MAMMUT Kira IN Down Jacket, Vest & Awesome Hat

mammut kiraI love discovering new brands–new to me brands. The last couple of weeks I got to take Mammut Kira IN Down Jacket and Vest for a spin, and I’m pleased to say they are wonderful! First let’s talk about the Jacket. This is a toasty 650-fill has soft cuffs at the end of the sleeves that keeps the wind and snow out as well as an adjustable hem for the same purpose. Two outer zip pockets and an inner zip holds your stuff and an extra high collar keeps your neck warm.

Check out the Mammut logo. Normally, I’m not a logo person, I like my stuff to look generic, and there is one brand in particular that I avoid because they plaster their logo all over their stuff. But Mammut’s is subtle and I love the unique woolly mammoth and pop of color on the sleeve and chest. Find the Mammut Kira IN Down Jacket HERE.

The Kira Vest for me is even more fabulous at the moment because the weather has required that just-right sweet spot of a vest with a wool or fleece base layer underneath. This 650-fill vest comes down over my bum a little and keeps me toasty warm. Like the jacket, the vest screams quality. There’s two side zip pockets and an inner zip pocket which is 100% necessary and often neglected in vests. You can adjust the hem with a cinch-cord if you need to tighten up for wind. The neck comes up nice and high like the jacket, and it’s just an all-around awesome vest. I find the sizing to run true on both the vest and the jacket by the way. Find the vest HERE.

If you get either of these jackets, you have to get this matching merino wool beanie hat. It’s just as vibrant in person as it is online and it compliments the contrasting red on the jacket and vest. Even if you don’t need the outerwear, this hat is must. I’ve barely stopped wearing it since I got it, the soft fleece along the inside is cozy, it’s the perfect weight, extremely comfortable, and it’s just a fun, uplifting design that brightens up a gloomy winter day. Everywhere I go, people are complimenting me on it. Also, because it is so bright, I think it would be  awesome for travel and outdoor adventure so that your travel mates can spot you easily.

This was my first introduction to Mammut, and I couldn’t be more impressed. Check out their website for tons of other wonderful, high quality options for both men and women.
