    A technical shell pant that keeps up with your mountain mayhem and doesn't slouch on style.

    No matter how cold and snowy it gets, when you move fast enough, you have to let your boys breathe. The FlyLow Gear Chemical Pant keeps all the pow out during big lines but lets in a cool breeze during the skin back up the ridge. Since you slay big lines and deep snow on the daily, you'll be stoked on the Three-Layer Intuitive Fabric in this shell pant. And since you work for your turns, this pant's inner and outer thigh vents get you all the ventilation you need to keep skinning and lapping your favorite zone.
    • Thanks to a tough nylon shell with fully taped seams and a Level 5 Dupont DWR coating, you get water-bounce and breathability for maximum big-mountain backcountry performance
    • Cordura reinforcements on the knees and cuffs reduce wear from edges and tree encounters
    • Adjustable waist tab secures the pant during big drops and walks across the parking lot
    • Three-panel construction on the knees provides an articulated fit that's ready for charging
    • Relaxed fit optimizes range of motion and allows ample layering on the colder resort days
    • Ykk waterproof zippers keeps your inner layers from getting soggy

    You can't go wrong with Flylow.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large

    These are the second pair of Flylow pants I've owned and they've yet to disappoint. I've only used these particular pants a handful of times and haven't had a chance to see how they do in full-on storm conditions, but my initial impressions are these are well-made pants and will take a beating either in the resort or in the backcountry. The knees and cuffs are reinforced with a Cordura that looks pretty much indestructible. The outer leg zips are killer when you need to lose some heat on the skintrack. I also really like the adjustable waist since I don't really like wearing a belt when I ski. They do fit a little baggier than most ski pants, if you're into that sort of thing.

    My 3rd pair of FlyLow Pants!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Large

    These are bombproof! I was first introduced to this company from a friend on their launch year. I got a brown pair (about 7 years ago?) that I put through the wringer. So bomber, I got another pair a couple of seasons later. These newest ones are even slightly better. I wear two performance knee braces when I ski and that's one of the reasons I love them. Nice and baggy around the knees, and waterproof. I'm 6'1, 195 and Large fit me perfect. You can't beat the ventilation for touring either. Inside and outside leg zippers really cool your legs for those long tours. You'll love them.

    Bombproof And Badass, Indeed

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large

    I came up on the Flylow Chemical Pant digging through the catalog, and boy am I happy with them.

    As soon as I pulled them from the box, I understood the other reviewers' observations on the build. They're built sturdily, with strong seams/stitching, nice sealed zippers, and excellent reinforcements on the knees, seat, and ankles.

    The fit of the pants falls on the baggy side, but not so as to look like a dope, or to obstruct movement when popping in and out of the moguls. An option to use suspenders would make this a 5++, but I just might add some myself. The adjustable waist bands are helpful, but the heft of the pant can have it ride down when you're moving vigorously. Other reviewers have suggested using belts, which isn't a bad idea.

    Other big plus is the location of the front pockets, which are big enough to have your phone or snack bar fit without showing too much of a profile.

    So...I definitely recommend these pants. I wore them with a simple set of running thermals in 10-14F weather and was constantly opening the inner/outer leg vents.

    Pros: build quality, thickness of the fabrics, resistance to wear off the trail, vibrant color options.

    Cons: slight waist support

    About myself: I'm 6'2, medium frame and build, 210 lbs. Waist is approx. 34-35" when measured for suits. Right now, I wear 34 Banana Republic chinos (that's my only reference I can share), and they were on the loose waist size. I definitely had to tighten the waistbands, but appreciated the width and length of the pants.

    Bombproof And Badass, Indeed

    Too baggy & too short

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: large

    This was my 6th pair of Flylow Chemical pants, going back to the originals. Sadly, this is my last pair, and I've returned them. Each year, they get baggier and shorter. Not bro baggy, which is bad enough, but oddly, inexplicably baggy. Right below the belt loops on the outside of each leg, Flylow began adding an extra yard of fabric a couple of years ago that has no discernible function: it doesn't make skinning or skiing in them any easier or more comfortable. It's just extra fabric that pooches out noticeably to each side and makes you look wide and pear-shaped(and I'm not that: 6'2" / 185 llbs) and just plain silly. And they've gotten a little shorter each year as well, so now they're just too short. I haven't changed, but Flylow has. So they're not for me anymore. The Outdoor Valhalla pant fits and looks and works almost exactly now what Flylow Chemicals used to be. Too bad.

    Flylow offers a tall inseam in this pant. I would go size large-tall and they should be money for your size. These do run big so my medium-talls would fit someone that is normaly up to 36ish +/- pretty ez. I am 34ish waist with a bit longer legs and prefer the tall inseam. Love em.

    High Quality with Lots of Vents

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large

    I ordered these in XL. Main selling point for me was the product quality and number of vents the chemical pants have - great for dumping heat while touring. Knees and ankle cuffs are double reinforced and have held up great. Surprised to see how large they fit especially since I ordered up a size on my Higgins coat, which seems to run small. Overall, I definitely recommend the chemical pants.

    Built like a tank, perfect fit

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large

    Evidently this is the product that put the company on the map and we now understand why. The design has changed little over the years and is a testament. These are just superbly designed pants that are built like a tank. One great change was the 13/14 upgrade to the same 3L, 20k/20k Intuitive fabric as the Quantum Jacket. This results in a noticeable increase in waterproofness with a decrease in weight. With this rugged fabric and articulated, reinforced knees, these pants will likely last years, without being heavy and cumbersome. With a slightly baggy fit, these are the lightest feeling, most well-fitting, comfortable pants we’ve worn in years – actually – ever! We say “baggy”, but not like park rat pants, just enough for total freedom of movement. Add “through” ventilation with thigh vents inside and outside, large zipper pulls, a heavy duty “jeans” style front button (instead of the dreaded snap) and belt loops (missing on many brands) and you have the best ski pants on the market today. Minor critiques: none

    Built like a tank, perfect fit

    Ok I Guess

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size

    I purchased these as a replacement for my TNF Freedom Pants, which I've had for a long, long time. Based on all the great reviews, and the price, I guess I was hoping to be wowed by these. But after a couple of uses, I have to say that they're nice pants, but nothing spectacular.


    - Seem to fit true to size (I'm 6' 1", 220 lbs and a XL fit well).

    - Burly knees and cuffs

    - Pretty stylish


    - Knee reinforcement area seemed to be just a little low on me, so the top of it keeps catching on my knee area and irritating

    - Pretty thin material - definitely need a thick baselayer underneath.

    - No mesh liner in the vent zips

    - Cost

    I really wanted to love these pants, by after several uses, I don't really see the point in dropping a couple of hundred more bucks on these over my tried-and-trues.

    Love these pants, but too short

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small

    I really like the material, the style and the functionality of all of the Flylow pant models (I have used or at least tried on every model), the only problem is they all have an unusually short inseam. This may not be an issue for average size guys, but for any of you that are taller (+31.5" inseam) but have an average waist (32"-35") these pants likely will not fit well.

    I'm in Colorado, I love this local band and their success story. I just wish they would offer a long size option.

    Patrolling Pants

      I use these every day on Ski Patrol. I heard this year's model uses a thinner fabric than prior years and isn't as well built, but I don't have experiance with them before this year so I can't comment on that. I have probably 60-70 days on them this year and they have held up reasonably well for the abuse I give them, a few cuts down on the legs but nothing huge. The left large outside vent zipper comes appart unless I have one of the pulls all the way at the top which is my only real complaint so far. They are comfortable and it is hard to find a pant with reinforced knees such as on these. I spend a lot of time kneeling at work doing patient care and the knees on the pants are still in good shape.

      almost perfect

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      The best ski pants I have ever owned, and I've owned a lot! The size large is just a little too short to cover my Scarpa T-1's past the second buckle. I'm 6'1" with a 34" waist.

      Tough as Nails, yet lightweight

        I've been looking for pants like these for some time. I ski pretty agressive and my lower pant legs get sliced up constantly. I went through several pairs of Markers using Duct tape and tent seal to fix the slices. I then went to a pair of Descente pants with rubberized cuffs on the inside legs. these work well, but the cuffs are only 6" high, and I needed something that covers about 10" of height. I found these pants and they are unbreakable. I skied them in Utah last week and they took heavy abuse in the cuff area, with no slices whatsoever. The full zippers are also an extremely useful feature. The one thing I did like about the Descente pants over these are that these are not as warm. I never got chilled but in very cold weather I think they would not be as warm.

        Well worth the money I paid for them - less expensive than my Descente's and tougher.

        New pants...

          I only have about 3 resort days on these pants but I have to say they are pretty sweet. I have no negative comments on their construction or burliness at all. I will likely end up replacing these long before I burn them out from the looks of things. Going to tour in them in February (that’s what I bought them for) and they are very light and have huge vents. I expect them to perform well. If I have anything negative to say after that trip I will report but no new will be good news and I don’t anticipate anything. I am 5-10 and 165 with a lean build and the M is fine. If anything it is a little big. I am not sure if the small would have worked but it might have. I am happy with the M and have no intention of switching them out. At present I do not have one but I have tried on a few of their coats in M and that is my size there so who knows… Don’t sweat picking up a pair of these pants if you are on the fence. They are legit.

          The Burliest

            Far as pants go, I haven't had anything tougher. Not as heavy as they look, actually pretty light, but just overbuilt to the max. Super waterproof, and the HUGE vents make skinning like wearing shorts. My only complaint would be the pockets are kinda small. Oh, and you're gonna need a belt. They're baggy.

            Vermont Fav!

              These pants are super water proof, super windproof, breathable, burly, all around great. I can't even envision these wearing out. I love the vents, the reinforced knees and ankles, and powder cuffs. My only complaint -a bit more of a baggy park cut than i prefer. On the flip side, they can take a ton of layering under them. I recommend this with out a doubt!

              I'm 5'9 and 197lbs with a 36 in waist. should I go with a large or xxl in the Flylow Chemical pants.


              I'd say with a 36 waist, you're on the edge of both sizes. For me, it would come down to whether I prefer a tighter pant or a loser pant.

              So if you want a tigher pant, go Large. If you want a loser pant, go XL.

              Im 5'11" and wear a 34" waist pant. Anyone have any sense if I should go medium or large? Feel like I'm right on the cusp.

              disagree repectfully with Dan...have owned a few pair and the large will be like a sail on you. If you like wearing them lower toward your hips or have a ahorter inseam size medium regular is fine. If you have longer legs and wear them a little higher order a medium-tall from Flylow.
