Berghaus Velum (2012)

£200.00

The Berghaus Velum is made from Gore-Tex Active Shell, an extremely light and breathable version of Gore-Tex that is specifically designed for fast, active use when condensation control and weight are the priorities. One of the drawbacks of the material is that it is not as durable as other Gore-Tex fabrics and so Berghaus has reinforced the shoulder area to ...

MOUNTAIN EQUIPMENT OGRE

£240.00

Review: The brilliantly named Ogre has good-length sleeves and hem and an easily adjustable hood. The fabric is quite soft so it’s a comfy and quiet jacket. It’s a light jacket so packs down very small, but still proved totally waterproof and the hood was a godsend on one very bad day in North Wales. The pockets are perfect, with ...

Paramo Cascada

£180.00

A great fit with well-designed sleeves and a good combination of Velcro and elastic at the cuffs. Hem and waist drawcords help fine-tune fit and hood was easy to adjust. Comfort-wise, it’s hard to knock the Cascada, which is cut from a wonderfully soft and rustle-free fabric making it a real pleasure to wear. Good breathability, making it really pleasant ...

Montane Quick-Fire

£175.00

A scooped hem stops it riding up when at full stretch, while Velcro adjustable cuffs are excellent. The eVENT fabric felt comfortable and proved relatively rustle-free and the hood was huge, although adjusted by Velcro not drawcords. Spot-on in every department. Light and easy to carry when not required, yet comfortable and completely bomb-proof when the heavens open. And the ...

Berghaus Deluge Overtrouser

£40.00

These are definitely the best waterproof overtrousers for £40 that we tested. In particular they get a long leg zip, making them very easy to fit over boots. That zip also has a double stormflap with press studs, so it will keep out far more water than an exposed water-resistant zip for example. An even nicer addition is the ability ...

Regatta Chandler II

£30.00

These waterproof trousers from Regatta are a good fit, with a functional drawcord/elastic waist and an easily adjustable Velcro tab at the ankle. The Isotex fabric is lovely and soft and they have a comfy lining, too. Not the best to pack, but offer good waterproofness and breathability. The Isotex fabric is tough.   Colours: Midnight, blackSizes: S-XXLFabric: Isotex (polyester)/polyamide ...

Berghaus Cornice/Glissade

£160.00

This is a well-proven general purpose waterproof that is good for hill-walking as well as general travel and walking the dog. It is made from the new Gore-Tex Performance Shell fabric, which has good performance for the price. A wide brushed polyester collar lining adds valuable comfort, as does a mesh lining. This is a longer jacket than most, and ...

Berghaus Paclite Trek

£160.00

The longer length of this lightweight jacket is very appealing, particularly as it is lighter than many longer options! The material is Gore Paclite, which was a very popular lightweight fabric, until Gore Pro Shell came out in late 2007. You get additional abrasion-resistant sections around the hem and shoulders too. Arm movement is superb as the hem and cuffs ...

Mountain Equipment Kongur

£260.00

The Kongur has won Trail’s winter jacket test for the past two years and for me it is still the best, particularly as it now comes with new Pro Shell fabric and as a consequence less weight. The jacket has a little more length than many here, making it ideal for remaining protected from a winter storm. The front zip ...
