The Z Line was our chance to make the best possible gear we could for hunting powder in the most hard-to- reach spots. Some objectives require commitment—you’re going to be out in the mountains all day, and you need gear that won’t let you down when you need it the most. In this gear, you don’t have to be afraid to break a sweat or get caught in a storm. We made gear that can handle that. Sure, it’s ultra-durable and waterproof—just like all of our gear—but with the Z Line, we really set out to focus on breathability and lightweight packability for climbing mountains in search of untouched snow. Plus, it’s got features built just for the backcountry, like chest pockets you can still access while wearing a backpack and high-performing fabrics like eVent and Polartec NeoShell that help regulate your temperature no matter what conditions the winter throws at you.
Revered by ski patrollers and mountain guides, the Lab Coat and Compound Pant is our most versatile, do-everything set-up, built for climbing skintracks and shredding powder. It’s absurdly waterproof. Reliably durable. And surprisingly breathable, thanks to air permeable eVent fabric. Like your favorite pick-up truck, it’s got tons of horsepower and won’t break down on the side of the road.
The Genius Jacket and IQ Pant were dreamed up on a backcountry tour. And that’s exactly what they’re made for—long days, steep skintracks, and deep-winter adventures. The gear is lightweight and stretchy, since we know mobility is important whether you’re throwing kickturns or digging a pit. It’s made with Polartec NeoShell, the lightest, most breathable fabric we could find. This is the kit of choice for Flylow co-founders Greg and Dan.
