Good quality, fit and design

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

I've also owned this for a few months, so not sure on the long term waterproofing and wear. However the waterproofing has worked so far, albeit not in constant heavy rain. I love the fit of the hood, both up and down. Chin is covered perfectly so you don't get drafts, but not too high to affect breathing. Rim also works well holding hood in shape. When I had shorter hair it was a bit rus-ly when moving your head. Minor but just a point.

In regards to fit I'm pretty thin so a little baggy in the stomach area but should be perfect in winter with layers. Arms are a good length.

Breathability is fantastic! I had it on holiday in Spain in case of rain showers, but had to use it one day as it was the only thing I had with me that had long sleeves after getting a bit sunburn. It was great up to around 30C heat, not trapping sweat. Much better than any other jacket I've had.

Very light jacket.

Main downside is the zip, although it's just for the particular jacket I have. It's sometimes not attaching or becoming unattached when the starting to zip or undoing it. A bit annoying considering the price. I imagine it could be fixed if I sent it back, but wanting it for the summer and it's an occasional thing at the moment so not the worst issue.

Great quality, design and performance

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

I have owned one of these for a few months now. I have worn it on backcountry and front country ski trips. The ergonomics are great for me with a few sleek pockets right where they are useful but not in the way. I have been out on some sleety/snowy/rainy days for extended hours. This is where breathable laminate jackets often fail. I stayed dry and comfortable. This jacket is too new to know whether this waterproof ability will last for several years. So many of those other more familiar brands to USA consumers, you know the ones which went to Asia for the cheap labor about fifteen years while jacking up their prices at the same time, just don't stay weatherproof for longer than two years of serious use.

I am particularly impressed with the hood/collar design of this jacket. It lays nicely when not being deployed for use. When the front zip is all the way up, the top of the collar nests just below the nose. When wearing ski googles it give the coverage of a balaclava without the discomfort.

I get lots of positive comments on this jacket. People are curious about the brand and lots will often comment, after I tell them that Mammut is a very old mountaineering brand from Switzerland, that they are looking for something different than what they have been trying.
