Baker Bib gets callout for “Best Of” awards
There are no outdoor gear reviews out there quite like Blister. The reviewers at this gear site and bi-annual magazine go so in-depth, it's like reading a college thesis on ski pants or tech bindings. We're talking 2,000-word reviews on everything from base layers to powder skis. In Blister's annual Winter Buyer's Guide, which is as heavy as a textbook and out now, features Flylow's Baker Bib for men and the new-for-this-year Kenzie Jacket for women. Both reviews commended the gear for being durable and long-lasting and also affordable.
"The Kenzie has a longer silhouette than a typical ski jacket, but is shorter than the traditional long, insulated parka," it says. Adding, "All of that makes the Kenzie a high-quality, warm jacket—and at $325, it's far less expensive than most comparable options."
For the Baker Bib, it says, "These are the burliest bibs we've ever used, but they're also not nearly the most expensive. The Baker Bib remains a phenomenal choice for those who are very hard on their outerwear."
Be sure to pick up a copy of the Blister Winter Buyer's Guide for in-depth analysis of all of this season's best new gear.
splitOn especially frigid days, you’ll wear the Kenzie Jacket—a long, super-warm puffy, packed with 800-fill down—skiing at the resort. But mostly, you’ll wear this jacket everywhere else: booting up at the car, walking the dog, out to dinner. It’s a cozy down comforter you can wear. Underarm vents and a breathable membrane keep you from roasting. A hood and hand pockets add extra comfort. The Pertex Quantum fabric on the exterior is tightly woven to increase the efficiency of the down.

Stoked on the new gear? Us too! We've got more sizes of the Baker Bib on the way so hang tight if you don't see yours just yet.
The Baker Bibs are a stout pair of 20k/20k three-layer bibs that can handle any powder day.
Many bibs are created purely for ski mountaineering. And yeah, our bibs can handle alpine ascents, but they also fit loose and are comfortable enough to rock the resort or the après-ski scene. They’ve got waterproof Surface 3-layer fabric, ample pocket storage for maps and essential gear, cuff reinforcements to deflect rips, and big inner and outer thigh vents for heart-pumping climbs. A DWR coating means your gear will stay drier longer.
