The Flylow Nina Pant, Randal Jacket, Unicorn Mittens, and Sinclair and Penny Insulated Flannels get some love from reviewers to cap off 2021.
We could go on and on about the things we’re grateful for this year, as 2021 comes to a dramatic (snowy!) close. You, for starters, is a major thing we’re thankful for: Our loyal customers, the people who keep coming back to support small, independent brands. So, officially, thank you for your support.
We’re also thankful for our independent retailers, who’ve hung in there through a pandemic and supply chain shortages and all the rest this wild year has brought. If you still need to do some holiday shopping, be sure to check out a local Flylow dealer near you for in-store items that you can pick up today.
And we also owe a nod of gratitude to our friends in the media, who test Flylow gear in the mountains and share what they like (and sometimes even what they don’t like) so that others can make informed decisions about what gear they buy. Here’s a roundup of some recent press in everything from Women’s Health to Unofficial Networks.
Women’s Health Magazine named Flylow’s Nina Pant among the top-20 women’s ski pants of the year, calling them the best for contemporary ski pant design. “The top-rated Nina Pant from Flylow offers a boatload of functional features, a sleek modern silhouette and huge pockets,” says Lexi Dowdall, director of the International Freeskiers Association. “This brand offers some of the most interesting and contemporary designs in skiing and it’s always a fan favorite amongst die-hard skiers.” Dowdall says she loves the way these pants tend to fit any body type.
For those with cold hands, MomTrends.com reviewed our Unicorn Mitts in a holiday gift guide, saying, “Flylow has captured the mythological sensation of warm fingers with the Unicorn Mitten,” writes blogger Nicole Feliciano. “These mitts are made from durable and super weather-resistant pigskin leather, and a nylon Cordura backing, all treated with DWR to keep water rolling off. These are what unicorns could wear if they could ski.” Feliciano loved the neutral color, with the slight pop of pink.
For men, the new midlayer Randal Jacket was a favorite amongst Unofficial Network’s contributor Rich Stoner, who included the jacket among nine new accessories that’ll have you stoked for this ski season. “There are some days when you need a little extra to keep you warm,” Stoner writes. “Hoodies, as cool and fun as they are, are not always the best choice as a mid-layer. That’s where the zip up Randal comes into play. The sleek nature of the Randal layers well under your shell jacket and can even fit under some of the newer less puffy insulated jackets. This will certainly keep you warm as the material wicks moisture from your lower layers. With all the added overlays in just the right spots, its durability is unquestioned and when the ski day ends you are looking for something light to wear to the bar, Randal is your guy.”
Lastly, if you need a last-minute gift, OntheSnow.com has some ideas, including our Penny Insulated Flannel and Sinclair Insulated Flannel as the best gift for a new school look with an old school vibe. “It’s a shirt, it’s a jacket, no…it’s the Flylow Insulated Flannel. The Sinclair and the Penny have the look and feel of a button-up flannel, but with an interior insulated with 40 grams of Spaceloft synthetic down and lined with silky taffeta,” pens writer Krista Crabtree. “The heavy-duty, quick metal snaps can be buttoned on the fly and the chest pocket adds an attractive flair to the poly-brushed flannel exterior. Both the Sinclair and the Penny come in three colorways.”
