Spyder Geared Hoody 2016 Review by A Better Ski

The Spyder Geared Hoody is a synthetic down insulated jacket that is moderately warm. It would be a good outer layer on mild and dry days, or fantastic as an insulating underneath a technical shell.

Spyder Geared Hoody Mid-Layer Review

Tester: Matt

Size: M

Matt’s Specs: Sizing Info

Waterproofing and Breathability: The Spyder Geared Hoody has a Spylon DWR coating on the exterior helping to repel moisture, but there isn’t any real waterproof tech. This would be fine as a stand-alone jacket on dry days, or great underneath your technical shell that is more waterproof. The positive of synthetic down is that it will still insulate even when wet.

Warmth: The Spyder Geared Hoody has 40g of a synthetic down insulation. It’s moderately warm and would make a great insulating piece underneath a technical shell.

Fit: The Spyder Geared Hoody has a pretty standard fit with a little more room throughout the entire jacket. I found it true to size, and it’s quite comfortable overall. I think if I wear to use this as a mid-layer mostly, I’d size down to the small so it fits under a technical shell a little better.

Features: The Spyder Geared Hoody has an adjustable contoured hood, adjustable hem, elastic cuffs, and two hand warming pockets. This is pretty standard for an insulating mid-layer jacket, and gives you just enough features to use as your stand-along jacket.

Bottom Line: The Spyder Geared Hoody is great as a moderately warm insulating mid layer, and would also make a great around town jacket for moderately cold winter days.
