- Improved ventilation and freedom of movement is facilitated by the jacket’s articulated sleeves and 2-way pit zips provided with added mesh backing.
- The two-way front zip is designed to keep out water and cold efficiently.

The Purpose of the Mammut Tomyhoi
The Tomyhoi is the kind of jacket that athletes, sportsmen, and people who want to look cool on holiday will always go for. Durable, stylish and built to be practical, it’s ideal for snow sports and other sporting activities associated with wintertime.
Also, the jacket is windproof and waterproof, making it a good choice for outdoor activities like hiking, enjoying the outdoors with pets, or jogging in the winter.
The windproof and waterproof Mammut Tomyhoi features 115G synthetic fibers in the body and 100G in the sleeves and hood. This level of synthetic insulation goes beyond what most similarly priced jackets can offer. Competing jackets like the Mammut Whitehorn and GS6 are considerably more expensive.
The nylon fabric and lining fabric is also of a higher quality than most similar jackets, and the back length can adequately protect the wearer’s hips. There are 12 different sizes available for the Tomyhoi, ranging from 30 to XL and XXL.
What Do Other People Think?
Reviews written by buyers are generally positive, although there are a few complaints about the Tomyhoi. Some have considered similar Patagonia jackets to be a better choice when it comes to buying a ski coat, and the lack of a powder skirt is seen as a detriment by skiing enthusiasts.
However, the value of the jacket both as a casual coat and for various sporting activities during the coldest of winter months has been acknowledged by almost all reviewers. The main advantages being the jacket’s lightweight construction, good fit, handy interior pockets and ability to withstand cold winds of over 20 mph without much difficulty.
Most buyers would happily recommend the Mammut Tomyhoi as both a casual jacket and a coat used for sporting and athletic activities. Its superior insulation and ability to retain heat in sub-zero temperatures are undoubtedly some of the main reasons for this.
