetic fur filled with hollow synthetic fabric and is rated water-repellent. The two-sided zipper at the front makes it easy to close and open from either end as well as half-length side zippers for ventilation. Again it is one of the very few coveralls with a fixed hood perhaps because of its orientation to extremely cold conditions. Overall it is quality built-in line with IDF Israeli Army standards and will withstand cold winter winds quite well.
Perhaps the only downside is that this piece is not waterproof. HAGOR has some fantastic women’s snowmobile suits one piece but this is one of their unisex monosuits.
8. Genma0 One-Piece Waterproof Snowsuit
Genma0’s one-piece snowsuit is made of tough and durable coated polyester fabric. It is incredibly warm and breathable thanks to a combination of polar fleece and Taslon fabric lining on the inside and comes with optimal breathability. It also features effective insulation with zippered closures making it water and windproof hence suitable for cold winter areas with temperatures below 20 degrees.
For fast and easy boot access, these snowsuit is designed with a leg gaiter with a zipper. It is also versatile thanks to the insulated adjustable and removable sleeve with Velcro closure. To clean it, hand wash it and hang it out in the open to dry. Please note that machine washing it may destroy its fabric. Secondly, this onesie may run a size smaller, therefore, get a size up or refer to the sizing chart provided by Genma0.
Snowmobile monosuits are definitely as great and comfortable as their two-piece counterparts. You just need to ensure that you get a good fit. Furthermore, they are pretty good at providing a completely blocked off environment so that your body temperature is regulated more effectively. These units are also cost-effective because you will only be buying one item. Trendy? By all means, they are. At least these days so there is really nothing you will be losing out on.
On the con though, snowmobile suits come with many varying features which sometimes make it difficult to make the right choice. The rule of thumb here is to know your sport and the main features like construction, then narrow down your search using the more specific features. Secondly, many manufacturers make unisex suits so just in case you need a snowmobile suit women’s design or the men’s snowmobile suit, it is a good idea to know the distinguishing features of course apart from color.
