The new FLŌA technical base layer is designed for backcountry skiers and snowboarders. NEW

FLŌA is currently running a kickstarter campaign and is half way to its target.

The campaign ends on December 5th.

The Merino-Poly blend 4-way stretch fabric in a half zip style, is designed to enhance temperature and moisture management.

It has targeted ventilation and mapped compression across a body-fitted top and pants. 

It claims to help increase blood circulation through the arms and legs whilst alleviating muscle fatigue.  

Cooling channels across the chest and lower back and closed hole mesh under the arms and between the legs helps trap air to create a self-ventilating microclimate without altering the body's core temperature.  

It claims to give skiers and snowboarders a garment with advanced wicking properties and a package of technical features that are specifically designed for high-performance, off-piste terrain and backcountry riding on the mountain.

Here at PlanetSKI we are ski touring in Norway in December and look forward to putting the above claims to the test.

The founder of FLŌA, Fergie Miller, is an experienced backcountry skier who competed nationally at junior level and who has overseen the training of over 2000 ski and snowboard instructors.

"The word FLŌA is derived from Old Norse for ‘flow' or ‘river' and it was our inspiration for our brand," said Fergie.

"Anyone who rides off-piste understands the importance of being ‘in the zone' and how having the right mental approach up on the mountain can transform how you perform."

The team working with FLŌA includes Sean Pankhurst who designed World Cup football shirts for national teams in over 8 years at Nike.
