Toasty commander against winter warfare.
Filled with clusters of 800-fill goose down, the FlyLow Men's General's Down Hooded Jacket squashes wintry insurgencies by trapping thermal warmth in sub-freezing temperatures. This down jacket is an ideal choice for layering under a waterproof shell when you're ripping the resort on cold-smoke powder days, also excelling as a standalone jacket for shivery nights beside the campfire. It compactly folds into its self-stow pocket for efficient storage during backcountry tours and camping trips.
The ultra-light 20D polyester shell features a High Performance DWR treatment, ensuring the down insulation stays dry and lofting throughout light precipitation. Baffled stitch-through construction prevents the down insulation from clumping together and creating cold spots like cheaper jackets. Six-inch underarm vents rapidly disperse excess heat, so you're never overly hot during aerobic alpine activity. There's also a helmet-compatible hood for sealing out blasts of frigid air once you've reached the summit.

- Q & A
Solid down jacket
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
Flylow always makes great gear and this is no different. Very warm and has lots of pockets in the right places. More of a relaxed fit style compared to some other manufactures like Arcteryx of Marmot. Very warm and still lightweight.
My Favorite Down Jacket
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: XL
This has to be one of my favorite down jackets ever! The jacket is super comfortable and warm. Besides wearing it as my everyday winter jacket, I have used this under my shell on some cold winter days skiing. The best test I have had so far has been at Brighton ski resort on a negative eight degree morning. The puffy kept me super warm even as I was peaking the top of the chairlift at over 10k ft.
My favorite parts about this jacket are the pit zips which many down jackets lack. This is a great option for when you get a little hot. Another cool but minor feature is the elastic bands on the wrist which help keep out the snow.
As for the fit, I am 5'11"/215 lbs/38 waist and the XL fits me well with a little bit of extra length, which I actually prefer. If you were my height but weighed around 170-180 the L would probably fit better.
