Flylow Roswell 2016 Review by A Better Ski

The Flylow Roswell is a solid insulated resort jacket. It has a stylish look that is functional on the mountain and perfect for the cold winter nights out on the town.

Flylow Roswell Insulated Ski Jacket Review

Tester: Matt

Size: M

Matt’s Specs: Sizing Info

Waterproofing and Breathability: The Flylow Roswell has a 10k/10k waterproof and breathable membrane. This is at the industry standard for waterproofing, and is geared for the skier that will only see a few wet days a season. At 10k it can handle a light wet snow, but the longer and harder the snow falls, the more the jacket is susceptible to leaking through. If you ski in a really wet location, you’ll definitely want better waterproofing tech, but for those of us in drier climates, the Roswell would be just fine.

Warmth: The Flylow Roswell has a solid 80g of synthetic YetiLoft insulation. Like many synthetics, YetiLoft is pretty warm without being bulky. The Roswell doesn’t feel like a big puffy jacket, but it would be warm enough for almost any day I ski during the season. However, you’ll probably still want a decently warm mid-layer underneath for the coldest days of the season, especially if you run cold.

Fit: The Flylow Roswell has a traditional fit that feels true to size. On me, the medium was roomy, without being overly loose. If your my shape, and like the freestyle fit, the medium is just about perfect. Personally, I like a tighter fit, so I’d definitely size down to the small. With the small I would still have enough room, but it would look a bit more form fitting.

Features: The Flylow Roswell is a great resort jacket. It has 5 outside pockets that include two chest pockets, 2 comfortable hand warming pockets, and a small pass pocket. On the inside you also have a media pocket and goggle stash pocket. The hood is contoured, and does a fantastic job keeping my face covered when I put it on. The Roswell has wrist gaiters and a powder skirt to keep snow and cold out of your sleeves and waist. The pit zips are quite large, and do a fantastic job of ventilating the jacket.

Bottom Line: The Flylow Roswell is a very solid resort jacket for those skiers in drier climates. It offers a moderate amount of warmth and tons of features, some of which you don’t typically see in this price range.
