From midwinter ascents in the alpine to swinging ice tools at lower elevations, the Mammut Men's Runbold HS Thermo Hooded Jacket is a mountain workhorse ideal for ticking off ascents in challenging winter conditions. For starters, the waterproof, breathable shell repels everything from high-elevation winds, driving snow, and falling spindrift, while varying amounts of synthetic insulation—100g through and body and 80g throughout the sleeves—offer reliable warmth in damp, stormy conditions. Run a pair of headphones through the attached multimedia pocket once you make it back to base camp, and cinch the adjustable cuffs and hem tight to keep the wind out while get supplies ready for another day on the glacier.

The last few years I have come to really like Mammut gear. Generally it is durable and a good investment. After not being impressed with a Mammut down coat (which I was able to sell), and being underwhelmed by a Mammut synthetic puffy made for a certain "Co-Op" store, I looked to this model as a replacement. So far so good.
I tried it out "around town" for a couple days and was pretty happy. The real test would be on a cold ski weekend at Grand Targhee, Wyoming. Overall I am very happy. It provided ample warmth on a day where there was wind, snow, and temps around 20 F. It kept me dry and provided good warmth for its light weight.
The biggest things I like--this is a refined model by Mammut. It looks sharp, is lighter weight, and has nice zippers that are easy to open. I love that the face fabric is a bit more durable than lighter and easy-to-tear fabrics that a lot of other puffies have. The insulation is distributed such that the core has a bit more insulation and the arms have a little less insulation to allow for a better fit and less bulk. It works. There are three generous pockets that allow you to put in items for a typical day--camera, granola bar, hat, etc. The hood is easy to adjust and fits over a ski helmet easily. Moisture control was very good--I did not drown in my own perspiration.
This coat was warmer than last year's version of the Mammut Cruise HS. That coat, however, has more pockets, a heavier face fabric, a powder skirt, belay zipper on the front, pit zips, and is beefier. This one is lighter and more refined.
The only improvements I would like are pit zips for ventilation and/or a belay zipper on the front for venting. I found that I was able to cool off by removing a layer and unzipping the front just a bit.
The red color is awesome.
A very nice addition to my kit. Very impressed and renews my faith in Mammut!
what is the temperature range for this jacket?
