"Great organisation, great activities, great filming - hats off!"
... this might sound like an advert, but it is actually a quote from Danielle, from Germany. Along with 200 other testers from all over the world, she met Mammut and our team athletes for an unforgettable weekend of fun, action and the big Mammut Alpine Underwear Test. Absolute alpine. Absolute fun!

«The photo shoot 2400 m up the mountain with 200 other people was a mind-blowing experience! Sure, my feet were blue with cold, but I wouldn't have missed this event for the world!»
Good food, thrilling tales, chilled-out music - that evening by the fire was a long one. Even so, early next morning saw 200 keen Alpine Underwear testers make their way to the photo shoot location. Once there, the order rang out: Clothes off! Down to their underwear. The exact alignment of the lineout was a painstaking affair. Photographer Röbi Bösch and Art Director Gabriel Peisker barked out a succession of orders - orders that had to be obeyed! Everyone was excited to be taking part in the venture - everyone, that is, apart from the weather! Even so, through pure strength of collective will, the clouds eventually parted. The result: 200 testers discovered through personal experience just how special Mammut Alpine Underwear is for mountaineers.
The Eiger Glacier starts on the southern flank of the Eigerjoch at an altitude of approximately 3700 m. It then flows down between the Klein Eiger (alt. 3472 m) and the Mönch (alt. 4099 m).
The 1st Alpine Underwear test with 200 human guinea pigs
«I came from the Netherlands especially to be here, and I can tell you - this weekend has been really worth the effort! The Alpine Underwear feels great! For me, Mammut is the best there is for mountaineers. I always find myself choosing Mammut.»
«The photo shoot was a real highlight for me. Everyone was great and we all found it really fun!»
The human body consists of different temperature zones which react differently to sporting effort, heat and cold. While some areas cool down quickly (e.g. the arms, thighs, knees and calves), others (e.g. the head and upper body) rapidly produce superfluous warmth. The body therefore needs to regulate the different temperature zones individually to maintain its normal temperature of 36.5 °C.
«This happening is awesome! I love the whole different mix of people from all corners of Europe and the amazing activities.»
«Slacklining is so cool!»
The slackline set is a complete set, containing all the components you need to safely set up a slackline in a few simple steps. As well as the actual slackline, the set consists of a ratchet with a steel carabiner, two tree slings, tensioning and fixing straps as well as a webbing clamp with wedge. The full set is supplied in a slackline shoulder bag, which can also be used for transportation and storage.
«It's a great feeling to be up there, gliding above the camp!»
«The mood in the camp and during all the activities was great! It was a real pleasure to be chatting and climbing with all these people from all over Europe.»
«The fact that some of Mammut's top professionals were there too was fantastic. The advice Stefan gave me has really helped.»
Remarks from a professional
«The asado was the icing on the cake!»
Another traditional form to mainly roast the meat, used in the Argentine and Chilean Patagonias, is with the whole animal (specially lamb and pork) in a wood stick nailed in the ground and exposed to the heat of live coals, called asado al palo. [...]
Can't wait for the next Test Event? Stay tuned!
Mammut fans become Mammut models. Good food, exciting stories, relaxing music – and a long night around the campfire. Undeterred, early the next morning, 200 incorruptible Alpine Underwear testers set out for the film shoot. On arrival at the top, the command was: take your clothes off! Down to your underwear. It took a great deal of patience to set up the line. Röbi Bösch, photographer, and Gabriel Peisker, Art Director, shouted out instructions from the sidelines. Everyone played their part with enthusiasm, apart from the weather. However, thanks to a combined effort of will, the clouds were banished. The result: 200 testers experienced for themselves why Mammut has developed Alpine Underwear specially for mountaineers.
