TREW Swift 2014 Review by The Good Ride

The TREW Swift Soft Shell Jacket makes for a pretty warm snug liner. Trew makes some pretty good outerwear and this is a good mid layer or a nice mild weather stand alone jacket.

Size Tried: Large
James’ Specs:
Height: 5’10”,
Weight: 200 lbs,
Upper Body-:44” Chest, Torso Length 23” (collar bone to pant button), Shoulder Width Approx 22”, Arm Length 19.5” (pit to wrist)
Lower Body: 33” Waist, 42” Hips, 30” Inseam,  24.5” Thigh
Turn On’s: Size L Jackets that fit well around my chest, size M pants that fit well around my thighs so I can get in and out of my pockets, open roads, Surfy Powder Turns, Riding with Friends, new gear and especially my super-hot super smart super funny wife.
Turn Off’s: Size L Jackets that don’t fit well around my chest, super tight Size M Pants that I can’t get up over my thighs, traffic and people who can’t park inside the lines.

This works great for a thin warm layer or on it’s own in dryer conditions. Some prefer fleece lined soft shells and others prefer puffy’s for a mid layer like this. Each have their own strengths and weaknesses. Some love the thin but warm but heavier soft shell and others like the less contoured but generally lighter puffy.  Both do the job well.
