This is the second Super Hero that I have owned. The first one was from 2004 and was awesome. It was breathable, water resistant and stretchy. Did I mention it was breathable. My new Super Hero is not very breathable. I use it primarily as a ski touring jacket and had to stop wearing it in public because of it's ability to hold onto odors. The Windstopper fabric does not breathe well in this coat. I eventually went to a local seamstress and had her sew in twelve inch pit zips and things have improved because of having the additional ventilation. The hood fits over a helmet, but I don't like the zip-off aspect of it. The collar is bulky because of this feature. I am 6'2 195 pounds and Large fits well. Extra large was way to big, I had to exchange to a large. This jacket sheds water like a hard shell, and breathes like a plastic bag without proper ventilation.

I bought these for backcountry skiing as a liner for leather work gloves.
These are warm, wicking, and don't smell bad. However they are falling apart. Within the first week the seams were starting to blow out. Then I noticed that the fabric on my right thumb was disintegrating. They are a great glove if you are going to wear them as a liner and not do anything with them when they aren't covered by another glove. I would not recommend them.

The Stoic Merino Crew is a sweet base layer. It is very warm and breathable. Because it is made of Merino Wool it does not stink after more than a week wearing it. The biggest problem is washing and drying it. The washing instructions from Stoic say to wash frequently with special wool wash, which is expensive. I have used powdered detergent and then not dried it, which has worked thus far. I am very happy with this base-layer and bought another one for my mom.
