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….
