The northern Rockies can get frigid, and Flylow’s Ice Man down
jacket is made for serious mountain weather. The 700-fill goose
down is cozy, and the fully-taped, two-layer waterproof shell
doesn’t let in an ounce of water, even while I interviewed snowmakers
on-scene. Tack on a removable powder skirt and massive
underarm vents, and the Ice Man is surprisingly versatile.

Flylow’s website claims the jacket is as tough as Val Kilmer in Top Gun. I
agree. It can be my wingman anytime. Available in black, navy and
tarmac.
