David K.wrote a review of Marmot Super Hero Softshell Jacket - Men's on April 12, 2011
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.
