  Size Chart

Designed for ski mountaineering, the Pierra Menta II jacket is built for superb freedom of movement while maintaining a comfortable body-climate. A hybrid construction featuring Millet XCS 100 softshell, Airtastic super breathable stretch material, and Polartec Alpha insulation, this jacket puts the right material exactly where you need it. It will climb, scramble, skin, and bootpack with uninhibited freedom then lock-in warmth and block-out wind on the descent. The hood can be stowed out of the way in the collar, and then quickly deployed when things get chilly. A jacket this well thought out and versatile leaves little to be desired. That’s a great thing when you want to be more focused on your objective and the skiing than what to wear.

  • Two great skin pockets on the chest keep transitions quick.
  • Close fit moves with your body with no excess material.
  • Elastic hem keeps jacket from riding up under your backpack.

Questions & Reviews

Question from Paul
Happy New Year to Skimo.

I am wondering how this jacket will or would work as a crossover for Nordic skiing and AT? Do you have a thought on this?

Size wise I am 5’9” and 135 lbs short waisted with long and older legs.

Answer from Emmett I

Nordic and AT are quite similar with regard to layering. This jacket will work great for both!

Question from Josh Jacquot
Curious how big the chest pockets are on the small. Probably not big enough for fat skis, I'd guess? I'd need to fit skins that are 137 mm at their widest point. Big ask, I know.
Answer from Emmett I
Hi Josh,

You're correct, you'd have a hard time fitting wide skins into the chest pockets of the Pierra Menta Jacket. They're plenty big for race skins or something in the 75-85mm range, but 137mm would be very tight.

Question from Greg Deem
Looking for a skimo racing top. This is appealing, sizing question. I’m 5’10”, 170lb. Chest 44”. Size chart puts me in XXL. This seems odd since I wear medium 75% with the occasional large. But I like this top and maybe the XL you have in stock would work?
Answer from jbo
Hi Greg, the XL should fit just fine. Note it's a European size, so more like a US Large, but if you usually wear a medium it's no problem. It's not skin tight so I wouldn't worry about the slight discrepancy in chest measurement.
Answer from Greg
Overall fit is OK. I would not want it tighter in the shoulders/ chest and the sleeves are right. But the waist could fit 2 of me. I guess I don’t have the classic euro build. Good enough though. It is quite warm, good and bad.
Answer from jbo
Thanks for the feedback Greg, sounds like you have a physique built for lycra ;)

Kurt P (used product regularly)
I upgraded to the PM2 from the older PM.
Ive used it on about 10 missions to date and it is a fantastic piece.

Temps have ranged from mid teens and windy (new England winter) to a cold, clear windless 9f this past sunday.

Obviously temp control was managed via zipping up or down the main zip. But was mostly comfortable in all ranges.

The windy raw day a few weeks back I wore the jacket + craft baselayer and on occasion a gust would hit me just right and Id feel chilled. Probably should have chosen 1 level warmer garment for that day.

Fit is pretty solid. Im 5'11"ish and 148-150lbs. 38-39 chest. I went Medium but might be able to wear the small too.

Otherwise a great piece in my skimo clothes quiver.
