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 layering 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.

Ethics Statement: We don’t get paid by the manufacturer to write these reviews.  No one is perfect and we do make money from the “Where To Buy” links below, but this is our best attempt at an honest and objective review from an average riders’ perspective.

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.

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 its own in moderate dry conditions.
