Summary

Versatile, robust, reliable and stretchy softshell for 4-season mountain action.

Pros

  • Good fit, comfortable, stretchy for climbing
  • Windproof
  • Water resistant
  • Robust and reliable

I've used this jacket for 4 years now and I like it a lot. Three seasons alpine climbing and winter ski touring, it exceeded my expectations.

First of all I have to say it's very comfortable and pretty light. It's perfect for alpine climbing, completely windproof, with stretchy arms and helmet compatible hood. I found out then it can handle very well also moderate rain (1-2 hours) and it's very resistant to rock abrasion.

During summer, spring and autumn I confidently use it when climbing multipitch routes in alpine environment. Sometimes just in combination with a tshirt if the weather is good. Does not bring important warmth as outer layer, its primary role is to protect.

Performs admirably also in winter.  It's breathable and can take loads of snow without wetting your inner layer.

Summarizing, I learned this is a very reliable softshell jacked for intense action, in all seasons. Very recommendable. I think this model cannot be found anymore on the market, but probably Marmot has a successor to it.

Fabric: Gore Windstop

A good all round soft shell for mild weather. I have not taken it to any snow yet. Very good flexibility around the arms, so a good choice for action.

You probably don't want to try flying in the Marmot Men's Super Hero Softshell Jacket, but thanks to Gore Windstopper fabric, you'll feel pretty close to invincible when entering harsh alpine conditions. Part of Marmot's M2 Softshell series, the Super Hero's comfortable and stretchy construction blocks 100% of wind and repels water, making it ideal for everything from spring skiing, to alpine rock climbing, to a trip to the local pub. A zip-off hood and vented underarm gussets give you versatility in changing conditions. Marmot added reinforcements on the shoulders and elbows for gritty rock climbs, and DriClime microfleece on the collar and chin guard for added comfort.
