Berghaus is marking 40 years of working with WL Gore & Associates by launching a new collection of GORE-TEX jackets.

The new Berghaus Hillwalker and Hillwalker Long jackets for spring/summer 2017 will kick off a series of waterproof apparel launches this year.

In 1977, Berghaus was the first company to introduce GORE-TEX products to Europe.

The Hillwalker jackets are aimed at offering “premium performance waterproofs designed for hiking, positioned at accessible price points”.

All of the Hillwalker products are made from Bluesign approved 2L GORE-TEX Performance Shell fabric with a durable ripstop nylon face.

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 male and female versions and in a wide range of sizes.

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