Closeouts. Originally designed for cold-weather training, Mountain Hardwear's Super Power hoodie jacket can be pressed into active service during any winter endeavor, from cleaning up the yard to building a snow fort.

I read the other reviews and knowing Mountain Hardwear has a great extra small and small size fit l for athletic builds, I tried this anyway. The arms actually have a thumb hole so you can wear the sleeves a partial hand warmers. The fit is athletic/trim and the hoody has a generous fit without feeling floppy. i you plan to wear anything under this (running shirt, tank tops order one size up. It can be worn as a under layer without anything (other than a bra). Love it and it is warmer than it seems on the first wear. It retains heat but is also breathable. I've warn it running (too hot for a 60 degree run so i tied it round my waist) and to the gym (took it off after 10 minutes on the elliptical) and it was simply perfect under a cycling jacket/shell in 40 degree weather.

I bought this to replace a mid-layer jacket for ice climbing. After a ton of research I decided to purchase this jacket. Overall I'm very satisfied. I especially love the fit. I have a long torso and it is hard to find a mid-layer that is long enough to stay comfortably put under a harness. The sleeves are a perfect length and the thumbholes keep them in place when moving and stretching. I read quite a few reviews that stated this had a strange fit, but I had no problems. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars was because the jacket isn't as warm as I would like. I had to add an extra base layer to stay warm enough for full day climbing excursion.

Really like this jacket. Very cute style and wonderful colors. Can be worn as alone or under a vest. The 'M' size is fine for me. I'm fairly slim and I wore it with a silk undershirt and a vest for snowshoeing and it was perfect. Sleeve and body are nice and long.

I really like this jacket a lot and have tried to find as many ways possible to wear it in the short time I have had it. I originally bought a medium, but exchanged it for a small. I am 5' 7" tall and weigh about 135 lbs. I have a thin build, but longer than average arms and rather broad shoulders. I was surprised, happily, that the small fit. The sleeves are long enough even when using the thumb holes. It isn't tight fitting through the waist which is great as when I run, the jacket doesn't ride up above my waist.
If someone wanted a looser fit, I would suggest a medium but I wanted something a little more fitted to flatter my slim build.

Sides are shorter than front and back, weird fit, tight sleeves. Everywhere other than STP this had bad reviews. It falls like a balloon around the botton, very rounded I mean. Not fitted enough, or long enough, I don't like the fit, just the colors. GREAT COLORS!!

I ordered this in a medium, I am 5'7 and 135 pounds usually hovering between a size 4 and size 6. This jacket was a little big around the waist. I was wanting something a little more fitted so opted to order the small and see how it played out. The medium fit great everywhere else, so I am skeptical that the small will work, but I really liked the style and color so wanted to try again. I think this is just a preference in fit, someone my same size could think the jacket fit great so I wouldn't want anyone to be discouraged.
Also, I used to find Mt. Hardwear sizes to be short in the arms. They seem to have corrected this as I have been happy with sleeve length the last couple years when trying on and purchasing Mt. Hardwear products for women.

This jacket is very true to size and very beautiful color. I got the violet/purple one. I have not had it very long to give you the full opinion of this item. I have worn it once and it feel nice on and as well as fit nicely.
