Less is more with the Airblaster Men's Hoodless Ninja Suit. It still features the cozy Air Tech fabric and easy-access waist zipper that you love about the original Ninja Suit, but with shorter legs that won't overlap with your socks in your boots and a hoodless design for those who prefer to let their beanies do the work.
Airblaster's Air Tech fabric is made with brushed polyester and Lycra for a cozy feel and unrestricted mobility. The fit is next-to-skin to help it wick moisture and insulate more effectively, and thumb holes in the cuffs prevent snow from getting in your sleeves. There's no need to worry about what happens if the need to go #2 overwhelms you when you're at the mountain—a 350-degree waist zipper makes it easy to take care of business without having to completely undress.

I bought last years model on sale this year, was told they are the same. First bought the small and while waiting the quantity of medium was only a couple. So I ordered also a med because I was worried about height on sizing. The small said up to 5'6" and I am 5'9" plus and 140#. I wanted to try one of these but didn't want them riding up my crotch. Once the small arrived and tried it on I new it was a fit. It even some room to spare at my jewels but also all around (not too much). I would think the small would fit up to 5'10"+ if you are skinny. Never even put on the medium.
Comparing to my capilene 4 one piece, rab ps farmer john, and all my other baselayers are smartwool. It is not the warmest but still warm. Some cons are that it stinks easy (maybe that is just me since I always stink). Some pros are the #2 and #1 are user friendly (helpful when you work on mountain all day), no hood (even tho I love my capilene hood on cold windy days), 3/4 pant is way to go with ski boots. Not the easiest to get in and out of but who cares if you don't need to until you are done.
Airblaster please make wool ones with different thickness, w/o hood and 3/4 legs. Overall great work, my favorite baselayer.
Just picked up the Ninja Suit for the 2013-14 season and after a few days on the mountain, temps ranging from 5 degrees to 45 degrees, I can tell that it is going to treat me very well for the rest of the season. It breathes really well and keeps the sweat out on the warmer days, but traps the heat when I'm bundled up on those chilly days. AKA the perfect baselayer. The one piece design also keeps me dryer and my butt crack out of sight after a yard sale :) I'd recommend this piece to anyone on the mountain.
I love the Ninja Suit but there are times when you don't need the hood and it only gets in the way. To me, the best feature of the Hoodless Ninja may be the calf-length shant. Say goodbye to either tucking your baselayer bottoms in to your boots or bunching them up around your knees. These bottoms stop where your snowboard socks start. My other favorite part is never having to deal with the uncomfortable feeling of getting snow down your back. I would highly recommend this to friends!
