I have been sent the new Berghaus Arisdale 3 in 1 Jacket from their range of Waterproof Jackets to review. Berghaus offers a range of men’s, women’s and children’s outdoor clothing and equipment including: waterproof jackets, fleeces, baselayers and legwear. They also produce a selection of outdoor specific accessories and footwear.
When I opened the package my first thoughts were that this was a heavy jacket. The website says its 1216g for jacket and fleece. As you can see Its a very contemporary looking jacket and would look great around town. I see that it is being stocked by Next.
I was surprised to find that the sleeves of the removable fleece were lined and felt rather restrictive.The fleece appears to be a 200 weight fleece and Berghaus refer to it as AT-Classic. It has bound cuffs and neck and two hand warmer pockets.As you can see below it is a smart looking jacket which could be worn on its own.
The main outer jacket has a mesh lining and a large inner mesh pocket large enough to store a OS map but this pocket is not assessable when the fleece is zipped in.There are two lower hand warming pockets and a small chest pocket.The hood is the fold away type with a laminated peak. there is hook and loop cuffs and elastic hem adjustment. But the main feature in my eyes is the pit zips to help keep you at a comfortable temperature.
The high tech Berghaus Arisdale jacket is a functional and stylish jacket for about town and would also be suitable for serious outdoor action.So if you are looking to buy just one jacket this could be the one for you.
