“Make good gear that works for the fun stuff they (and their friends) like to do.” It’s right on the Flylow website, plain and simple. Good gear that works. It’s what I look for when I shop for things, especially to weather the literal storm. When you spend your days outside enjoying all that winter has to throw at you, it requires some solid threads.
If you know me, you know that I cycle through ski pants seasonally because I have yet to find some that are comfortable AND do the job. Even if I can stand a ski day in them, I am stripping down to leggings the second we are done for the day. My husband, on the other hand, could live in his. The struggle for women’s pants is real man, and not even to be avoided in ski pants. I mean, it’s not even fair that jean shopping AND ski pant shopping are this hard. Rant over.
Thankfully, though, I struck gold this season. After two days on the mountain at both Eldora (warm, spring like conditions) and Winter Park (cold and wet) AND the car rides there and back, plus school pick up, I think I found my holy grail of ski pants. Enter the Flylow Daisy Insulated Pant.
What makes them great? First, the outer fabric is dreamy. It has a bit of stretch to it so it moves with you…you know, kneeling down to adjust your boots, picking up all the things your kids drop, sitting on a chair lift, at lunch or in the car, it’s flexible enough to let you do your thing. Second, they are insulated, but not bulky. They were breathable enough for a pretty warm day on the hill and warm when the snow started falling. Other features? They have vent zippers, a soft adjustable waist, good pockets, wide zipper cuff that fits over boots and really great colors. I am wearing a medium in these pants. For reference, I am 5’5″ and weigh 140lbs. Their size chart says a Medium is a 6-8, but I find them to run a true 8.
Another thing we love here at Snow Happy is the company itself. They are living our mission to protect where we play through sustainable business practices like minimizing plastic packaging, reusing boxes, using post-consumer recycled products in their manufacturing and making high quality products that last, keeping more things out of our landfills.
Don’t let your gear get in the way of you getting out there and enjoying winter. Remember, there is no bad weather, only bad clothes! Be Snow Happy, friends and get out there to find the joy of winter.
