Mammut makes very nice stuff, but makes big mistakes now and then. I won't even get into the minor things, but focus on the main problem. The Zipper is one of the worse ones I've had. I thought I was doing something wrong but I tried more than several times. So I opened the second one (different color) and it was the exact same thing. Real hard to start, and not easy to operate up and down either. I have a Felsturm jacket from them that I had to put zipper lube on to improve it, but that one was no where near as difficult to get started. Yet it is not the easiest either! So that was the main reason for returning them. Can't imagine trying to get that started when I need it most, if it was that hard in my living room. It did fit good, but...............
One more note on jackets. I think that companies should make two versions of jackets. One with 2 way main zipper, a helmut compatible hood, pit zips & pockets for a harness. And the other one with a standard main zipper, a NON helmut hood, no pit zips and pockets that don't interfare with a packs waist belt or sternum strap!!!

Just what I was looking for. Lightweight, Gore-Tex, waterproof shell. Will be perfect for all uses, hiking, climbing, skiing, and just around town. Got it in black to make it more versatile for everyday use. I'm 5'10" and large is just right to fit some layers underneath. Only knock is that I wish it had some additional pockets on either the chest or inside. Love the pit-zips and easy to use hood adjustments.
