Reviews

Women's Superforma™ Jacket is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Much better than Gortex! This is a great shell....it looks good, feels good and it basically kept me dry. I used this to hike up Mount Washington using crampons and trekking poles so we were exerting a lot of effort. I was sweating mostly from the exertion and not the jacket. I never felt overheated but we did change layers as we ascended the mountain so the hood was on and off at various times and thus, snow would fall on my head and the neck opening and as a result I was a little wet around my neck. Basically, the rest of me was fairly dry so the jacket did its job. I have two complaints/suggestions for improvements. The hood was too big even using the snaps at the back and the tighten of the cords around the face...I think having some adjustment at the back would be better so I can adjust the hood and keep it from falling in front over my eyes. However, it should be noted that I am petite but busty so I needed a size large to fit my chest and to layer underneath so this may be a function of having to buy a bigger size to fit my chest. Secondly, the zipper was difficult to manage initially and after learning the best way to zip up the jacket, it was less of an issue. If the hood and zipper could be improved, I would rate this as a 5 in terms of function. Regardless, I may be getting a second color since I want to coordinate with other pieces that I have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What can't the Superforma do? MHW seems to have revisited the features on their 3-layer waterproof shells this fall/winter and it's all GOOD! The adjustment at the nape to reduce the volume of the helmet-compatible hood is easy to use and actually works really well, which I find rare. The buttons to cinch the hood around the face are big and have silicone on the outside for ease of use with gloves. The pit vents are HUGE which I find just delightful. The hip pockets are high enough to accommodate a harness or backpack, but aren't awkward to use just around town. And the fit is the most hip-friendly of any MHW shell I've tried in 2 years. Bonus points that with all these thoughtful features of weighs in under 15oz.
