The ultimate balance between protection and mobility.
With a Gore Windstopper membrane, the Mammut Women's Ultimate Hooded Softshell Jacket offers excellent wind-resistance and breathability for climbing. Articulated elbows ensure a full range of motion whether you're sending or belaying, and underarm zippers provide the ventilation and airflow your hard-working body needs. Mammut also added an adjustable hood, pre-shaped thumbholes that stay closed and out of the way when not in use, two side pockets that are always accessible even with a harness or backpack on, and an internal media pocket to protect your phone.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
This jacket is great for multi sports (climbing, ski touring, hiking, etc). I used it on a month long expedition in the Pamir mountains and found it to be super wind resistant and even waterproof. Wore it in every condition (wind, snow, rock, river crossings, etc) and it held up great - awesome jacket!
One side note: it did shrink a little bit when I put it in the clothing dryer (not a bad thing though because has a loose fit).
