Got the Spyder as a replacement for an old Helly Hansen whose zipper imploded at the start of a ski trip in the Rockies. This is a great looking jacket, colors are more muted in person and look even better than the pictures online. Build quality seems as good or better than HH, and I appreciate the GoreTex waterproofing. Most importantly I wore this out on a below-zero degree day here in Minnesota and was plenty warm around town, it will work nicely with the Dare GTX bibs I got last year. Totally recommend!
