Gear Review: Flylow Betty Down Jacket

Flylow Betty Down Jacket

You might think a down jacket is a down jacket. It is warm, but just how warm is it, and is it really comfortable? I have found that some jackets are itchy and just don’t fit right. Some down jackets make you look like a marshmallow. Others just don’t really keep you warm enough to make them worth wearing. The Flylow Betty down jacket is nothing like these.

The Betty is an all-purpose down jacket that is light and packable. This jacket has been my go to jacket for the past few months. I tend to gravitate to anything that is comfortable and useful, this is a great jacket for both. With the 700-fill European goose down, it is extra warm and will keep you warm even in the coldest wind.

There are several great, yet simple features on this jacket. There is a hood that has a draw string for those windy days to keep your head and ears warm. It has great zipper pockets to keep your hands warm, and there are pit zips, for those times you are both warm and cold and you just need a little more ventilation. There are also great style features that make the jacket both slimming and comfortable. “The Betty Down, it's not a huge bulky down jacket and it fits like a hoody, so you can bring it everywhere.”

While not waterproof, you can wear this in the worst of winter storms under a great shell and not feel like a puff ball. I can guarantee you will be warm and comfortable. It really does feel like you are just wearing your favorite hoodie, but it’s so much better. Thank you Flylow for another great product! With the great black and pink coloring, this is the perfect winter down jacket!
