Tear the roof off the sucker. 

Some people want style at the expense of substance. Others want pure function without a single aesthetic consideration. We want the funk. The PowFunk, to be more specific.

The PowFunk Jacket is just a little extra, and that’s what makes it so crucial in the clutch. It sits a little longer in the torso, has a few more pockets for snacks, and cares a little bit less about what technical ski and snowboard shells look like after they’re done checking all the nerd boxes. But there’s much more to the PowFunk than a bunch of posturing and spray. 

An overachieving slacker, the PowFunk lays a foundation with our stormproof PNW3L three-ply fabric and fully taped construction, then builds on it with enough pockets, features, and ergonomic patterning to deliver the free-range function that most resort jackets can only dream about. What more can you ask for? Well, you can start by asking for the PowFunk. Then, ask for the world on a silver platter...

Bad Fit

The arm length is just a hair too long.
The fit around the waist is too tight. I expect going up one size for the waist measurement would be just about good enough. However, then the arm length would be even longer, which would be super annoying.
I would expect the waist measurement to be the inside button seal, not the outer Jacket fit. There is -so- little room to bend in this jacket.

Zipper Needs Improvement

I feel this review is necessary since had I known some issues I had experienced I would have steered clear of this jacket.

The zipper on this jacket is the absolute worst - it broke on me not once, but twice after Trew sent me a replacement. I figured the first time was a fluke but the second time I simply leaned over to pick up my 2 year old and the bottom ripped apart. Luckily I was not in the backcountry or somewhere where a functional zipper may have been a bit more important.

However....I will say that Trew did make it right by offering a replacement with the Cosmic jacket which has a much burlier zipper. I'm hopeful this jacket will give me many years of good use.

It is frustrating since besides the zipper the powfunk is an awesome jacket. I guess I've been so used to never having zipper issues that I took that for granted. Hopefully the zipper issue will be addressed.

We feel you here, and since you purchased your Powfunk (and got your warranty replacement) we have updated the zipper and overall zipper design to be much burlier! Happy shredding, and enjoy that new Cosmic :)

Durable, Functional, Stylish - All made to last

6'4" - 190lbs - Size Large

I wore my 2013 PowFunk all winter long for 6 winters (40 - 100+ days each season, mostly resort but some backcountry) until the zipper quit at the beginning of this season and I decided to buy the new version. 2013 version is still fully functional with the exception of a blown zipper - will probably get it fixed and keep using it thanks to bomber construction and timeless design.

Just received the new version and skied 2 full days in it and it feels like home! New PNW 3L fabric feels and looks great, pockets are super well thought out and the storm collar on this jacket is hands down the best I've seen (easy to zip up, amazing coverage, accommodates neck-warmer, helmet, etc.). I live and ski predominantly in Lake Louise, where it is super cold most of the time so I don't usually get a chance to properly assess the waterproof rating of any fabric until later in the season, but after skiing a storm the last couple of days and I can tell it is going to get the job done without any issue. Pair this baby with a Trewth Bib and layer properly and this jacket keeps the wind out and the warmth in - even just as a shell.

Fit notes: I am tall and skinny (noted above) and the large fits me flawlessly. Enough room for layers, sleeve length is enough to never ride up and the bottom of the jacket just covers my butt. I would not say it fits me "baggy", it fits me properly with full range of motion. If you have wide shoulders and/or are wider around the middle, I would definitely consider the XL. If you are similar in size to me and like it to look baggy, consider going XL as well.

All in all - incredible gear by these guys. I have my girlfriend and most of my friends in this gear now - I've seen a lot of it in action (Trewth Bib, Chariot Bib, Capow Bib, Cosmic Jacket, Hot Toddy Jacket) and the feedback is all 5 stars. First class customer service from the TREW team is the icing on the cake. These guys consistently deliver the goods!

Thanks, TREW!
