The TREW Women’s Freeride Collection in outerwear with the Stella Jacket and Chariot Bib are for the ladies who are serious about freeride skiing and snowboarding and shredding through the backcountry. TREW’s high-quality freeride outerwear looks fresh and lively and will make you look like you’re ready to take on whatever the mountain gives you.

The Stella Jacket is a technical shell that features TREW’s trademark durability and technical construction with female specific patterning and special attention to shape and detailing. The jacket’s innovative pattern work comes with highly articulated arms, raglan sleeves, and an articulated hem sweep that allows for quick and flowing movement. The Stella is made of private reserve 3L fabric and is 20,000mm waterproof, has a rugged nylon face, a breathable DERMIZAX EV membrane and supple tricot backing. The hood is helmet compatible with 3-point adjustment, and there’s also an ergonomic powder skirt and two internal mesh drop pockets.

The Chariot Bib is a burly freeride bib that was created through collaboration with many talented and passionate women focused on the design and conception. The bib also has TREW’s trademark blend of durability, performance and singular creative style like the Stella Jacket. You get complete protection in the deepest backcountry powder by the upper section of the bib that is designed with curve lines and body articulation. The bib has Superfabric® reinforcement on the instep and cuff. Shoulder straps are adjustable with buckles. Just as the Stella Jacket, the Chariot is made of private reserve 3L fabric, 20,000mm waterproof, and a breathable DERMIZAX EV membrane.

TREW definitely knows how to make the freerider look sharp, and as mentioned above, fresh. The style is just eye-catching and the simple thumbs-up insignia just adds to the fun of the apparel. Layering up was nice and easy as the layers didn’t get bunched up and movement wasn’t limited. The feel of the Stella and Chariot is durable and comfortable and when you put them on, there’s an instant click in your brain that says you’re ready to shred.

The flow of movement in the jacket and bibs was fantastic. Not once did I feel restricted or stuck in any position whether it was in action or in my not-so-great moments, while on the ground. I had no problems keeping dry and no issues of having to constantly adjust the jacket when going from hiking to skiing. Access to pockets on the Stella Jacket was easy even with a backpack on. The attention to detail and features put into the Stella and Chariot were quite evident in the excellent performance, and I did have a few people asking about what the name of the brand was.

TREW definitely made good with the women by coming out with the Stella Jacket and Chariot Bib in the freeride collection. Do you want quality technical wear with versatility and impingement-free movement while taking in all that fresh pow in the backcountry? You can’t go wrong with the TREW Stella and Chariot.

The TREW Stella Jacket and Chariot Bib are available at Black Diamond Retail, Canyon Mountain Sports in Park City, and online at www.trewgear.com.
