Berghaus have produced an incredibly breathable jacket using the most technical Gore-Tex fabrics out there that performs like an all-mountain jacket without the weight.
The most breathable 3-layer GORE-TEX® jacket in the world, the pioneering GR20 Storm Jacket achieves new possibilities in hyper-breathability and packability combined with waterproof protection. If you’re looking for unrivalled performance in breathability and weather protection, here it is.
Using a special fabric variant of the new GORE-TEX® Active shell, it combines a hyper breathable membrane with a super lightweight face fabric to give you breathable and waterproof protection at their best. Designed and developed by our MtnHaus™ Innovation Team, weight and convenience are key factors.
The unique Berghaus single point adjustment hood gives you the perfect fit in one simple pull of the lightweight automatic tag at the back. Plus, staying cool when the going gets tough has never been easier, as unique Berghaus Body Mapped Storm Vents and vented pockets let excess heat escape without letting rain in. So, with hyper breathability and a multitude of intricate design details, it’s the ideal piece of technical kit to meet your mountain needs.
Berghaus' design team have really pushed the limits of waterproof jacket design with the GR20 Storm Gore-Tex Shell Jacket. The main criticism of Gore-Tex over the years has been that you still get moisture inside due to perspiration needing to be drawn through the fabric. Gore-Tex Active is the first defence against this problem, it's Gore-Tex's most breathable waterproof fabric technology, secondly Berghaus have incorporated numerous vents around the jacket to assist in getting the moisture vapour out of the garment. These vents feature across the chest, under the arms, on the sides, across the back and at the neck of the jacket. The fabric overlaps inside and even has a gutter to stop any water from entering the jacket no matter at what angle your body is. These vents might not suit every user, if you can't get your head around having multiple holes in your waterproof jacket before you've even used it once.
The coloured areas of fabric are using a different face material which features Ripstop. These are strategically placed in high-wear areas.
