Saw these jacket's while picking up some boots today

They are not the Gore-tex version but are made with Berghaus' AQ2 material, which they claim is breathable

Had a quick look over them and they seem to be reasonably made considering the price

The are fitted with YKK waterproof zippers, which is a bonus at this price end

They deal is instore only and only applies with their discount card. If you don't have one they can be purchased instore for £4 and are valid for a year.

£4.95 needs to be added to the price for those like me who can't get to a store. Not quite so hot for us. Warm only.

I'm fed up of these waist length jackets. Why can't we have knee length ones anymore?

Ski jacket cleaning is a must to keep your jacket breathable and waterproof. Technical waterproof/breathable ski jackets usually use a two or three layered construction consisting of an outer woven nylon or polyester fabric, a microporous polyurethane coating or laminate applied to the inside of the outer fabric, and a fabric lining on the inside. The outer surface of the jacket is also treated with a DWR (Durable Water Repellent) finish. The DWR makes water bead up and roll off your jacket. Keeping the water beading off your shell will keep your shell breathing at its maximum level. Your jacket must be clean to keep the water beading up, so wash it.

Follow the manufacturer`s directions on the care label and don`t be afraid. Body oil, grease, sap, sunscreen, wood smoke, cigarette smoke, air pollution and any kind of dirt will clog the pores of your jacket and decrease the performance of both the interior laminate or coating and the exterior DWR. Many people are hesitant to wash their jackets and fear that the DWR finish will be ruined. In reality, just the opposite is true. Washing your jacket in a residue free soap or detergent and drying with either a dryer or an iron will give new life to the DWR.

A residue free laundry soap is required (as in not optional). All soaps and detergents are not alike. (Note that soap and detergent are just two names for the same thing.) A residue free detergent is required to properly clean and refresh the DWR properties of the jacket. Most common laundry soaps leave residues behind - perfume, fabric softener, whiteners, UV brighteners, etc. All residues are bad for the hydrophilic properties of your jacket and will clog its pores, thereby reducing water repellency, breathability, and moisture transfer. Residues will cover the fluorpolymer in the DWR which will allow water to spread out and soak into the fabric instead of beading up and rolling off.

Buy a special residue free fabric wash for your jacket. Residue free detergent will make insulation like down, Thinsulate, and Hollofil fluff back up. There is a list of readily available products at the bottom of the page that are recommended by ski jacket manufacturers.

Nikwax is the best stuff available. They do a cleaner, and a re-proofer to help keep things more waterproof. Quite expensive, but good. You need to make sure there's no washing powder or conditioner left in your detergent drawer. See http://www.nikwax.co.uk/en-gb/index.php

You'll always pay a premium for Berghaus gear.... but at this price it can't be bad
