Two Flylow pieces named among the summer's best gear for mountain bikers and hikers.
If you've ever stood atop a breezy summit without the proper layers and thought, 'A windbreaker sure would be nice right about now,' then you understand why we made the Davis Jacket, a unisex, water-resistant windbreaker that's as light as a bag of chips but way more protective.
Outside Magazine's annual Summer Buyer's Guide is out now and their testers picked the Davis Jacket as a must-have for hikers. We like to think of it as a layer for many pursuits: Whether you're on a mountain bike ride on a breezy day, on a boat in the middle of a lake, or trail running in the fall. "For blustery ridges and cool mornings, grab this windbreaker," the review reads. "The DWR treatment makes it a great oh-shit layer."
Another favorite of Outside's testers? The new and already loved women's Tia Short, which comes in three fun-loving colors (including one called taffy). Outside calls the shorts "made for big rides" and praises its comfortable elastic waistband and nearly invisible pocket.
The Davis Jacket is the air-permeable windbreaker you (yes, you, especially if you’re a mountain biker) need all year long.
Some days, you need protection from the elements—wind, rain, sun. Maybe you’re spring skiing, mountain biking in the fall, or trail running midsummer. But you don’t want to overheat. Enter the Davis Jacket, the lightweight, air-permeable windbreaker you need all summer long. This durable, bike-ready shell adds a layer of defense with supreme breathability, so you don’t have to take it off even when your temps go up. This packable, simplified design is made for those days when skies look iffy, but it’s the one chance you have to get out.
While the Davis is a unisex style, it is based on our men's sizing. We hope you enjoy the best fit so if you have questions give our staff and resident gear experts a shout!

splitSure, going downhill on a bike is fun and all, but you actually enjoy the climb, too. These light and fast MTB shorts are for you. Called the Tia Short, they’re built with wicking, quick-drying fabric that have enough stretch for high-motion sports but are still casual enough in style to wear after the ride, too. A low-profile waistband stays in one place even when you don’t.
