BEST TIME OF YOUR LIFE!
Designed in collaboration with CAPOW Guiding of Revelstoke, British Columbia
The result of a twelve-month feedback loop between TREW and CAPOW! Guiding, the Capow Jacket is tailor-made for the demands of backcountry travel and riding. High-visibility colors, purpose-driven pockets, and lightweight, high-stretch laminate fabrics make long days on the skin track or boot pack as comfortable as possible while providing durable, hard-wearing protection against wind and weather.

I have just wrapped up 140 days using the CAPOW jacket. Above is a question from Frank regarding longevity of the lightweight CAPOW fabric. I use my jacket for work (guiding) and also lodge maintenance here and there (moving firewood, snowblowing snow, lifting heavy things in and out of helicopter, etc). We also have the whole CAPOW guiding team in the jackets (that's our team of 20 working full time). We have not had one issue with our jackets. The blue stretchy fabric bends and works with our job, while the reinforced brown shoulders and arms protect with water proofing and durability.
I have never seen a work jacket perform to this standard. The guiding team often wears the jacket on the uptrack too - something no other work jacket would allow us to do.
I stand behind this being the most reliable and best bang for buck jacket on the market.
I own the TREWth Bibs, I'm a fan of TREW's dedication to colors and touring specific outerwear. In comparison to the TREWth, the Capow fabric is crazy light and stretchy. Unlike any shell I've ever owned. It moves and breathes well so well on the skin track. Blocks wind on the way down. Its so light maybe I worry about durability down the line but no problem yet.
I really enjoyed being apart of the design process of this jacket. The biggest change you'll find with this piece from other TREW jackets is the fabric. Combining some stretch with water resistance, this fabric nails it! In BC we get WET and that was a big focus. We want something that will keep us dry when its dumping... but let some air escape while we're workin it on the up track.
The days I spent testing the jacket I wanted to try something that I dont normally do when I'm touring...keep the jacket dawned on the up AND down. I feel that is the ultimate dream. We always hit on the importance of NEVER sweating. SO a traditional heavy gore-tex makes ya feel like you're wearing a garbage bag. I went 4 days early December with a mix of all weather, from heavy dumping snow days to drier and cooler temps. While I regulated my underlayers, the jacket remained as the outside layer all day. To be clear, I normally rock an Up Jacket for the tours up to allow really solid air flow escape, keeping my down jacket in my pack dry just for the down.
I finished the trip STOKED... it worked! Sure I was kept dry when it was dumping, but the big success was how well the jacket let the hot air escape when working hard.
Big props to Brittany (head TREW designer) It's exciting to see her apart of the TREW team... its projects like this jacket as just the start of some big growth with all TREW gear. The company really is on another level this season.
