Berghaus Hydroloft and Hydrodown Insulation

Born in 1966, Berghaus is one of the most respected British brands in the world – let alone the outdoor industry. Drawing on almost fifty years of experience to create their award winning products and technologies; they are true leaders of innovation.

Berghaus are able to create premium quality, reliable and user friendly products because they focus on just that – the needs of the user. Being outdoor enthusiasts themselves, they are able to use that insight to create products that work exactly as you need them to. Combine this with their inclusion of some of the outdoor industry’s most successful technologies, and a few of their own innovative creations, and that is what makes each and every Berghaus product.

True to their nature; Berghaus aren’t slowing down any time soon. In fact, they have just brought to us two excellent new insulation technologies; Hydroloft and Hydrodown.

 

HydroLoft-Tech

Hydroloft

Hydroloft is a synthetic insulation system designed to offer exceptional breathability and superior comfort whilst maintaining a lightweight design. It offers water resistance, is fast drying and performs extremely well in wet conditions.

Hydroloft works by using super-fine fibres which mimic the structure of traditional down insulation, creating small air pockets that allow moisture to escape and trap heat. The main benefits of this type of insulation compared to traditional synthetic and down alternatives are increased breathability, lighter weight and lower bulk, water resistance and fast drying.

It is able to perform better in wet conditions than traditional methods of insulation thanks to the synthetic fibre construction. These fibres do not absorb water, and combined with a water repellent outer layer can dry quickly to perform well in adverse conditions.

H-down TECH

Hydrodown

Hydrodown insulation offers an innovative new take on nature’s traditional method of insulation. It offers the same benefits of natural down insulation without any of the downsides; enabling you to stay dry, warm, comfortable and travel light.

Hydrodown is created by giving goose down a durable water repellent (DWR) treatment. This ensures that is better able to resist the effects of wet weather, dries quickly and retains insulation properties even when it does become damp. Ensuring that like traditional down it has an excellent warmth to weight ratio that makes it perfect for cold weather expeditions, but it is better prepared to perform when the weather becomes wet.

The key benefits of this type of insulation are that it is compressible and packable, breathable, has a great warmth to weight ratio, repels moisture, retains lost and dries fast for quick recovery. This means that Hydrodown is the perfect option for mountain weather and cold weather adventures where you need to travel light and fast but don’t want to compromise on performance or comfort.

 

Here at Webtogs.com we are proud to be offer a wide range of Berghaus products that boast the advantage of their expert knowledge and innovative technologies; including Hydroloft and Hydrodown insulation.

Berghaus Asgard Tribrid Mens Jacket

Berghaus Asgard Tribrid Mens Jacket

The Berghaus Asgard Tribrid Mens Jacket is a versatile insulating layer perfect for comfortable performance on alpine adventures. It utilises body mapping technology to offer greater comfort and insulation in the areas that you need it most. Hydrodown insulation is used in the areas where heat retention is key, Hydroloft insulation is used in the areas where breathability is most important and fleece fabric is used on the arm where freedom of movement is essential. This body mapping construction means that the Berghaus Asgard Tribrid Mens Jacket is able to adapt to the needs of different parts of your body; ensuring that everything works for optimum performance.

Some surprising news reached us last week; Brasher, one of Britain’s most loved footwear brands, is to ‘join together’ with fellow UK Brand, Berghaus. The result of this will be that the Brasher brand will effectively cease to exist, and selected Brasher boots will be sold under the Berghaus name from Spring/Summer 2015 onwards.

Primaloft jackets – Keeping warm in the wet British winter.

It’s said there are just two certainties in life, death and taxes, but I’ve long thought there’s another certainty that should be included in this elite list – if you’re out in the British hills it’s going to rain. In summer it’s not a problem, with hardshells, softshells, packlite and a million and one choices to pick from, but in winter it’s not so easy.

Outside it’s that most perfect of walking days; that combination of cool blue, cloudless skies, a chill in the air and an inviting crispness to the ground. It’s a day just made for your favourite down jacket and a camera, but you just can’t avoid the fact that this is Britain and no matter what it looks like now, chances are the rain will find you and down and rain don’t get on well.
The alternative to down is Primaloft, a synthetic fibre that keeps working even when wet. Being synthetic it doesn’t quite match up to down for pack size and weight, and isn’t quite as warm ounce for ounce as a filling, but it’s got definite advantages when it comes to the British climate. Primaloft is water resistant, and even when it does get wet it retains the majority of its insulating properties and dries quickly. It’s often overlooked, but Primaloft garments are usually machine washable, whilst down means a trip to a specialist cleaner.

With autumn already upon us and winter creeping up we thought we’d give you the low down on four of our top name Primaloft jackets, all under £150.

Mountain Equipment Fitzroy Jacket
Price: £134.99
Weight: 620g/22oz
Features: Turn-with-you adjustable hood, 3 external pockets, Primaloft 100/60g combination for weight saving.

Mountain EquipmentFitzroy
The Fitzroy’s been with us for a couple of years now, and picked up the “Best in Test” from Trail recently with its combination of Primaloft and Drilite Loft. The main body is filled with 100g Primaloft One – the highest grade Primaloft, with 60g filling in the arms to give your core warmth but keep that extra flexibility in the arms, and keep weight to a minimum. A double layer of Primaloft in the hood completes the insulation, with windproof, water resistant Drilite Loft covering the critical areas and a more breathable UltraSoft face fabric everywhere else.
The Mountain Equipment hood is legendary, and justifiably so with a good volume adjuster that’s truly helmet friendly and a stiffened peak that stays stiffened in the wind. The same attention to detail has gone into the draw cords for the hem which now have “capture points” to prevent snagging, and Velcro cuff fasteners you can manipulate with gloves on. You get four pockets, 3 on the outside and an internal zipped map pocket. The lower pockets are set a bit higher and a bit further in from the sides than on the other jackets making them easily accessible with a rucksack on.
Our View:
Value for money water resistant synthetic insulation that keeps working even when wet. Well positioned pockets and excellent hood from a name you can trust.

 

Berghaus Combust Jacket
Price: £143.99
Weight: 775g/27oz
Features: Highly tear resistant outer, close fitting baffles, Primaloft PL1 filling, Raptor hood.
Berghaus Combust

The Combust jacket is from Berghaus’ Extreme range and features Primaloft PL1 filling and a coated nylon outer. Instantly recognisable the Combust’s outer shell uses a DWR and PU coating to keep the water out, with a unique combination of 15 denier nylon and 50 denier yarn making it highly tear resistant. The innovations don’t stop there, though, with a DWR coating applied to the lining and unlike the other jackets on test a storm flap over the main zip.
The Combust features an enormous, but fully adjustable hood that will happily take a helmet and still close up tight against the elements, and an elasticated internal pocket ideal for keeping your drink above freezing perched on a Scottish winter ledge. The two hand warmer pockets benefit from a soft-touch lining and the cord zips are just long enough to use gloved, though lack any form of toggle on the end. Once on you can’t fail to notice the sleeping bag style baffles in the main body which pull the jacket into you for a closer fit. The close fit also applies overall, and if you’re planning on using it as a traditional belay jacket to be thrown on over everything else when you stop then removed for setting off again, then you’ll probably need to step up a size.
Our View:
Innovative tear resistant construction combined with top quality insulation and a close fit give a very warm product. Not the lightest jacket on test, but it is cut a little longer and the generous hood will take a helmet with ease.

 

Rab Generator Alpine Jacket
Price: £139.99
Weight: 520g/18oz
Features: Technical version of classic Generator, Pertex Endurance shell, Roll down hood, Extra length.
Rab Generator Alpine

The Rab Generator jacket is a legend in its own lifetime, renowned for its versatility in typical British conditions. The Alpine takes the best of the Generator’s features and adds to them. Like the Mountain Equipment Fitzroy the Generator Alpine uses 100g Primaloft One in the main body and 60g in the arms, but the outer shell is made from hard wearing Pertex Endurance.
Unlike the other jackets on test the Generator Alpine features a helmet compatible hood that you can roll down and secure when not needed. You only get two external pockets and one zipped pocket on the inside, but the back is slightly longer than the standard jacket and zips are water resistant. The Pertex Endurance fabric gives a more heavyweight feel to the Generator Alpine on the outside, but on the inside Rab have chosen to stick with Quantum for a softer feel.
Our View:
The roll down hood makes this an ideal jacket for winter belays or sitting around the camp fire in the colder months. A stronger, more hard wearing, version of a classic jacket with excellent warmth per gram.

 

The North Face Redpoint Optimus Jacket
Price: £118.99
Weight: 600g/21oz
Features: Seamless shoulder yoke, packs into internal pocket, Primaloft PL1 filling, Alpine Fit.
The North Face Redpoint Optimus

The Redpoint Optimus was developed for the North Face athletes team and became their favourite product with its Primaloft One filling and ripstop nylon shell. The 100g PL1 filling gives plenty of insulation and the shell is DWR coated giving all round security. A new design for winter 2009 is a snag-free, seamless, shoulder yoke that gives better flexibility for arms and shoulders.
The hood on the Redpoint Optimus is fully adjustable, and you get the traditional complement of two hand warmer and one breast pocket on the outside. The inside, zippered pocket doubles up as storage for your jacket when not in use, saving carrying an extra stuff sack. Unlike the other jackets on test the Redpoint uses softshell fabric for the cuffs, using elastic rather than adjustable Velcro fastenings. The Alpine fit is a little shorter than the Berghaus Combust and Rab Generator Alpine but the overall fit is a little less tight.
Our View:
The Redpoint Optimus offers great value for money, coming in cheaper than the other jackets on test. Rolling into its own pocket for storage it’s ideal for cold winter days when you can’t afford to worry about rain.
