The Spyder Sentinel jacket is your standard ski jacket. We tested a list of some of the best ski and snowboard jackets ever made. Among these, the Sentinel stands out for its failure to make a splash in any category. However, as compared to the hundreds of ski jackets that we did not test, the Sentinel is certainly well-made and comes from a background of deep high-speed ski history. The jacket gives a comfortable and confidence-inspiring first impression but comes up short in our testing in weather resistance and insulating value. Styling is neutral, fit is fine for those with short arms, and the goggle wipe redeems some of the jackets shortcomings.
