ISPO Gold Award: Relaunch of Extrem
After more than two years of extensive design, development and testing Berghaus struck I¦SPO gold for the third year in a row with the Extrem 8000 Pro.
The Extrem 8000 Pro jacket is the flagship product from the all new Extrem range for autumn/winter 2016 and it won ‘Gold’ in the three-layer outer section of the outdoor clothing category. Following the assessment of a panel of expert judges from across Europe, the Extrem 8000 Pro was named the best on show.
Whilst Berghaus have always strived to be the best when it comes to our collection of waterproof jackets, we've now created a waterproof jacket that promises to equal the performance and reputation of any product that has gone before it in the 30 years since Extrem was first launched. Tested extensively by Berghaus athletes Mick Fowler and Leo Houlding, the 8000 Pro is part of an all-new collection of Extrem garments for autumn/winter 2016.
Hyper Smock 2.0 wins Oppad Outdoor Award
The world's lightest waterproof jacket was recognised at the Oppad Outdoor Awards in 2015, collecting the 'reader's awards' for the best overall product.
The comments from the jury at the awards were: “The Vapourlight Hyper Smock 2.0 is the lightest waterproof jacket of its kind. It is beautifully made and super strong. Also, the jacket represents great value for money”.
ISPO Award Baffin Island Jacket
The new Baffin Island Waterproof Jacket was successful in the outer layer category for outdoor products in 2015, in recognition of Berghaus’ use of two waterproof materials in a high performance hybrid construction.
The Baffin Island Waterproof jacket introduces the latest fabric in the Hydroshell™ family, the ultra-breathable Hydroshell™ Air. Berghaus has mixed the new fabric with lightweight and tough three-layer Hydroshell™ Elite Pro to create the optimum combination of protection and breathability for extended alpine use.
Baffin Island Waterproof Jackets are packed with essential features for extended use in the mountains, and have been tested extensively in the laboratory and during expeditions by Berghaus athletes such as Mick Fowler and Michelle Blaydon
ISPO Award VapourLight HyperTherm
Berghaus has won two major international industry awards for products developed by its MtnHaus® design and development team. In the 2014 ISPO Awards a jury of experts from around Europe crowned the Berghaus VapourLight HyperTherm and Hyper Smock waterproof jackets as winners in the performance apparel outer layer category. The HyperTherm was given a ‘Gold’ award, declared overall best product in the category and shortlisted for ISPO Product of the Year 2014. Berghaus athlete Philippe Gatta used the HyperTherm and Hyper Smock waterproof jackets while running over 1,000km of the high route of the Great Himalayan Trail in only 33 days.
