One piece ski suits are back with a bang!
All-in-one snow suits have made a comeback over the last few years and there’s no denying that seeing a onesie on the slopes always makes you smile. Whether it’s a chicken costume, a vintage high waisted 80s number or an eye-watering vision in neon, they are a LOT of fun. Why should adults be denied babygrows anyway? They’re so damn comfy! Over at Oosc (Original Old School Ski Company) their mission is to bring fun and colour back to the mountains. The creators wanted to bring vibrant, technical and sustainable garments to the masses. And the result? A hugely popular brand with fantastic patterned pieces selling like hotcakes. Ski Club's Sophie took the Scandi Slayer to the Alps to put it through its paces.
There’s no denying that a skier donning a onesie is a sight to behold. Stepping out in my new Scandi Slayer suit I felt snug, secure and ready for anything the pistes could throw at me. But would it be warm enough? The temperature I faced in Alpe d’Huez was -6 but it felt like -25 with wind chill so I really tested the warmth. The advantage with a one piece is that you keep the heat contained inside the suit and reduce the chance of snow or ice finding its way up your back. The suit kept me warm, but not hot, so I would suggest serious layering in mid-winter and advise that the suits are most suited to Easter skiing.
