BERGHAUS PRO TREK

Review: Winter jackets need to feel up to the job and the Pro Trek certainly does that. Fitwise, it has good-length sleeves and a first-class hem, and the hood is cavernous and very adjustable. The fabric isn’t the softest, but this is a small price to pay for the security it offers. In the mountains it really did the business, keeping off snow and rain, and feeling warm and comfortable even when the hood was up for long periods, and the stiffened peak worked brilliantly in driving sleet in the Black Mountains. The pockets are ideally placed, with enough room for a map, and the pit-zips were much appreciated on long uphills. It’s neither the lightest nor most compact, but it’s light enough, especially considering the protection it gives. Overall, a near-perfect jacket.
