Warmup Down Bottom // A Ski Racer's Review

by Roger Carry on January 15, 2021

Hello everyone, and welcome back to the weekly stoke. Today is all about the next best training piece, and that is the Warmup Down Bottoms: this GS skier’s new best friend. 

As a GS skier, I am constantly looking for ways to make training more effective in order to gain just a little more speed. During training days, I have always been the one to want as few layers on as possible to reduce any form of stiffness or training limitations. I hate anything that makes me feel like I can’t move! This thought process made me pretty skeptical about the idea of the ¾ Warmup Down Bottoms because why would I try something that could potentially slow me down? After careful consideration and a couple of extremely cold days, I decided that it was time to try out these new training pants. I had heard some people already starting to talk about the benefits of training in the Warmup Down Bottoms and how nice it was to have a layer that keeps you warm but also doesn’t restrict. 

Game time to try them out. 

First off, it was really surprising to see how easily they went on. I was able to take my snow pants and coat off and put my Warmup Down Bottoms on in the span of a few minutes without any struggling or fighting with the zipper. Once on, it was amazing to ride up the lift and have my legs not even notice the wind or cold. It was now time for the real test and the moment of truth whether the Warmup Downs would feel restricting while I was actually in a course. I kicked out of the start gate and skied to the bottom, and I was thrilled that the bottoms moved with every one of my hip drags and transitions while I was charging down the GS course. After that session I now pack my ¾ zip Warmup Down Bottoms every day for GS training and always have the flexibility to train with warmth while also working on getting faster. 

What if your next edge was a way to train longer, keep your muscles warmer, and allow you to spend more time worrying about your speed than your cold muscles? Would you try it? 

I’ll catch you all next week.

great shell

love the jacket, its an excellent shell.. would be good to have a sleeve zip pocket for lift pass, and an internal zip pocket for phone, but its got enough pockets to make it work.
Id love this same jacket with insulation too - a proper jacket not just a shell...
but as far as shells go, this one is awesome
customer service is first class

Does the job, very comfortable!

My Shoulders Thank Me

Fits great, and does a great job protecting my arms and shoulders.

when its 5 degrees, blowing 20mph and you are on the sunless ice box called "the narrow gauge" for 8 hours on race day, this jacket lived up to its hype !

Awesome jacket

Super nice looking jacket and great weight for training. Bought to match the warm up pants and seems to work great!
