Imagine that, a pair of fully waterproof bibs for under $300... Our goal was to make some bibs the flylow way: tough as nails, high performance, good looking and without breaking the bank. The new smokejumpers are made with a 320D Nylon 2 layer fabric, which means they are built with a moisture wicking mesh lining. In the end you get a stormproof bib that cam do most things on snow. They may be a bit heavy for touring, but for ripping the resort and boots packs under 45 min these things are perfect.

The Lab Coat is the best all around jacket I have worn. It is bombproof tough, decently packable and super breathable for a 100% waterproof layer. I am a tweener large/medium so I sized up to a large and it is perfect for winter layering.

The new Jam/Black color pops really nice but is subtle enough to be classy.

I work at flylow, so i used it for a good amount of time last winter.

This snap up does it all for me this spring. I have had a good sweat in it and it dries fast, which is nice. The fabric is really nice feeling. I dig the snaps up the front and the off colored stitching. Fits true to size!

Okay, so I typically only used these things in my mtb pack for nasty weather, but this one is cool looking and I found it super functional in my boat too (wake surfing rig that is). You see, just like when biking in this jacekt, I am not looking for waterproof protection since in the summer time and while exerting myself I am sweating, it is the wind break that keeps me warm, wet, but warm. I would be wet from sweat anyway. then, when you finally stop and get of the weather the Maclean dries super fast. So, the technology is not revolutionary, and oh yeah, did I mention it looks good too!

In all honesty, I am wearing these shorts right now. I use them as a mountain bike over short, pull the fine italian chammy from underneath and can wear them to dinner or just for life, after I jump in the river of course. The idea behind the shorts is that we just needed a straight forward short with some strech, quick drying fabric and mesh pockets and we could just have one short to do it all in the summer. Here you go. gusseted crotch is nice for climbing. Running works too:)

I have been using this coat all this fall in the Colorado backcountry. The fabric is tough and has taken some tree bashing and rock rubbing really well. The Neoshell fabric is super stormproof and remarkably breathable.

Fit is true to size and not too long.

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 would never write this, but the female staffers at SKI and Skiing Magazine did, so I am just passing along the good news. According to the Gear of the Year awards we just won from SKI Mag:
"The verdict is in. And it’s unanimous. Our
female staffers agree that the Flylow Chione
Pant has the best-fitting butt they’ve ever
seen in skiwear." -SKI Magazine

These pants are also uber water proof and stretchy to boot.

We have been designing and making clothing for 7 years now and this is the toughest, lightest and best 3L shell we have made. I am 5'11" and 180lbs and the LG fit great. Plenty roomy for layering with a puffy on a cold wet day and not too big for touring with just a base layer. The huge vents come in handy on the touring days and toe powder skirt zips in and out depending on depth...

We have been building up to making these baker bibs for a while now. We took everything we have learned making tough, light, good looking clothes and put it into these bibs. The sides of the bibs come up 4" past a regular waist. The vents extend down just below you knees so you can slide them aside if you have a mid mountain #2. The soft shell on the back panel will keep the snow out but will handle sweat on the small of you back perfectly. enjoy.

This jacket has been a staple for us at flylow for a few years now.
for 2011, the fit stayed the same from last year but we revamped the fabric to make it more breathable. The waterproof/breathability rating it 10k/10k...that combined with the brushed tricot make this layer great for drawing moisture away from you while adding a little extra warmth.

We also made the fabric 100% polyester, this make the color last long, the fabric a bit tough... but it also means it does not stretch quite as much (10% less). We thought it was a good more to make the jacket better all around, in bounds and out of bounds.

I just got out of the Wallowas where I tried these binders out for the first time. I am into them. They are lighter then fritchis, ski better then them too. The only draw back is the inability to shift them into tour mode without taking them off. Which for me is a small price to pay. I would rather have a binding that skis better, lasts longer and tours as well, then one that switches to tour mode better. And really, that is the only thing fritchis have over these tour bindings.

Compared to dynafit they are not as light. but, for $400 you get a touring binding here as opposed to having to buy new boots as well and to be restricted to backcountry use with my skis.

So, basically, these tour 12's do it all, well.

I have my routine for getting them back into ski mode: slap the binding down to get the snow and ice off, rotate the ski so the tail is away from your body, hold the end of the binding to the ski with one hand and pull the cool old tire toggle up and they slide right in. And for the record, it is this sliding mechanism that seems to ensure they ski so well.

just my opinion.
