Question by J.Yves on 12/26/2011 - 3:26 pm
"This jacket is going to be much lighter than the Spyder Leader Insulated Ski Jacket. It has 60g of Primaloft insulation which is very light and very warm. It also has a higher breathability rating which will allow more moisture to leave your body space, in turn keeping you warmer. The fabric also has much more stretch in this jacket. Not only is the exterior going to move with you, but the interior lining is also made from a stretch fabric so you will be able to have a larger range of movement in this jacket!"

"what are the differences between the Pinnacle, Orbiter, Revelstoke and Bromont. I see they range from $600 for the Orbiter and Revelstoke up to $900 for the Pinnacle. $300 difference must mean something, but when looking at the specs I cannot figure it out."

"The Spyder Pinnacle jacket has PrimaLoftÂ® ONE. It is the highest performing insulation on the market for warmth, water resistance, softness and compressibility. PrimaLoftÂ® ONE is an ultra-fine microfiber insulation that is as warm, soft and lightweight, and is warmer wet or dry than all other insulations. The Spyder Bromont has the second best insulation. It has PrimaloftÂ® Sport insulation, however this jacket does not have a Recco System in it. The Spyder Orbiter does have a Recco System, however the insulation is not as warm as the Bromont. This jacket has PrimaLoftÂ® ECO insulation which uses post-consumer recycled material to create a high loft, thermally efficient, earth-friendly insulation. "

"I have a Spyder jacket in the large size and it is a little big on me - I wear a size 42 jacket. I have tried on a medium Pinnacle and it feels snug. Which size do you think I should go with when you consider layering."

"That would really be personal preference. If you like things to be more fitted the go with the smaller size, things a bit more relaxed then go with the larger size. I would recommend going with the larger size, because you never know how much layering you might need!"

"As I understand it, a waterproof coating is applied to the material to provide waterproofing and allow breathability. Does the coating wear out/deteriorate? How long is it expected to last (ballpark figure is fine)? Is this similar to Goretex? Thanks,"

Question by Norm on 7/11/2012 - 8:08 am
"Actually, the fabric of this jacket is lined with a material that keeps the outside precipitation off your skin while also allowing your inner perspiration to escape, therefore keeping you nice a dry. This is similar to GORE-TEXÂ® except that GORE-TEXÂ® does have qualities about it that differ greatly from other generic waterproof fabrics. The DWR coating that is used on many jackets, including various GORE-TEXÂ® products, is an extra shield of waterproof protection. While the inside waterproof liner of this jacket prevents water from getting through to your innards, water can seep through the outside fabric and will sit on the outside of that liner, making you feel cold and wet (even though you are totally dry). That DWR coating makes the water bead up and roll right off of the fabric so that it can't seep into it and sit on that inner liner. Your jackets should ALWAYS be laundered at least once per season (if not more) according to the instructions on the label. Doing this, prolongs AND restores the DWR coating, making it last years (ball park) before you may need to replenish that coating. I hope this all made sense to you. Feel free to call or email me for more info about waterproofing, breathability or DWR!"
