Mammut Broad Peak II 2011

The Mammut Broad Peak II weighs 366g (men’s L); 110g of 750 fill power 90/10 goose down; Pertex Quantum shell; jacket can be stashed into chest zip pocket; two non-zipped hip pockets. But no hood, so additional hat required on cold days; no cuff adjustment; not as warm as heavier options.

The Mammut Broad Peak II is exceptionally light; good for milder conditions and as a backup when hill-walking, but others are better for really cold winter mountain rests.
