announcement by V12
Mammut Stratus Hybrid Hooded Belay Jacket is a classic, anyone who has had one doesn't buy anything else. The Ventex dryzone outer which is antimicrobial and UV-resistant also has hydrophobe/ hydrophile properties which will keep out 90% of the weather. This incases the Quantum Pertex, which is a superlight, top-grade, extremely rip-proof microfibre. This grade of microfibre is primarily used in down jackets as the web density and equipment cannot take the smoothness of the down away. Made of 100% Polyamide.
The Stratus jacket's innovative material mix makes the most of the advantages of a Fiberfill insulation layer and Soft Shell. A Fiberfill layer in the front and rear protects against over-cooling in icy temperatures, while the Soft Shell on the arms and shoulders provides good breathability and water-repellency.
With its fully helmet compatible hood and generous cut this is an ideal jacket for belaying, allowing you to stay warm and focused when you need to be.
- Drawcord hem, adjustable using one hand
- M.A.P. hood for quick adjustment and good visibility
- Articulated elbows
- Underarm zip for additional ventilation
- 1 napoleon pocket accessible from outside
- 2 front pockets
