    Don't fear the leader.

    Tenuous conditions require a dependable and inventive team leader who refuses to shy away from capricious situations. Insert the Spyder Men's Leader Jacket into the equation; this rugged, trustworthy steed of a jacket stands out from the pack with its resilient technologies and streamlined, dapper design.

    The Leader features Spyder's ultra-thin, yet reliable, waterproof membrane that provides superior protection against facetious weather, while the fully taped seams and interior thumbhole cuffs keep precipitation and bitter cold winds at bay. The incredibly warm and low-profile synthetic 3M Thinsulate insulation delivers furnace-like warmth, and an anti-abrasion Bemis overlay affords safeguarded preservation against unanticipated tumbles and grabby trees. A Spyder Core ventilation system ensures airflow optimal for body temperature regulation. Both the hood and powder skirt are removable for sunny groomer days.

    high quality!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size

    This jacket is extremely high quality. I wear this jacket on very cold days as it is well insulated and very warm. The material is extremely comfortable and moves well. I like this jacket because it does not restrict movement but is still form fitting.

    Awesome Jacket! A few annoyances

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

    This is an awesome jacket, with many pockets, and ski pants integration. I got the Rage/Polar Crosshatch (Red with Grey), and it matches perfectly with my Oakley Mod 5 Red/Grey.

    Regarding the fit, I've worn it with an Underarmour Coldgear longsleeve shirt underneath an Underarmour Infrared 1/4 zip. The fit is snug but not too restrictive. I have an athletic fit, and find the shoulder area a bit on the tight side, but not uncomfortable. The hand cuffs with thumbholes are a little annoying IMO... they bunch up on your wrist if you don't use them. Sleeve length is perfect (I wear size 16.5/33 dress shirts).

    I'm in NYC and when you wear this jacket on the subway/PATH, (as well as the slopes), you'll get a lot of looks :)

    Jacket is worn as winter jacket

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

    This particular jacket was a gift for my son. He thought it looked cool and wanted one. He does not like the cold weather like I do, he just wants to look good.

    I purchased one for myself in 2015. I wear my new Spyder jacket as a lightweight jacket that looks good and when I am doing some serious outside stuff I go back to my old reliable 1990s Spyder Jacket.

    I have been a Spyder Jacket wearer since the 1990s. I wanted a jacket with pockets, lots of pockets. The wallet pocket is not big enough for my wallet, the cell phone pocket is of good size.(didn't need cell phone pocket in 1990s)
    There is a sleeve pocket for chapstick and small items which is nice. The sleeve holders are a good idea, but I am not sure if those will last very long. But when I put on my new, warm mittens, the sleeves do not bunch up and have to be pushed down with my mittened hands.
    The hand pockets are ok.
    I am sad there are no longer vest pockets on the outside where I could stash more junk, like kleenex.

    I used to ski a lot and I loved my Spyder jacket. Since I still live where we get pretty good winters(just had 10 inches of snow) I still wear my Spyder jackets.
    I am old, and the lightweightness of the new jacket does not give me the warm feeling like my 1990s Spyder jacket.(which I still wear)

    Spyder Jackets are well made and durable.

    Would I buy it again? Yes, I would.

    My star rating is a 4 because i have not had the jacket long enough to really know if it is a 5 star. My 1990s Spyder is definitely a 5 star and probably a 6 star.

    Awesome

    This bad boy jacket is awesome, fits very well and the electric blue colour makes my eyes pop. The photos of the product don't do this jacket justice. Thanks Backcountry for supplying Sypder, awesome pricing.

    AMAZING

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XL

    Size: XL
    Me: 6'5", 225 lbs, in-shape.

    The coat fits great! I do not find it too baggy at all and the sleeves are appropriate length especially because of the awesome thumb loops.

    love this coat. feels incredible. has great features. looks amazing. got it for a steal too!

    First glance

    I haven't been able to wear this in the snow yet since it seems that any type of cold weather is on hold..but I do have initial impressions. This is your classic Spyder jacket which gives you everything you want..with a price...but you get the reliability of a very well made coat that won't leave you on your own in the middle of a winter storm. The cut is fantastic and the cuffs are an added bonus that used to only come on the high end Spyder jackets. Plus... if you wanna look cool on the mountain..then you can never go wrong wearing a Spyder ski jacket.
