I'm looking for some bibs, jackets, gloves, helmets etc. for myself, the wife & my son. Just wondering what after market brands you've had and how good they are. I'm looking for the best quality and value. Of course I don't think I needed to write that. I'm pretty sure that's what most people want. lol

I bought an Ice Rider suit 5 years ago, still looks good, no problems with seams coming out or any quality issues at all. And there's the extra safety of having a floater suit. Don't know if it REALLY works or not, haven't tried it out (the floating part anyways) but it's something to think about. It's also very warm, I'd definitely recommend it if warmth is an issue for you. Hope this helps. Good Luck!

I'm all Cold Waved out. I did a lot of searching around. In my opinion, I thought it was the best quality for what I could buy locally. I also liked the fact that I could try it on to check sizing. My buddy bought some clothing on-line to save some money, nothing fit when he received it.

All Coldwave Prostar cordura here, warm, durable, only complaint is that when I sit on my sled my front pants snap always pops, but that could be because of what I'm packin' underneath it LOL!

Reima makes some of the best clothing in my opinion. If you look around at some snowmobile shows or at dealers after season you can get a good price. Otherwise they are expensive.

I will add another vote for Reima. The factory doo stuff is good too. None of it is cheap though.

I also give a vote to reima. I saw that you were from mich. but I found some really good deals at the auction in bronson mich. They have an auction on the 5th of next month. I am talking about the store on site also not the auction itself.

I have a pair of Reima "Holeshot" bibs... first "decent" pair I bought, got sick of having a wet butt. These keep me warm and dry.
I have a Doo jacket that I picked up for $150 at the Hastings show a couple years ago. Nice purpose-built jacket. My point here is that if you do want Doo gear, look offseason and you don't really have to pay more than "aftermarket" prices.
One other thing...if you can spare the cash, go big...you'll be saving in the long run when you don't have to re-buy your gear. Having a long trip ruined by cold, wet hands or butt really bites.
