THE GOOD
    •    Fully waterproof.
    •    Huge pit zips if things get warm.
    •    Long hemline and freeride fit.
    •    Helmet compatible hood.
    •    Light weight.

THE BAD
    •    Few resort-specific bells and whistles.
    •    A little billowy even for a freeride cut.

THE VERDICT
The Flylow Iceman is totally waterproof, making it very versatile, and is very light for the impressive warmth and weather protection it offers. It’s so warm you can leave a few layers behind, and if things get overheated on a slackcountry hike, the huge pit zips help dump heat in a hurry. It’s durably built and eschews bells and whistles in the name of simplicity and weight savings.
