awesome style but an odd fit
October 15, 2012
I had no clue what size I am in mountain hardwear, but I took a chance and ordered the purple in medium. I must say that it is an awesome color which looks as great in person as online. I love the orange piping and the details are very nice. The fabric feels like a good quality and the zipper works like a charm. Overall the construction is very nice, and this is clearly a quality brand. Unfortunately this jacket just didn't work out for me because the medium is too loose in the body. It just didn't quite look right. The cut of the jacket with the material it is made out of makes it require a tighter fit. But I can't size down because I have pretty thin arms with very tiny little wrists, and the wrist part of the arms feels like it is pulling when I put my thumbs in the thumb-holes. The arms are not too short or tight by any means so I don't know why this is, my guess is that the hole is in poor positioning, too high up the sleeve. When I take my thumbs out it feels ok but then there's a LOT of extra fabric bunched up around my wrists, and I want to be able to comfortably use the thumb-holes. I thought that maybe i got a weird one and I was going to exchange it, but ultimately I have decided to accept that maybe this jacket isn't for me & just send it back. A large would look shapeless & dumpy in the body and a small might end up being even more of a problem in the arm area. Oh well. For size reference, I am 5' 7" about 115lbs. In most brands I can fit a small but smalls are usually too tight for my taste & I tend to like the way a medium fits. I don't want my tops to be too tight on my tummy but I do like a fitted look. Being between sizes can be a challenge especially as every company sizes differently & they aren't all consistent in their own sizing. In Arcteryx I usually like a medium. I find that I tend to best fit in a medium in Columbia, except for the columbia benton springs in which I am a small and the medium was huge on me. In TNF I am a small or medium depending on the cut. It seems that a lot of TNF thinner zip up fleece are more juniors cut & I need a medium, but for the TNF Denali & khumba jackets I found that small is best as the mediums are too big overall. Hope this helps!Pros: Build quality, Cons: weird thumbholes
#1 Favorite piece of gear EVER!!!!!
January 26, 2011
I have an addiction to Mountain hardwear, but this is the most versatile piece of MH gear I've had to date and will be the one piece of clothing I will reach for everyday...I think I better get a few more so ill have something to wear when one is in the wash. The fit is perfect slim fitting size xs but with xtra long sleeves !!!! hooooraaaayyyy! Im a trail runner mountainbiker snowshoer snowboarder I telemark, skateski and occasionally do an adventure race....I will wear this for every one of those activities and I can even wear it out for the evening it actually looks pretty hot with a cute pair of jeans. the fit is very true to an xsmall body but sleeves and length allow for one to be xs size but not necessarily short. The fitted hood and xtra long sleeves w/ thumb holes are stylish and an xtra bonus when the temp drops...... I LOVE IT!!!!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
arms too tight, (plenty long, just tight!)

While I loved the look and feel of this jacket, it was too tight on my arms to wear anything under it. I thought this would be great to wear over some layers for walking/ running even skiing, but I think you will find you have to wear this alone or over a short sleeve shirt.

I purchased this jacket with the intent to wear it while running. It is a perfect layer to wear while running while it is cloudy and cool. It is comfortable, breaths well, and does not get too smelly on a 10 mile run. In addition the thumb holes are great, there is no bunching around my wrist, which is helpful when wearing my running watch. Also, it makes a wonderful layer to put under my heaver winter jacket. I am very satisfied with my purchase and would happily recommend this jacket to others.Pros: Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
Did you recently buy the Mountain Hardwear Super Power Hoody? Write a review.

I've never worn Mountain Hardware, so maybe I was expecting too much at this price point. I have a Marmot Power Stretch Fleece hoodie which I love, and I was hoping for something similar (tightly woven stretch fleece with a flat exterior weave). I got this to wear over layers indoors as I'm always cold. It's thin and flimsy and offers the warmth you'd expect from a track jacket - not fleece. It's not very well put together - the pocket lining feels cheap and the inside zipper flap doesn't lie flat easily. Also, I couldn't tell from the photo, but the blue has a slight heathering to it which to my eye looks like cheap sweatshirt material. The fit and styling is nice, it's just not the item I was hoping for. At 5'11" 165 lbs with broad shoulders and long arms, I bought a large and it fit well with room for layers underneath - though perhaps a bit larger than other brands. I could easily fit into the thumb loops.Cons: Poor quality
