Flylow Gear employee’s favorite jacket…..the quantum jacket!
About the jacket:
- 100-percent taped seamsbig ol’ pit zips
- waterproof YKK zippers
- helmet-compatible hood
- emovable powder skirt
- articulated shoulders and sleeves
- 1000-denier Cordura in high-wear zones.
- Polartec Neoshell: waterproof and breathable
Similar to the lab coat and the higgins in feel and cut, this jacket seemed like the best value. I had an opportunity to get into this jacket the tail end of last season……..a blustery day at Steven’s Pass. The lab coat did not disappoint.
A favorite of Flylow employees for its durability and versatility, the three-layer Quantum Jacket is one of Flylow’s toughest hardshells. The waterproof, breathable shell is truly adaptable for all conditions—blizzard, freezing temps, or pond-skimming alike. Large underarm vents keep you cool on a bootpack and a removable powder skirt blocks snow on deep days. Large, internal Junk Truck pockets easily store all that stuff you can’t leave home without.
Pockets: 4 pockets in the front. You are ready to rip.
So with FLYLOW I wear an XXL. Really. Their XL is to tight on me at 6’2 195lbs. But the pants I roll out in a XL, which fits just fine, length and all.
The jacket has a great cut to it. Tailor fit almost. The back of the jacket is cut a little lower offering a small tail. The shoulders fit snug but not too tight. All in all, another stellar production from Flylow.
Color: Red was my fav. It is actually much red in person….
