Our Verdict

Tend to overheat on summer walks? Hiking shirts can still be for you – Mammut’s Aada was one of the lightest and breeziest shirts we tested out. That said, the tailored cut won’t suit all body shapes.

  • Super light
  • Work-ready looks
  • Antimicrobial

Against

  • Tailored fit won’t suit all body types
  • Not very warm

Mammut Aada: first impressions 

Hey, good looking! At first glance, you might think the Mammut Aada was culled from a work wardrobe – a smart check makes the Aada look like a cut above your average women’s hiking tops

Available in either a long or short-sleeve cut, this shirt is more tailored than many other hiking shirts, so it’ll suit slim or athletic builds best; women with bigger hips and boobs may need to choose a boxier design in order to have a good range of movement. The plus side to that slimmer profile is that the Aada fits very nicely under fleece jackets. If it does suit you, you’ll like the lightweight, easy-care polyester material, which is easy to wash, quick to dry and doesn’t need ironing to look smart.

Mammut Aada: on the trails 

When we tested this shirt out on a multi-day walk it definitely stood out for its breathability, and that refreshing lack of weight means you’ll barely notice you’re wearing it. If the weather turns chilly, Mammut also make a Winter version of this shirt in a thicker brushed material. 

The Aada has decent sun protection of UPF 30+, and the fabric has an antimicrobial treatment that reduces odor, too – ideal if you’re going to be hiking far from the nearest washing machine for days on end.
