Tough and Classy. Totally Cool. ReTro Chic. The potential answers to 'What does the "TC" in "Flylow Men's TC Vest" stand for?' are nearly endless. Also endless are the situations that this synthetically-insulated and athletic-fitting vest will suit: in-bounds pow-hounding, skin-track layering, bar-scene cruising. Cold days on a Rocky Mountain tour or a Utah hut trip are better with a non-restrictive insulating layer, and good holiday portraits all but require a vest these days, so you'll never have to take it off (plus, chicks love nothing more than a dude wearing a vest with no shirt, if that's more your style).
Not everyone is a vest person. In fact, half of our design team would never wear a vest (that is, of course unless it was a super cool looking vest). So, we made a stylish looking vest, but also made it as technical as you need for a day in the snow. First, we took the fit of a retro work vest (shorter seams from the neck to the shoulder) so that the vest would layer better than those old cheesy race vests. Then we chose an extremely thin and tough nylon material and combined it with Thermolite Micropuff insulation. The result is an incredibly functional, warm, cool looking vest that packs down to the size of a large orange.
Flylow manufactures freeride apparel for the modern skier. Its founders, college friends and Colorado natives Greg Steen and Dan Abrams, noticed that most people they skied with – including themselves – were wearing mountaineering gear. While those clothes were designed for light and fast travel in the mountains, they didn’t necessarily stand up to the rigors of riding in demanding terrain. In response, Flylow developed a line of outerwear that has the mobility of mountaineering gear but the style and fit of freeride apparel. Throughout the creative process, they have focused on balancing simplicity and functionality and have created products that will stand up to the harshest conditions, whether you’re lapping in-bounds steeps, climbing a skin track, hitting a kicker in the park, or drinking a beer on your tailgate at the end of the day.
FlyLow's TC Vest, made from packable micro-puff, is a lightweight, insulating vest with retro style and looks as good on the skin track as it does eating nachos in the après- ski bar. The shoulder seams are shorter for layering and the back has a long tail to keep snow out of your underwear on deep days.
