    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: medium
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 170lbs

    Got this jacket in size medium as a gift. Im 5'10" fits perfectly. Had plans on taking it skiing out west, but after wearing it three times for a grand total of about an hour I thought better. After a few trips to the grocery store and coffee shop, the seams are tearing away and the insulation is falling out. Never used for any sort of physical activity. I was just gauging how warm a jacket it really was. Nevertheless it is quite warm, but not worth the money. It is a true throw away jacket in every sense. Wont last a week in easy conditions. Will return for refund.

    Love this jacket

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 160lbs

    I have had this jacket for over two years now and as soon as winter comes I break it out. I ski in it throughout winter and typically wear it as my outer layer. Its very water resistant and extremely warm. But yes, it does run quite large, with that in mind just order a smaller size than typical. Granted I like my jackets larger for layering purposes, I ordered a large and am 5'11 160 pounds. A medium would be a much better fit, but this works for me. It is a pretty durable outside as well, I have a shell I will wear over if I need, but this jacket does the trick for just wearing around town or on the mountain. It is a perfect jacket for my use, and I have used it to its fullest extent and its still not breaking down whatsoever. I trust Mountain Hardwear and ever jacket I have purchased from them has been good quality, this one does not disappoint.

    Awesome jacket

    Sizing is too large, enough to subtract a star. I tried a small in in a local store, it damn near fit me! I wear Large and can make an xl work. I was shocked. A medium fits great. As long as you get the size that fits, it's a solid piece. I love it. Durable enough material outside, insulated hood that fits well with the built in visor. It's a solid jacket no doubt. Ive been breaking it in and loving it more and more. Along with sizing, the only other potential negative is uninsulated pockets. Not a major thing, but insulated can be nice on those fridges days. Not a deal breaker IMO, still a killer piece. The grey and blue looks great, they nailed that color combo.

    Designers must be colorblind!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I know the Superconductor came in black and even a dark green. The black was fine, but they ruined the dark green jacket with a logo and hood lining that's a feminine pastel blue color. The only stock that Backcountry has left all contain some really lame pastel-ish color... BIG SURPRISE that these aren't sold! I bet all of the pastel jackets will eventually be on the Clearance page or in a Goodwill store. I 've noticed Marmot coloring their men's apparel like dummies too. And No, I don't mean ALL Marmot's stuff, but a good amount of their men's outerwear has terrible colors that would go better on women's wear. Of course I know some guys like these colors but definitely a small fraction. I wanted to replace my Black one but I don't want to look like an Easter egg. Bleah! Mtn. Hardwear should be smart and return their logo to the way it used to be with the 'Hard Wear' and the screws inside the nut image yellow.

    Runs Large! But Great Hoodie

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 170lbs

    1. Warning - it runs large. I wear a Med. in Mtn. Hardware for everything but shells I'mm gonna layer under (ski) and this thing in a large is HUGE. I'm gonna send back for a Med.
    2. Its NOT light. If your looking for a Atom AR or a similar beast this is not it... unless weight and bulk are not an issue. This is an insulated soft-shell ... its bomber, similar in warmth to a Atom AR but the outer shell of this is much heavier and significantly more robust.I would call this an outerwear and not a for layering . Wicked piece though.

    Very high quality but runs too large

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Small
    • Height: 5'7"
    • Weight: 135lbs

    If you're looking for an Arcteryx Atom AR killer, this is it. One of the best synthetic insulated jackets sub-$300. Feels warm and durable.
    Sadly, the small runs much larger than the normal mountain hardwear. Not just in fit, but all around. I wish there was an XS.

    Evolution of the micro-puff...

    The Superconductor addresses most of the complaints I had with my last synthetic insulator hoodie (Spyder); its collar didn't come up high enough to protect my neck/face, and the shorter body length let drafts in around my waist.

    The Superconductor has a really nice collar that's generous enough to allow me to tuck my chin in for a cold chairlift ride, or stiff headwind while walking. It's also well designed, to lay flat, and not look dorky like some hoodies when they're not zipped all the way up. The body length extends to just about the hips, which makes it feel a little more like an outerwear piece than an insulator. The soft-shell outer fabric is more burly than the thin nylon of my old jacket, which is another welcome improvement.

    My only three complaints would be that 1. I would prefer an adjustable Velcro wrist closure to the current elastic ones, 2. the elastic waist/hip draw-cord adjusters slip, and invariably go fully slack after any significant movement, and 3. the hand warmer pockets are placed on the outside of the Thermal.Q insulation, which can make for some cold digits in cooler temps.

    Warmth to weight ratio is great, and I really like the smooth outer soft-shell appearance, especially in the color ways Mountain Hardware spec'd this year. I went with the Navy/Rocket Red, and bought an Amphibian/Gold for the wife, which she loves.

    I bought a large for me, which runs a little big, but fits a nano-puff underneath, which is comfortable down to 0F. By itself I'd say the Superconductor's comfort range is in the 20-45F range, depending on how much you're moving. Bright sun, and aerobic activity at 45F, and you'll probably be sweating; 20F and ice fishing, and you're probably going to feel a chill.

    Daily winter coat

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Lg

    This year we have been getting early storms, cold days (highs in the 20's) and decent winds. I wear this coat almost everyday. I am comfortable wearing just medium thickness flannel underneath.
    It's waterproof, windproof, and more abrasion resistant than most down coats.
    Love this jacket.

    Unanswered Question

    I am interested in the Mountain Hardware Superconductor Hooded Jacket. I understand that this jacket runs large. I am 5'11" and 225 lbs and fit . What would be the best size?
