The Flylow Quantum Pro is a great all around jacket perfect for resort or backcountry riding. It’s not insulated, but with its three layers you stay a bit warmer than some of the other shells out there. With 20k waterproofing, and decent breathability the Flylow Quantum Pro offers plenty of protection, even in wet conditions. The outer material feels pretty durable, and yet the jacket can pack down pretty small. Flylow calls it a freeride fit. I found this to be true to size, but a bit more relaxed. The arms are a bit baggy, especially right under the arm pits. I don’t really like the loose fit as much, but it does make the arms very easy to move without any restriction. The fit offers plenty of room for layering if needed, but still feel like I can maneuver pretty well. The Flylow Quantum Pro has all the features you would expect with a higher end ski jacket, including fully taped seems, waterproof zippers, pit vents, adjustable hood, and removable powder skirt. It also has a ton of great pockets. The two chest pockets have a relatively small opening, but are surprisingly deep. The only thing I don’t like is the flap over the chest pockets. It’s great for keeping water out, but it’s not as easy to access the pocket, but really that’s quite trivial compared to the other great features this jacket offers. Overall, the Flylow Quantum Pro is a pretty awesome jacket that is great for in or out-of-bounds skiing. It would be perfect for those who ride in wet conditions a bit more often, but don’t need a ton of insulation. If you’re okay with layering, the jacket can be plenty warm on the cold days. The Flylow Quantum Pro also a great jacket for backcountry travel.

Turn On’s: Active fit jackets that fit well around my chest and torso, but don’t restrict movement. Size S Pants that have a bit more room in my thighs, that way I can actually use my pockets. And of course getting first chair with 12” of fresh powder on the mountain.
Turn Off’s: Size S Jackets that are too tight, and Size M jackets that are too loose in the waist. I really don’t like a loose waist that can allow cold air in, and I don’t like having to cinch down the waist. I also don’t like jackets that ride up when I’m skiing, The jacket should stay in place. Pants that fit too tight in the thigh, and I can’t use my pockets. Crowds in the mountains, and not being able to find a place to park in at the trailhead or ski resort.
