A highly-versatile midlayer or outerwear piece, the Berghaus Men's Asgard Tribrid Jacket has a hybrid design that delivers comfort, warmth, and weather protection for alpine and backcountry adventures.
With a body map design and a hybrid combination of down and synthetic insulation, the Berghaus Men’s Asgard Tribrid Jacket is a highly versatile layering option that delivers warmth, comfort and performance. Let’s take a closer look at its fit and features.
There are a number of different materials in play on the men’s Asgard Tribrid jacket. You have got a highly wind resistant, wind stop fabrics. You have also got fleece fabrics and you can see that body map design in play on the jacket. As far as the insulations are concerned, first of all, in the jacket, you have got hydradown, which is a down insulation that has been treated to have better water resistance than a traditional down, but you also have hydraloft, which is a truly synthetic insulation that Berghaus utilizes so that in having both of those in play, you are getting the best of both, that greet warmth to weight ratio of down and then on the synthetic insulation you have got an even quickly drying and a more breathable insulation.
Bring the fleece panels into play, you have got great range of movement, great comfort next to skin and, again, that enhanced breathability. So you have got a really aerobic layering piece here that gives you the warmth you need in the places that you need it, with the ability to push warm air out if and when you are actually overheating.
In cooler temperatures this jacket certainly can be worn as a stand alone or an outerwear piece. But it really is designed to come into play as a layering piece. So while you can put low profile base layers, t-shirts, things like that beneath this, you are unlikely to be putting much heavier base layers underneath it. You certainly could put a fully waterproof shell over top of it when you need it. You have got DWR finish on this, so you have got decent water resistance, great wind resistance, but not a truly waterproof piece.
Again, athletic cut here so when we come down to the sleeves and the cuffs all you have there is elasticity, no other adjustability. But I definitely do want to point out the fact that you do have integrated thumb holes. Nice feature again on a layering piece. It does away with that gapping that can occur between the end of the glove and the beginning of your sleeve. Also just gives you better protection out and over the hand and enhances that overall fit.
Got that same kind of stretch design here at the hem as well. So a nice fit as far as that is concerned without any real need for adjustability.
This is also a hooded piece and you have got that same kind of stretch binding there. So fully zipped, you have got a nice, close fit here at the head, great warmth.
As you can see, you do have a full length zipper, again, just kind of adds to the versatility here, whether you are wearing it as a jacket or a layering piece. Easy in and easy out of this jacket. You can also vent it a little bit if you are getting extremely warm.
You do have two zippered hand warmer pockets. And they are set high enough that you could certainly still have a harness on if you were wearing this for climbing. If you had a backpack on, same thing. You still can get into those zippered pockets while you are wearing a pack or a harness. Great versatility, again, in this piece. Doesn’t weigh much at all. You have got 14 and a half ounces, roughly. So under a pound on this piece. Great warmth, great breathability and, again, can’t stress it enough, wonderful versatility in the Berghaus Men’s Asgard Tribrid Jacket.
