Mammut Grade Verglas 2010

The Mammut Grade Verglas weighs 398g (size L); Gore-Tex Paclite; two large pockets; a slightly more durable fabric than some; third small chest pocket; hood movement, freedom of movement in sleeves and fit are excellent. But hood peak is not wired; Paclite does not control condensation as well as some other fabrics; other jackets are lighter and lower in price; pocket access is easily obscured with rucksack belts.

The Mammut Grade Verglas is a good Paclite jacket, but there are similar jackets that offer slightly better performance.
