Got the Flylow Iceman Jacket and really like it, i'm 5'11 and 170 lb so I went with a medium and the fit is great. First use was at Taos with a temp of -14, brrr. While my friends had to retreat for more layers I was nice and toasty! One small problem though, at the end of the day when I take it off my upper body is covered in tiny feathers. Hope this stops or I may send it back, I have used it 5 times now it does not seem to be getting any better. Another positive thing about this jacket is it works really well with the Flylow Baker Bibs. I just hope it stops shedding feathers!

If you live in cold climate and want to ski the resort when it is below zero, walk the dog when it's -20, or ski in a base layer when it is 10 degrees, this is the coat for you. Has pit zips too if you get too hot. Great puffy coat that won't rip when you get attacked by a tree branch. No duck tape on the Ice Man coat.
I bought the Iceman to replace a Marmot down jacket I purchased almost a decade ago. I can't speak to the warmth of the jacket since it's the middle of July, but it has every other feature that the Marmot was missing and then some.
#1 Pit-zips; having a warm jacket is great, but if you can't adjust for overheating you're going to sweat=get wet=gonna have a bad time. Pit zips are also two-directional so you can vent just the body or just the arms, depending on what's needed.
#2 Cut longer than my old Marmot and has a powder skirt. The old Marmot had no powder skirt and was cut shorter making it very drafty, especially when arms are raised. The Iceman allows for all kinds of athletic movement without creating a gap at the waist=no drafts= no snow up the back when tomahawking. Powder skirt is also removable for less active pursuits.
#3 Attached Hood; I never liked detachable hoods. They typically create extra bulk around the collar area, and if you detach to avoid this problem there's a good chance the hood will still be in your gear closet when you really need it. Some hooded jackets I've owned didn't provide much neck protection when the hood is down, but the Iceman's collar stands high enough to offer ample protection even when the hood is down. I can't wait to deploy the down insulated hood for chairlift rides when the wind's howling and temps drop into the single digits!
#4 Low bulk styling; Having down insulation shouldn't require resembling the Michelin Man. The Iceman's outer shell is smooth so you won't even know it's a 700 fill down jacket until you look at the inside baffles. I also like that Flylow used dark grey material for the underside of the purple jacket. I don't want to have to worry about stains showing up on the inside of my jacket any more than I do about the outside.
#5 Waterproof shell; There shouldn't be an assumption that just because it's wicked cold that you won't encounter moisture. Snow guns that are blowing water at 10 degrees are a classic example. My old Marmot used Membrain rated at 5,000 waterproofness, which is better than nothing in a down jacket. The Iceman rating is 10,000=more better. Add waterproof zippers and pit zips and I think all the bases are covered.
Final note on fit and more features with Flylow; I'm 5'7", 165lbs, 34" waist, 31" inseam, 41" chest. Flylow's chart would probably put me at a medium which is pretty much spot-on, however, I like a little more relaxed fit so I upsize to large in both pants and jackets. Both the Stash Cargos and Especial pants I own from Flylow have adjustable snap closures on the cuffs plus some burly Velcro, so I can keep them from getting shredded dragging in the snow. The jackets have Velcro adjustable cuffs so I can keep them out of my soup at lunchtime, and the longer sleeves cover almost my entire hand, preventing frostbite when holding a cold one bare-handed in the parking lot après ski. Both pants also have adjustable waists and big belt loops so no worries about plumber butt, unless that's the look you're going for.
Nice job once again from Dan & Co.!
I would like a pair of pants that are made as well as the jacket is. Do you have them and ......... Is the color black out of stock and will it be brought back and when?? Cathey
For a quick and accurate reply, start a CHAT NOW session and talk to a backcountry gear rep.
I felt the warmth right away, as soon as I put it on. Down doesn't leak on the inside like some (more expensive)others. Understated look, more for the strong silent types than the hot doggers. Overall this Ice Man is nice, man.
Shredding Revelstoke in the Flylow Ice Man, Quantum Jacket, and Stash Pants
Picked up this jacket for my trip to revelstoke and the Ice Man did not disappoint. I was originally worried the jacket would be too warm to ski and hike in but thanks to the hue pit-zips, temperature regulation was not a problem. I recommend rocking a t-shirt as your base layer. This is going to allow you to stay warm on the chair but not too warm when hiking with the pit-zips open. After using this jacket in revy, I am a total believer in wearing something insulated, rather then layering on cold days. The jacket kept me toasty on the lift and ridge lines and the breathability plus pit-zips kept me from over heating down in the trees where the humidity and higher temps got me sweating. The Ice Man runs big, so best to drop a size when you purchase.
I purchased this jacket not really knowing what to expect except reading nothin but positive reviews on all of Flylows products. I was looking for a warm, preferably down winter ski jacket. I took the plunge and am not disappointed. I went with the purple and its a pretty nice color. As soon as I put it on, zipped up I could feel the heat. Fit is loose but not Patagonia "boxy" as others have reviewed. Hood is huge, easily fits over a helmut. Nice cuffs which easily cinch down nice. Powder skirt is great. Nice chest and two hand warmer pockets. My only reason for not giving this jacket 5 stars, no big inside pockets. There is a smaller inside pocket but if they put 2 HUGE goggle pockets inside I think this jacket would literally be the creme de la creme. I went back and forth with buying another Gortex jacket but had enough. This jacket fits the bill with its DWR finish. Bottom line, Flylow has made an excellent, WARM, down filled ski/board jacket and I see myself getting many years (I hope) out of it. Nice job.
Are Flylow products (jackets and pants) true to size?
I know the Chemical Jacket would seem to be, at 5' 8'' and 110, a small fits well. Pants on the other hand a baggy, like park rat baggy, but once you have some ski boots on and a layer or two underneath, they don't look too awful.
