What do you want from your mountain sports equipment? It should be light, warm, extremely robust and not restrict your movement in any way, right? But can you really expect all of this from a jacket or a pair of shoes? The answer is ‘yes’
Swiss brand Mammut
was founded in 1862 and has been kitting out mountaineers with great equipment ever since. The label’s goal is to make alpinism easier. Now, our partner has launched the new Mammut Eiger Extreme collection, which is the fourth generation of its kind and Mammut’s way of redefining the term ‘extreme’. The individual pieces are named after Mt. Eiger, in Switzerland, and its north face. We’d like to introduce you to the collection’s technologies, the different pieces and the brand Mammut.
Technologies in the Mammut Eiger Extreme collection
In order to achieve their goal, Mammut use high-tech materials, come up with the best designs and deliver optimal functionality. The result is a light, breathable and extremely robust range
of shoes, jackets and pants. Every single gram saved makes a big difference when you’re climbing or hiking up a mountain. Following are four technologies to be found in Mammut Eiger Extreme clothing:
Mammut Vertical Motion Construction™
If you want to enjoy unrestricted freedom of movement up in the mountains, you need this Mammut technology by your side. It consists of an ergonomic cut
based on human anatomy. The underarm areas and pant gussets, for example, are equipped with elasticated materials, the elbows and knees, however, are already moulded into shape. This means that jackets and pants will follow your every move.
Mammut High Reach Technology™
The jackets in the Mammut Eiger Extreme line all fit perfectly and stay in place when you lift your arms. The fit is based on a complex underarm gusset construction used in a three-dimensional cut pattern
. The result is unprecedented vertical freedom of movement while climbing.
Mammut Phase Map™
This technology seamlessly combines different material properties
. The resulting material impresses with a low weight, a great look and the highest performance.
Mammut Single Pull Hood™
Mammut Single Pull Hood™ allows you to adjust the helmet-compatible hood with just one tug. You can enjoy all of the comfort and protection of a hood with a system that’s incredibly easy to use. What’s more: you can use it one-handed, which is very practical when you’re climbing.
Since the first generation, the products in the Mammut Eiger Extreme collection
have always provided minimal weight and optimal performance. The new jackets, pants and shoes in this latest launch, however, have raised the bar for both properties. Mammut’s motto is clear as day: “Less weight, more adventure”
. Now we’re going to explore three of the collection’s articles in a little more depth.

Mammut Nordwand Light Mid GTX®
The perfect shoes for a speedy trip to the mountains. The Mammut Nordwand Light Mid GTX®
are the lightest fully crampon-compatible shoes in Mammut’s selection
. The large, stretchy zone around the tongue area provides comfort, as do the elasticated sockliner and upper of this Mammut mountain shoe. The heart of this innovative masterpiece is the patented outsole with Carbon midsole
. This is what makes the men’s Nordwand Light Mid GTX® not only extremely light but also very precise and stable. The MICHELIN® Alpine Lite 3970 sole
is the first mountaineering sole to be produced by the tyre specialists - and it’s made exclusively for Mammut. The Gore-Tex membrane also guarantees complete waterproofing. We believe that the Mammut Nordwand Light Mid GTX® is the perfect shoe for using on alpine terrain in winter and on mixed trips. You can find the Nordwand Light Mid GTX® here
