on: January 29, 2010, 11:55 am
January and February can produce the best and worst of
weather, so there’s no better time to check out Webtogs selection of waterproof
jackets to suit any pocket. With scores of jackets between them,
Berghaus and the North Face are two of the biggest and most respected
names available and provide some great bargains.
The classic Berghaus RG1 jacket is a long standing favourite, ideal for starting out
and giving amazing value for money. Ever popular the RG1 uses Berghaus’ own Aquafoil
waterproof technology with a DWR coating to keep the elements out. With a choice of
4 colours there’s something for everyone from the classic black to a vibrant red and
if the snow and ice of early January returns there’s even an option of a version
with extra warmth in the Berghaus RG1 Insulated Jacket.
The North Face Resolve is another classic entry level waterproof offering real value
for money with its HyVent waterproof and breathable fabric. The simple styling is
supplemented with a fully adjustable hood that stows away when not needed and easily
adjustable hem cord for sealing the wearer safely inside a protective shell. 5
colours give plenty of choice, one more than the Women’s Venture Jacket. The Venture
Jacket for women is a technical jacket at a budget conscious price, with all the
features of more expensive jackets. Brushed chinguard lining and pit zip vents show
the attention to detail on one of Berghaus’ most popular jackets.
Gore-Tex Paclite makes an ideal lightweight but waterproof fabric for jackets and
the Berghaus Paclite Jacket makes the most of its stunning breathability. With a
choice of male and female cuts and a selection of colours the Paclite is destined to
become a classic and all time favourite. With a streamlined design, taped seams,
waterproof zippers and easy-adjust drawcords it’s easy to create a shell from the
weather outside. With a fully adjustable hood, large mesh venting pockets and Velcro
cuff adjusters the Berghaus Paclite has all the features but at a tiny weight.
The North Face have also taken advantage of the breathability and light weight of
Paclite fabric with men’s and women’s versions of the Circadian Jacket. Although
lightweight the Men’s and Women’s Circadian jacket are full of features from a stow
away hood to Napoleon and hand warmer pockets. Fully seam sealed the jackets are
waterproof, breathable and lock down tight with adjustable cuffs and hem draw cords.
For total protection in winter there’s no substitute for Gore-Tex Pro Shell , the
fabric of choice for the Berghaus Fortitude Jacket or Women’s Chogori Jacket. Part
of the Berghaus Extrem range these two are full-on mountain jacket for when only the
best will do. With a combination of water shedding fabric and superb abrasion
resistance the Berghaus Fortitude and Chogori jackets are ideal for any conditions
and offer excellent breathability and temperature control in any environment along
