Flylow Outerwear

Winter has been wrapping its icy death grip around parts of the country this week. Thanks Polar Vortex (Jerk). Despite wicked cold temperatures and uncomfortable commutes; its ski season and there’s plenty of powder packing the slopes this year. For the record the oversized puffy down jackets are behind us too (Amen). A combination of new fabric technology and fashion forward brands has winter gear looking quite chic. Brands have slimmed down the down adding some insanely great outerwear.

One brand that we love here at The Manual is Flylow outerwear. Cool kids from the Jackson Hole to Aspen are all over it. Their successful fusion of lightweight mountain gear and warm skiwear is landmark. Essentially they do outwear that is three parts warm, ultra-light and durable. Independently owned since they established in 2004, the brand has been well known in the industry for their snug fitting ski pants. Founders Greg Steen and Dan Abrams launched the company back before the housing bust with credit cards and a dream.

It’s no surprise that their jackets are held to the same high standard as the pants. Both feature exceptional fits and venting features that allow temperature regulation while on the move. So, whether you’re traversing the slopes or braving the concrete jungle you’ll be stylish, but most of all WARM.

Our favorite Flylow pick at The Manual is the men’s Lab Coat and Compound Pant. Flylow sells both in a variety of color combinations. They will run you about $500 a piece. A little pricey … but they are super durable and easy to wear. You can also find a variety of great jackets under $500 at their online store or at listed retailers.
