Alf Alderson reviews the Flylow Lab Coat, a great backcountry ski jacket aimed at committed riders
flylow labcoat
Best for
Backcountry skiers and boarders looking for a hard wearing, good looking jacket
Overall Score
Flylow's sturdily built Lab Coat is engineered from the multi-award winning Polartec Neoshell, the most breathable, waterproof fabric currently available and ideal for the often demanding task of backcountry skiing, for which it’s designed.

And that design is really well thought out. Features include articulated sleeves and shoulders to maximize fit and range of motion, a removable powder skirt, a helmet-compatible hood, huge pit zips and zipped core venting pockets.

In addition there’s a removable powder skirts, adjustable hem and cuffs, one chest pocket (all outer pockets have waterproof zips) and three zipped internal pockets including two huge stash pockets for all your gear when you choose to ski without a pack.

Add to that good looks and this ski jacket from what is a relatively new US-based company of dedicated backcountry skiers designing kit for dedicated backcountry skiers is well worth checking out.
