Our PNW Originals 2L Collection Gets a Nod from Outside Online

By Katherine Donnelly on

Since our inception, we've had our eyes on making some of the most durable and protective gear on the market. Oftentimes, this relentless motivation to create products that last for years to come makes it tough to keep the price accessible; the fabrics that can withstand the abuses that you, your adventures, and Mother Nature throws at 'em can cost a pretty penny, after all.

But with our recent launch of the new PNW Originals Collection, we're bringing that price-point down without skimping on the burly construction and robust waterproofing that you've come to know and love from TREW. And one of the biggest online publications, Outside Online, deemed this new collection to be worthy of their recent gear list for the beginner skier, 'Learning to Ski? Here's the Gear You Need."

What Outside has to say:

"You don’t have to spend $500 to find a versatile, trusted ski jacket. Go for a more affordable two-layer shell (versus a higher-end, pricier three-layer fabric) and you’ll still get something sufficiently waterproof and breathable for stormy days on the mountain. The Trew Gear Jefferson jacket ($299) for men or the Astoria jacket ($299) for women are reasonably priced and will last you season after season. Opt for a ski jacket that you like and you’ll wear it off the slopes, too. The debate is personal when it comes to ski pants or bibs, but bibs are popular among skiers these days for a reason: they’re comfortable, offer more protection on powder days, and come with plenty of pockets for storing all your stuff. Trew’s Jefferson bib ($299) or Astoria bib ($299) complete the look."
