Within this collection, you will notice a variety of vibrant colours as well as a mix of neutral tones. The inspiration behind the colours of this latest collection was a microscopic view of ice and rock. The vibrant Sunset, Ice and Sunrise colours represent the rays of light being refracted in ice crystals while the gray tones of rocks are represented by the Marble colour. The vibrant orange inner on the GORE-TEX® Pro Shell products are an ode to the roots of the Eiger Extreme collection and part of the Mammut High Visibility Backer™ technology.

Mammut High Visibility Backer™

This particular technology is found in the Nordwand and Ultimate Eisfeld products. The inner backer these jackets are made up of a bright orange coloured material which, when reversed, can be easily used to identify the wearer in poor visibility. Developed by GORE-TEX®, this high visibility backer™ was created exclusively for Mammut. 

Mammut High Reach Technology™

The way a jacket is tailored is an important feature when it comes to comfort and performance. This is especially true for climbers and where the High Reach Technology™ comes in. This technology keeps jackets from riding up when the wearer is stretching upwards as they climb. Instead, the jacket will stay in place ensuring optimal weather protection from the roughest conditions. Mammut High Recah Technology™ is a complex sleeve-gusset construction which is based on a three-dimensional pattern that was tested and tailored on climbing athletes.  

Mammut Gaiter Solution™

A new gaiter system ensures the gaiter stays in place during every movement and is secured whether you are wearing ski boots or mountaineering boots. This Gaiter Solution™ features an extra-wide hook and loop fastener, a three-way snap button adjustment system, new elastic material and a rounded shape. The smallest details can make a world of difference and Mammut’s focus on this Gaiter Solution™ is a perfect example of their dedication to performance. 

Mammut Single Pull Hood™

The main idea behind the Single Pull Hood™ is efficiency and ease. With a single pull, you can get the perfect fit and maximum protection. Helmet-compatible, lightweight and easy-to-handle, the Mammut Single Pull Hood™ is another valuable technology found in the Eiger Extreme collection.

Mammut Phase Map™

In order to provide lighter more sophisticated products, Mammut has added their Phase Map™ technology. This integrates multiple material properties into one fabric resulting in an overall lighter product that boasts clean and functional aesthetics ideal for the needs of alpine athletes.

Mammut Vertical Motion Construction™

As a climber, you want gear that moves with you and provides optimal protection wherever you are. Whether you’re scoping a line at the bottom of a wall or skillfully making your way to the top, the Vertical Motion Construction™ allows you to move comfortably without your gear hindering your movements. Based off of human anatomy, Mammut has used elastic material in areas to promote ease of movement, provide a body-hugging fit and enhance performance.

For the adventurers looking for the highest-quality products to withstand the grueling conditions of the alpine, the Mammut Eiger Extreme Collection is designed for the challenge.
