A wool version would be great since it would keep you warm even when wet.
It has no Backflap! One has to take off their shirt and jacket just to go to the bathroom. This would be a 5 star because I wear it all the time, but idea of taking off your shirt in the mens room on a cold day doesn't work. Only for around the house.
Jockey, I would buy 5 more of these if you had the backflap. I know it's comical, and that may be why it wasn't included, but it is more importantly functional.
Anyways, just be warned, no backflap.
Now one question, when can you get around to making this with the traditional rear flap in the "shorty" style. When I say shorty I mean shorts type with short sleeves. That would be really great to see, especially for out of the winter season to wear loads of other times other then really cold times.
The union suit, opposed to the two piece thermals, moves with you. There's no sliding down or riding up like there would be on the two peice.
The funtionality of the rear flap is so cool. Because it is a one piece thermal, when you got to go do your business, just drop the flap and during that time your whole body stays warm opposed to the two piece where your legs, waist, etc would be exposed to the cold.
All and all I would highly recomend this union suit to anyone of any age. I own two and plan to purchace more very soon.
The only suggestion I make to Jockey is that there could be more colors available and have it available to purchace during more times of the year so it won't sell out as fast.
Only one small issue was that it did shrink slightly after washing. However, I will buying a 2nd union suit next season.
Although our Jockey Men's Stretch Waffle Union Suit is not available in Big Man sizes right now, our merchandising and design team is currently considering whether perhaps our collections are too restrictive in terms of size. So, they've asked us to forward on to them any feedback which would tend to confirm that hypothesis. So I will be forwarding your online product review on to them for review.
Hope this helps!
