Description

The backcountry is your domain.

The backcountry changes all the time, so even though you're out there tour after tour, you're still exploring it each time. The Trew Gear Men's Cosmic Jacket is right there with you to handle whatever the day brings. A Dermizax EV membrane with fully taped seams gives this jacket high waterproof protection when unexpected storms move in, and the jacket remains very breathable so you won't get overheated on the skin up. The shell fabric is surprisingly durable for its light weight so you can move faster without worry of tearing it up.

Articulated arms give you the freedom of movement you need to tuck, twist, and torque off your own jumps you love build in the isolated country. Underarm venting lets out some steam when you work up a sweat. The powder skirt connects to Trew Gear's Eagle pant in order to completely block out the stormiest weather completely. The hood slides over your helmet so you stay safe and covered. And YKK Aquaguard zippers cover the front opening and all external pockets to offer waterproof protection in ways that most jackets don't.

  • Dermizax EV 3-layer membrane, fully taped seams
  • Private Reserve shell fabric
  • Articulated arms with low-profile curved seam construction
  • Underarm vented zippers
  • Powder skirt with three-point attachment to Eagle pants
  • Helmet-compatible hood
  • YKK Aquaguard zippers over front and all pockets

Simple, Durable and Impressive

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

Before I begin raving about this product, it should be noted that I bought my Cosmic used, and I believe it is from the winter of 2012. The differences include fabric treatment, powder skirt, (or lack there of) and zipper type. Additionally, seeing the attention to detail Trew puts into their products, I can't imagine that the Cosmic has gotten any worse.
I am 5' 9'', 120 Lbs and wear a Small. The size is very well proportioned, but may come off as slightly baggy. This is a god send. I can easily fit multiple layers or Capilene (or equivalent) a flannel and a down or Primaloft jacket, and not feel like the love child of the Pillsbury Dough Boy and the Michelin Man.
The membrane on my jacket is Gelanots, (different than what is currently used) but has been quite impressive. Very waterproof, hyper windproof. Straight up burly jacket.
My two complaints about the jacket seem to have been addressed with the newer versions. For one, the new YKK zipper uses a wider tooth, meaning the zipper is more likely to actually work. It is sometimes difficult to start my zip. Also, with a powder skirt, I imagine there are possibly more internal pockets, which would be nice. My jacket only has one skin pocket, which is difficult to fit everything into.
Finally, the hood is a tad small for pulling over my helmet. I used to ski in a Flylow Higgins which had a MASSIVE hood, so this was a bit of a disappointment. The collar though is hardcore to say the least. Nothing is going to mess with you when your wearing that all the way zipped up.
All in all, great product. Just wore it in -25 degree with 45 MPH winds, and was honestly toasty, (with multiple layers of course). Can only imagine it has gotten better.
Great for skiing, winter hiking and inclement weather in general. Great cuffs, seam taping and incredibly durable fabric. Recommended for sure.

Main shell

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I'm not going to lie, I ride for trew. I have had my choice in in companies and there are a few reasons I chose to stick with trew. The cosmic is one if them. I also wear the bellows jacket for inbounds with more pockets. But I put most my days on the cosmic. It is packable, leightwieght, functional, and maintains proper style. The chest pockets double as vents. It is minimal, but right on. It is not super long, if you are looking for a longer fitting jacket go for bellows or pow funk. If you are a looking for a styly, in-bounds, side country, and backcountry (aka do it all) shell. This is it.

How much does a size medium weigh?

Responded on

From the information I have found thus far, I can't seem to locate what size was being used, but I have found a couple websites that reviewed the jacket, and they both reported the same weight (though, oddly, TREW's own website had nothing pertaining to the overall weight whatsoever): relatively moderate 23 oz weight.
See: http://blistergearreview.com/gear-reviews/trew-cosmic-jacket; http://www.tetongravity.com/reviews/T-R-E-W-Cosmic-Jacket-Review-208.htm

Hope this helps

Howdy! the 23oz was for the size XS as worn by Blister Reviewer Julia Van Raalte. The size medium will likely weigh 3-4 oz more.

The fabric in the 13/14 Cosmic is completely different than the fabric in the one reviewed by Blister. All the 13/14 Trew hard shells use their new Private Reserve fabric which is just as durable as the old stuff but much more supple and considerably lighter.
