Spyder Leader Jacket - Boys'

Posted

Pros: Well made, looks good, nice features

Cons: Runs small

I bought this jacket (in red) for my son last year.  We first went to the local big box store with the intention of buying it there, but they didn't carry it either in-store or on line.  We tried on various other jackets, including other Spyder boys jackets, for size.  He was 11 years old, about 4' 11", 90-95 pounds, tall and rangy.  The other Spyder jackets in size 12 seemed to have extra room for growth, which I wanted before shelling out $180.00 for a kids jacket.  So I went ahead and ordered it in size 12, confident it was the proper size.  We got the jacket and it fit perfectly--actually, too perfectly, since it was immediately apparent he would outgrow it by this season, which he has (primarily in the sleeve and back).  Of course, he didn't want me to send it back at that point because he liked it so much.  It fits well for an athletic boy, and looks fast, which he likes.  He liked the soft fabric in the collar, and the lining, and all the pockets, including the inside goggle holder and lens-cleaning cloth.  He especially liked the piece with the thumb holes in the end of the sleeve. He also liked the pass-holder pocket in the sleeve (once he found it), and the powder skirt, although he never used it.  He tends to run hot, but didn't complain often about being overly warm.  He probably wore it about 20 times, and it still looks new.  It's a nice jacket, but once again, runs small.  If I had more than one child, I would think twice about spending that much money unless he had a little brother who could wear it later.  This year we are going to try the Obermeyer Mach 7 in size large (12-14) at the same price point, which seems to have the same features, for comparison.  I'll report the results if anyone is interested (or not).

Description:

The Spyder Boys' Leader Jacket packs in 140 grams of ThermaWeb insulation to keep your child from feeling a chill on the slopes. This water-resistant jacket makes ski days more comfortable with a powder skirt, a goggle pocket, and a back pocket for stashing the removable hood. Inner fleece cuffs add extra wrist warmth, and Spyder attached a lens wipe to an internal shock cord so it's always handy to clean fogged goggles.
