The Spyder Tresh is a solid resort jacket with a comfortable fit and light insulation. Our tester normally wears a size medium jacket and thought the size 8 Spyder Tresh fit great. It has an active fit that forms to the body pretty well. The look is flattering and very comfortable. The Spyder Tresh is made with stretch interior fabric that helps to move with you and allow a better fit without compromising mobility. Inside the jacket has 60g of synthetic insulation to keep you warm. This is great for resort riding on moderately cold days, but if you’re the type of person that’s always cold, you may not find the Spyder Tresh warm enough. Our tester runs warm, and found the insulation plenty warm, even with just a thin base layer underneath. If you want a similar jacket that is warmer, check out the Spyder Tresh 100 which has 100g of insulation. The Spyder Tresh is waterproof and breathable, but probably wouldn’t be my go to jacket for really wet days, or backcountry days since it only has Xt.L 10k material. This is still fine for most days at the resort, but there are better waterproof and breathable materials on the market. The Spyder Tresh does have critically taped seams and waterproof zippers to make sure water stays on the outside. We liked the pockets on the Spyder Tresh, but we we’re slightly disappointed that there is no chest pocket. This isn’t a deal breaker by any means, but we do like to have that extra pocket. The powder skirt fit well, and was comfortable. We also really liked the internal stretch cuffs with thumb holes. Overall the Spyder Tresh is a moderately warm and stylish jacket that fits quite well and is very comfortable. It would make a great resort jacket for the casual skier.

Turn On’s: Active fit jackets that fit well around my chest and torso, but don’t restrict movement. Size M Pants that have a bit more room to fit my thighs and big butt but fit well in the waist. That way, not only can I utilize my pockets, I can also ride freely and comfortably on the hill.
Turn Off’s: Size M jackets that are too tight in the shoulders and hips while being boxy in the waist. I really don’t like a tight fit at the hips that rides up and allows snow in my jacket and pants. The jacket should stay in place! Size M Pants that fit too tight in the thigh so I can’t use my pockets but so loose in the waist they fall down and I get snow in my pants.
