A good all around synthetic down jacket for casual and athletic use. Recommended for anyone needing an entry level synthetic down to keep them warm around town or on the trail.
- Warm and comfortable
- Big adjustable hood
- The zipper sucks
Fit & Comfort:
The fit for me is pretty good. I'm 6'4" so my biggest concern was the length of the arm. After trying out a Large Arc'teryx Atom LT I decided I would get XL since the Large had a short arm length and didn't reach all the way to the bottom of my wrist. The chest and waist are a bit big for my skinny body. I think for an average size person the fit would feel normal.
The huge hood has good adjustability. It has two adjustment points in the front and one in the back.
There are also two adjustment points at the waist of the jacket.
It has a decent DWR finish suitable for keeping snow off of it. I don't expect this jacket to handle well in rain but I haven't tested.
Breathability and Moisture:
The Rime Pro performs pretty decently for breathability and moisture wicking. Below freezing it does very well but above that your arms and body feel humid and moist.
This jacket provides excellent warmth. It was -10°F + wind in the morning on time and when I paired it with a shell my upper body was perfectly warm. The only cold part was my face with the hood on because it was the only part that was left exposed.
Depending on the temperature and how much athletic activity you're doing this jacket will either be perfect or really hot. Hikes at 40°F I had to unzip because I was getting too hot, but at 30°F and below I could hike with just the jacket.
The down is Ajungilak OTI Climate (Mammut's own brand) so I couldn't find a lot of information regarding the fill.
When It gets real cold I put my Mountain Hardwear Epic Jacket over it. It may not be the best shell, but it gets the job done when it's below freezing. Combining this jacket + a hardshell is an excellent combo for warmth and weather resistance.
The fabric is very soft and comfy. Initially I was very worried of the fabric tearing because it felt so soft. I went hiking up to a cave which involved rubbing against lots of sharp pointy rocks and branches. I was genuinely worried as I was squeezing through small spaces that my jacket would tear and rip. Much to my surprise none of that happened. I thoroughly inspected the outside fabric after the hike and found NO tears, nicks, rips, or abrasions. The durability of the Pertex Quantum fabric was excellent.
The zippers on this are the biggest downfall of this jacket. The main zipper is two-way and can be an absolute pain in the neck to zip up. You have to make sure that both sliders are tightly held together as you load it into the teeth. Even after months of use I still have difficulties zipping it up sometimes. Other than the front main zipper, all other zippers work fine.
Construction & Durability:
As mentioned before, the jacket held up to abrasion pretty well. Construction is pretty good also. I've only had a few stray strings/frays and that is mostly around the cuffs.
After three months of wear I washed it to get rid of all food scent, campfire funk, etc. I used Grangers performance wash. I used one capful and hand washed it thoroughly. I squeezed all the water out and put it out to hang/air dry outside. It retained its loftiness and the DWR was restored. There were no issues after washing it.
Two hand warmer pockets
Two internal webbed pockets.
