Great softshell for the price!
I picked up the blue Super Hero jacket off of STP at a substantial discount early in the fall. I don't think I could have done any better for the price and have worn the jacket daily since winter hit. The blue color is a bit over the top for my taste, but the black jacket looks very sharp.

On the technical side, the lightweight, stretchy, sturdy fabrics stand up to a beating. Just this weekend, my Super Hero was coated in ice after a lakeside hike while I stayed toasty and dry.

The only drawback I've found so far is the lack of pit zips, but for just over $100, I'm not going to complain!

My go-to jacket
This thing comes everywhere with me, school to the top of Mexico. I really like the fact that there is a full gore-tex hood that zips off, just wish it was a little smaller when rolled into the collar. The material is nice and soft, I've felt some stiff softshells that may as well be hardshells. Not the case here. With one or two light layers underneath this thing provides enough warmth for CO winters and without any it is reasonably comfortable. Like most softshells it lacks pitzips. All around this is my favorite jacket, of many...
