Getting a morning tour in before work is the bread and butter of your winter soul. Keeping things light and simple is your mantra. The Mammut Men’s Nordwand Advanced HS Hooded Jacket tends to agree, weighing in at less than a pound and trimming away the extra features that only weigh you down. Gore-Tex Pro is waterproof and breathable, so it keeps you dry whether the snow is falling or you’re doing double time to the top. Underarm vents let you dump anything extra during your ascent, and if you’ve decided to incorporate a climb into your routine, this shell is designed to function smoothly with one equipped. Kick-turns and pole plants are performed with ease thanks to Mammut’s mobility technology making your every movement a breeze, and should that breeze turn chilly, cinch your hood and hem against the winter wind.
