Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 9"
Weight: 175 lbs
Size Purchased: L

Received excellent service from Backcountry staff, very quick and secure shipment. Good job Backcountry.

The jacket is real nice, but not what I need or expected. I am returning it.
Mammut states regular cut. It is not. I am 5'9, 175, very athletic, large. A regular cut should permit movement and layering. It is a trim athletic cut - one thin layer under at most.

Comparing this to my TNF Apex Bionic, the Mammut material is thinner. Possibly the Windstopper material works that much better. But I cannot wear it to find out. It is just too close fitting to layer. My Bionic, though much less expensive, has been used heavily for ski patrol for at least three years. I was seeking a similar jacket with another two inches of length and a hood.

The Mammut Ultimate Alpine is a great jacket if you want a trim fit. I recommend climbing and hiking, but not skiing. I had my hopes too high.

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: Runs small

I wore the radius for over ten years and now am finally changing to the Moab.
I used them around the house and town for a few days to get accustomed to them. So far, I did a few short hikes (4 - 7 miles). Seems like a good shoe. They feel quick and agile. Traction may be slightly less than the Radius. They were noticeable slightly less grippy on wet rocks.

I like the shoes in many ways including agility when hiking.

Ii have tried many packs and have always found Osprey Atmos pack to be a good choice. This Osprey Atmos 35 is very good for what I need. I was looking for a comfortable pack, in the 2000 ci range. It has enough to be very functional. Water system storage is good. Good pockets. Excellent suspension which really does work to bring some cooling. The waster battle pockets on the side are a good size.
Good pack for day, long day, and overnight.
