Get storm protection, light insulation, and a comfortable fit with FlyLow Gear’s Higgins Jacket. The Higgins blends softshell and hardshell technologies to arrive at technical shell that can handle a day of backcountry steeps just as well as in-bounds charging.

Most softshell jackets cant handle all conditions. But this one can. A real workhorse of a jacket, the FlyLow Higgins is a three-layer blend of hardshell fabric and softshell lining. Meaning it's light and breathable like a softshell, but watertight and tough like a hardshell. Using three-layer Intuitive fabric, seam taping and YKK waterproof zippers, FlyLow have created a truly watertight jacket. They combined our favorite aspects of more traditional soft shell coats with an innovative brushed tricot lining as the third layer to provide addi­tional warmth and wicking capabilities on the inside of the coat. They then incorporated Flylow’s signature jacket features: 15-inch underarm zippers, three point helmet compatible hoods, No-Bulk storm cuffs and backcountry freeride style.

The Flylow Higgins Jacket handles a wide range of temperature and weather changes thanks to the innovative three-layer stretch fabric, a combination of hard and soft shells for the best of both worlds! Durable, ultra waterproof hardshell is combined with stretchy breathable softshell fabric for a bombproof jacket that keeps you warm and dry on cold and damp days but cools you off on spring days.


A workhorse ski shell jacket: the Higgins is made from three-layer Intuitive Fabric material, meant to handle everything from tree scuffs to bear fights to flip-flopping temperatures, the Higgins will keep you warm, dry, and protected from the elements. On sunny spring days, you’ll be thankful for the huge underarm zips and breathable fabric that cool you down.

Got this jacket after looking for a jacket with all the bells and whistles of a $600 jacket for less than $300. I have been using a jacket from Burton's AK line that was $450+ and the Higgins outperforms in every way. Just took a trip to Montana and layered with a patagonia capaline base layer and a nano puff pullover and I was more than warm enough for any condition we encountered. The exterior is bombproof, keeps out every bit of wind and water. Fully taped zippers are a feature rarely seen on jackets in this price range and the fleece lined interior is perfect (especially near the chin where some jackets are rough on the face). I even got molested by the owners of a local ski shop when they saw the jacket- they were stoked to see a Flylow and wanted to know everything about it. My only gripe would be the headphone passthrough coming from the interior pocket- why not make the headphone pass through come from the pocket that is accessible from the outside of the jacket? It would make it much easier to access. Overall I am extremely satisfied with this jacket- I feel like I almost ripped the company off getting a jacket like this for such a good price. Will definitely buy Flylow again.

I picked this up when my compound pants blew a snap and I needed something to integrate with my Magnum BC pants. So far this has been a bombproof soft shell. Hard to believe it is rated at 20K and breathes this good.
The fabric has a nice amount of stretch, and moves well whether you are skinning up or riding the lifts. Since it does not have a powder skirt, windy days can be a little chilly if you don't cinch down the drawcord at the hem.
Like all Flylow jackets, the collar is lined nicely with a fleece like material that does not freeze up on those freezing deep powder days. There is also a nice pass through from the front chest pocket to the inside so that you can run your music, or Outdoor Technology Adapt remote.
I do wish the Flylow Lab Coat fit as well as this does through the sleeves.
I realize that the hand pockets are mesh on the inside to allow for better venting, but they do tend to collect snow on the deep days.
I am 6 1" 190 lbs and a large works great with a base layer plus insulation layer.

In summary, if you like being draped in comfort and style this technical soft shell is for you. Oh, and did I mention it has all the right tech features in a bombproof package. Only downside is that it's not very breathable due to its wind and water resistant design. This makes it a great for all conditions minus maybe high energy output situations such as touring. The light insulation provides the right amount of warmth without causing you to overheat on milder days.
It's the only soft shell jacket I've found that combines minimalist design with free ride fit and a bombproof highly waterproof construction. I'm 6-1 180lbs with relatively long arms and the large fit perfectly.
Love this jacket.

Holy moly, this thing is sick. Took it up Rainier and Adams, flawless layer. Beefy outer layer is super wind and water proof, and the pit zips are nice to dump heat. It's a little big, but it isn't one of those baggy tall things, it's just great to stack layers underneath, very proportional. The hood fits over my helmet super easily too. There are two big mesh pockets on the inside that are nice to stick your skins into when you're making laps. Overall a sick jacket.

I recently purchased 2 fly low jackets.
The higgins in medium
the general down in large.
I am 6ft 160 lbs and both of these products fit great. I tried on the large higgins and would say it runs big, very happy I choose the medium instead. With the medium I can still comfortable fit the large general down puffy inside. Lots of room for layering.
I ran the higgins under the sink to see the water resistance and its unbelievable. Really quality product.

This jacket is waterproof, 3-layer,breathes well and can take a beating. The stretch face fabric with brushed tricot 3rd layer make this fabric perfect to skiing tree lines where you just can't avoid that limb. And for the money you really can find a better all year shell jacket.

I love my Higgins, wore it all last season. Keeps all the water and wind out. Coupled with a base layer is great on even the super cold days. Best part is my jacket still looks new, hasnt snagged or stained.

Overall a great softshell jacket BUT for it's price the one thing missing is armpit vent MESH that would keep out most snow/ice/debris when they are unzipped. Many of Flylow's competitors have this feature and I think it's a serious flaw.

I had been promising myself a change and was glad when this arrived. Simple things done very well. Good fit, good pocket placement and always nice, good value. Even got a few admiring remarks/inquiries about the brand.

Neutral Reviews:

I didnt get a chance to review this jacket after use. Just initial impression. Great colors, pocket placement and features. My only complaint is that for someone with longer arms like me 6'3" I had very little mobility. Jacket rode up to my mid stomach when arms were above my head. Not saying you need to be able to do the YMCA but was just the primary reason I opted for a diff shell.
