A perfect jacket for shoulder seasons in the Greater Yellowstone, the Maclean has been my go-to windbreaker this spring. Accompanying me on windy mountain hikes, afternoon skateboard sessions with my dog, and even on morning walks in light rain, it also travels well.

And Flylow’s Intuitive S/G Lite fabric combines wind resistance with durability, making for a strong jacket that can take a beating.

My top five favorite features:

Breathability – The 100 percent polyester shell is not too hot in the sun, and just warm enough in cooler temps.
Packs well – The Maclean hardly taking up space in a daypack, computer bag or stuffed into a fishing vest pocket.
Lightweight – The denier, or thickness of fibers used to weave the fabric, is feather light. With 25D ultra light fabric, you don’t even notice you’re wearing it.
Simple design – really, all you need is a YKK zipper, hood cinches and two pockets.
It’s fresh! – It fits well and looks good. I hear “nice jacket” every time I wear the Maclean. – Ersin Ozer
