For the times when your midlayer becomes a multi-purpose coat the Mammut Men’s Eiswand Guide ML Jacket fits the bill. With a wool interior and a hard face the Eiswand protects from wind and insulates while you’re on belay. Once you start climbing the Eiswand’s stretchy materials lay-up and underarm gusset won’t restrict movement so even the furthest throw to the next move isn’t unreasonable. The high collar and chinguard prevent irritation and also stand up tall to the elements while thumbholes and elastic hems protect the rest of your torso from wind so you can make the send and continue to be warm in the Eiswand. Its Pontetorto Merino Tecnowool fabric also wicks moisture and dries quickly to keep you comfortably dry when you work up a sweat.
