Tom Runciewrote a review of Eider Spencer Jacket - Men's on October 23, 2014
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
I have been very impressed with the quality and functionality of this jacket for two seasons now. I wear it for resort skiing and a lot of backcountry skiing. I've found it breathable enough to wear while skinning on all but the hottest of spring days. On cold days I need to layer well underneath, as it is just a shell. My first impression was that the zippers might be undersized and vulnerable, but this jacket has seen well over 150 days of use and hasn't shown any signs of weakness. It has even stood up to the abuses of snowmobile access skiing, which is pretty rough on clothing. I found the fit to be pretty average for a medium. The arm holes are a bit small for wearing bulky layers underneath, at least on my frame, but the asymmetrical cuffs work great over ski gloves. The hood fits over a helmet pretty well, and moves well enough to ski with the hood up, as long as the skiing isn't super technical. Overall an excellent jacket that offers great breathability and durability without sacrificing fit or style.
