2012 FlyLow Gear Chemical M Pant


Pros: Great design and fit, very rugged, comfortable

Cons: Can't really think of any...

Well, it’s been a solid two seasons so far with our new FLYLOW GEAR, and the field data from the DSJ Gear Testing Laboratories has been compiled and tabulated.  Let’s talk about  the Chemical Pants.



Evidently this is the product that put the company on the map and we now understand why. The design has changed little over the years and is a testament. These are just superbly designed pants that are built like a tank. One great change was the 13/14 upgrade to the same 3L, 20k/20k Intuitive fabric as the Quantum Jacket. This results in a noticeable increase in waterproofness with a decrease in weight. With this rugged fabric and articulated, reinforced knees, these pants will likely last years, without being heavy and cumbersome. With a slightly baggy fit, these are the lightest feeling, most well-fitting, comfortable pants we’ve worn in years – actually – ever!  We say “baggy”, but not like park rat pants, just enough for total freedom of movement. Add “through” ventilation with thigh vents inside and outside, large zipper pulls, a heavy duty “jeans” style front button (instead of the dreaded snap) and belt loops (missing on many brands) and you have the best ski pants on the market today.  Minor critiques: none

2012 FlyLow Gear Chemical M Pant

A nod to the original Flylow pant design—the durable, ventilating Carhartt-style pants we built our company on—these hardshell pants blend technical fabrics with big-mountain style. One could say that we make the best pants in the business. We started our company to overcome the reality that mountaineering pants are not suited for moving down mountains at high speeds and ski and snowboarding pants are not designed for climbing mountains. The Chemical Pant represents the fourth generation of FlyLow innovation in pant technology. We took our burly articulated knees and cross-flow venting and combined them with Intuitive Fabrics™ 100% Dobby nylon 3-layer materials—custom made for this pant—to decrease weight for climbing and increase durability for ripping down steeps. All that, and it also features a comfortable fit and progressive style. - Three-layer Intuitive Fabric™ - Dobby Nylon: 100% nylon, (water-proof / breathable). - Cordura™ reinforcements on the knees and cuffs - Inner and outer thigh vents with Ykk waterproof zips for climate control and cross-flow ventilation - Three panel articulated knee-box construction - Fully seam-taped, Adjustable waist uses an integrated elastic tab system for the ideal fit - Four hand pockets (2 front and 2 back) for stashing all your goodies - Level 5 Dupont DWR™ (Durable, Water, Repellent). Available in: Black, Brown, Dark Green, Ink
