I purchased the Brava jacket in Abyss blue. My last Spyder jacket was purchased in 2010 and is too big for me now. The color of this jacket is gorgeous and works nicely with my red hair!!!
The jacket is warm and has great flex and stretch. I love the zips on the sleeves to allow for tucking my gloves in and the built in sleeves with thumb holes. The rib cage vents are a Godsend as I tend to torch up on the slopes. Nice option to be able to remove the hood- admittedly I usually forego the hood, but I have the option for apres ski.
I sized down from my old Spyder jacket (size 10) to an 8 in the Brava- it fits well.
For sizing reference, my chest is 40 inches and in cup size 34DD. The chest in my new Brava fits snug BUT NOT TIGHT. I love the stretch of the Brava! My waist is 28” and the jacket is not tight at all, but looks nice on an hourglass shape.
Hope the sizing references help!
