The Mammut Ultimate Alpine SO Hooded Jacket Men is the ultimate soft shell jacket. Made from the new, highly breathable GORE WINDSTOPPER material, which features Light Rain Resistance, the Ultimate Alpine is not only windproof; it also offers greater protection against light rain and snow than normal WINDSTOPPER products. All the seams have also been bonded from the inside with waterproof tape. All the drawstrings run around the inside of the jacket to give wind as few contact surfaces as possible. The hood has a high-cut collar and functions as a protective shield against wind and weather. Ventilation zippers under the arms increase the breathability and complete the functional design. The Ultimate Alpine is the ultimate jacket for activities for which weather protection and breathability are important: ski touring, mountain touring and ice climbing.
