A comfortable, highly wind-resistant softshell, the Berghaus Men’s Breton Softshell Jacket is a midweight layering option that looks great and delivers excellent performance. Body-mapped construction delivers a great balance of protection and durability.
Built for winter or cold weather adventures, the Berghaus Men’s Breton Softshell Jacket is a hybrid mix of durability, warmth and breathability. Body map design incorporates windproof and high weather resistant protection in those areas most vulnerable. Let’s take a closer look at its fit and its features.
The Gore-Tex wind stopper soft shell face fabric is completely windproof and it is backed by the next to skin comfort of high loft, micro grid polyester fabric. So, again, on the inside it feels great. On the outside you are getting excellent protection.
Additionally, there is AF Softshell blended fabrication. It is a polyester and elastane. Still high wind resistant, less so than the wind stopper, reason being it is also a breathable fabrication. So allows warm air to push out from the interior of the jacket to ensure that you stay warm, dry and comfortable.
The jacket has a fairly close fitting cut, but it does expect to be used often as an outer layer piece. So there is room beneath here certainly for base layer, for mid layer pieces as well. You could put something heavier over top of it for the nastiest of conditions, but often times you will be wearing this as a top layer.
As far as the fit is concerned, at the cuffs here you do have some Velcro adjustability. So you can really cinch those down if you want to. Or leave them a little more loose fitting as well. There are points of adjustability here at the hem, dual points, one on either side. While it is not a hooded jacket, there is a point of adjustability high on the collar so you kind of cinch things closer there, again, to keep cold air out.
There is a full length zipper here on the jacket. There is also a draft guard backing to that zipper, which, again, helps to keep you warm, helps to keep cold air out. There are two zippered hand warmer pockets on the jacket, set nice and high, so you can still get in and out of them even if you are wearing a backpack or a climbing harness. Also one single zippered chest pocket, so up here high you can keep essentials close at hand, again, safe from the elements.
The Berghaus Men’s Breton Softshell Jacket, just a really great combination of wind and weather protection, also breathability. It makes this a really, really versatile piece for cold weather or winter activities.
