Mountain Equipment Impellor Jacket
Mountain Equipment's lightest waterproof shell, the Impellor is well suited to any weight conscious activity from hill running and ultralight walking to minimalist mountaineering, says Dave Saunders
The Mammut brand has always been synonymous with quality design and construction. No expense has been spared nor detail neglected in creating this Eiger Extreme strictly Limited Edition range.
Both jacket and pants are individually numbered and produced in only small volumes, making each one unique. The range has been meticulously designed by alpinists who demand the very best performance while they’re chasing their dreams; and the extraordinary quality is reflected in the cost.
When your clothing is performing perfectly, you can focus all your attention on the adventure. The Mammut Nordwand Pro LE range is so well designed to you might just forget you're wearing it. At 610g the jacket is amazingly light for such a durable piece, thanks to two different weights of 3 layer-GORE-TEX® Pro fabrics. Super tough 150-denier is placed in the areas subject to the most wear, making it incredibly robust yet breathable.
Two adjustments of the Monk Hood system ensure it will hug your head with or without a helmet, following your movements with eerie precision to maintain optimum visibility. "Dani-Arnold" buttons can be used to firmly close the jacket while keeping the front zip open for ventilation, or to keep the collar out of your way when the zip is open - a neat design feature requested by the Mammut Pro Team.
All the features you need and no more
Pockets are where you need them – placed high just above the harness line, with a further sleeve pocket branded with the Limited Edition logo. The high quality YKK VISLON main zip runs both ways for easy access to your belay loop. A detachable powder skirt completes the package and can be connected to the matching Nordwand Pro LE Pants, making the jacket equally suitable for skiing and those pioneering, powder-wading approaches.

Made of the same robust and yet breathable 3-layer Gore-Tex Pro materials as the jacket, the pants are also reinforced in areas subject to the greatest wear. Edges are further reinforced with Dyneema, and there are extra patches on the instep to protect against crampon and ski-edges.
The special wide waistband adjustment guarantees a perfect fit and can be conveniently adjusted from the outside. Full length zips make the trousers easy to pull on over mountain boots as well as providing ventilation when you need it.
Like the jacket, the pants are designed for total ergonomic freedom of movement – you won’t know they’re there.

If you decide the Eiger Extreme Limited Edition range is for you, then we think you’ll be blown away by the quality of the materials and the design.
