You can't control the weather, but, due to immutable laws of nature, it's guaranteed to be horrendous during your next alpine expedition or serious ski trip. The best you can do is to be relentlessly prepared, which is where the Mammut Nordwand Pro Men's Jacket comes in. It's more rugged than the peaks you're testing yourself against, with serious Gore-Tex Pro protection and a burly nylon/elastane face fabric that is as comfortable squeezing through tight chimneys and heinous off-widths as it is deflecting tree branches, ski edges, and stray ice tools. Not only is it abrasion-resistant, but it's extremely packable and features built-in four-way stretch technology smooth nylon lining, and articulated, extended-hem sleeves that allow the Nordwand to move with you when you're climbing, hiking, skiing, or skinning so you don't feel like you're undertaking a seriously technical traverse in a gappy straightjacket. Mammut knows as well as you do that the storm clouds will roll in as soon as you finish the approach and start stepping into your harness, so they built the Nordwand with a Gore-Tex Pro waterproof and breathable membrane that's guaranteed to keep you dry from the inside and the out on every expedition short of a scuba-diving trip. The pockets and underarm zips are made to be pack-compatible, while the hood, which can roll up to offer neck protection and support, works perfectly with a helmet, and is reinforced to stand up hurricane-grade wind gusts. You can pop in the adjustable powder skirt to take the Nordwand from technical climbing piece to full-on ski jacket, too, so you'll only have to take one shell with you for those technical ski mountaineering trips, or just so you can be the most high-tech dude on the mountain and laugh at everyone who goes inside when the temperatures drop and the wind is howling.
The Mammut Nordwand Pro Jacket is made from robust and abrasion resistant 3-layer GORE-TEX. The "Monk hood" system makes this jacket perfect with or without a helmet. A multitude of pockets helps you keep your belongings safe while iceclimbing, skitouring or backcountry skiing.
The Mammut Nordwand puts a stout layer of GORE-TEX Pro Shell between you and harsh alpine environments. With unparalleled detailing and climbing-specific tailoring, this alpine-attack top is beautifully bulletproof. Abrasion-resistant and stretchy, the shell is well suited to any mixed climbing or mountaineering project.
