TREW Bellows Jacket Review

Tried and true since 2008, The Bellows has proven to be a durable jacket capable of discretely holding at least a six-pack of beer.

The thick, waterproof breathable fabric probably won’t rip on trees as you franticly fly through the woods with your homies on that first pow-day run. The hood is big enough to fit a helmet, there’s a media pocket, you’ve got pit zips, a powder skirt – everything a $480 jacket is supposed to have these days.

The fit and durability sets this jacket apart from others – and this goes for most TREW gear. I’ve been sporting the TREWth bib and PowFunk Jacket for three years and never had an issue, so I’ve got faith in The Bellows and this brand. I like how their outerwear is slightly loose fitting. At 5’10” and 185 lbs, a large works, but rocking an XL is not out of the question.  While some brands have that stiff, mountaineer vibe, TREW gear is designed for freeriding good times.

Sure, some of TREW’s color ways are unconventional this year. For instance, I would never be attracted to the olive green color of this coat just looking at it on the Internet, but rocking it right here in person, it’s cool and different. Of course, there’s always “black.” Anyway, If you were to sport this coat in this color with some grey or black pants, you would be straight-up crushing it, G. With a logo that pretty much is the Facebook “thumbs up,” rocking this jacket or any TREW gear pretty much means you’re down for whatever and ready to ride. As one of TREW’s flagship jackets, The Bellows helped define the brand and give it credibility.

It’s true: skiing is partying. TREW knows this. The Bellows lets you ball.
