Nothing out of the ordinary.
True, the Marmot Men's Super Mica Jacket does feature pro-level waterproofing, all-universe breathability, and enough technical features to confuse a space shuttle engineer, but that's no reason to drool on yourself. Sure, the NanoPro MemBrain laminate is waterproof, the seams are fully taped, and the zippers are highly water resistant, but you still want keep all that saliva in your mouth, hotshot.
Keeping your cool when you're this excited is hard work, but the Super Mica does have underarm vents to help you stay cool when you get all hot and bothered. The pockets are harness- and pack-compatible, so you can make sure you have snacks on hand, the ergonomic Angel-Wing movement helps you hike and climb in serious comfort, and the Duralite reinforcements prevent tears in high-wear areas, and the hook-and-loop asymmetric cuffs don't ride up Other than all that, the Super Mica doesn't really have much going for it.

The jacket hasn't failed my yet. It's totally waterproof thus far. I use it all around as a skiing top layer to a rain shell to a wind breaker or I just throw it in my backpack to have. It's a good weight and reliable.
I did have a few problems however. The wrists are narrow. Like REALLY narrow, I don't have big forearms. One of the Velcro pieces for a wrist strap has started falling apart, just fraying at the ends. And this last one is a personal thing but I wish it had a chest pocket.
I really like the color I got. I feel like the bright neon colors are nicely visible while biking, running walking through the city and you're definitely easy to find on the mountain.
It's functional and reliable, but for the price I wish that I'd bought something without those problems.
