The Hyper 100 shell jacket is a highly technical waterproof that boasts an unbeatable breathability rating. Amazing attention to detail and finishing make this lightweight piece a functional waterproof jacket for those looking for the lightest kit out there.

Berghaus says:

An ultra-lightweight 3 layer jacket designed for fast and light days in the mountains when every gram counts, fully waterproof but as light as a feather.

Designed by our MtnHaus research and development team this jacket features everything you need and nothing that you don’t, weighing in at just 97g this is the world’s lightest 3 layer mountain jacket.

Hydroshell Elite Pro fabric is fully waterproof and highly breathable so that you’ll remain comfortable and protected all day long.

Berghaus' Hyper 100 Shell Jacket has a lot of features for such a lightweight jacket and the attention to detail and quality finish on the jacket are what warrant the higher price. You can see this in the cuffs. The cuffs are elasticated, the elastic is on the underside only, with a continuation of the waterproof fabric on the top and even a little stiffened peak to keep it from folding over, this provides the grip needed to keep your sleeves down but also allows the rain to run off your arms instead of soaking into the material that would be present if the elastic went all the way round the cuff. This is a small detail but it's very technical and there for a reason.

There's a small inside pocket suitable for your keys and maybe a couple of gels. This is a great feature on such a lightweight jacket.

The hood fits really well for one without any adjustment. There is elastic down the two vertical sides of the hood, this provides enough grip to keep the whole hood close to your head. There's a small stiffened peak which is comfortable on your forehead and is much nicer than having more bunched up elastic there.

So all-in-all this is an amazing jacket, it's not going to last very long at all if you use it with a heavy pack, but by itself for trail running and other fast & light outdoor activities you can't beat it. The breathability rating is really out of this world at 50,000g/m2/24hrs, no waterproof out there can match this jacket for that at the moment.

Simply isn't waterproof

Zip let's water in within minutes. Considering its designed to keep people taking part in activities dry and therefore safer in some scenarios, it doesn't work. I've worn it twice, both in events, one in heavy rain, leaked before start of race. 2nd time in moderate rain, leaked after about 15 minutes.

Very light & very good!

Not only is this extremely light and small to carry, it's also very good at keeping you dry.
I can run for 5 hours in the rain in this jacket and still be comfortable and pretty much dry.
Reasonably waterproof and really breathable, far better than most waterproof jackets that weigh 3 times the berghaus.
I've had it for a year now and it works like new, just try not to wear it out as its not cheap!
