oops sorry - nicked the pic from there - cheers juliet

Nice looking jacket and can't go wrong with Berghaus quality - may have to invest

I love my current Berghaus jacket and need another one after it got snagged on a fence (very annoyed). Not 100% in love with the colour but have gone for it anyway.

Does not mention the Fill Power (Down Unit for warmth/compression) or the weight of the fill. I assume it is 600 or 700 Fill Power not 800 or 800+ but Berghaus is usually OK though as with all the big names stingy with the filling. You can make your own down jackets/sleeping bags/quilts for cheap but have to follow procedures (vaccum cleaner pipe and bags) as the stuff gets everywhere and know how to baffle. You also need a rain jacket on top as the worst torture in the world is wet down which doesn't dry for ages. An Epic/Goretex/eVent top shell is ideal for top breathability though expensive but could settle with cheaper as most folks don't need to stay in the rain that much. The best (weight to warm ratio ie: FLO factor) synth fill (easy to DIY too as with all synths) is currently developed as Climashield Combat and XP in the States and is better for rainy situs but still not as warm as 800+ Down nor as compressible. Saw a £50 Goretex rain jacket somewhere but might not fit over this. Maybe not hot but still a good buy, in this country anyway by ~ £20-30.

Hot from me.... I really like the look and quality of this.

You also need a rain jacket on top if the outer fabric is cotton which would be strange for this general market & I don't think it is. If cotton outer then need a rain top defo as the worst torture in the world is wet down which doesn't dry for ages.

It says it is 100% cotton shelled - if what you are saying is true - then this will be poo in the rain.

Yes looked around, it's cotton outer and modified my post

In northern or really cold areas (not England as such) having shells with no rain tops lets one to interchange and layer to suit underneath and choose various tops which can be a great benefit as it allows excellent breathability in dry conditions when active and gives unlimited choice to mix and match but for a general public market in England which is near the gulf stream and mild nor mountainous you are sort of right. Though you could choose a rain top from a couple of top British companies (rare) like Rab for quality or cheaper and more compressible (apple size) from Montane:
montane.co.uk/pro…ite

Bit of hassle for Joe Public's needs here though.

Why is there absolutely no info about these anywhere - not even on the Berghaus site?

Anyway a cotton outer would suggest that this is not windproof. So I don't know how it would be better than the "Blast" model which is similar, waterproof and windproof but retails for less
