Spyder Leader Ski Jacket

See all pictures

We haven’t heard of this brand before either, but once we tested the Leader jacket ourselves, we decided it’s only fair to include it in our guide. Its modern cut combined with the perfectly fitting sleeves, pockets, and zippers attracts a wide audience of ski lovers. The integrated AquaGuard technology is designed to keep the moisture away from the jacket thus ensuring your dryness throughout the entire skiing session. The pit zips located under the arms provide you with superb breathability and prevent you from soaking in your own sweat. The hood is not only compatible with the helmet but is also detachable, giving you the ability to take it off when it’s not needed. Every single stylistic detail is backed by the practical features Spyder incorporated in this jacket, which makes it trustworthy in our (and hopefully yours) eyes.
