I wear it more than any other piece of gear!
I always reach for my black spider hoody as a base layer! I’ve accumulated a lot of gear over the years and this is by far my favorite. Perfect fit, great quality, lightweight but warm, and great details like the thumb holes and hood.
I purchased the item for my girlfriend as a gift. She loves the fit and material. The only tiny complaint was the size of the pocket, not quite big enough for a phone, but not a big deal.
I love this base layer, feels great against your skin. Warm and toasty:)
Very Versatile Hoody
I’ve hiked and snowshoed several times in my new NW Alpine hoody and have to say it’s the most versatile base layer I’ve owned in a long time. Lightweight, warm, and long enough to cover my bottom, but loose fitting enough that it doesn’t chafe. Five star hoody!
Already disappointed by the fabric change
Just got the emerald color today and in comparison to the previous Black Spyder hoodies I have, this one isn't as soft and feels much thinner/less warm. The previous ones rapidly became my favorite all-around hoodies- they were amazing for both climbing and belaying on multipitch climbs, mountain runs, and even as a base layer for skiing. Based on the changes in the fabric, I'm not optimistic this will be as great.
