    Play "Red Light, Green Light" all day long in this lightly insulated jacket.

    The itinerary for your ice climbing tour of Norway has been finalized, and you just need to go over the gear checklist on more time. Softshell and midlayer? Check, as you have the Mammut Women's Biwak Light Jacket. This innovative piece of outerwear exploits new insulation technology to give you a lightweight, warm, and breathable puffy-style jacket without the extra puff factor. You can squeeze through small spaces or layer up when snow eddies cloud your vision, and you can do stop-and-go all day long without getting overly heated or sweaty.
    On the outside, the Biwak combines water- and wind-resistant Pertex Quantum fabric in the front and back with Polartec Power Stretch Pro side panels. Your innards stay toasty, but you can still comfortably reach high for a hold or lean over to secure your crampon. Throughout the front and back, Polartec Alpha insulation works its magic to keep you warm without adding weight. This insulation uses high-loft, low-weight fibers in a low-density knit to give you a highly breathable insulation so you won't get sweat-soaked and then shivery when you stop mid-way up the mountain; make speed hiking a new sport and not fall prey to overheating, as this jacket lets the outside air in to keep the heat at a minimum.
    Don't be fooled by the puffy pigeonhole—the Biwak Light sports a slim silhouette so you can layer over it when you need waterproof protection. Thumb loops at the end of high-reach sleeves accommodate overhead movement. Two side pockets and a chest zip pocket give you on-the-go storage options so you don't have to stop and drop your pack every time you want a snack.

    Love it

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: M
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 66lbs

    I have brought a few things off Backcountry.
    I have to say this is my favourite I wear it almost everyday, its comfortable and keeps the cold away with only wearing a t-shirt underneath.
    worth the money.

    Love it!

    Was looking for a good skiing mid-layer and something I could wear as an outer layer when not skiing. It’s perfect, vey warmand remains thin and not too puffy! I got the large and it fits perfect.

    This is one of my favorite jackets ever.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is one of my favorite jackets ever. The fit is great: long torso and plenty long sleeves, plus a high collar that’s snug around your neck. The filling in the vest part is surprisingly warm and the stretchy fleece on the sides and under the arms is super soft. It’s lightweight and easy to pack in your backpack for backcountry skiing or climbing. I took it recently on an overnight running trip in Europe – it fit well into my tiny backpack and also looked smart out on the town in the evening.

    For me, it’s also perfect for super cold mornings at biathlon practice. I know this is a pretty niche market and the designers probably had no thought of biathlon in mind when they made this jacket, but it’s perfect for the sport. The long sleeves stay around my wrists well when I’m taking my rifle on and off my back. The warmth of the filling part is nice for dealing with the cold when I’m on the range or when I’m lying on a snowy mat to shoot, but the best part is the fleece sides – they keep the jacket from being too bulky to get my rifle on and off easily and the grippy texture of the fleece makes it perfect for putting my elbow on my hip when I’m shooting standing. (My elbow slips around if I’m wearing a full nylon jacket.) Plus, no hood which is essential for biathlon. Thank you, Mammut!

    Would have been a great jacket, but...

    I ordered the pink jacket, size L. Instead of receiving the pretty fuscia color depicted in the picture, the jacket was bright hot pink (almost fluorescent) with bubblegum pink side panels. The two pink colors did not even look good together! I returned the jacket because the L was too big on me, and the color was hideous. They were sold out of the blue jacket and I did not want a black one. This would have been a great jacket if only it were really that beautiful fuscia color. Bummer.

    Nice for taller women

    • Fit: Runs small

    I had my eye on this jacket for a while and finally ordered it when it went on sale. Unsure of size, I ordered an XS and a small. The XS fit like second skin, which was not what I was going for. I'd hoped the small would work, but the sleeves and overall length of the jacket were much too long. I have long legs, short torso, and short to average arms. It is a very nice jacket though, and I think this would be great for taller women, so I'm still giving it 4 stars even though it didn't work for me..

    Awesome Jacket

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'6"

    This jacket is fitted, however, there is stretchy fabric on the sides underneath the arms which make is SO comfortable. My arms don't feel restrained when wearing it. I haven't taken it off since I got it!

    Beautiful jacket... but NOT for climbers

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: XS
    • Height: 5'6"
    • Weight: 115lbs

    Such a letdown having to send this jacket back! It's slim-fitting, flattering, and warm (and it has thumbholes)! I really tried to make it work, but the range of motion in the arms and shoulders was just not workable.

    I'm pretty thin for my height (5'6" & 115 lbs), but this jacket was actually constrictive in the shoulders. It's probably fine for non-climbers (I think the other rave reviews are by skiers/snowboarders), but if you need to stretch your arms up over your head, I'd look at The North Face, Rab, and Arc'teryx.

    Best. Jacket. Ever

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: small
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 125lbs

    I have had this jacket 2 years now and am considering purchasing a backup, just because I love it so much. I have used this both as a midlayer and as an outerlayer on blue bird days. I'm tall at 5'10" and the sleeve length is perfect for me. The thumbholes are great for layering up, and the chest pocket is large enough for an iphone and some shot blocks.

    As a midlayer, this jacket is unbeatable. The insulation is strategically placed on the front/back torso and the top of the arms. Along the underarms and ribs there is high quality fleece, which gives you the perfect combination of warmth and breathability. On cold days I ski in this and a shell and feel great.

    As an outer layer this jacket also does well. It has some light water repellancy, and dries fairly quickly, but is most certainly not waterproof, and will water log quickly in a downpour. It offers some protection from wind, but of course, is not a windproof shell.

    All in all, this is my go to jacket for all adventures.

    Best. Jacket. Ever

    Warm, attractive, multitasking jacket

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XS
    • Height: 5'4"
    • Weight: 108lbs

    I love this jacket, and i wear it a lot both as a mid and outer layer.

    What i love about it:

    1) it's warm but not bulky. The material on the sides and under the arms is thinner, stretchy and breathable, so it lets heat escape, keeps you moving well and there is no bulk

    2) it's really nice and hot as a midlayer in ski season, but it's also great as an outer layer the rest of the time since it's also windproof

    3)It's slim fitting and true to size (sometimes mammut runs large, but not in this jacket). Good pockets too.

    4) Looks fabulous on, good lucking picking just one color....

    Note - i didn't find it especially water resistant. It definitely gets wet fast without a shell over it.

    Warm, attractive, multitasking jacket

    Another one I wear all the time.

    I love this jacket. It is so hot. Like in sharp looking. I have the black color.

    This one has been used so much this season as both a mid-layer under shells for snowboarding, as an outer layer for warmer cross country skiing, out and about on the town.... It is a really classy looking yet highly functional jacket.

    The fit is ideal, with longer sleeves and on the slim side. Polartech stretch on the side panels helps to regulate heat so you are not over-toasted. Thumb holes are perfect length so they aren't digging into your hand. Good amount of pockets and the collar is slightly higher than normal to help keep your neck warm. Seems to be withstanding heavy use so a high quality yet very good looking jacket.
