Here is a Genuine Vintage 1970 Arctic Cat, ARCTIC WEAR one-piece "cover all snow suit" from Arctic Enterprises Inc, of Thief River Falls, Minnesota. This is a size 3 (medium, 240-270 lbs.). Please see our Vintage Sizing, and Condition Guide links at the bottom of the page. This suit is rated at Very Good condition. The 1970 men's and women's suits were sized the same and could be worn universally. The main differences were the leg zippers, hoods, and a pocket on the chest of "some" of the men's suits. There was no guaranteed standard that was followed, as was the same with the snowmobiles of the time.

This particular suit has the "ARCTIC WEAR" name label and a drop down tab with the size on it. Most suits I have seen had the size number on the label itself and the label said “Arctic Snow-Suit”. It is my belief that this was a transition suit leading into the 1971 season.

This suit has a great "ARCTIC CaT SNOWMOBILE" patch on the left chest area, a warm fur-like black collar, and the silver-black-silver bands around the upper arm/shoulder.

There are two deep double reinforced front pockets with a snapped flap closure. All zippers are the heavy duty metal zippers and all are in good condition. There are snaps at the bottom of the legs to tighten them up to fit inside your boots and prevent the zippers from creeping open. A full front snow flap with snaps covers the front zipper. There are snaps on either side of the collar for a chin strap (missing). All snaps work fine and are not rusted. The only issue with the snaps is wear on the painted coating. The zipper for the hood is also in great shape. There is no hood included. The attached belt is adjustable and has the T clasp buckle. The wrist cuffs are a tight weatherproof elasticized nylon.

These suits have the heavy duty fine weave nylon shell similar to that of the latter EXT and ArcticRider suits and other top line Arctic Cat snowmobile suits. This suit is the 400 denier nylon shell with an 8 oz polyester insulation and nylon inner. All major seams are taped and double stitched to make them weather tight and durable.

This is an Adult Medium.  Both the men's and women's styles were the same as far as sizing and the main construction. Please go with the measurements below and compare with something you already know fits.

Wear this great 1970 Arctic Cat snowmobile suit at the next Vintage ride, Snowmobile Swap Meet or Show with pride!
