Positives

  • Solid Waterproofing
  • Poop Zip!
  • Snow never gets in

Negatives

  • Not Helmet Compatible
  • Limited Pockets

Summary

The Airblaster Beast Suit was a suit I enjoyed over 30 days last season and tested hard in all conditions. For a rider who uses a helmet, the hood was a letdown, but other than that, I felt it was a great suit to have on pow days and to poop in.

Fit

Pretty good fit for my specs. Being an XXL on top and an XL for pants, I was glad the XL Fit me. It’s a little snug up top, but the waist and pants are perfect. They only had an XL to send me for testing so I took what I could get. However, If I was buying this I’d go XXL.

Construction

Airblaster did the construction right. I felt the outer material sheds wet snow and water off very well.

Waterproofing/Breathability

I felt the waterproofing of 20k was fair, and it handled some wet snow very well. Breathability is always hard to gauge, but it didn’t seem bad for regulating heat.

Hood/Helmet Compatibility

Not helmet compatible, which is a deal breaker for those who wear their helmet and want protection from cold wind and snow on their faces.

Cuff/Glove Compatibility

A little tight but doable with putting the cuffs over the gloves.

Pockets

There are 3 outside pockets for the top and 3 for the pant area. Not much happening inside makes your pocket count feel a little limited.

Gaiters/Cuffs

The Cuffs and gaiters could be a little bigger, but overall they work fine.

Venting

The Pit Zips and Crotch vents are pretty big with a very breathable mesh.

Waist

I love the poop zip, and more bibs need to have this feature.

Liner

The Taffeta liner is burly and thick, so it protects the membrane but also feels smooth and comfortable inside.

Conclusion

So I really enjoyed having the Airblaster Beast Suit for the season and still enjoy having it in my outerwear quiver. It’s an excellent snow barrier, and you get a lot for this price point.
