This jacket keeps me comfortable with the combination of Gore Tex Active and pit zips. Also, Mammut did a good job of sizing the neck area. I found that with other hard shells, it is difficult to close the zipper when layering over a light puffy. Not so with this one. It closes easily. The zipper does have one issue which knocked a star off the rating. It is hard to get started and also to separate once fastened.
One last thing, these run small. An extra large fits me like an Arcteryx large size shell.

This is the very first time that I’m writing about Mammut (or any European brand for that matter) that it is smaller than expected. I became accustomed to sizing Small in US = Medium in Europe, but that is not the case with this Aenergy jacket. As stated on this jacket’s tag (I saw it once I received the jacket): US Small = Eur Small. This has never happened before. My husband, a 6’0” tall lanky American, measures 36-37” in chest and this jacket in size S barely fits him. He can wear it with a short sleeve under but a long sleeve or a thicker shirt would not be comfortable with this jacket. I wanted to return it but he likes it so much (black-blue colours) that he wants to keep it. BTW, sleeves are comfortably long, the fabric seems to be of a very good quality, and the warmer pad in the back is a nice feature - it’s a great jacket. If by any chance you bought a Medium and is too small for you, please return it and I will happily buy it.
