SNEWS Covers Kane Jacket, Smythe Bib

In a video interview with Flylow's cofounder Dan Abrams, SNEWS Editor-in-Chief Kristin Hostetter talks shop.

In this video, SNEWS Editor-in-Chief Kristin Hostetter interviews Flylow cofounder Dan Abrams about this winter's Kane Jacket and Smythe Bib.
They talk about everything from the pieces' features and fabrics, mysterious snaps (and what they're meant for), and who the target customer for this jacket and pants are (skiers with a backcountry habit!).

Abrams talks about their design and testing process—which takes place entirely in the mountains. "We are trying to hone in on that last 20 percent of what makes a garment excellent—fit, pocket placement—and for that, you really need to be using it in the field," says Abrams."

Kane Jacket

Our lightest touring jacket yet, the Kane Jacket offers absurd amounts of stretch and air permeability.

split
Made with our customized The Perm fabric, by Intuitive, the Kane Jacket prioritizes air permeability for high-motion activities like backcountry skiing, so heat can escape your body before you sweat, regulating your temperature. This supremely lightweight jacket is stretchy and supple, which is critical when you’re trying to kickturn in tight trees or stuff the jacket into your already-jammed backcountry pack. It takes the durability and packability of a 3-layer ski jacket but without any unnecessary extras (powder skirt … why bother?). It’s got underarm vents, a helmet-compatible hood, no shoulder seams to reduce friction while wearing a pack, and ample pockets.

Smythe Bib

Our lightest weight bib pant, the Smythe is built for bagging peaks without overheating.

split
With the Smythe Bib, we set out to make a light and supremely breathable bib tough enough to withstand the abuse of the backcountry. The Smythe Bib is built from our customized The Perm fabric, by Intuitive, for stretch, waterproofness, and air permeability, making these light, streamlined pants the go-to choice for backcountry riders. A stretch woven softshell top on the bib is ultra breathable. Outer thigh pockets can be accessed while wearing a harness and chest pocket was built to fit around backpack straps. Like classic Flylow pants, they come with reinforced cuffs, articulated knees, and cross flow venting to help you stay out longer.
