Flylow Piper Jacket - Insulated (For Women)
Closeouts. With a low-bulk design that fits comfortably under a shell, Flylow's Piper jacket is an outstanding technical mid layer with 60g YetiLoft synthetic insulation. Stylish stitching keeps you looking great if you choose to wear it as a stand-alone outer layer.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by The Petite Pear from Virginia on Saturday, January 23, 2016I was so hoping this nice lightweight jacket would fit me, but no luck. The Medium fits me on top but is too long in the hip to accommodate my petite pear shape. I'm 60" tall and weigh about 120. If I were 3 or 4 inches taller it would be a good fit.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by voyageurs47 from Austin, TX on Tuesday, December 15, 2015I initially ordered this jacket for me, but the jacket runs a small. I decided to keep it for my daughter and she loves it. She's been wearing it every single day. It is perfect for our Texas weather. I ordered small in burgundy and it has a very pretty light pink interior lining. For reference, I am 5' 2" and 120 lbs and this ran small. My daughter is under 100 lbs and 5' tall. She can only wear it with a light sweater and/or shirt under or it'll be too tight. Go a size up.
Reviewed by Red from Pac NW on Friday, December 12, 2014Love the color of this jacket. It is a warm rusty brown, a mix between mahogany and a coffee brown. I was concerned about the breast pockets but they fit slightly above the chest for a more flattering fit...you ladies know how awkward it can feel when a pocket or button is right at nipple level!
If using for active outdoors this is a good light to mid-weight layer; have not used it as a ski layer yet but plan to. It feels very lightweight but I wore it outside in a chilly rainstorm to test warmth and water resistance and was pleased with both (though I don't plan to use it as a rain jacket, I do expect some water repellency).
The jacket is a slim fit; I always wear a size 2-4 and am just shy of 5' 5", 120lbs. I ordered a S and am also ordering the M to see if I like the fit better. I want something that can fit a lightweight fleece and possibly a second shirt underneath since I tend to run cold. The only complaint about actual fit may be that the sleeves are a little short, but I also have long arms for my height. Oh and for those of you who are picky about this like I am, the collar of the coat is soft but able to stand up on its own; the interior of the coat is a soft blush pink, not too girly but a beautiful contrast to the warm brown. The inside collar is also the mahogany/brown color and overall it is very soft and cozy. I just wish the sleeves were a tad longer hence the size M is on order to compare. This is why I've given it 4 not 5 stars and will adjust the rating depending on final fit.
I had purchased a Patagonia hardshell and poly-fill midweight layer but it was overall too long (height, sleeves, hood) and in comparing the two coats side by side (I also bought the Flylow Masala hardshell) I think the quality appears equal to Patagonia which is saying a LOT.
