Whether you're bedding down on damp ground or climbing in less than perfect conditions, this breakthrough technology from Berghaus keeps you and your kit dry, warm, comfortable and light. Pioneered by Berghaus, Hydrodown™ is a revolutionary new take on nature's greatest insulator. By treating goose down with a durable water repellent (DWR), we've created a material that resists rain longer, dries quicker, and retains its insulation even when it's damp. And just like untreated down, it has amazing warmth-to weight ratio which no synthetic alternative has come close to matching.
Hydroloft™ is a synthetic form of insulation that is formed out of super fine polyester fibres. It mimics the behaviour of down by trapping body heat using small pockets of air, but as it is synthetic, it continues to perform when wet and it does not migrate around a product. Because Hydroloft™ does not migrate, Berghaus is able to combine it with less tightly woven inner and face fabrics, allowing perspiration to escape while the wearer is on the move and significantly increasing the comfort delivered by finished products when in use.
Bought this jacket to replace a 20 year old parka. It’s very light weight and stylish. Fits true to size. Looking forward to wearing it this winter in Europe!
