TREW Polar Shift 2014 Review by The Good Ride
The TREW Polar Shift is a light an easily pack-able layer that has a bit of primaloft going on throughout this layer piece. It works well with shells and adds a good bit of warmth. It’s also reversible so you can act like you have 2 jackets.
Size Tried: Large
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.
So there are a lot of puffy type layers that work with many shells but this is one of the lighter more adaptable layers for those that need some but not a lot of insulation. It’s very good for the mobile rider who is in cold backcountry conditions or those that need a little extra warmth to go with a shell on the mountain. Also it’s not bad on it’s own in moderate dry conditions.
