Switchback Travel Reviews a Selection of Flylow's Best

“Impressively well-rounded” one reviewer says.

 

Outdoor gear resource Switchback Travel recently reviewed the best ski jackets of the year—including the Flylow Malone Jacket for men and the Lucy Jacket for women.

“For sidecountry hikes or quick backcountry tours, the stretchy construction and smooth interior offer standout comfort,” the staff writes about the Malone Jacket. “We also think Flylow nailed the styling of both the Malone and Lucy—particularly in the tri-color patterns—and all of the materials impressed us from a quality standpoint.”

In a review of the Lucy Jacket, tester Sarah Nelson calls the new women’s jacket “impressively well-rounded” and a “highly protective barrier against the elements.” She noted the jacket’s high collar, soft-feeling fabric, and great freedom of movement as perks for why this jacket works both in resort and in the backcountry. “For skiers that prioritize comfort but don’t want to sacrifice wet-weather protection, the Lucy is a great match,” Nelson writes.

Don’t miss Switchback’s review of the best ski pants, either. It includes the men’s Baker Bib and women’s Foxy Bib. “The Baker is a perfect match for its namesake hill: it’s built to handle anything from wet, unruly conditions to bottomless powder days,” the staff writes. Not a bib guy? The Chemical Pants got a nod of approval, too: “Like their Baker Bib above, this is a super tough design with a 3-layer build, Cordura patches in high-wear areas like the knees, and waterproof zippers.”

Gloves and mittens can be such a personal choice, but Switchback Travel also reviewed the best gloves and mittens for every preference. That included our well-loved Ridge Glove, which, of course, we pretreat by hand and bake in our Denver warehouse—so you don’t have to deal with that process in your home oven.

The review states, “Instead of an intense regimen of waxing treatment, Flylow takes that pain away by doing it for you, three times, which helps make up for the added price difference of their glove … The Flylow Ridge are great resort and backcountry gloves for anyone on a budget, and they tend to be quite durable and breathable.”

Malone Jacket

You’ll find stretch, resilience, and quick-drying qualities in the do-it-all Malone Coat.

split

Think of the Malone Jacket like your one-ski quiver, your favorite boards that do everything well. This jacket, made from Tactic 3-layer softshell, is light, stretchy, and breathable enough for a backcountry tour but still substantial enough for pounding laps at the resort. Stormy out? We made it with a quick-drying fabric that repels wind and sleet. If you’re going in the backcountry and don’t want extra weight, simply zip out the powder skirt.

Lucy Jacket

A long, comfy fit, high-end features, and a laid-back style make the Lucy Jacket a fast favorite.

split
Slide on the Lucy Jacket and you won’t want to take it off: It’s that comfortable. Ready for a day in the backcountry or spinning the lifts at the resort, this jacket has the stretchy, buttery feel of softshell and the stormproof properties of a tough hardshell, a fabric known as Tactic 3L. Better yet, it has technical features and high-performance qualities, but it doesn’t look overly techy—because you don’t always want your kit to scream “I just climbed a mountain!” (Even if you just did.)

Foxy Bib

We guarantee you will love these bibs. (Send ’em back if we’re wrong.)

split
You’ve likely spotted the Foxy Bib in a liftline or on a skintrack near you. These are cult favorites, worn by a loyal following of lady shredders. The Foxy is flattering and functional, an all-star bib made with Tactic 3-layer softshell and packed with technical features. It has all the trappings you’d want and more: stretchy, waterproof breathable fabric, a kangaroo chest pouch for storing chapstick or snacks, and generous thigh vents for spring tours. Inside tip: Unzip the long side vent and peel back the seat for an easy-peasy way to use the backcountry ladies’ room.

Baker Bib

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.  We will have 3 more shipments coming starting the end of October 2021.  

 

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.
