Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

6' 2", 250 lbs, 36 w, 34 inseam, 47
XXL

I've read reviews about the "baggy" fit of Flylow pants/bibs. Maybe for skinny young guys, but for a MW Farm Boy this isn't the case.
I really like the quality and construction, but too small. Had the suspenders maxed out and too tight in the stomach for my liking. I thought the suspenders could have been more substantial as well.

I have some Marker ski pants in XL that fit way better, but I wanted a bib. I'll keeping looking.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I just spent the weekend living in the Flylow Quantum Jacket. I was looking for a basic roomy shell for layering and handling a range of conditions (MN). Went from hockey rinks, to running errands, snowblowing, and shoveling. Didn't get hot, didn't get cold and only wore a heavy wool sweater for insulation. My biggest problem in coats is fit, and I took a chance and ordered the Quantum = homerun. I'm 6'2, 250 lbs , 36" waist with wide shoulders, longer torso, and long arms. The XXL fit for me is perfect and I have plenty of room for one/two layers of insulation. Breathability of the coat was in a word = awesome. A couple features that I really like are two ext. chest pockets and the lower waist pockets are cavernous. One clever design is how the snow skirt ends tuck into triangular pockets and snap in place. The Red coat with tan zippers looks good, received several compliments on the jacket to my surprise. The red is on the darker side compared to what THF or Marmot would use, but it's a nice change from generic safety red most clothing companies use. Not as bright as the Backcountry website shows. Fabric has a nice finish, but is a little on the crunchy side noise wise.

Things I really like=

Long arms- check
Light- check
Long arms- check
Surprisingly warm- check
Long arms- check

Did I mention long arms for us taller guys. The inner sleeve is nice to keep you wamer, but kind of a drag to get on and off and one side had a stich tear when putting on the coat.

Color Deep Blue is anything thing but Deep Blue, how about what it is = Teal is what I'm told. Reminds me of clear water in the pools of a trout stream or water near shore (over sand) on Lake Superior. Not my favorite color, but it's practical for the trout fishing I've been doing lately for sky camo.

Sleeves are a little on the snug side for my arm power, but still comfortable.

Fits well under a shell due to the coat's lack of bulkiness.

Zipper is a little on the wimpy side.

Dries fast.

Washes well.

Nice collar, no chafing on chin.

Longer tail is very nice.

Stitching on body is cool, but I'm getting nervous that I'll get a snag or two on the sleeves/belly.

I love this for 40-60 degree weather.
