"13 years ago we started out to make clothes we wanted to ski in, and that hasn't changed."
When we set out to design a new piece—a new jacket, a new pair of pants, a new glove or midlayer—it’s not just on a whim. We don’t make gear for the sake of growing the line or expanding for expansion’s sake. That’s not our style. Instead, we set out with a purpose, a goal, a specific hole we’re trying to fill. Women asked for a bib ski pant, so we created the Foxy Bib. Backcountry skiers wanted a super lightweight, streamlined kit, so we built the Genius Jacket and IQ Pant from scratch. We use and wear everything we make; if we’re not using it, not skiing in it every day, then we stop making it. Simple as that. Flylow continues to grow. But some years, our product count stays exactly the same—this new collection is actually the same size as last year, just with improved styles. No matter what, we’re staying independent, growing sustainably, mindfully, and two core skiers are still the ones designing your gear. We’re watching every step forward we take and doing it with purpose.
Lab Coat and Compound Pant Get New Fabric
The technology is microscopic. The difference is huge.
The critical difference between eVent technology and traditional waterproof/breathable fabrics is the millions of microscopic pores built in to our proprietary membrane that work instantly to vent water vapor (sweat) that builds up inside your apparel when you perform. We call this Direct Venting™ technology, and unlike other technologies, it doesn’t need to get wet to work. It’s a ‘dry system’ that allows eVent fabrics to be fully waterproof and fully breathable – keeping you dry and comfortable in the widest range of temperatures and conditions.
"When we looked at what we were wearing there were no 2 layer garments in our closet so we said, 'why are we still making this stuff"
our Three-layer Intuitive fabric reduces the weight of the gear by up to 40 percent and doubles packability
We created our proprietary Intuitive™ fabric in order to choose the ideal face fabric, membrane, and backing for each individual line of apparel we make. We select from nylons and polyester face fabrics, then pair them with high-performing DWR, 20k/20k and 10k/10k membranes to maximize the performance of every product.
