I got one of these when Amazon dropped the price about a year ago (for a little less than this.)

It's definitely wind and rain proof, but obviously (at this price) it's not breathable so you tend to sweat a little inside it!.

Still a nice jacket.

From the Amazon description - "The Berghaus RG1 is a simple, lightweight waterproof jacket which uses Berghaus' own Aquafoil ® breathable fabric.".

Either it's not very good or they've changed it since you bought it.

Thanks - looking for this for a long time. Ordered.

Also been on sale at Webtogs and Cotswold at this price for some time, its OK for the price.

It's not very good.

Aquafoil isn't great, but still a good price for a well made jacket.

Aquafoil is as good as Goretex and Event but you have to be realistic to what these sort of membranes can do in terms of breathability (ie. not very much).

Pretty good deal

My son has had an RG1 for 3 years (bought it pretty big). He uses it for everything from regular mountain walking to going to school. Great value (still looks like new), but if you believe a £40 Aquafoil jacket has the same waterproof and breathable properties as Goretex or eVent then you'll be sadly disappointed. That's why it costs a fraction of the price.
If you want waterproof, that's easy. Use a bin liner. If you want breath-ability, then that's a whole different game.
Good deal.

Heat, good jacket, decent enough price. Not amazingly breathable but again, what do you expect for the price.

Would be intrigued to know how you are supposed to "top up" the waterproofing on these when it fades though, given it's presumably their own fabric/materials that makes it "special". Anyone?

That one's right up my street because I work at developing such products. You need to keep it clean by washing in a soap based cleaner (like Nikwax Tech Wash) and occassionally reproof by washing in Nikwax TX-Direct.

Apologies if that is spam.....other waterproofing chemicals are available...but these are good because I designed them ;-)

Available at good outdoor shops or Amazon

Can't say fairer than that! Pat on the back for you, sir!

Fascinating - although you probably think your job is boring!
