The Right Gear Makes The Difference
You wait all season for the Big One to arrive. When the storm finally hits, dumping feet upon feet of light, dry snow, you want gear made by people who hold product design meetings on skintracks and chairlifts. That’s Flylow’s style. We build gear to handle the burliest of days, the longest of tours, and the toughest of conditions. How long you stay out is up to you.
Some people like to wear lots of layers, some like a beefy jacket and pant (or bib) that keeps it simple. Or, sometimes when a Nor’easter or Arctic blast rolls in, you need a combination of both. As a smart person once said “there’s no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing decisions”. Make the right call and check out these outer layers that won’t crimp your style or leave you cold.
Some days, you can just roll out the door with a base layer and a jacket. Talk about simple. But with fluctuating weather conditions, temperatures, and body heat throughout the day, it’s always a good idea to bring some layering options.
The reasons to wear wool as your next-to-skin layer are many: The natural fiber dries quickly, helps regulate your temperature, and it doesn’t stink like polyester after a couple of wears. This responsibly and sustainably sourced merino wool base layer isn’t itchy like the wool tops your grandpa used to wear. It’s soft and melty as butter.
