Nordwand Pro HS Hooded Shell Jacket

A seriously tough, expedition-ready shell, the Mammut Women's Nordwand Pro HS Hooded Shell Jacket is for alpinists who require gear they can count on to reach their objectives. They say the key to a good defense is a good offense, and the fully taped, three-layer, Gore-Tex Pro shell puts up a solid fight against the harshest of elements. Mammut's High Reach and Vertical Motion technologies let you maneuver your way through the crux with unrestricted mobility, and the external chest pocket is backpack-compatible so it's easy to reach for some nutrition when you need a little energy boost.

Amazing Ski Coat

I used this jacket on demo in size small as a 5'8" 140lb female. It fit perfectly. Doesn't let a touch of wind through the shell or zipper, pockets are all located super conveniently, especially the side pockets, which sit higher to allow access with a pack on. The snowskirt fit nice and snug, and didn't let any snow in after a few tumbles at the resort. The only minor downside is the front sipper can be hard to pull up over your mouth with gloves on -- probably due to the burly waterproof nature of the jacket. Either way, I'd take waterproof and windproof over a mildly more functional zipper. I paired this with a Backcountry mid-layer top, and a Backcountry base layer in 15-25 degree temps, and was happy all day.

What can I say, the things I love about this jacket are endless. Light, durable, flattering, waterproof, breaths well, is easy to pack and has all the bells and whistles you need without anything extra that weighs it down. I took this on a frigid overnight winter camp tour with high winds and it performed like a dream. Keeps you warm and blocks the wind when you need it but has great breathability to help you temperature regulate while you're moving. I would take it anywhere (and I do).

Is it even windy?

I used this jacket in the resort and it was super great! It is more recommended for touring but it did its job at Grand Targhee. There were up to 40 miles an hour wind gusts. I didn't feel an ounce of wind through that sucker! Woweeeee! I was super impressed! The jacket fit true to size. Pants were a little snug but nothing too constricting i would suggest sizing up. The mobility of this outfit is superb! The breathability is so fresh you will never want to step out of this outfit! There are large vents under the arms and vents on the outside of the legs. The hood is helmet compatible. The colors are rad and everyone will be jealous of your wind and waterproof ski suit.

I used the Goret-Tex Norwand Pro jacket and pants for both ice climbing and backcountry skiing. I haven’t used them mountaineering, but trust that they’d be excellent. I also used them on the resort. These are not specifically intended for use in the resort, but they definitely can be. You would just have to add a heavier base or mid-layer for really cold days, because the fabric isn’t as thick and heavy as most ski jackets. Gore-Tex is always the nicest luxury to have in your technical pieces, but it was really crucial for this ice climb because there is one section that where you almost always have to dry tool through water. So, I would have been soaked, if I didn’t have Gore-Tex. Also, the breathability of Gore-Tex is essential, for both ice climbing and ski touring, since you build up a quite a sweat. Or, at least I do. It was an unusually warm day for ice climbing, so the protection from the wet ice and my sweat, was awesome. The high and long hand pockets do make it easy to access items, while you have your harness on. The pit zips are easy to use as is the burley main zip. The collar goes way up! It totally shields your face. I’ve yet to use it, but it’s cool that it’s there. The jacket shows no signs of use, even though I dragged it up rock and ice. I’m typically a medium/size 4. Mammut has a slimmer cut than my US brands. The medium does fit with a thin down jacket or fleece, as a mid-layer, but that is it. IF you want a looser and longer fit, go up a size. I move comfortably in the medium, so sizing up would be more for style, than for functionality. These work for skiing for much of the same reasons. They are breathable going uphill and very comfortable to move in. Also, it’s light and easily rolls up in your pack.
