Featuring innovative waterproof fully open venting, the Berghaus Men's Vapour Storm Jacket is a versatile and highly breathable choice for a long list of aerobic pursuits in unpredictable weather conditions.
With innovative, waterproof, but fully open venting, the Berghaus Men’s Vapour Storm Jacket offers durability, high breathability and versatility for a wide range of aerobic activities in unpredictable conditions. Let’s take a closer look at its fit and its features.
The foundation for the weatherproof protection that the jacket delivers is Gore-Tex’s three layer active shell fabric. What you have got here certainly durability, but a high level of breathability. It is also very lightweight fabric. The jacket weighs in at just 11.6 ounces, again, making it rather ideal for aerobic activities where weight matters.
Got fully taped seams the whole way around, which, again, bolsters that waterproof protection.
The really, really unique feature going on here in the Vapour Storm Jacket is the active venting. You actually have pass throughs here on the chest. You have got pass throughs on the back at various points in the jacket. They are always open. So while there is overlaps, while there is still protection to ensure that rain, sleet, any kind of precipitation isn't finding its way into the jacket, there is also place for air to vent beyond just what can pass through the Gore-Tex membrane.
In keeping with the activities that you are likely to use the Vapour Storm for, there is a very athletic cut or fit to this jacket. Not a lot of extra room beneath it for heavier layers, but you certainly can wear base layers, mid layers, low profile mid layers beneath this jacket.
At the cuffs you do have an asymmetrical design here. So a little bit of extra coverage here over the hands, nice protection there, elasticity at the cuffs so you get a nice fit. If you did need to push the sleeves up, it kind of stays put and, again, leaves a little room if you do have layers beneath it.
There is also dual points of adjustability here at the hem. So you can cinch that in more tightly if you prefer an even closer fit.
Certainly also a hooded jacket. You have got bolstered protection there as well. A nice shaped brim, too, which really helps to fend off the elements.
Points of adjustability on that hood as well so you can really cinch it in and make sure you have got a really nice fit.
Also worth pointing out here on the jacket, you do have, certainly, waterproof zippers, a nice full length zipper on the jacket, excellent protection there. One small zippered pocket here high on the chest, so, again, pretty clean profile. You don’t have hand warmer pockets, but likely don’t need that on a jacket of this type.
The Berghaus Men’s Vapour Storm Jacket, extremely lightweight, very durable and highly breathable, making it a real go to option for skiing, for running, for hiking, for climbing, really any kind of activity where weight matters, but so does breathability.
