Yes, the ski bib has existed long before TREW. But no, there was not a bib that was built for "our" kind of skiing and snowboarding. Which, in 2009, we called, "backcountry freeriding." Today, we would probably just call that, "skiing or snowboarding." But we still make the best bib for it.
Our approach to designing a shell for backcountry skiing and snowboarding started with stripping the jacket to it's, well, basic shell, and adding on the key pockets and features that we needed. And then, we made it look radical.
I've been wearing the Cosmic shell since TREW first had samples in 2009. It's been my go-to ever since. It's F#$@ing perfect. Everything that I need and nothing that I don't. Stoked to see these retro colors remind me of the early days lapping Alta with the brightest jackets anyone had ever seen!
