The Spyder Titan is a unique piece in our test. It has an aggressive, polarizing style. For those for whom the style works, it really works. The rest of the population will be turned off. Functionally the Titan is solid but not flashy. Its technical specs belie strong insulating value while Spyder's DWR coating comes up short in our quick sprinkler testing. Excellent detailing pleased testers. Smooth collar construction and well-thought out features will reward those that make the strong style statement of purchasing a Titan jacket. If you like your ski jacket hemmed shorter than is currently fashionable, the Titan joins just a small number of jackets that will fulfill your desires. If a more contemporary cut is desirable, consider our new Editors' Choice winner, the Arc'teryx Macai.
The Spyder Titan jacket has undergone significant renovations for the 2016/2017 season. Scroll down for details about these changes and a side-by-side comparison with the older version.
