Berghaus RG1 Review

Berghaus RG1 Review

Berghaus RG1 jacketThe Berghaus RG1 is an excellent 3 in one jacket for camping, hiking and walking. The outer layer is made of  material which is completely waterproof as well as breathable.

I have noticed over the years that some waterproof jackets just make you sweat causing you to overheat in all conditions. With the Berghaus RG1 it certainly solves this problem with the layer due to its breathability.

The Berghaus RG1 jacket and its waterproof AQ2 material. gives it a hydrostatic head rating of up to 10,000. This makes the RG1 waterproof even in the harshest wet conditions.

The berghaus RG1 comes with an inner detachable micro fleece layer which isamazon button designed to keep you warm in colder conditions.

The Berghaus 3 in one allows you to wear the outer layer separately or the inner fleece layer separately. In severe weather simply combine the two layers to stay warm and dry.

The Berghaus RG1 also includes an easy to use and practical roll away hood, this comes with draw strings similar to the ones you find on most jackets of this type.

One other point I like about this Berghaus 3 in 1 jacket is that it is extremely light. on another note is it dries really quickly. This is probably due to the water being taken away by the  AQ2 material. You will notice that when out in the rain that the water on the berghaus RG1 outer layer simply forms into water beads and runs off extremely quickly. It is really exceptional at repelling water.

Oh by the way you can buy the RG1 as a single layer (at the time of writing this anyway). The RG1 was originally a very popular and best selling single layer jacket, however Berghaus decided to improve on it, hence the RG1 3 in 1 jacket was introduced at a later date.

 

The Berghaus 3 in 1 (Available on Amazon) has two built in pockets in it’s outer layer that help keep your hands warm in colder conditions and obviously to store small items in. The fleece/micro fleece layer also comes with two neat hand warmer pockets. All pockets on this Berghaus jacket have the addition of zips, which is a nice little extra touch showing that it is another top quality garment from Berghaus.

On a point of note, remember never to wash any water repellent jacket such as the Berghaus RG1 with any biological washing powder or biological liquids.

Conclusion

The Burghaus RG1 has been one of the best selling waterproof jacket in the Burghaus range. With the introduction of the RG1 3 in 1 jacket and it’s removable fleece system Berghaus have surely come up with another best seller. The RG1 and the Berghaus RG1 3 in 1 both have rave reviews across many shopping outlets. It’s good to see a top quality item that does what it says. This will definitely keep you warm and dry.
