Truly waterproof shell jacket
My rating: 5/5
A totally waterproof, lightweight shell Goretex jacket. Tested in a mountain downpour!
This is a great jacket, long length in arm and body. It has two outer zip pockets (wallet and phone stayed totally dry), and a one way full length zip. It has a hood with a firm rim, which stays in the right place when wearing, and 2 sets of toggles for hood adjustment. The hood does not fold away into the jacket, and is not separable.
The cuffs have a velcro strip, for adjusting the opening size.
It folds up nice and small for carrying “just in case” in a backpack.
I love it. Its smart enough to wear as a normal jacket in case of rain, though as it is a shell jacket it does not keep one warm. Perfect jacket to wear with my Berghaus Goretex trousers.
I bought this jacket from Amazon.com in May 2017, and see that less than 1 month later it is no longer available on there (I needed a month to test it, before writing this review!) However it is still available on the Berghaus website, so you can get more info from there if you want it – or ask questions on the Comments below, and I will answer if I can.
Amazon.co.uk have a Berghaus Paclite 20 jacket, which looks the same, so I have added the link above. I certainly don’t guarantee it is the same jacket, but do wonder if the 20 should read 2.0 ??
