Following the incredible success we had last winter with their avalanche safety gear we’ve just taken delivery our our Autumn/Winter range of Mammut clothing. Mammut are one of the most innovative manufacturers in the ourdoor market with an ever evolving choice of fabrics and construction techniques. We’ve picked out a range of what we think is their most exciting ski touring and winter mountaineering gear. Here’s a few examples:
The Mammut Extreme Logan Jacket is perhaps the ultimate winter mountaineering hardshell. It is constructed from Gore Stretch Pro Shell which gives it the breathability you’d expect from Pro Shell but with tremendous freedom of movement and comfort. This makes it especially suitable for hard mixed and icefall climbing. The Logan Jacket also zips into the Extreme Logan Pant to give an incredibly weatherproof clothing system for the most challenging mountaineering environments.
The Mammut Chalten Jacket is an incredibly innovative mountaineering and skiing hard shell. It is constructed from Schoeller’s new C_Change fabric which actually becomes more or less breathable depending on the temperature and how hard you’re working. What that means is that when you’re slogging into a route generating loads of heat the Chalten will breath incredibly well but then when you’re standing at a freezing belay the breathability will drop and trap heat against your skin. The jacket is also probably the toughest hard shell jacket we’ve eve seen with an almost softshell-like feel. Ideal for Scottish winter climbing and skiing.
According to Stu who’s had one on test, the Mammut Zip Long Sleeve All Year is the best baselayer he’s ever used. It uses three different fabrics to offer you excellent breathability under the arms, wicking on the chest and back and great freedom of movement on the arms. This really is a great choice for year-round use but is especially suited to high output winter use: ski touring and winter walking.
There’s loads more in the full range including some great softshell pants and jackets and some interesting midlayers. If there’s anything else you want from them then we can special order it from them, let us know.
