We try and test Berghaus Men’s Iii Gore Tex Walking Shell Cornice Jacket.
I WANT IT BECAUSE:
It’s a high-quality Goretex walking jacket that is perfect for the Scottish weather but is also the perfect multi-function jacket to keep in your car for wet days.
Wet days. It is long so you don’t get a wet bum when sitting down, it’s totally waterproof, velcro cuffs keep the wind out, its adjustable foldable peaked hood has good draw cords, design stops condensation building up, and the big internal pocket is just the right size to keep your OS map dry.
It’s light and the small details – drawcord waist, velcro cuffs, three good pockets – mean it is both comfortable and useful.
The zip is big (which is good) but proved a little fiddly to close (which is bad). It could also have done with studs or zips on all pockets. But these are minor quibbles.
