The Mammut Runbold Insulated Jacket is a relative unicorn here in the United States. You see, this jacket is from Mammut's Europe-only line of products. Fortunately, Backcountry was granted the exclusive opportunity to bring 30 of these rare pieces across the pond to the good old USA.
Yes, just 30.
I've been testing mine since February and really have been impressed.
1) Alpine Wool insulation breathes and regulates body temperature extremely well - it is warm when you need it, but not hot when you don't. I've worn it throughout the fall, and just this week temps have dropped into the 20's overnight (7,200') - still, the Runbold IS still is great for me hiking with the dog first thing in the am.
2) The fit is fantastic. I am 6'2", 185 and the jacket might fit me better than any other jacket I currently own. It is trim without feeling cramped, has a good below-belt length and a slight drop tail. The hood and collar are great when fully zipped and don't get in the way when the hood isn't being worn. This is normal sized hood, so good with a hat or beanie.
3) Refined Styling. The logo treatments are extremely subtle, giving the jacket a premium look and feel. It's as fitting to wear out to a nice dinner as it is to chop wood, or go for a hike... after all, it is Mammut. From Switzerland.
