This is a vintage 1970 Arctic Cat, Men's size 5 one-piece coverall snowmobile suit in good condition. These suits were made of a tight weave 400 denier nylon shell that was very durable and that breathed to help wick away moisture. They had a nylon interlining and an 8oz allergy free polyester insulation. All seams were taped and double stitched and they kept the insulation in place even when the stitching on the quilted liner failed, which happened quite often. This suit has a few loose quilting threads but not too bad. The 1970 suits had the double silver and black bands around the shoulder to sleeve seam. They have the adjustable strap belt with the T-clasp buckle.

This suit has the faux fur lined collar and these suits had the faux fur lined chin strap that snapped on either side of the collar. It is not with this suit, nor is the zippered hood. The knit wrist cuffs are in good condition. The 1970 suits have two large double stitched front leg pockets with snapped closures, and a large chest patch pocket with a snapped flap. Some pockets had the ARCTIC CAT SNOWMOBILE "swoosh" patch on the pocket and some on the shoulder. This one is on the shoulder. This suit has an inside zippered pocket behind the outer chest pocket. The label inside has the Arctic Cat "swoosh" design with ARCTIC WEAR lettering and the famous Arctic Cat 'Cat Head'.

This suit has the full neck to fly two-way zipper and a snapped wind flap that covers it. All snaps are good as well as the zipper. The legs have the two-way zipper that zips from the hip to the bottom or from bottom to top. The zippers are all the heavy duty metal zippers. The snaps at the leg cuffs work well but do have some scratches on the caps; not rusty.

This suit has been worn but it is not worn out. It is ready to wear as it is. There is a little bit of fuzz at the seat but it is not bad. It does have some light soiling that may come off simply by wiping it with a damp rag. There is a superficial burn on the interlining near the snap at the bottom of the left leg. A penny sized hole in the liner material was net stitched just enough to keep the insulation from getting pulled out. If I was going to use this suit I would hand sew a small piece of light material over it or just slap a little Shoe Goo on it. Or you could leave it as it is, your choice.

This suit would be great to wear at the vintage snowmobiling events and meets for the smaller guy or gal, or just for display. It would also be a great way for the younger person to take part in the vintage snowmobile craze.

The sizing in 1970 was the same for the adult men's and women's snowmobile suits, by weight. They both had the same size numbering. The size 5 was for an adult weighing between 100 to 120 lbs. It would be the equivalent to a men's size XS. Please use the measurements in More Details and compare to something you know fits well for a proper fit.
