delmarcoUseless and Expensive P.O.G (piece of gear)!

Voted 2/5

12/12/11 EDIT: Tried to do some ice climbing in this jacket today and for the first time I realized the arms are NOT articulated so the jacket rides up and bunches up all the time even when you are talking and waving your hands!!! I never realized this before when I wrote my initial review before. Now I am sad to say that the Albaron is a useless piece of gear (POG)outside of it being GoreTex Proshell. I just put mine on eBay for $0.99 no reserve because that is what this it really worth if you are an avid outdoor enthusiast. I'm the biggest fan of MAMMUT in this web review forum so it takes a lot for me to have written this!

PRO: Light, Functional, Large easy to access front pockets, fit is precise and economical without extra fabric, classic hood (simple and functional with out the extra flaps, collars and complications), stretch panels and sticky shoulders are AWESOME for wearing with a backpack. Looks good and lots of classic and simple color options (none of that neon yellow orange)

CONS: Nothing really bad here. The Albaron could be a little longer in the front (about an inch or so). Also the price, at $500, this is not cheap even by Gore-Tex Proshell standards. Also a rare and hard to buy jacket for USA consumers.
