Berghaus Freeflow 40 (2014)

£90.00

The Freeflow range of rucksacks from Berghaus have been popular for many years, and in the latest versions they get an adjustable back length so you can be sure that the sack fits you. Of course others may fit you straight off the peg, so this itself isn’t necessarily a big advantage. However, the Freeflow back system does hold the ...

Berghaus Vapour 20 (2014)

£60.00

This is a very unusual rucksack from Berghaus, designed to meet the needs of those taking part in single-day or overnight racing events. The weight of 688g includes a 73g water bottle, which is stored in the base of the rucksack in a dedicated pocket. The back system is stiffened so it does not distort when loaded fully or partially, ...

Berghaus Voltage/Electra (2014)

£200.00

The Berghaus Voltage for men and Electra for women feels nice and robust compared to other lightweight jackets and that makes it instantly appealing for hillwalking as it means it should be better able to trap air around the body than softer and more flexible materials. The fabric is Gore-Active Shell, a well proven development from the house of Gore ...

Berghaus Prognosis GTX (2014)

£100.00

The Berghaus Prognosis GTX weighs just 876g (pair, size 11), making it ideal for fast and light outdoor action or anyone simply wanting to save weight. The upper is made from mesh with a Gore-Tex waterproof lining and there are overlays of material to increase its durability. But it is still probably not going to be able to withstand the ...

Berghaus Fastrack (2014)

£120.00

The Fastrack jacket is designed for ‘high-octane trail sports’, according to Berghaus, although at 547g (size L) it’s quite heavy for moving fast. The fabric is Berghaus’s own AQ2, a material with good waterproof and breathability lab results, although higher-priced jackets do offer better performance in this respect. There’s a mesh lining and pit zips to help manage condensation. The ...

Berghaus Verden 65+10 (2014)

£120.00

The Berghaus Verden 65+10 is very much a traditional backpacking rucksack, with twin main compartments, bellows side pockets and lid; but it also features Berghaus’s Biofit back system, which allows the back length to be adjusted by the user, meaning you can get the sack to fit accurately while wearing it. It can be argued, of course, that if a ...

Berghaus Helvellyn Pant (2014)

£100.00

The Berghaus Helvellyn Pant is made from Gore-Tex with a mesh lining. This fabric is generally more comfortable in the long term than some lower-priced materials, due to Gore-Tex having higher waterproofness and breathability performance. As there’s a mesh lining, any condensation that does appear is held away from your clothing, so overall they’re more comfortable than most lower-priced options. ...

Berghaus Freeflow 30 (2014)

£80.00

This redesigned version of the Freeflow 30 features some changes. Chief of these is a large diagonal zipped pocket across the front and the addition of Berghaus’ Biofit system – enabling you to adjust the back system quickly and without fuss to your own back length. It’s a good tool and it is extremely supportive when on. Some would question ...

Berghaus Freeflow 30+6 (2014)

£85.00

An exceptionally comfortable, robust and intuitive rucksack. The adjustable sliding harness is easy to master so you really can tailor it to your height. Bright internal panels mean it’s easy to find what you’re looking for, and it has a removable internal divider: you can shrink the main section for smaller loads (and use the lower section for something you ...

Berghaus Pravatile Hooded Jacket (2014)

£75.00

There are a lot of hooded fleece jackets available but not that many under £100, so at £75 the Berghaus Pravatile Hooded Jacket does have some appeal. It is made from an attractive stretch fleece that offers a good level of insulation for general hillwalking. It is not very wind-resistant, which makes it ideal for wearing under a waterproof because ...

Berghaus Ramche (2014)

£300.00

The Ramche is one of Berghaus’s MtnHaus products, designed by mountaineers for top performance in the fiercest conditions. It features hydrophobic down, which resists water better than normal down, so it’s better able to retain its insulating performance when wet. Offset baffles reduce heat loss from the body core, while square baffles on the upper arms and stitched-through baffles under ...

Berghaus Mtn AQ Hardshell Glove (2014)

£45.00

The Berghaus Mtn AQ Hardshell Glove has most of the features of gloves twice its price. It’s built around a nylon shell with a very thin layer of leather in the palm for extra durability. You get a Berghaus AQ waterproof lining inside and a fibrefill layer of insulation. The glove did not feel as warm as higher-priced options, though, ...

Berghaus Explorer Ridge GTX (2013)

£125.00

Berghaus describes this boot as being designed to be comfortable straight from the box. I probably wouldn’t say it was the most comfortable option, but it isn’t bad either. Berghaus also calls it a 2-3 season boot due to the amount of flex in the sole and that description is accurate, but don’t let it put you off. The Explorer ...

Berghaus Civetta (2013)

£280.00

The Berghaus Civetta uses the latest version of Gore-Tex and this new Pro version is said to be more breathable than previous Gore-Tex fabrics, so it’s about as good as it gets. The jacket design is fairly plain but functional. You get an averagely short body with a main zip that is very chunky, allowing easier use because it’s less ...

Berghaus Hurricane/Kirkby (2103)

£180.00

The Berghaus Hurricane/Kirkby stands out as it is much longer in the body than most, making it a rare commodity and a very practical option for tramping across moors, hills and mountains in wet and windy weather. As the body is so long, you can also access the base pockets relatively easily while wearing a rucksack with a hipbelt, which ...

Berghaus Deluge (2013)

£50.00

The Berghaus Deluge is a competitively priced overtrouser with a good set of features to make hillwalking comfortable. The AQ2 fabric is a ripstop nylon with a polyurethane coating for waterproofness and breathability, while a loose lining ensures they are not too clammy. The side zip extends to the hips so it is extremely easy to whip these on and ...

Berghaus Cristallo/Teton (2013)

£160.00

The Berghaus Cristallo for men and Teton for women is designed for winter use and so it employs a heavier weight of Gore Windstopper fabric than some other jackets, with a thicker insulating layer on the inside to give it extra warmth. To further improve winter performance, the cuffs have an inner liner with thumb loops, and the hood is ...

Berghaus Bioflex Light 50 (2013)

£120.00

The Berghaus Bioflex Light 50 tips the scales at the same weight as 2012’s £140 Bioflex 45, so you’re getting more pack for the same weight and less cash this year. However at 1630g this pack is still the heaviest in our test. The Bioflex back system comprises of a rotating hipbelt, so the body of the pack stays still ...

Berghaus Hydrapak (2013)

£23.00

The Berghaus Hydrapak is a fairly simple and lightweight offering. The opening is of the fold-over and slide-lock closure variety, and because this goes across the full width of the bladder it provides great access for cleaning and drying the bladder. The tube just pushes onto the bladder outlet, and is quite stiff to attach or remove. This of course ...

Berghaus Electra (2013)

A really lightweight and high-performance jacket in Gore-Tex Active Shell. It’s got a cavernous hood that cinches down firmly over your face to keep out driving rain, and a high, snug, fleece-lined collar, which feels great against cold skin and traps warmth really well. The design is simple and fuss-free, with two deep, mesh-lined handwarmer pockets well placed for access ...

Berghaus Prognosis II GTX (2013)

New for 2013, the Prognosis is a trainer-style walking shoe that will definitely appeal to the fast-and-light brigade. At just over 700g, it’s one of the lightest shoes tested yet the synthetic exoskeleton does a good job of holding the foot in place and the high mesh content makes it feel cool and very breathable. Waterproofing is provided by a ...

Berghaus Saltoro Jacket (2013)

A very lightweight jacket made with supple, four-way stretch soft shell. The flattering, figure-hugging design traps warmth really well and breathes brilliantly, and there’s a lovely high collar which locks in warmth. There are really versatile, stretch cuffs which fit nicely around the wrists yet pull up easily too – really welcome when the going gets warm. It performs brilliantly, ...

It weighs just 920g (pair, size 11), so it’s ideal for ‘fast and light’ activity as well as general travel.

Berghaus Vinson (2013)

£120.00

The Vinson is made from Berghaus’ own-label AQ2 fabric, which is a 2-layer material. It doesn’t claim to be as breathable or as waterproof as Gore-Tex, but it is a much more competitive price. The Vinson is a notch longer than some others here, but it’s still pretty short. The main zip gets an external stormflap to keep the rain ...

Berghaus Long-Sleeve Zip-Neck Technical T-Shirt (2013)

£32.00

As far as general-purpose base layers go, the Berghaus Long-Sleeve Zip-Neck Technical T-Shirt ticks all the boxes. It’s a good price, it’s reasonably light and, because it’s synthetic rather than merino wool, it’s relatively low-maintenance. The long sleeves and high collar keep the breeze at bay on a cold day, and the long chest zip allows the wearer to cool ...
