I chose Mammut for it's excellent reputation, using only the highest quality fabrics. I was sick of the noise and rigidity Goretex products have, and I am very happy with Mammuts drytech fabric, far superior to anything else I have owned. The price was right as I received an extra 20%. Thanks to STP...

Got this for my husband who always wears a large. It was definitely too small for him to layer anything under it since it has no insulation. I found a different Mammut jacket that is lightly insulated for a cheaper price. I think there are better values out there for this type of shell jacket.

This is a very nice jacket with nice features, namely the very long pit zips for dumping heat. The pockets, hood, etc. are all nice features. If I were looking to buy a HARD shell then I would have been totally happy with this purchase but this was supposed to be a soft shell. The material is not like a soft shell at all….not soft, no stretch. I already own a hard shell and was looking to buy as soft shell so I'm sending this back. It's a shame I'll have to pay to return something that is clearly not as advertised and described. I would only recommend this to a friend if they were in the market for a hard shell with nice pit zips and got a deep discount/coupon. Otherwise this coat is way overpriced.

This jacket is a weather barrier on par with my Arcteryx Sidewinder AR. While it is a little lighter than I like for a winter jacket, I am very satisfied with it for a lighter weight backpacking jacket. Durability seems good for the weight. I have yet to use it in a downpour but water rolls off like a duck's back. I put the jacket under a two foot column of water for about five minutes without any moisture penetration (good enough at the very least for moderate rain). This jacket runs a little slim in the torso and arms, so if you have to pack yourself into other jackets, you might consider sizing up. Overall, no complaints.
Best Uses: Backcountry, Hiking, Skiing, Snowboarding

I bought this for my son. He has worn it skiing and snowboarding. He insists its warm, but it is hard to beleive since the lightweight material. He wears a north face fleece layer underneath. I am disapointed that at this price range there are no features ie: wrist and waist gaiter. He is happy with it.
Kevin sorry for the delay, with the holidays coming up we are getting slammed with questions. First question, yes the Molar ski jacket is truly waterproof. Second question, SOFtech is Mammuts "in house" softshell technology. This is how they describe it "SOFtechâ„¢ combines the second and third layers of clothing to provide effective protection in a whole range of weather conditions. The wear-resistant materials have excellent stretch and good breathing properties, ensuring an optimal body temperature. Two different types of SOFtechâ„¢ fabrics are available: for the protection models, the focus is on protection from wind and weather, while for the comfort models the emphasis is on breathability". I hope this helps, I'll keep my eye out for any other questions you may have!
