Back in 1977, Berghaus became the first British brand to form a partnership with WL Gore & Associates, bringing Gore-Tex waterproof membranes to the UK.

To mark the 40th anniversary of this partnership, Berghaus has just announced that it will be releasing two new Gore-Tex jackets, the Hillwalker and Hillwalker Long.

The two Hillwalker products, which will be released this spring, are made out of Bluesign approved 2-layer Gore-Tex Performance Shell fabric with a durable ripstop nylon face.

The features on the Hillwalker jacket include a robust front zip with storm flap, rollaway hood and two lower handwarmer pockets.  The Hillwalker Long jacket also features an external zipped chest pocket and inter-active front zip, so it can be combined with Berghaus fleece products.

Both jackets are available in men’s and women’s specific versions and in a wide range of sizes.

The Hillwalker Long jacket retails at £170 and the Hillwalker jacket retails at £150.
