Five Reasons Why You Should Own the Black Spider Hoody

Purpose Built

We like clothing you don't have to think about. Designed with simplicity and movement in mind, the Black Spider Hoody does the job of regulating warmth and moisture management while you focus on the important things.


The Best Fabric

Polartec Power Grid is the gold standard grid fleece. Its bi-component knit design features geometric constructions. The next-to-skin surface is hydrophilic to absorb sweat vapor and transfer it outside. Then the outer surface disperses moisture for more efficient evaporation.

Tested to the Extreme

From the first ascent of Hispar Sar, to the 2,000th ascent of Stariway to Heaven, the Black Spider Hoody has been there and done that. Proven over years of grueling trips, some of our customers are still wearing the originals from fourteen years ago.

Made in America

With fabric knit at Polartec's mill in Tennessee and being cut and sewn in the US, you can be confident that this garment was manufactured in an environmentally and socially responsible way.


Recognized by Outside Magazine

Outside Magazine called the Black Spider Hoody, "Beautifully Simple" adding it to their list of The Only Winter Clothes You Need.

Since 2010 alpine enthusiasts have been trusting the Black Spider Hoody as an essential layering piece in their clothing system. From the high peaks of the Himalayas, to the backyard ice crags of Colorado, to the glaciers of the North Cascades and beyond, the Black Spider Hoody has been there.

What People are Saying

"This is my third Black Spider Hoody and the latest update to a great product. The new material (quality and feel is great), fit (better overall fit, 6’ comfortably fits M) and most importantly warmth (great top piece for cooler days and mid layer for colder) - makes for a great overall product. Keep up the great work and product - love it.
