If there is one thing Newfoundland is famous for, it has to be the weather and the dramatic shifts you can experience in mere minutes. We have an old saying here on the island and that is, if you don’t like the weather, wait 5 minutes. The bone chilling wind and frigid temperatures can make any day out a miserable one, unless you are suited up and ready to do battle with Mother Nature. As with any physical outdoor activity, the layering of clothing is paramount to be comfortable, dry and warm.
I introduce you to one of my favorite pieces of gear, the Revy Jacket. Motorfist is known for quality and they certainly didn’t hold out on this jacket. With 35D Lightweight, down proof, ripstop fabric this technical layer is ready for whatever you can throw at it. Single Sided, Brushed fleece side panels keep the bulk to a minimum while retaining heat and upping the comfort level. Super soft Lycra wrist cuffs trap the heat and keep the sleeves planted at all times, especially when worn as a layer and when needed the most.
The late arrival of winter this season didn’t stop me from hauling this jacket out of the closet. Not only has it become a sled necessity, it has become my go to jacket for daily use. The Revy keeps me warm and stylish while on an extended guide trip in the backcountry, on deep blower pow days or trips to the grocery store for an extra carton of milk. The Revy has a new seat atop my “must have” gear list. Do yourself a favor and take a ride in REVY and if you find yourself in Revelstoke, well, I’m sure that will do too!
