Initially I bought a pair of these in black for my husband, who absolutely loved them. (So I got him another pair in black, and also got one in khaki.) When I found that they were also available for women, I was thrilled. These are extremely well made. They are also very stylish. They will be great for all kinds of conditions, from snow to rain. We plan to use them for all sorts of casual situations as well, including just airline travel, since they are so cool-looking.

I ordered a few pairs of these pants in taupe colour in size 36 (US 4) and they fit great in hips (36"). Thanks to the hidden inside the waist Velcro, I'm able to adjust them to fit my 24.5" waist (this could have looked somewhat better). The draw cord cinch at the hem should be practical if I choose to temporarily "shorten" the Capri. The location of pockets and the fact that they have zips is great. The fabric is thin and I noticed already that it wrinkles; I don't know if it's breathable. The taupe colour is nice and should be practical as well. The pants seem to be comfortable; I haven't put them through the test yet but plan on wearing them while hiking the Channel Islands soon.

I purchased this jacket to replace a "warm-up" jacket from an on-line retailer, who shall remain nameless. As with all Mammut items that I own, the quality and fabric are excellent. That the sleeves are way too long is also a "trademark" of Mammut - the velcro wrist tab helps mitigate that problem. Other reviewers have indicated the sizing runs large - apparently I prefer a looser fit because I ordered a large, and normally wear a medium (already knew I preferred large from Mammut). Contrary to the product description, I could find NO interior pockets (otherwise rating would have been 5 star). There is also something strange in the photo of the jacket - it shows the arm pocket on the right arm. The pocket is on the left arm on mine. The photo is not reversed because the Mammut label is on the right side of the chest. Weird.

A perfect cut that fits comfortably, yet has plenty of room to move freely--I wore them snow shoeing up Mt. Marcey, the tallest peak in New York, and the freedom to move was perfection, yet streamlined--not bulky. Looks great on, with a figure flattering line.

If you need a well made, compressible, somewhat water resistant and above all practical cold weather jacket it would behoove you to give this serious consideration. In regards to sizing the the thumb loops are a nice addition but the sleeves are a tad too short for them to be used for any extended time. Remember to size up from your normal size as this is a euro cut. And if you plan to layer extensively perhaps two sizes up. I'm 6'2", 165lbs and have a 36" sleeve and bought the XL. I suppose if I had a lower ape index the thumb loops would function normally but as it is the sleeve is comes just shy of mid palm. And I doubt the sleeve would be any longer on the XXL. All in all a super warm, functional and well made jacket for cold conditions.
