Nordwand HS Flex Hooded Jacket

The Mammut Men's Nordwand HS Flex Hooded Jacket is a performance-oriented, athletically-designed hardshell made for mountaineering and ice climbing. Its three-layer construction includes a Gore-Tex laminate for robust waterproofing and breathability fit for hard fitness, and the fabric is remarkably thin, light, and easy to pack. Mammut added Gore-Tex Stretch under each arm to amplify freedom of movement on the climb. The hood provides complete coverage when it's stormy out, and the tall, gusseted collar has laser-cut ventilation paneling around the neck and where you breathe to keep you comfy when you're sweating. Vertical Motion Construction fits this jacket with articulated sleeves and a gusseted collar to move with you up the mountain. Mammut also fitted the Nordwand with High Reach Technology so the jacket stays tucked underneath harnesses and backpack straps when you're climbing. The Nordwand's bright lining increases visibility when you're traversing cloudy glaciers.

This jacket has a trim fit, like the flex pants. There is room for a base and a mid layer - as you would expect for alpine climbing and hiking, but you won't easily wear much more than that underneath. Despite the trim fit, there is no binding or lifting when you move your arms around. I liked all the features, the material, and the clean design of this jacket, with one exception: the hood. It has a single elastic drawcord that cinches at the back. There is indeed room for a helmet, so much so that without a helmet on and try as I might, I could not find a way to properly adjust the hood, and the visor kept falling down over my eyes. This was a deal breaker for me, and I returned the jacket. Too bad. It really is a nice jacket.

Where Is The Jacket??

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

This jacket really surprised me! It felt like I was putting on some futuristic gear, it is such a cool jacket. When you slip on the jacket, you don't notice the jacket is on you because of how lightweight and flexible it is. It definitely sits close to the skin, but it feels like it's a part of you. The jacket moves where you move. The bi-elastic GORE-TEX under the arms and around the back has such great mobility. I do say there might be a day or two for a break-in period for that material to form to you and the zippers to slide with ease. Though hardly a complaint, this jacket is seriously amazing!

How to Measure:
For best results, take measurements over your underwear.
Measure under your arms, around the fullest part of your chest.
Measure around your natural waistline, keeping the tape a bit loose.
Measure around the fullest part of your body at the top of your legs.
Using pants that fit well, measure the crotch seam to the bottom of the leg.
