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.”
