The Flylow Compound Pant 2.0 is a beast. What does that mean, exactly? First off, the Compound is durable. Reinforced Cordura knees and cuffs mean you won't shred your pants after only a few days hiking or skiing around your local zone. Second, Flylow used Polartec Neoshell, a highly waterproof and the most breathable material available, making the Compound 2.0 perfect for skiers that expect to move a lot - be that touring, building kickers or simply top to bottoming your mountain bell to bell. The pant is so breathable in fact, that there is "passive airflow" that occurs through the fabric. What does that mean to you? It means that no matter how hard you work for those turns, whether shredding in-bounds, out of bounds or somewhere in between, you can count on air moving through the garment to ensure you do not overheat. For the ultimate in keeping you protected from the elements, the Flylow Compound Pant 2.0 should be your go-to style.
Polartec® NeoShell 100% Nylon
High Performance DWR (Durable Water Repellent) Finish All of Flylow's exterior shells and midlayers are treated with a DWR coating, which stops precipitation from soaking into the fibers of a product's face fabric, aiding in quick fabric dry times and helping you stay dry and warm in storms. All of Flylow's technical garments will retain 80% water repellency after 20 washes.
Nylon Oxford Cordura Cuffs | 1,000 Denier This tough canvas-like cloth fabric, which is often used as pack cloth in the military, adds durability, abrasion-resistance, and hardiness to the knees and cuffs of Flylow pants. High-grade Cordura means you'll have to try harder to cut up the bottom of your pants with your ski edges (good luck with that).
Reinforced Internal Knee Box This a technology Flylow is pioneering using a Bemis laminate to give additional strength to a pre-shaped knee box.
Polartec® NeoShell Neoshell is the most breathable and waterproof temperature-regulating three-layer fabric available. Using ultra thin stretched polyurethane, Neoshell is an air permeable waterproof membrane. Polartec allows Flylow to select the appropriate face fabric for their needs, so they can make this ultra technical membrane as tough as they require.
Freeride Fit Not too baggy and not too tight. Just right to give you great range of motion while not sacrificing weight or performance.
Reinforced Articulated Knee Box Pre-shaped, durable knees on your pants for better range of motion.
Cross Flow Venting Open the inner and outer thigh vents and feel the air keeping you dry and cool.
Fully Seam Taped Garments are only considered waterproof if taped. Flylow over builds their gear and outfit their seam-taped gear with 20-millimeter tape that exceeds the industry standards.
Powder Skirt Snap System Allows your powder skirt to snap into the accompanying pant.
YKK Zippers Waterproof, coil and big tooth zippers are used based on each design.
7/8th Length side zippers

Comments about Flylow Compound Pant 2.0:
Solid and good looking like all Flylow's gear. Fits true to size. Unfortunately after one tour the material on the inside of legs had work thru to the waterproof membrane near the boot power straps. Apparently the velcro on the boot straps abraded the inner material on the pants. As this is a touring/ski pant, and costs like rent money, I'd expected better from Flylow.
Comments about Flylow Compound Pant 2.0:
I've been putting the Lab coat, Rudolph down, and Compound pant through tons of days. So far I've been very impressed with the durability of all zippers, pockets, and seams. The only issue I've had is loosing the odd nylon pull from the zippers(not a big deal). The Neoshell has been an unreal performer. From storm days at Kicking Horse, to long touring days in the Highwood Pass, the regulation of body temperature has me totally re-ranking waterproofing within my desired performance hierarchy. I'm fully on board with this breathability feature. Cuffs and Gators on the Compound Pant have been very durable. No noticeable wear and tear yet. I do caution people, the gators are extremely tight. Do not just grab a hold of your pants a rip the gators off your power strap. Actually place your hand on the gator, stretch it, and release it from your boots. Cuffs are totally bomber.
