In case you've been living under a rock, Flylow which got its start as a ski outerwear company now makes mountain bike apparel and other clothes for the warmer months, too. Bike Magazine recently reviewed our mountain-bike-ready Cash Short and our Rainbreaker Jacket, which is the perfect lightweight, packable shell to toss in your pack while you ride in case of a sudden storm.
Here's what Bike Mag had to say, and check out the full review here. "If you live in Southern California (like me), rain isn't really a thing. But wind is. And if you live almost anywhere else, rain is something you probably have to deal. Enter the Rainbreaker. It is an ultra-light rain jacket that doubles as an effective wind breaker for us southern situated folk. When I say ultra-light I mean it. This jacket will pack down to about the size of a soda and it'll sit in the bottom of you bag, forgotten until called to action. When called upon, it'll keep you dry and comfortable. All the seams are taped, the hood is adjustable and it uses a waterproof nylon material--standard equipment for a raincoat. What isn't standard is the stretch. The Rainbreaker is waterproof and stretchy. It doesn't stretch much--pulling on it with your hands, it is almost unnoticeable--but spread that minuscule amount of stretch across the back and shoulders, and it makes a difference when moving around on a bike.
"So you've packed your Rainbreaker, but weather is calling for warm temperatures too. Flylow has you covered for that too. The Cash Short is lightweight and soft to the touch, with a little stretch as well. It's designed to breath well while also using a polyester-spandex mix to ensure trail-side snags don't result in rips. The inner velcro waist adjustment is low-profile and easy to dial in, there s a zippered thigh pocket for valuables and a phone-shaped velcro pocket for easy Instagram access. I should note that the phone pocket fits my iPhone 6S perfectly, but anything bigger would be a stretch. Pun noted. So dial up some Wu-Tang and slip into a pair of Cash shorts. Dollar dollar bill y'all." Read more here.
