Hailing from the heart of the Swiss Alps, Mammut has been outfitting alpinists and mountain athletes with innovative gear and clothing for nearly 150 years. With classic alpine test pieces like the Matterhorn, the Eiger and countless other 4,000-meter peaks literally just outside the door, Mammut's mountain legacy runs strong. Mammut has a long tradition of working closely with top alpinists and athletes to refine and create the best outdoor products possible. You will find technical jackets, climbing hardware, ropes, backpacks and headlamps that have been developed and tested by some of the worlds' most committed athletes. Mammut understands that the mountain environment demands clothing and equipment to perform without question. Their commitment to the best materials, technologies and innovative designs is evident in their use of leading materials including:
Mammut was an early pioneer of softshell materials for hiking and climbing pants. Their continued commitment to breathable softshell fabrics in jackets for skiing, climbing and hiking can be seen in the popular Ultimate Jacket and Ultimate Hoody. The Gore® Windstopper® soft shell fabric delivers an awesome blend of breathability for aerobic output and windproof weather protection. Of course, your clothing system is only as good as your base layers, and that's why Mammut developed Symbitech long underwear tops and bottoms for men and women. The merino wool and polyester blend maximizes wicking and breathability by body mapping the materials to suit the location on your body. Mammut's All-Year underwear tops and bottoms perform on the trail in every season.
Rock and Alpine climbers are sure to recognize the Mammut name. Mammut was founded on making high-quality climbing ropes, and their climbing hardware and harnesses are recognized as some the world's best. Altrec.com carries a variety of harnesses for women and men, quickdraws, carabiners, belay devices and ropes for mountaineering and rock climbing use. We've got 8-, 9- and 10-mm climbing ropes for all of your alpine and rock pursuits. You'll even find climbing gear for kids. The super cool Elefantito climbing harness and Tripod 2 helmet for kids are just the ticket to get your kid out rock climbing.
You can count on Mammut for technical mountaineering backpacks and day climbing packs, too. Set out for technical ascents of Colorado's fourteeners or set yourself up for an overnight ascent of Mount Rainier with one of the Mammut's Heron backpacks. They are designed for comfortable load distribution when you are hauling climbing hardware and overnight gear. Pivoting hipbelts and fully adjustable suspensions ensure all-day comfort.
Finally, if you need a lightweight headlamp for backpacking or camping, check out Mammut's S-Lite or S-Flex models. The burn time and light-patterns of these small headlamps rival that of any headlamp on the market, and you can turn your headlamp into a lantern with Mammut's cool X-Shot Ambient Light kit.
Seasoned alpinists and dedicated hikers alike will appreciate the quality and functionality of every Mammut product we carry here at Altrec.com.
