Franklin D. Roosevelt once said, “When you reach the end of your rope, tie a knot in it and hang on.” One hundred and fifty two years ago Mammut must been thinking the same thing. Starting out as a Swiss rope making company, they have hung on for the long haul and come to make everything from sail sheets to camping gear and outdoor apparel. We caught up with them at the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market for a peek at their lineup of new products available in the spring of 2015.
If you have ever started to exercise in the cool brisk morning, where arm warmers or a long sleeve is needed, only to find out halfway through your exercise that your clothing is just a bit too warm, check this shirt out. The MTR 201 Tech Shirt for men allows you to instantly turn your shirt into a short sleeve with a quick pull of a loop on the wrist and hook it to your shoulder. Consumers have been able to do this with pants for years, so why not shirts? Quick drying and anti-microbial, this shirt will keep you cool and mostly odor free.
Looking for a new climbing pack? Take a look at the Neon Speed 15 Pack. This 15L unisex pack is based on the ultralight trail-running packs but built a little more heavy duty. Yet, it’s small enough to allow you to shimmy up chimneys so that you won’t be stuck between a rock and a hard place. Pack it full of gear or shove a hydration bladder of your choice in it. This pack is built for stability and due to its breathable design it won’t make you sweat too much.
Maybe trail running is more your gig? Don’t fret! Mammut has you covered as well. Check out the MTR 201 Dyneema Tech Low running shoe. These babies are feather light and will take a licking and keep on ticking due to the abrasion resistant dyneema material. Featuring D30 for impact resistance, Memo Foam for comfort, a gripex™ Sonar Tech sole for superb running traction, and Base Fit for a 360-degree comfortable fit. Plus, they’ll make your friends envious with their stylish design.
Mammut didn’t leave you hikers hanging out to dry this year either. Their Comfort High GTX Surround hiking boot is newly developed, with GORE-TEX SURROUND technology. This boot features all-around ventilation thanks to its cushioning air-permeable layer between the wedge and insole. This lightweight hiking boot features a hybrid shell for stability and shape, integrated arch support with an IP EVA wedge for cushioning, and a rubber toe cap. Multidirectional lugs in two different rubber durometers offer grip on even the harshest terrain provided by the new Sonar comfort sole by gripex™.
