Clean lines with a classy delivery - the Stoney HS from Swiss company Mammut will appeal to skiers who demand high performance but don't want to draw attention to themselves.
The winning feature of the Stoney is not the stripped down design, nice cut, or good articulation but the DryTech material. It feels like a soft shell, stretches like a fleece and performs like a hard shell waterproof.
The rest of the jacket is also pretty impressive and comes with all the class and design features you associate with Mammut. Chest pockets with water resistant zippers, an internal stash pocket with microfiber lens cloth, side pocket with key clip - it's all very well thought out and executed in style.
All in all the Stoney is a great jacket for on piste adventures and the odd day touring out of resort. Whilst you probably won't opt to take it on a spring ski tour as it may be a touch on the warm side, the 2 way pit zips will help keep things cool most of the time.
More Mont Blanc pen than cuckoo clock, the Stoney HS is yet another example of Swiss excellence.
