2012 FlyLow Gear Quantum Jacket

Posted

Pros: Extremely warm, breathable, light, and durable

Cons: None really

Flylow Quantum JacketThe 2013/14 Quantum Jacket is just a superb piece and a nice step up from the Higgins. Most notable is its incredible lightness while maintaining every bit of warmth and protection.  You hardly notice you have this jacket on, and while it is also a 3L, 20k/20k fabric, it is an upgraded Dobby Intuitive and has noticeably superior breathability. It also addresses our gripe with the Higgins by having two chest pockets and adds a nice removable powder skirt. And new for the 14/15 season is an additional wrist pocket which is great to get to your emergency whistle when stuck in a tree well!

2012 FlyLow Gear Quantum Jacket
Description:

Flylow’s most waterproof and breathable jacket to date. This everyday hardshell has a removable powder skirt and tougher nylon material than ever before. Plus, it packs down to the size of a cantaloupe. We believe that when the people speak, we should listen. We got a lot of positive feedback on last years Quantum Jacket and have applied it all to our newest version. We upgraded our old design to include: new fabric (super tough nylon shell fabric with a 20K/20K waterproof breathable barrier), a powder skirt with lycra connection for flexibility and comfort while riding (this skirt is not only removable, but can also be stowed while zipped in to stay of your way), the sleeves are ‘set-in’ for a good fit that allows for layering without bunching up. Add some nice colors and we know we are one step closer to the perfect shell. The lightweight tough fabric blended with the flexibility to remove the powder skirt make this jacket extremely versatile for deep winter ascents, spring tours and summer storms.Check out this video short for some extra intel. Quantum Jacket – $2 from every Quantum jacket sold here will go to the Flyin’ Ryan Hawks Foundation. Ryan Hawks was one of us: a pro skier, a powder-lover, an all-around great guy. When he passed away last year his loss was felt throughout the ski community.
