    Boy’s Rival Jacket

    Photo courtesy Greg BurkeIan, from Kennebunk, Maine, is eight years old. Ian comes from a skiing family; visiting Eastern resorts every weekend. Ian put the Spyder outfit to the test. Here’s what Ian and his mom had to say:

    Functionality of Product: The Spyder jacket is very functional, cool, and comfortable, but Ian had trouble with the pants. The suspenders were uncomfortable and he thought the waist of the pants was too high. Given that, the product worked as it should and was easy to use. If we were to suggest improvements, we would say a lower waistline, and perhaps no need for suspenders. Ian also mentioned that it did not have a fleece liner, which he really likes to have in a jacket for warmth and comfort.

    How is it made? Spyder makes excellent clothing with good water proofing and stain resistance. I haven’t had to clean it like I usually do with his stuff. And yes, it’s made so that rough boys can’t destroy it. Ian could get more seasons out of it if he didn’t grow. The pants became tight and with no waist adjustment he was uncomfortable. And Ian is slim too, its not like he has a big gut.. the pants rubbed on his bony rib cage.

    Where did you use it? We ski every weekend. We have been to about 10 different ski resorts in New England and Eastern Canada with this outfit, in all different weather from below 0 to sunny, to freezing rain, and high winds. The outfit was well received by people on the hill. They commented on how well equipped and outfitted Ian was.

    Cool factor: “The design is cool, like the racers wear, but it would be cooler in red. I would like it in red with pants that had a lower waist and no suspenders.”
