The Capow Jacket is the backcountry touring specialist in the TREW family tree. Built to excel on the way up and the way down, the Capow combines a lightweight, stretchy, and super-breathable fabric on the torso with burlier, abrasion-resistant protective shell fabric on the shoulders, sleeves, and seat.
Working with the Capow guides, we wanted to know how a jacket could make their lives and the experience of their clients better in the backcountry. Their answer? Make it light and breathable enough for the climb up, packable enough to stow easily in a backpack, and waterproof enough to lend dependable protection in a storm. Not so light that it feels delicate, but not so burly that it feels like it’s weighing you down. So, that’s what we made.
