Flylow Higgins
Dek: 
If you’re only going to own one jacket, this is a great bet.

I did it all in this jacket and was I disappointed? No. Mid-winter storm riding, spring corn, wind, rain, sun, grauple…whatever. It is extraordinarily versatile with a thick enough shell to withstand the elements. A three-layered hardshell on the outside, fully taped seams, and a fuzzy lining block out cold, yet its low profile and streamlined design let this jacket—named after the character in Magnum P.I.—fill in where your softshell leaves off. It won’t pack up as small as your softshell though. The hood was a bit tight over my helmet and my XL fit like a large. Otherwise, if you’re only going to own one jacket, this is a great bet.
