Few hoodies combine style and substance as effectively as M’s Spyfire. When you want to look good and be protected from the elements, it’s an excellent choice and well worth the asking price.
For starters, it’s made with a unique blend of 88% nylon and 12% spandex. The Spyfire Hoody is made with lightweight but tear-resistant body fabric with DWR, or durable water repellent, coating. As such, it’s great for rain or snow protection.
It’s also great for insulation, given its intended use. It utilizes 105 g of 100% goose down feathers and 800-fill power; in other words, it’ll provide decent installation without expanding too much in your backpack or weighing too much overall. In total, the entire jacket only weighs 454 g.
Cleaning the Hoody is also pretty easy, as it’s compatible with regular machine wash cold cycles run on delicate.
The Spyfire Hoody is built for durability and comfort from the ground up. It includes a zippered garage overlay to increase the piece’s toughness, plus a series of reverse coil zippers at the hand, chest, and left sleeve.
We also really like how the Hoody facilitates personal comfort. You’ll benefit from the elastic cuffs and hood opening. You can even adjust the hood via cords located right beneath the chin, allowing you to open things up or tighten things down if you want to be colder or warmer, respectively.
The Hoody does a great job of protecting you from the cold. It features strategically placed baffles at the front and back of the Hoody to improve core warmth protection, plus smaller baffles at the sides and on your sleeves. As a result, you’ll be able to stay warm without feeling too bulky.
Even better, another overlay on the front of the jacket and on the sleeves provide you with more cold protection. The underarm gussets are specially knitted to improve breathability and flexibility.
All in all, M’s Spyfire Hoody does a great job of balancing protection and comfort. If you want a garment that can keep you warm without making you feel smothered, this is a top pick.
