It's not rocket science.
You don't need a PhD in experimental physics to understand the basic tenants of a solid ski jacket. Namely, low-bulk warmth and total waterproofing against raging storms and deep powder. Satisfying these needs, the FlyLow Men's Albert Jacket combines the thermal efficiency of PrimaLoft Eco insulation with the solid waterproofing of a 2-layer Intuitive membrane.
Fully sealed construction prevents outside moisture from dampening your ski ambitions during deep days at the resort. PrimaLoft Eco mimics the heat-trapping warmth and compact packability of down without succumbing to soaking-wet conditions. Not only does this recycled, synthetic-based insulation pack incredible warmth considering its weight, but it also facilitates the passage of moisture vapor when you're huffing and puffing up the bootpack. YKK waterproof zippers provide an extra barrier to nature's onslaught of wintry conditions. There's also a helmet-compatible hood for sealing out blustery summit conditions and raging storms.

Flylow Jacket Review
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: small
I have been skiing in this jacket now for 8 days straight and its been plenty warm through snow, wind and a powder day. Like the soft fabric on the inside makes it comfortable even with just a sweatshirt. Its warm but without being too puffy or bulky. The hood is constructed well and fits over my helmet if needed really well. We have had some warmer december days here in CO and the venting system works well and is easy to use. Lots of pockets both inside and outside in the right places and sizes. Running headphones is easy and I stash my phone on the chest pocket. The fit is great and true to size. Powder skirts works well and has the pant integration if you need it. The shell fabric is light and nice and although nothing has happened, I fear it could rip in the trees. Not the burliest fabric...but I still like it.
