Review by: Chris McNamara ⋅ Founder and Editor-in-Chief, OutdoorGearLab ⋅ July 2, 2012  
The Quantuum is FlyLow's top-tier waterproof breathable ski jacket. It's designed to be your go to all mountain shell for the times when the weather turns for the worse but you keep shredding. The Quantum combines a three layer ePTFE membrane and durable face fabric with all of the features an excellent ski shell should have: two handwarmer pockets, large pit zips, a chest pocket, interior storage, and a super comfy powder skirt. The hood is massive and can be worn over a helmet without feeling restrictive.

Although we haven't done a comprehensive review that compares a dozen or so uninsulated ski shells, our testers believe that the Quantum (and Fly Low in general) offers skiers with high quality gear at rock bottom prices. The Quantum can be found for as little as $250, which for most people will be a far better buy than $600+ Patagonia and Arc'teryx ski shells.

Check out our complete Hardshell Jacket Review to compare all of the models tested. For resort skiing also see our Ski Jacket Review.
