About the Flylow Gear Swindler Jacket:  LOVE THIS JACKET!  Designed and built for the mountain lifestyle, this jacket is a true four season use jacket.  One you don’t hang up. The swindler keeps you looking awesome from the mountain, to the bar, and everywhere else.  Wear it under your Higgin’s shell while up on the mountain, or over your thermal layer on your boot pack up to the top of  your line or over a graphic t-shirt at the bar while as you tell everyone who went the biggest today (you… of course).

Construction:  The Swindler is a product of ultralight polyester ripstop and filled with a tech mix called micro puff insulation.  With 40-grams Thermolite insulation you will be kept warm as an insulator layer.  Plus, it is super durable and will not easily snag.  Extend the collar up easily for additional warmth inside your shell. Chest pockets are unique from other jacket pockets to avoid chunky excess bulk.  Plus the addition of DWR treatment means you can get away with wearing this as a shell or outer layer.
