Hymir Hardshell Smock
LIGHT, NOT SILLY LIGHT
A very lightweight, technical hooded smock for focused, streamlined, stripped down lightweight performance.
Lightweight often just leads to wet. That's silly light. Our Hymir smock is the lightest Polartec® NeoShell® mountain jacket in the world, but is built with zero compromise to its waterproofness. NeoShell® is also the world’s most breathable waterproof fabric.
That’s clever light.Buy Now
VERY LIGHT, VERY PACKABLE
The palm sized stuff sack clips to a harness or disappears into a rucksack lid.
3 layer, ultra lightweight, micro-ripstop Polartec® NeoShell® fabric. NeoShell® has a highly aerobic air permeability with advanced wicking capabilities to keep moisture vapour away from your core. Prior to NeoShell® the elusive balance between waterproof and windproof protection and true breathability had yet to exist in a hard shell fabric.
AS STICKY AS
Triple reinforced stitching ensures the super sticky VELCRO™ will not detach from the garment. Hypalon® cuff tabs are harder wearing and longer lasting than fabric cuff tabs. Scooped cuffs protect the backs of hands.
Anti-snag hem draw cords discourage snagging when harnesses and gear is worn; a problem encountered with outdated loop draw cords.

Jöttnar’s über lightweight Hymir is a minimalist’s dream – a superb specialist mountain hardshell.
Many could argue this isn’t a trail running jacket, but I say this is one of the best kept secrets thus far. For people looking at taking on more extreme style races, where the conditions look, excuse me for this, shit, and you know you will be exposed for hours, I would have no issues picking the Jottnar Hymir over something that weighed 50% less.
For the men the competition was fierce, with some fantastically light and capable jackets competing for the Editor’s Choice award. We plumped for the Jöttnar Hymir Smock though, for its wonderful fit, almost perfect feature set and excellent breathability.
