On test: Mammut Aconcagua Pro Hooded Jacket
I love a jacket that goes on and fits like a glove. The fit of the medium women’s jacket is super slim. (I am normally a UK 10/12). It feels soft and cosy but also boasts an outer fabric that looks robust.
The hood is also neat fitting and when you have the high neck zipped up the jacket feels really cosy. The arm length is good even for my Mr Tickle-length arms and I can use the thumb loops without losing circulation in my thumbs. (This is unusual for me!)
The back length is also generous with a hem that goes over my bum.
Although warm to wear it’s a lightweight design and feels more like a fleece. In fact, the Polartec Power Stretch Pro fabric is fleecy on the inside, which is why it feels so comfortable and insulating.
There are also two areas of fleece in the jacket, super fleecy and fleecy, to accommodate different warmth areas of the body. So there is a lighter fleece under the arms and on a wide area of the hem, as well as at the hood and neck.
The inner material is a good transporter of moisture so even if you sweat you’ll not end up clammy and damp.
The jacket is also stretchy and doesn’t inhibit me as I stretch out my arms or round my shoulders over. If you are a climber or you are very active in the outdoors the jacket will feel like a warming second skin.
I also like the colours and the styling o this jacket so I’d feel as happy wearing it to the pub as I am while doing outdoor activities.
This is a great mid-layer insulator jacket (for winter) or a versatile outer layer jacket for warmer months. It would serve you well for all kinds of activities, including walking, skiing and climbing.
