Berghaus Capucin (2014)

£160.00

FeaturesThere are a lot of nice touches here, but some annoying elements too. The hood has face drawcords, but no volume adjustment at the back. The three pockets on the outside are placed reasonably well for access with a rucksack on, but they aren’t quite big enough for an OS map. The cuffs get internal elastication, though, which is neatly ...

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 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 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 Mera Peak (2012)

£260.00

The Mera Peak is a classic that gets better with age. This latest incarnation is a comfortable, breathable, quick-drying waterproof that's great to wear – but it's quite a lump to carry. The face fabric is soft yet tough, and the internal lining makes it comfortable against bare skin. The hood is absolutely brilliant: deep and adjustable and almost impenetrable ...

Berghaus Ignite Hoody (2013)

£150.00

Probably the best-featured jacket in our test, the Berghaus Ignite Hoody offers great value for money considering what you get. It’s the only option with a two-way zip – important if considering using it with a harness, or as a belay jacket – and it also has a soft chinguard, a fully adjustable hood, premium Primaloft One insulation, a water-resistant ...

Berghaus Kibo (2013)

£220.00

The Berghaus Kibo has been available for some years now and it remains unchanged for 2013 except for a 10 per cent rise in price over last year. The upper of the boot is made with a mix of fabric and leather with some very modern styling. There is a full rubber rand to protect the boot from abrasion and ...

Berghaus Tarazed GTX (2012)

£160.00

The Berghaus Tarazed GTX is very light for a boot in the 3-4 season category, and in part that is due to its not being quite as stiff as most other boots in this class. But you do still get a robust, supportive upper to protect the foot on scree as well as snow, and there is a Gore-Tex lining ...

Berghaus Hurricane/Kirkby (2012)

£180.00

The Berghaus Hurricane/Kirkby (men’s/women’s) has a longer body than most jackets and while this may not be fashionable it is certainly a practical solution to keeping dry when hillwalking and backpacking. The benefit of this extra body length is that you can access the two base pockets while wearing a rucksack with a hipbelt, which is often not possible with ...

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 ...

Berghaus Paclite II (2012)

£160.00

The Paclite II is everything a lightweight waterproof should be, and it comes at a relatively modest price too. At 375g, it’s certainly light, yet the Gore-Tex Paclite fabric, combined with great design, means it will withstand just about anything thrown at it. The rollaway hood is deep and adjustable (although it loses a mark for a rather flimsy peak) ...

Berghaus Velum (2012)

£200.00

Tidy seems to be the watchword with the Berghaus Velum. The four hood adjusters are discreetly placed below the neck and drape downwards out of sight, while the releases are cunningly hidden within the hood and are relatively straightforward to operate. The hem adjuster is likewise tucked away on the inside of the jacket. There are no pit zips, which ...

Berghaus Kibo 2012

£200.00

The Berghaus Kibo has held its price below the competition for a while now, and even this year it is only a tenner up on 2010 while most boots are £15 or £20 higher in price. So in terms of cost it is a winner. The boot itself has an upper based on a mix of fabrics and there is ...

Berghaus Bowscale

£160.00

A 2-layer Gore-Tex jacket suited to lower level walking. The less technical styling does mean that you won’t look like a lost mountain guide when out walking the dog. The face fabric is pleasantly soft and isn’t too noisy. There aren’t any vents to draw away the heat, and so it does tend to be warmer than most. The face ...

Berghaus Extrem Couloir Mountain Pants 2011

£200.00

The Berghaus Extrem Couloir Mountain Pants are serious mountain trouser suitable for the most testing environments. Made of Gore-Tex Pro Shell, they are a far cry from stiff, rustly overtrousers of old; the fabric is soft, supremely comfy and flexible, and Cordura patches on the inside ankle and knees offer good abrasion resistance. The full-length side zip aids taking the ...

Berghaus Mount Asgard Smock 2011

£220.00

With outdoors clothing, it’s on-the-hill performance that really counts when you’re battling against the conditions to reach the summit of a mountain. But it may come as a surprise to hear that not all outdoor gear is actually designed with performance high on the agenda, as price and fashion can be what determines if a product is a hit or ...

Berghaus Extrem Duvet 2011

£200.00

The Berghaus Extrem Duvet is almost the ideal duvet for really cold winter nights on the hills. It comes with good-quality down and is very warm, unlike some of the lighter jackets here. That added insulation does mean this is a little heavier than some at 708g, but I’d rather go for maximum warmth than minimal weight in winter. The ...

Berghaus Kibo 2010

£190.00

The Berghaus Kibo is a great-value boot that is holding its price well again this year. The upper is a mix of leather and synthetic materials that protects a Gore-Tex waterproof lining. A rubber rand extends around the whole boot to ensure durability. The upper is very stiff so you can crank down crampon straps as well as protect the ...

Berghaus Teton

£170.00

This is a technical looking jacket with Gore Windstopper fabric giving the Teton great weatherproofing. Inside, the fleece lining is warm and could almost be mistaken for animal fur with its longer pile. Although there is a great feel to the fabric, there is not as much stretch as in many others. Also, the number of zips on it means ...

Berghaus Temperance 2010

£230.00

The weight of the Berghaus Temperance is particularly impressive, and when combined with the price it offers amazing value. For your 468g and £230 you get a top-notch fabric in the form of Gore-Tex Pro Shell. The jacket then has a fairly conventional layout of a front zip and two large chest pockets. The chest pockets are high enough to ...

Berghaus Paclite 2010

£150.00

The Berghaus Paclite multi-activity jacket has been popular for many years. The material is Gore-Tex Paclite, which has the benefit of being very packable and lightweight as the name suggests. The jacket has a good set of essential features. Firstly the fit is comfortably close while the freedom of movement in the sleeves is superb. The tail is extended for ...

Berghaus Dru 2010

Designed as a lightweight Alpine jacket, there are stretch panels of Gore-Tex Paclite used down the sides of the Berghaus Dru as well as down the sleeves to allow a closer fit without restricting movement. Standard Paclite is used elsewhere. The result is a very lightweight jacket but there are also lots of features here to make the Dru practical ...

Berghaus Paclite II

£150.00

This Paclite II proved very weatherproof on bad days, yet exceedingly easy to carry when it wasn’t needed. The rollaway hood is easily adjustable and usefully deep, and the peak is stiff enough to withstand some fairly blowy conditions. The main opening is protected by a substantial external stormflap and the DWR coating worked well throughout the test. The cuffs ...

Berghaus Couloir/Abruzzi 2010

£200.00

Berghaus has been producing gear for British hill-walkers and mountaineers since the mid 1970s, so they should know a thing or two about keeping people dry. The Couloir trouser (the Abruzzi is the women’s version) is designed for mountaineering where unrestricted movement is required but it is equally at home on the fells when a walker just wants to be ...
