Ok, everybody knows that my favorite snowmobiling gear is KIMPEX/CKX gear. That is no surprise, the gear is the most reasonable priced gear on the planet and is bullet proof. I have yet to wear out any of my CKX Snowmobile gear.
My biggest issue with CKX snowmobile gear was they seemed to cater to the flat lander types of snowmobiler, and that is ok. That gear is rugged, warm, and works great for what it was designed for. I found myself using the CKX racing gear for my mountain sledding adventures. This gear is designed to allow lots of movement and is designed for spirited riding like you do in the mountains.
This year CKX came out with a couple of designs directed at the Mountain Sledder Segment, so you know I had to try it out. This new gear is designed to be worn in layers so you can peel off a layer or 2 if you get too hot while riding. It is just as easy to add if you start getting chilled from lack of movement. Trust me, that is me at the end of a hard day in the back country. I chose their new helmet and goggle combination to compliment my gear selection. Boots are a new design and very lightweight, but super comfy to wear & so so warm on the toes. I stick with the same gloves because they are so soft and so nice to wear, but super rugged and warm.
So far this season I have worn this new mountain gear in Montana and Wyoming with altitudes of over 9000 feet in elevation with absolutely no issues at all. The gear is not only easy on the eyes but everybody I have rode with has made nice compliments about it too. Way to go CKX, you have a home run and welcome to the Mountain Sledder Segment, you have arrived in style.
I can't say enough good things about this gear, is is warm, stylish, layer-able, and tough as nails. The cool thing about this gear is the purchase of the new CKX Mountain Apparel will not break the bank, so you will have plenty of money left over for sledding trips. What else can a person ask for?
The bottom line is when you see me in the back country sledding in Wyoming or Montana, this is the gear you will see me wearing. Just don't be eying up my gear to closely, because I am not parting with it. If you are on limited funds and would like great snowmobiling gear that works, check out your local dealer and ask for the CKX Brand.
