Well-designed

With the full zipper, it’s easier to go pee while wearing this one-piece than it is in waist pants (or god-forbid, bib pants!)

I have a onesie that I wear ironically every spring. It is gold and has fur on it, and I get numerous comments on it every time I wear it. All of them come with pointing, laughing and what I can only assume is a high amount of appreciation. It is with this irony in mind that I slipped into the new CKX Nieva One Piece Suit last March. That is to say, I was prepared for it to be rad, but not necessarily a go-to piece for everyday winter adventures.

At a glance, the CKX Nieva looks very much like many other one piece suits out there. BUT, it has what I’m convinced is the greatest feature I’ve ever seen on a one piece—a zipper going from outside of the knee to hip, over the butt and down the other side—a full, zippered butt-flap. Every woman in the office is instantly sold on it.

The full-butt zipper flap is the greatest thing going!

 

When I try on the suit, the zippers don’t really have any impact on my range of motion, but the covered spandex strip around the hips and waist sure do. There’s a reason that every pair of jeans and Carhartts I’ve bought over the last three years have 10-20% spandex in them. Stretch is everything!

Ok. So I’m comfy. No waistband (win). Also, no belt (win). And, no exposed lower-back when I bend over (win). However, I’m wildly hot. Like angry hot. There are vents everywhere on the CKX Nieva One Piece, but not enough to cool the fire that comes from wearing a one-piece snowsuit indoors. I am going outside and I promise myself never to go back indoors while wearing a onesie again.

Fortunately, the CKX Nieva has plenty of zippered venting.

 

Outdoor CKX Nieva Test

It’s nuking outside. I’m prepared for a physical day and a snowy one. There’s shovelling, lifting, pulling, wrestling and a small amount of snowmobiling involved. There are heavy winds at the top, and snow everywhere. I should have brought a fleece. No, wait. I’m good. Still warm. I’m in a onesie, dammit!

I stay warm all day. I stay dry all day. Snow beads up on the jacket and doesn’t soak through my butt when I’m sitting. The pockets are awesome – they’re everywhere I need to be. Literally EVERY person I come into contact with comments on my getup. I feel like a rock star. I’m sold.

The Call of Nature

Of course, the one question every lady asks is, “But what about when you have to pee?” The CKX Nieva One Piece Suit makes this a non-issue. With the full zipper, it’s easier to go pee while wearing this one-piece than it is in waist pants (or god-forbid, bib pants!)
