The Pierra Ment’ Hoodie is specifically designed for efficient ski mountaineering. Four way stretch material, external pockets for skins, and a balaclava-style hood will have you up and down the mountain quickly and comfortably. The full-zip hoodie from Millet uses a proprietary Vueltex Knit fabric that is flexible, breathable, and resistant to abrasion. The Pierra Menta-inspired top is great for racing or touring. Thank you Millet for solving our clothing problems.

Questions & Reviews
Anyway, the PDG is a bit lighter (372 grams, Large) and the PM (461 grams, XL and 424 grams Large) is a somewhat burlier fabric and just a tad warmer. I go 6' and 175 lbs and I wear a large in the PDG but an XL in the PM. I could get away with a Large there but it binds in the arm pit and across the chest a bit (all those push ups and pull ups making me MASSIVE!). The XL fits great and the sleeves work even with my +3 ape index. With the PM I do miss the beacon pocket of the PDG which is a handy feature.
