The perfect shell

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

This shell is everything I need it to be- Its lightweight without being wimpy, and keeps me dry and warm. I typically layer it with a Patagonia nano-puff on really cold days. I've used it as my everyday to-and-from work jacket for most of the winter now, and I've been skinning in it all season. The hood actually IS big enough to comfortably fit over a helmet, and cinches when it needs to be smaller for just your head.

I'm 5'8", 130 lbs and bought the M. A small fit through the body, but the sleeves were just too short. The Medium, however, still fits great through the middle without being too roomy and the length is much more comfortable.

Great Shell

I really like this shell, perfect for the backcountry. I ordered a small and it fits baggy. I wanted a little room because of layering, but is a litttler longer for my short torso. Although is great for what I am using it for- heavy rain, snow, sleet to keep my inner layers dry!

great ski shell

I love this jacket, that I just ordered for a ski trip out west. It looks great and has a good quality. Overall, I wish it had a snow skirt (it did not say it would) and I find the jacket a bit tight over the hips but that may just be me. I ordered size L, I am 5.8 and weigh 155 lbs. The hood is big enough to fit the helmet underneath and the blue-ish color looks super cute. I am very happy with the purchase.

Well designed

    I bought this as a gift for my girlfriend. It was supposed to be a backcountry shell, but she likes it so much that she has been using it in bounds too. She said it fits well, no bunching or restrictions. but it doesn't look baggy on her either. The specs are solid for a jacket at this price point. Only downside is that it doesn't have a snow skirt.

    Killer Shell!

    This Flylow Vixen Coat is so sick! I ordered the Marlin color, and the color is identical to the photo! It's lightweight + durable! It keeps me dry and warm all day on the mountain! Can't wait to wear it all winter long :)

      Fantastic gear - lightweight, functional

      • Size Bought: Small

      Love this jacket. Don't let the stiffness of the fabric fool you! Once you're on the slopes this thing moves like a dream. It is extremely durable to stand up to weather and trees, but it is not as stiff as the Billie Coat FlyLow jacket I tried. That one is like a coat of armor.
      Pros: lightweight, large hood to fit over a helmet, great 'pit zips for cooling off, gorgeous color, high zip at chin with soft interior for comfort.
      Cons: inner sleeve half-glove is sewn to a place for someone with shorter arms. I am tall (5'8

      A Nice Lilac Shell

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium

      This jacket was ultimately exchanged for something else. It's stylish but the material is relatively stiff, and the way the wrist gators are sewn made them feel a little tight and bulky when worn with a glove. It might have been that a larger size was needed.

      Love my new shell

      Just wore this for the first time, for lift-area skiing. It felt stiff going on, but once it was on, it was (almost) completely comfortable - moved with me, nice soft cuff liners, stayed down, kept me warm in the lift and summit winds. My only comfort quibble is that when I had it completely zipped up, the collar irritated my chin. Only other quibble is that the pit zips were difficult to re-zip by myself once opened. Lilac color is great - different and pleasant. Pockets are useful and well-placed. Hope to use this for the next decade - seems very well-made.

      Best Jacket for Skiing & Snowboarding

      I love this jacket!! I used it last season and can't wait to take it out again. I got the Tropical Red color, which I would describe as more pink than red, but I love it. Keeps me dry, lets me breath, works well with layers (base, mid, and/or lightweight down) or alone. Allows me to move freely on the mountain and it looks great!

      Skiing dry and warm!

      This is my first ski shell that I have purchased and so far I am impressed! I have never owned FlyLow gear before, but had heard great things and wanted to find a shell that I could wear over a puffy or alone on warmer days this season. I purchased this jacket with the Foxy Bibs and am stoked on both! I was a little worried about fitting a lightweight down jacket underneath a Small shell, but I have been able to layer that, a mid layer, and a base layer underneath just fine. I have worn this jacket resort skiing and touring and the pit-zips worked great for temperature control. This jacket does not have a powder skirt, but if you have bibs that is no problem!

      Love this.

      I really love the fit and feel of this shell. It is heavier than what I was riding with last year and that keeps me a lot drier and warmer. So all good things. I got the lilac color, I do think it is a bit of a bolder purple than the color pictured, but better than the picture so thats all good.

      great jacket - comfy, nice looking

      A very well made jacket. The outer and inner pockets are generously sized - spacious enough for a large phone. The inner mesh (non-stretch) pockets are located behind the hand pockets with slightly smaller dimensions. The jacket is cut slightly contoured at the waist and larger in the hips then other jackets by FlyLow. I can stuff the pockets and the jacket still fits over a down layer plus a fleece jacket.
      Tropical red is a nice rose/orange. Very visible but not ski patrol red like the 50 other red jackets on the hill.

      Great for skiing in the PNW

      I bought this jacket because I needed a light-weight shell to layer with. I've used it for a couple of months at Mt. Baker in the sun, rain, and snow. It's light enough to wear in warm weather, but still keeps me warm in 30 degrees with a fleece layered underneath.

      Love it, color off

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: small

      Having received this coat I think it is extremely well made, functional, and yes very flattering and cool, for the price. I really want to keep it but I don't think I will because the color is very different than what I saw on my computer screen, phone and ipad before ordering. It is bright orange. I expected it to be sort of a "cape cod" faded red, perhaps a true red, or even pink. Unfortunately it is very deep orange, the perfect jacket to wear to San Francisco giant's games with the black accents or on Halloween. So sad the color is off.... Wish there were more color options for an exchange. I bought it for March skiing in the Sierras and I think it is a very good shell to layer with if one is skiing hard and trying to keep dry.

      loved this jacket for skiing. fit was perfect even with insulating layer underneath. if its really cold, you'll want to add another layer. electric blue and got lots of compliments. sometimes small is too small for me but fit was perfect.

      Awesome Jacket for Skiing

      This is a great shell. It fits really well and moves really well. Even with a baselayer and fleece underneath to stay warm on extra cold days it didn't feel restrictive, and I ordered my regular size which is a small. The one thing I kinda don't like about the jacket is the wrist gaiters, its just not ideal when you are wearing extra layers under the jacket. But I still would recommend this jacket and am happy I bought it.

      Awesome coat!

      I love this coat! I wasn't sure how warm it'd keep me since it really just seems like a shell. I wore it on a 20-something degree ski day at the resort with a Patagonia R1 Hoody and kept warm all day! On a colder day, I paired it with a lightweight down jacket underneath and it was perfect! I love the fit and color of the deep teal is gorgeous!

      LOVE IT

        I really like FlyLow Gear. Only thing to note is that the gear runs a bit small.
