RE:Can I wear Motobike Textile suits skiing?

Hiya All,


RE:Can I wear Motobike Textile suits skiing?

I have a beginners Ski day course tommorow. Its going to be cold!
I'm wearing my 2 pc Hein Gerike Gortex suit, to keep me warm.....

This got me thinking!

Can I wear it actually on a ski holiday?!?!


Thats if I get through tommorow ok, and catch the ski bug!) It will save me a fortune, and also make more use of the bike gear!

Did a bit of research:
1) You don't socially ski more that 30mph - hell 10mph for a beginner!
2) Needed -Windproof, Warm, waterproof ideally - hey thats my Motorbike stuff!
Ala:
How fast do you go when you ski? (mph)? - Yahoo! Answers

Hope you can advise!

Cheers
Martin

You can do anything you want. Is this for real?

What does ski speed have to do with anything? lol Planning on jumping gaps or something?

I wouldn't attempt it, wet suits have neoprene, which floats, and insulates. All the mesh is gonna do is protect you if you happen to find some pavement on the lake, :D
Poke around some classifieds, you can generally find used wetsuits for pretty reasonable prices. :cool:

Wong type of skiing. Take a wet suit to the mountains and see how warm you stay.

My bad on the wrong kind of skiing, :O
I think a wetsuit would still be warmer than mesh though, although people might look at you like you're crazy. I know even when it's 40°F~50°F or so, and I climb back into the boat after slaloming hard for a few minutes, I'm sweating inside the suit and it feels good to unzip it for a while to cool off, :D
