Super Gravity Is Great
What a jacket, perfect fit, very warm, high quality and simple fabulous, it looks so good. Went out skiing with this jacket kept me warm and once I started to warm up, the breathability nof this jacket was very good. This is a jacket that you will find yourself not wearing alot because it is so nice that you don't want to wear it all the time.

different between Super Hero and Super Gravity
I've been looking at those jackets as well trying to find a good all-around softshell and can give you my observations. The ROM is the lightest, most flexible jacket with almost no insulation (brushed material). The Super Gravity is the heaviest, most durable material with a fair amount of fleece lining. The Super Hero is right between the two with heavier fleece in the hood, shoulders, outside of arms and brushed material on the rest. The ROM and Super Hero use Gore Windstopper, whereas the Super Gravity uses Marmot's proprietary laminate material. All are windproof and are water-resistant for everything but an extended downpour or sitting in the snow. The ROM is the most breathable with stetch panels on the side of the torso arms (that increase breathability, but don't block the wind or cold). The Super Gravity has no venting other than the pockets. The Super Hero is again in the middle with breathable panels under the armpits only. I think either the Super Hero or Super Gravity would be the best choice for an all-around jacket, as the ROM seems to be more of a windstopper for aerobic activities. If you tend to get cold, plan to use it for cold-weather activities, or are looking for a thicker, more durable jacket, the Super Gravity might be a good choice (keep in mind that you may want to size up if you want to add a lot of insulating layers underneath). If you'll be using the jacket for high-energy/aerobic activities or if you want the flexibility to adjust the warmth by adjusting layers, the Super Hero might make sense.

GREAT ALTERNATIVE TO MH WINDSTOPPER
I HAVE BEEN WEARING MY MOUNTAIN HARDWEAR OFF AND OFF FOR SEVERAL YEARS AND DECIDED TO START RUNNING OUTDOORS IN SEATTLE WEATHER WHICH IS NOW WINTER SEASON WHICH HAS LOTS OF RAIN AND WIND WHILE THE MH DID A GREAT JOB WITH WIND AND LIGHT RIGHT MY BIGGEST COMPLAIN IS THE PET HAIR IT ATTRACTS I HAVE A PET LOVER AND TAKE MY SHORTY BULL ON RUNS SEVERAL TIMES A WEEK. THE GRAVITY BEING A SOFT SHELL WILL NOT ACT LIKE A MAGNET TO PET HAIR AS MY MH DID. NOT TO MENTION ITS WATERPROOF AND STILL BREATHABLE! WHO SAID YOU CAN'T HAVE YOUR CAKE AND EAT IT TOO! I LOVE THIS JACKET AND WOULD RECOMMEND IT TO ANY ONE ESPECIALLY PET LOVERS! YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED AND ITS GUARANTEED FOR LIFE!

I'm 5'10' ,160lbs ,the medium fits perfectly.the angel wing design works great,sleeves never ride up,and i have long arms. The jacket is great for off-trail adventures.Mostly use the jacket on weekend day hikes and scrambles.Layering works well on colder days
