Low-profile Polaretec protection from the elements.
Loose, bulky insulation layers can get in the way if you're climbing or skiing, but the Mammut Schneefeld Women's Fleece Jacket is a technical piece that fits under a shell without cramping your style on long alpine routes or backcountry ski adventures. Made with a combination of warm Polartec Thermal Pro and stretchy, wicking Power Stretch fleeces, the Schneefeld is lightweight and has thump loops to prevent sleeves from riding up, eliminating cold and drafty gaps that can bum you out when you're hiking a windy ridge two-way adjustable hood that fits under a climbing helmet. Mammut even tricked the Schneefeld out with Gorilla-Tape-reinforced pockets to keep moisture out, and 50 UPF fabric to shield you from the sun when you're outside the whole day.

Awesome jacket! Even more if you're tall
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
I have a bunch of quality jackets from mammut, norr�na, patagonia, 66 north and more. This one is the best powerstrech one I've come across.
The 'hardface' IS more sturdy and firmer than normal powerstretch, it can take a lot more beating from for example rock climbing before it will even begin to look like it's been used. And it does block quite some wind.
It also have the grid interior for better moist transportation and breathability - like a patagonia R1 or capilene 4.
I find the fit perfect; long lean cut, no bunching in the arm pits when its under a shell, tighter fit on the underarms - again no bulk under a jacket, the thumbholes somehow just feels better than in any other jacket i've tried (don't notice there's any fabric in/around my palm). I have long arms, and the sleeves are long enough for me, and to actually use the thumbholes - I don't think shorter arms will be a problem though, since the sleeves are quite slim.
The hood fits tight enough around the face, but has space enough for all of my hair when it's done in the back of my head. And ther's a small brim.
Sizechart is accurate, but it is really an athletic fit! My messures are bust 94cm waist 79cm hip108cm I can use both M & L, but went with the large. I'm 5'9, with a long torso and the L has nice hiplenght, I do normally have a lot of of trouble finding sweaters and jackets that's long enough.
The pictures are accurate too, it IS very bright colors, and the black one is NOT black, it's charcoal like the picture - makes the colored details pop!!
