The Coat Check 2019—The Airblaster Beast Suit Reviewed

SNOWBOARDER Magazine traveled all the way to Baldface Lodge high above Nelson, BC to experience some all-time cat boarding while getting a first look at how 8 new high-end men’s jackets perform when navigating storm conditions, descending waist deep pow and keeping us composed despite our succumbing to the froth effect. Rather than settling for a kit that is a sum of its parts, The Airblaster Beast Suit provides an all in one solution to your powderwear needs. Check out the first specs below!

Airblaster Beast Suit
MSRP: $419.99

While SNOWBOARDER is certain that this one piece is worn in any and all conditions, there is no denying that the Beast Suit is best suited for those deepest of days when leaving any orifice exposed isn’t an option. Created for those discerning descenders who see anything that can enhance a pow day as a worthwhile acquisition, i.e. split boards, swallow tails and tapered shapes, the Beast Suit does a damn fine job of causing riders to forget that they aren’t clad in a normal jacket and pant combo. This is done with loose yet tailored styling, traditional pocket placements, strategic venting and an ingenious waist zipper design that will keep you from having any hang-ups when nature is calling.

Solid for all types of conditions. p: Mike Yoshida
