‘Top-notch Pertex fabrics and PrimaLoft insulation in a sleekly-cut slickly designed jacket for all-round outdoors use. You may need to go up a size with the Rime Pro though.’
Outdoors Magic: Cleverly zoned PrimaLoft fill and Pertex outer fabrics, seam-free shoulders, decent helmet hood, snuggly fleece-lined pockets, glove-friendly zip-pulls, reasonable water resistance.
Outdoors Tragic: A little weighty for its warmth value, very slim cut, ‘just’ Silver level fill.
Outdoors Grabbit? Mammut’s uncompromising ‘Absolute alpine’ label translates to a super sleek, close-fitting, PrimaLoft jacket. It’s not a forgiving cut and you may need to go up a size if you want to use it for over-layering, but the quality is hard to fault and while it’s medium rather than super warm, its damp-friendly nature make it a capable all-round insulation mate. Slightly weighty.
