Way back in 1862, Swiss ropemaker, Kaspar Tanner, started the company that would eventually become Mammut. Nowadays, everybody's heard of Mammut, because they develop and manufacture some of the best gear for climbing and mountaineering on the market. They've also got some pretty rad apparel and jackets for men and women up their sleeve. Let me tell you about it all.
The first thing I think you need to know about Mammut is about their climbing gear. It's a pretty big deal. Mammut has been integrating the newest technology and safety features into their gear, like, pretty much forever. They still do that. I'm pretty sure they always will. Mammut has pretty much everything you need for climbing, including harnesses, ropes, biners, draws, and helmets. Plus they've got accessories like rope bags, chalk bags, and chalk. When I said everything, I kind of meant it. You're gonna want to check out Mammut belay devices, too. They've got this device called the Smart Belay Device. Basically, it's super-safe and has a super-dependable locking feature that makes catching a hard fall very easy, even with ultra-skinny ropes. I'm kind of in love with it right now.
Other things I love, in no particular order, include: Superman ice cream, pockets, sword fights in old movies, and Mammut backpacks. Mammut ski packs are especially cool for backcountry skiing, because they have a dedicated compartment for avalanche safety gear, like a shovel, probe, and beacon. Check out Mammut backpacks for everything from day hikes to weekend treks. There's even a Mammut pack that makes a pretty decent backpack for work or school. Mammut backpacks have specialized back systems, including specialized shoulder straps and hipbelt, for activities like alpine climbing and backpacking, so it's not one of those one-pack-fits-any-activity deals. Which is pretty cool if you ask me.
Finally, Mammut makes some pretty durable jackets and clothing. Mammut softshell jackets are cream of the crop, for sure, and their flexibility makes them utterly awesome for alpine climbing and backpacking. For instance, check out the Mammut Ultimate Hoody: it's made with GORE Windstopper for wind-blocking, water-resistant, breathable goodness. Mammut also has some insulating, compressible, lightweight down jackets that are great alone or under a shell as an insulation layer. Speaking of shells, Mammut waterproof shells are the shiz. No lie. Check out the Mammut Men's Adrenaline Jacket, made with GORE-TEX Pro Shell 3-layer fabric, and a helmet compatible hood. It's pretty much an alpinist's dream come true.
