Amazon - Berghaus RG1 Jacket (Black only) £32.24 (Large and XL only now)

Found 14th May 2010Made hot 14th May 2010
Been after a cheap RG1 jacket and found it on Amazon! It appears that only the black colour is at this price.

Features:
Velcro adjusters at cuff.
Full legnth zip double storm flap.
Rollaway hood.
Hem drawcord
Two zipped handwarmer pockets.

Specification:
Aquafoil® has been developed as Berghaus own outdoor performance shell fabric. Aquafoil® technology provides durable waterproofing during outdoor use. Its hydrophilic moisture transport technology allows perspiration to escape, whilst a DWR (Durable Water-Repellent) treatment increases performance as it delays saturation of the face fabric during prolonged use. Aquafoil® is suitable for use at all levels of exertion, making it ideal for multi-purpose use.

Sorry...I dodn't check the sizes :oops: Seems only available for medium to XXL

HOT for XL men like myself.

I'm not exactly huge and needed an XL when I bought a berghaus jacket in the past! Good price although I believe they are quite short in length.

very good price,thanks.

Thanks for posting Angry Bear and also thanks cdm22 for sizing tip.
I have ordered XL Black.

I'm large normally, but the odd item needs to be XL...what to do, what to do....;-)

Reading the reviews, seems it ISN'T "breathable", and has net pockets, which I hate. I'll give it a miss, then.

Price seems to have gone up on Amazon; cheaper elsewhere if you Google

Black in XL ordered. Not sure how 'waterproof' their Aquafoil range is thought - any ideas?
Nice find though for £32! :thumbsup:

It's very good...not as good as Goretex, but for this price, I don't think that you can grumble! I had the same jacket many moons ago,and it had seen some hiking action, so I needed a replacement. This is nearly half the proce of what I paid for it originally!

Nice one.... I would hold out for one of their Pac-lite goretex, but don't think I can stretch to that !!

thanks

Nice jacket, I have one of these and it kept me dry through tropical deluges

I wonder when Amazon will start increasing the price of this jacket:roll:

Ditto....it was my intention to get the paclite jacket as well, but after some of the deals on HUKD, I had to make a comprimise! :-D

i always thought Berghaus was from somewhere like Norway.

turns out its from the North-East of England.

Just what I was going to look for this weekend. Great as I had a spare £20 Amazon voucher from Nectar. Thanks.

That's their offices. They are owned by Pentland (Speedo, Hunter, Brasher, Ellesse, etc.)

For good value jackets that every Tom Dick and Harry haven't got - have a look at the Keela range - quality is first class and it's great value - Amazon has some great deals

I tend to wear a medium, but as I will be using this as part of layering, i.e. wearing a fleece underneath it, I opted for a large.

Great deal, ordered

Berghaus do make some serious gear, but this is in their street wear range, trading on reputation. I used to have one and I got very wet. Probably OK for a while when new, but not even close to Gore-tex or similar.

:thumbsup:Thanks, needed a new one, my old HH is 8 years old.

thanks ordered

As I've said, I had been wanting to get this for a while and tried the jacket on at Blacks. The problem was that the medium fitted like a glove, so not really useful when I am out hiking, which is why I bought it. If you know your chest size, best to compare it on the Berghaus website for sizing. Alternatively, if you can, rush out to an outdoors shop and try the jacket on, then buy it from here. I hope the information helps

Check out the Marmot Mica. Should be cheaper than the Pac-lite and out performs it too. Read the reviews.
I've had one for a year now and am very impressed. Weighs 185g!

Nice one. Been looking for a decent jacket for the great english summer !

£32.24 delivered. Great price for a M, L, XL or XXL in Black, heat and rep added.

Thank You.
