Rule the mountain.
Hit the slopes with class and comfort when sporting the Spyder Women's Duchess Jacket. A silky satin lining teams up with Thinsulate insulation in the body and sleeves to add larger-than-life coziness, while fully taped seams and a 20K-rated waterproof membrane fight off the cold and wet precipitation you're sure to encounter at the mountain. Waterproof Aquaguard chest and hand zippered pockets guarantee that your phone, wallet, keys, and snacks stay dry all day long, while the attached powder skirt keep sneaking snow on the outside when you're getting pitted in pow. Zippered underarm vents help you release excess heat at a moment's notice if you overheat, and the adjustable hood, hem, and cuffs let you batten down the hatches if the weather really takes a turn for the worse.

- Q & A
Great jacket, but runs a but small
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: Runs small
- Size Bought: Size 10
- Height: 5'7"
- Weight: 150lbs
To start I forgot that Spyder runs small, so I ordered the 8. Had to return and get the size 10. I'm 5'7" 150. I'm long waisted with a little broader shoulders, not freak-ishly so though, haha, but that makes me leaner up top . What didn't fit was the shoulder area across the back. Also the jacket sits above my hips because I have a longer torso, but I'm used to that.
Now the tech stuff, I love how there are sewn in inner sleeves that wrap the tumbs. It makes it so nice that you never have to think about snow getting in, you just put your gloves on and go. There are plenty of pockets too. The goggle pocket with the lense wipe is really nice to have as well.
I honestly haven't found anything about the jacket itself that I don't like. I do wish I remembered that spyder ran a bit smaller and that way I wouldn't have had to go through the hassle of exchanging, but I really like the coat, so I paitently waited. Also, I purchased this from steep and cheap, but you can't write reviews on their site. Everything is ported over from backcountry.
