Thursday, November 15th, 2018

Mammut displayed this updated version of their Realization Shorts at the Outdoor Retailer Winter Market.

Mammut – Taiss Light Mid GTX

Thursday, August 9th, 2018

One of the hidden gems I found at last month’s Outdoor Retailer Summer Market is the Taiss Light Mid GTX by Mammut.

I spied it as I was walking through their booth but unfortunately, as I didn’t have a media appointment, no one could answer any questions about it.

However, I do know a few things. This Gore-tex lined boot is intended for multipitch rock climbing, via ferrata, classical alpinism, mixed and ice climbing. This means it’s crampon compatible. I also know that it weighs 555g (size 9). It’s built using their Georganic 3D Technology, a three-dimensional cut of the boot, developed directly on the foot. Additionally, it features a carbon fiber missile for rigidity.

This is All-Black model is the Men’s version. The Women’s variant is all White. Imagine a Mid-height mountain boot in all white for use by mountain troops.

Mammut iPhone App

Friday, March 11th, 2011

Swiss outdoor manufacturer Mammut Sports Group AG has developed an iOS app primarily for recreational use called the Packing List. Best of all it’s free.

The Packing List app is designed to help you pack for a variety of high adventure activities like climbing, mountaineering and snowshoeing. Although each list template is assembled by the pros, you can customize it or even create new packing lists. What’s more, you can invite team members to share your list for collaborative trip planning and add new items not already loaded into the app.

Goodbye Raichle, Hello Mammut

Tuesday, August 12th, 2008

In 2003 Mammut brand purchased Swiss footwear mainstay Raichle. Although Raichle turns 100 next year, Mammut found that they weren’t getting the market share under the Raichle brand name that they were seeing with the Mammut clothing, hiking and mountaineering lines. Starting this year, boots produced by Raichle will carry the Mammut name.

Many of you may have worn Raichle combat and mountaineering boots. No word on how this may affect their black boot line.
