    Pure genius.

    The FlyLow Men's Genius Jacket shows off its design brilliance with lightweight construction that doesn't skimp on durability when you're skiing from winter's first storm through spring's sloppy slush. The secret to its ultra-thin, yet highly robust design lies within a 4-way stretch fabric paired with a Polartec NeoShell membrane. This combination keeps you free-flexing and completely dry through the worst conditions of the season, all without succumbing to premature wear when you're searching for turns until May.

    NeoShell is guaranteed waterproof like much of the competition, ensuring you stay nice and dry in deep powder and soaking conditions alike. However, what really stands apart is NeoShell's air permeability, which allows for rapid evaporation of water vapor (e.g. from built-up sweat), all without letting in gusty conditions and oncoming storms. Most noteworthy, this air-permeable membrane facilitates thermo-regulation on demanding ski tours, so you're never hot and sweaty one minute, then freezing-cold the next.

    • Advanced ski jacket for resort days and backcountry tours

    Lightweight for Touring

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size

    I bought this jacket for my boyfriend who was in need of a skiing shell. It is extremely light weight. The downside it does not have as many features (no powder skirt, pit zips, limited pockets) Very packable and would be a great touring shell.
    Boyfriend weighs 190 and 5'11" size large fit great.

    It's what you need from a touring shell

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

    I've had the Genius for a month now and I've put more days in touring this year than at the resort so that is to be considered a preface to my review. So far the jacket has done everything I have expected it to do. Its breathable, packable, lightweight, waterproof/windproof and well made. No frills here although I will say that the zipper layout is not lacking functionality or space. The hood also fits perfectly over my POC backcountry receptor, it's not constricted like some other stormhoods. As far as sizing I tried both the small and medium and the small fit me but I prefer a looser fit for ski jackets so I went with a medium, the sizing is true to size based on the sizing chart but slightly different than the Higgins from what I saw/felt.
    Ask for "Forbes" on chat and I'll gladly share more feedback about my experience with the Genius.

    Light weight tour machine

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

    I bought most of my other flylow pieces based on durability (and the cool local factor). This one is not built like the others but is perfect for what it is meant to be. this is my lightest jacket, no frills you don't need and is perfect for taking a walk in the snow....and shredding down. the fabric seems really breathable and it stuffs super small in my pack if i dont need it.

    Bottom line is this jacket works. I have been down in south america with it for the past month now and have experienced all the conditions.

    Most noticeable, this jacket keeps you dry. My first week I skied a complete white out storm day, I am talking rime ice on any exposed hair after the first run, and stayed totally dry and protected from the wind all day. More impressive was the four days of rain we got in the valleys last week and the sloppy snow on the mountains. Polartec Neoshell keeps water out around the clock, any weather any place.

    The breathabilty, durability, fit and wear of this jacket work at the same caliber as its waterproof abilities. There is not compromise anywhere. I've been cramped in back of pickups, gone on forested hikes, traveled and built and dug in the back country many a time so far and the jacket moves and stretches with you. The easy access pitzips are not stiff or bulky and do not restrict any movement. Simple paneling and design keeps the jacket snug to you form, not boxy or drafty. I exceptionally like the length and waist sinch which keeps the jacket down even when airing cliffs, digging pits or loading luggage in a rainstorm. The thoughtful design goes farther. At first not having to massive pockets for your hands and all the other crap that ends up in there felt odd but this jacket is made to go places and meant to wear well with a pack. Instead of two pockets that would be inaccessible with a pack on the one media pocket sits just below the waist belt of a pack and holds comfortably a phone, ski strap, hand warmers or maybe a snack. Then the two chest zip pockets hold the rest.

    This jacket does not just ski well but it rallies up there with the best lightweight four season jackets out there, alpine, ride, hike and play and the genius will deliver.
