I think the weathers now got to a point where I don't feel quite as silly talking about new gear for Autumn/Winter 2011. For the past few months we've been doing sneak previews and reviews on everything we're expecting in this Winter, but it doesn't seem quite right doing a sneak preview on an 800 fill down jacket when it's been 30°C outside! Over the last few weeks the weather has been a little more in keeping with the gear we've been looking at!
Anyway, enough of the stereotypical British fascination with the weather, time to take a look at a few new pieces from Berghaus that we've received in this week.
First up, a new 3-in-1, The Men's Arisdale 3-in-1 Jacket. It's been made with a tried and tested 2L Gore-Tex Performance Shell, for excellent waterproofing and breathability. It's got a roll away hood, so if it's not pelting it down you can hide it away (until it does decide to start pelting it down). Enhancing the jackets breathability, it comes with pit zip ventilation. There's also ample room to store all your accessories and essentials with two zipped hand warmer pockets, an external chest pocket, internal security pocket and two zipped hand pockets in the inner fleece jacket.
Second in line is the Berghaus Men's Frenay Jacket. This ones going to come in very handy when the going gets cold and blustery. It's been put down as a general purpose mountain jacket, but theres a plethora of other circumstances you can use it in, first couple that springs to mind is keeping warm at the Rugby or Football. It has been made with 2 layer Windstopper Active Shell for total windproofness and a optimum breathability. Inside the coat theres a synthetic Primaloft Insulation for fantastic warmth. I've got a Primaloft Jacket myself and I completely swear by it! Even the jackets fixed hood has insulation for a cocoon of warmth.
The jacket also features; two way YKK water resistant zips, 3 external zipped pockets, 1 internal zipped pocket, adjustable and elasticated hem drawcord and bonded self fabric cuff tabs with hook and loop adjustment.
Back again for Winter 2011 as well, The Berghaus Akka Down Jacket. A very popular 600 fill down jacket, it's more than ideal for the incoming colder conditions!
