UOG TOP PICK - Berghaus's VapourLight Hypertherm Race Smock - Ultra-lightweight insulation - We've singled out Berghaus's VapourLight Hypertherm Race Smock as one of our top recommendations because of its overall low weight. With features that have been designed to add minimal extra weight a high proportion of this smock is the insulation itself giving it a high warmth to weight ratio. While it won't be as warm as much heavier Smocks its warm enough if you're a fast mover and generating heat anyway.

The Hypertherm Race Smock is an incredibly versatile piece of reversible insulation. Highly packable, it offers windproof protection and warmth that is light enough to be worn whilst on the move. Turning the jacket inside out allows more airflow into the insulation keeping your cooler during high exertion.

Berghaus says:

The Men's VapourLight Hypertherm Race Smockis an adaption of the popular Hypertherm Jacket which was extensively tested on the demanding 1,2ookm great Himalayan Trail. Combining ultra-lightweight warmth with a reversible twist, wear it one way round for wind proofing and the other for better cooling and breathability.

The VapourLight Hypertherm Smock is a stripped-down, 156g (size large) pull-on design, with minimal frills using 40g Berghaus HydroLoft Elite, the ultimate in breathable synthetic insulation. If you seek the world's lightest synthetic mid-layer look no further.

Berghaus' VapourLight Hypertherm Smock is a versatile insulation layer. The warmth that you'll get from this jacket can be slightly varied by which way round you were it. It's reversible so the side with dual colours offers the most warmth due to that fabric being more wind resistant, whereas the mono coloured side breathes more and is therefore cooler.

Usually the difference in this type of garment between the two sides is about 10% more warmth. If this aspect interests you then great but it's not the be all and end all of the jacket, it's still a high quality lightweight insulating piece of kit. It packs down to almost nothing into the included stuff sack, ideal for when you need it most but you won't notice the extra weight in your pack.
