The Spyder Leader Insulated Ski Jacket is one of the best-selling men's ski jackets around. This coat has aggressive styling and technical prowess that's super reliable. If you want to be able to ski in any conditions, the Leader Jacket's 20K waterproof fabric will keep you dry. Thinsulate Extra Warmth insulation provides even more warmth while maintaining that light and low-profile feel that Thinsulate is know for. Waterproof chest and hand pockets keep important gear dry, and internal pockets hold loads of gear. The Leader Jacket also has one of Spyder's coolest features.

"My chest size is 39. I'm a little hesitant about the size. I'm 5'8 160 lbs. Would you say that I should size up to a medium or stay true to the size chart and buy a small size?"

Question by Gonzalo on 12/16/2013 - 4:23 pm
"You are right between sizes so it would be hard to say. This jacket is a relaxed fit so a small should work, however, if you like more room I would recommend the medium."

User Reviews

Average Customer Rating: 5/5 (5 customer reviews)
Nice choice   Rated: 5/5

We bought the Spyder Leader Jacket and the Spyder chambers jacket. While both are quality coats, we kept the Leader because it had a better fit in the shoulders - more room for movement - and the coat wasn't as stiff as the Chamber. Not all people like the wrist gaiters so we will have it cut out and re-sewn. Had to order a second Leader coat to see if that zipper was as hard to get started as the first one. The second one was much easier to get started so we kept the second one.

Great Jacket   Rated: 5/5

Great ski jacket, it's a good fit, runs true to size.

Great Ski Coat - first time use review   Rated: 5/5

I am 5'8"; 160 lbs. 33 waist, size medium is a good fit along with the Dare Athletic Fit pants.The arm length is perfect, longer than most medium jackets, and you have plenty of movement to reach for turns. There are stretch cuffs with thumb holes help keep out the cold. The front chest pocket is easy to get to when needed. No need for the powder skirt, so it stayed snapped in the jacket and out of the way. Plenty of pockets for gear and back pocket is great for that extra storage. This is a warm coat, skiing in 30 degree weather with one layer and a neck gaiter is all that is needed. When it warms up simply open the arm vents, lower the front zipper and allow yourself to cool down. On our last day of skiing the temps moved to mid 40's so I easily removed the hood. The jacket did get warm when the temps increased and the sun come out but the venting allows you to cool down on the lift ride back to the top. And when the wind picked back up at the top, zip everything back up to stay warm. However, the front zipper was a little hard to zip at first, but with use got easier. Seat area is a little tight, but once you get going not noticeable as the fabric moves and stretches as you move. Not an issue at all when getting on or off the lift.

Great Ski Jacket!   Rated: 5/5

This ski jacket is extremely thoughtful, functional as well as stylish.

Worth the money   Rated: 5/5

It's fly, stylish and will keep you dry. Pair it with a flat black Osbe helmet and get bugged in the lift lines. Best of all, it stretches all directions for freedom of movement. And wont get hung up going around the bullwheel because of some lame strap hanging around. Is it worth all that cash? Depends on your desire to be warm, flexible and stylish.
