    Protection wherever and whenever.

    FlyLow Gear knew that everyone wanted a super lightweight shell, and it delivered with the Men's Genius Jacket. Being FlyLow's lightest all-season jacket yet, it's made with a modern Polartec NeoShell and no-bulk cuffs. With a helmet-compatible hood, DWR treatment, and fully taped seams, it has durable waterproof protection for snowy days on the slopes and backcountry mornings trudging through powder. Despite its resilience against the elements, the Genius Jacket is surprisingly breathable, especially with its chest pockets that also act as vents. And to allow you to move freely and comfortably, it has four-way stretch technology and articulated shoulders and sleeves.

    Extremely packable, extremely versatile

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

    Most people stick with Gore-Tex and only Gore-Tex, but Flylow's Polartec Neoshell is definitely comparable. This jacket's touring capabilities are remarkable. Completely water proof and breathes well.

    I just got back from Tour Camp with Points North Heli. I wore this jacket for almost everything: skinning up, skiing down, and staying dry while shoveling 5' of snow over our last 4 days. I've referred to this jacket as a "high-tech rain jacket," but it does just fine in the snow too.

    Cons:
    -No pit zips (but the chest vents do just fine)
    -no exterior pockets
    -Need to layer for cold resort days (advertised as a touring jacket anyway)

    Pros: Everything but the cons?
    More specifically:
    -The chest vents are awesome
    -Helmet compatible hood
    -Fit
    -Style
    -Functionality (water proof and breathable)

    I'd suggest this jacket to anybody spending time outdoors: hiking, biking, skiing, etc. If you're wearing this jacket on a cold resort day, just throw an extra layer in your pack.

    Great minimalist shell

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

    I love it now that I have the Large. I initially ordered this jacket in a medium and found the fit OK, but a little restrictive through the shoulder/armpit area. This was my first time buying Flylow and I was surprised by the fit because I really got the sense from reviews of some of the other Flylow models that their stuff fits big. But, given that this is a lightweight shell made for touring, it makes sense that Flylow went with a slightly trimmer fit.

    For comparison, my previous shell was a medium Arcteryx Sabre SV, which has a very similar cut to the Genius but has either more room in the pits or more stretch in the fabric.

    Overall, I'm really into this jacket. The hood design fits a helmet perfectly and it has all the pockets I need. Personally, I wouldn't have minded pit zips as opposed to the combo pocket/vents on the front, but I get where they were coming from with this. The sleeve length is long, which feels a bit weird when you first put it on but feels normal once you're all geared up on the hill.

    I wear it with the Baker bibs in the stone colour (medium).

    Light on weight but not on protection

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

    New favorite. Stuffs small when jammed in a pack and touring but still won't let any wind in when going 60mph on a sled. This coat is simply awesome. The little bit of stretch in the fabric means you are never fighting the coat, major bonus. Highly breathable; on windy days I will tour in this and my base layer . Open up the pockets which double as vents and it will cool you right down if need be. Really solid, do it all coat that is ridiculously light weight.

    Great lightweight jacket!

    • Size Bought: XL

    Very lightweight, very durable and very breathable. What more would you want when touring in the backcountry?! I haven't had the chance to use it in bounds but I am going to assume it will be great! The one downside is it doesn't have very many pockets, but that's what backpacks and pants are for! Works very well with the Baker Bibs! Great space for layering in arms and chest area

    Great coat

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: xl

    This jacket (along with all Flylow products) is extraordinarily durable, high quality, and water proof. I was blown away by how water proof this jacket is while still being light and breathable; my friends and I tested this by dumping water bottles on it while wearing it. The water beads up and rolls off leaving me completely dry. I prefer a roomier fit so I went for the xl and it fits exactly how I wanted it to.

    so rad

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: xl

    I just picked this coat up, and am quite impressed. the fit of the XL is super dialed for my 6'2'' 200lb frame, the material is super light and streatchy, and the breathbility is perfect for high output uphill traffic.

    stoked is an understatement.

    My new daily driver

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

    Granted, I am the president of Flylow and this is our new show pony of a jacket, however I can honestly say that this is my new jacket for the season (and I can have any jacket I want).

    Why? You may ask... Well I now live in Tahoe and with the winters being... well a little under average as of late I find myself heading our for a tour at least half of the time. I also ski at Alpine Meadows, which means I typically boot packing or side stepping for 5-15 min per run to score some powder or a steep line. So, having this super breathable and light weight Flylow jacket is perfect for me.

    On full touring days in the mid 20's I can wear this jacket with a base layer on the way up, then close the vents and drop down my line, then open them up and head back up. It is pretty nice to have a jacket that can do that as well as the Genius.

    I am 5'11, 175, 38 years old and wear a LG. If I was going to spoil myself I would get a medium for summer activities too. but I am a frugal dude, so the large works all year and has good style for me in bounds.

    Oh, and I have test 2 generations of samples of this coat, so I have some experience to comment.
    Hope this helps.

    Yours truly,
    Flylow Dan
    Pres.

    I am 5' 5' and weigh 125 lbs. Is there any chance a medium would fit. I noticed there are no smalls available.
