What do you want from mountain sports equipment? It should be light, keep you warm, be extremely robust and not restrict your movements, right? But can you expect this from a jacket or shoes? The answer is yes. The Swiss brand Mammut has been producing optimal equipment for mountaineers since its foundation in 1862. The clear aim is to make mountaineering even easier. Radical products - developed without compromise. Now our partner has introduced the new Mammut Eiger Extreme Collection.

The Eiger Extreme Collection has been around for 25 years and Mammut is redefining extremes in 2020. The individual products are named after the Swiss mountain Eiger and the Eiger Nordwand. Here we present the technologies, the different parts of the collection and the Mammut brand:

The technologies of the Mammut Eiger Extreme Collection

In order to meet its own standards, Mammut relies on high-tech materials, the best workmanship and maximum functionality to achieve top Alpine performance. This is the only way to create a light, breathable and extremely robust range of shoes, jackets and trousers.

Every gram saved makes a big difference on the mountain when climbing, hiking and other outdoor sports. We introduce you to four technologies of Mammut Eiger Extreme clothing:

GORE-TEX Pro material

The new GORE-TEX Pro fabric is the ultimate in durable waterproofing and high breathability. The Pro membrane is extremely robust and durably waterproof and protects you even from heavy snow or continuous rain. Even icy winds - such as during ice climbing or extreme alpine tours - cannot harm you with the new GORE-TEX Pro membrane.

The Pro version also features extra stretch inserts to allow maximum freedom of movement without compromising on protection and breathability. GORE-SEAM Tape is used here to keep the seams as thin as possible but still stable.

The new technology is particularly durable using recycled and spun fibre woven materials. These reduce CO2 emissions and thus ensure a lower ecological footbath pressure. The new GORE-TEX membranes, for example, are designed to have a low environmental impact.

Mammut Georganic 3D Technology™

Mammut has developed this technology to ensure unrestricted freedom of movement on the mountain. It consists of an ergonomic cut that is moulded to the body of the athlete and is based on natural movements.

For example, strech inserts and preformed sections were used in various places, including the elbows and knees. This means that the Mammut jackets and trousers will follow your every move. The outdoor clothing of the Mammut Eiger Extreme range fits perfectly and does not slip up when you reach up.

Mammut High Visibility Backer™

The design of the Eiger Extreme collection has been developed with a focus on safety and high visibility in alpine terrain. The highly visible Safety Orange has been used on many products in this line. Be it on the inside of the jacket, as a mesh insert in breast and side pockets or as the main element in various Mammut jackets and trousers. So you will be seen well and quickly even in heavy snow or other difficult conditions.

The products of the Mammut Eiger Extreme collection

Since the first generation, Mammut outdoor clothing has stood for minimum weight and optimum performance. The new collection also sets a new standard in this development. Mammut's motto is clear: radical products - developed without compromise. Here we would like to introduce three of the articles in more detail.

Mammut Eiger Extreme Nordwand Pro HS Hooded Jacket

The new Mammut Eiger Extreme Nordwand Pro HS Hooded Jacket for men is made from a sophisticated combination of extremely robust, lightweight and elastic GORE-TEX® Pro. This means it can withstand even the most adverse conditions.

Thanks to the above mentioned technologies, the outdoor jacket guarantees excellent freedom of movement. The storm-proof, vertically and horizontally adjustable, helmet-compatible hood is, thanks to the adjustable drawstrings with COHAESIVE stopper, quick and easy to use even with gloves.

Mammut Eiger Extreme Eiswand Advanced Midlayer

In addition to a strong hard shell, a midlayer also belongs to a perfect mountain outfit. As a second layer, Mammut has introduced the Eiger Extreme Ice Wall Advanced ML Hooded Jacket. This outdoor jacket is light, elastic and breathable, yet very robust.

For this midlayer, Mammut uses high-quality Pontetorto Merino Tecnowool, which ensures very pleasant wearing comfort - even directly on the skin - and optimum climate management. The merino wool also reduces unpleasant odours to a minimum so that you don't have to use different midlayers for long tours or tours lasting several days.

In order to make the jacket particularly durable, a transparent ceramic print was used, which provides extra abrasion protection. Additional Stormfleece with the Eiger waffle structure has been used in particularly hard-wearing areas, so that even direct contact with rock does not harm the midlayer.

Like the other garments in the Eiger Extreme collection, the jacket has climbing harness compatible side pockets and the highly visible Safety Orange on the mesh inserts and on the inside of the jacket. This means that the jacket can be used for all mountain activities, whether climbing, hiking or mountaineering, and is the perfect partner in nature.

Fit and comfort of Mammut Eiger Extreme clothing

Overall, Mammut has opted for a more athletic cut in this clothing. The first and second layers in particular are designed to fit closely to the body and are therefore rather narrow. With the third layer, care is taken to ensure that you can wear an insulating layer underneath without any problems and that the jacket is still not too big and could get caught somewhere.

The midlayer feels very soft and comfortable and does not rub even with a rucksack. The hood also gives a pleasant feeling and warms well. The hardshell jacket and trousers feel relatively hard at first - but you get used to them quickly. The Gore-Tex Pro material is altogether very robust and therefore a little harder.

Normally I wear size M, as with this collection. If you vary between 2 sizes, you should rather go for the larger size with the midlayer.
