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 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 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.

Take Note World: Rab is Awesome

Last weekend whilst discussing work with my friend Alex, I was surprised to hear that he had never heard of the brand Rab.
