Great update to the previous Trion Guide. Front Pocket redesign is killer. You can now fit much more in the front pocket even carry most standard shovels so use as a ski pack makes this a year round tool in the quiver. New Ice Axe attachments also will work with any type of axe now. Full side zip access on one side is great and love the rope carry strap under the lid for when you got this baby maxed with gear and can't fit your rope inside. Super tough 420 Triton ripstop and Balistics base and reinforcements will ensure this pack holds up. Molded belt and back panel and the butterfly frame make this thing carry and climb like a dream.

The Tea Guide form Mammut is really the only w's specific pack in the 40L capacity on the market. The pack essentially shares the same feature's and shape with the great selling Trion Guide M's version. But the suspension system is geared to fit a w's body. Torso length is adjusted, Soulder straps are narrower and more curved as well as the hip belt being cut for a w's anatomy. Slightly softer fabric covering in the shoulder straps and hip belts as well.

The packs carries great and is super tough for years of use. Great set of features to. Newly designed front pocket is great to separate wet gear or carry crampons or anything you want quick access to. Also will hold a shovel so you can use this as a ski pack int he winter. Huge side access to the pack with a full length side zip. Rope carrying strap under the top lid. Hydration compatible, ice tool loops that will work on old school Mountaineering axe's or the most modern leashless waterfall ice tools.

Great all around rope. Besides the fact that it is the only Green rope on the market. The rope is made with transfer yarns which are first quality yarns that in the dying process otherwise would be thrown out. Mammut takes these Transfer yarns and braids them into beautiful ropes. Plus they offset their carbon emissions form their rope factory by working projects around the world to build dams for Hydro power, greenhouses to grow food in remote regions etc. The rope is the same as the Tusk 9.8 with each rope having its own unique color and pattern due to the random Transfer yarns.

got the green ones and they are killer. Great fit and out of the box feel. A pretty soft shoe so really comfortable and cushy. The rubber is very sticky especially in the toe area. Great friction on slabs and approaches. Not a shoe you'll stand in aiders but wear this day to day and as an approach/hiker.

Very nice pullover. I use this mountain biking when its cool out. Front is very wind resistant and still really breathable. Back fabric is super breathable. Will be a great Alpine Climbing piece. Where it as an outlayer or mid layer under another soft shell or hardshell or insulator. Nice cut,not too tight not too loose. Went for the red its is sharp!

This Mammut Alpine Underwear is killer. It is a blend of merino wool and synthetic micro fiber. Get the top as well its great. There are three different materials used in the right places. quick drying in areas needed and more warmth in ares that get cold faster. Just about the best base layer I've used.

It should, unless there is stock form last year, I beleive all of the units Backcountry.com has are the new ones. The units can be updated at Mammut USA or several shops around the country that offer the update and have the wireless hardware to do the update. Worth getting the upgrade but the older softwear are fully compatible with the new v3.0 and every other 457 frequency beacon.

The unit uses the international standard frequency. This beacon will work with any other 457 beacons in EU or USA or anywhere doesn't matter where. What you've heard about a different frequency pertains only to the Pulse feature (sensitive motion sensor) which can detect respiration of a victim. This feature uses a different frequency in Europe than the US due to FAA regulations. The units settings can be changed by the user if you buy it in the US and travel to Europe lets say. Again, this beacon will work everywhere.

Love the Monolith GTX. Made by Mammut but used to be Raichle. Super high quality and great fitting. Fits medium width and locker heel fit. LIke the lacing, supportive and you can easily isolate the upper part from the lower partfor a perfect feel hiking in these and allowing the ankle to flex without having your foot slip around in the lower boot. Pretty darn light also.

These are insulated with GoreTex's Duratherm insulation/membrane/wicking liner. They don't really give them a tempurature but these are great for lower 48 mountaineering boot and also would be acceptible for winter day ice climbing. The insulation is equivalent to 200G Thinsulate.
