More than just a pretty face-fabric.
The Spyder Girls' Glam Jacket has gorgeous asymmetrical details and a rainbow stitching, but this ski jacket is more than just a glamorous coat—it's a slope-slayer ready to take on winter's weather. An Xt.L laminate with taped critical seams helps keep your daughter dry throughout the ski season, and 140g ThermaWeb insulation warms your girl's bones from fall to spring. Plus, Spyder added its proprietary Spylon+ DWR coating to both the shell and lining for added durability and extended longevity that lasts through multiple seasons.
The Glam features a powder skirt to keep snow off your daughter's backside, and it snaps back when snow isn't an issue. She can remove the hood for sunny days at the slopes, and the adjustable cuffs and hem are sure to keep all that wonderful warmth in. Multiple internal pockets give her plenty of organizational options, and the data card pocket holds her MP3 player.

- Q & A
Fits small, hood not helmet compatible
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: Runs small
We upgraded the 10-year-old from an Orage shell to this shell. Went big, jumping from a size 8 to a size 12. The Glam Jacket 12 fits smaller than the Orage 8. And it measures smaller too: arms are shorter, breadth across back is shorter, length is shorter.
And you would think, with Spyder a venerable name in the ski world, that they would make the hood for a kid's ski shell fit over a helmet. But the Glam Jacket hood does not fit over a helmet. Can't figure out how the Spyder engineers thought it would be fine to make a kid's jacket that is not helmet compatible. Maybe for all those kids out there who aren't wearing helmets ... in Kyrgyzstan.
And this jacket is not warm. The insulation is subpar.
Too often, it seems, outdoor gear makers are giving their kid's lines short shrift: Less burly, less insulation, less thought into fit and design. From a gear maker's business perspective, kids lines should be better engineered than the adult lines. Kids are the ones who, if they really like a brand, will buy that brand for another 50-plus years. I can't recommend this jacket.
