/ Mammut Eiger Nordwand jacket and pants
I used them all last season for Scottish winter climbing. I really rate them but did get a decent discount on RRP. Couldn't comment on usage for what you're asking though. I think last seasons version of the trousers were made of very thin Gore-Tex and probably wouldn't last for ages getting hammered over rock. This seasons ones are made of a more durable material so I'm getting some of them. I think that both the jacket and trousers are well made and designed without loads of naff features. Not sure I'd pay full RRP for them but they're probably a similar price to most flagship jackets now. I've used trousers and jackets from most the major brands and these are definitely my favorites.
Incidentally I'm 5'10" and 11st with a runners build and fit perfectly in a size medium.
Thanks for that Col, some useful info there. I'm planning a trip to Hathersage from Manchester to try them on - I'm 6'5" 88kg gangly so fit is often a killer issue. Have got some other Mammut kit that fits me well though. How much insulation can you comfortably get between jacket and base layer?
An R1 hoody would be fine. I never put anything more than that under my jacket, but I reckon something like a nano puff would probably fit. I use arcteryx phase AR baselayers for winter. I prefer to overlayer with synthetics. I tried a size small but it was too restrictive. I do like close fitting clothing.
They sell them in the square shop part of outside.
Thanks - we seem to share the same taste in base and mid layers so that makes me hopeful about the jacket :-)
