Three Mammut Eiger Collection Jackets Snag Polartec® APEX Awards

Top Performance Honors Continue for Mammut Outerwear

Seon, Switzerland and Shelburne, VT (May 31, 2011) – Mammut, the Swiss quality providers of alpine gear and apparel, has been recognized for innovation and quality once again with three Polartec® APEX awards. Polartec, LLC, the developer, manufacturer and marketer of Polartec® performance fabrics, bestows awards to the finest Polartec®-based garments that will be available to consumers in the fall of 2011. A panel of judges selected the winners based on the style, function and fit of the garments as well as the most innovative and appropriate uses of Polartec® fabrics in the designs. Of the dozens of products submitted to the panel for review, Mammut outerwear has been honored with 3 of the total 13 awards.

And the winners are:

Mammut Gipfelgrat Jacket
Constructed from a stretchy, durable Polartec® NeoShell® fabric, which provides the most breathability of any waterproof fabric on the market, the Gipfelgrat Jacket was designed for technical alpine use. Suitable for adventures in a wide range of conditions, the Gipfelgrat provides superior protection and comfort, including a reinforced hood shield to withstand strong gusts of wind, ergonomically tailored front reach sleeves, and front access pit zips for optimized thermal regulation. MSRP $450.00

Mammut Eiswand Jacket
Constructed from Polartec® Thermal Pro® high efficiency fabric with Hardface® technology for increased durability, these technical fleece jackets are a bomber second layer for active mountain sports in cold conditions. Thumb loops prevent sleeves from riding up while climbing, and the use of Gorilla tape reinforces pocket openings. These are two of the most striking fleece jackets on the market today. MSRP $250.00
