Warm and stylish, the Berghaus Men's Popena Hydrodown Fusion Vest features a hybrid mix of 600-fill hydrophobic goose down and Hydroloft synthetic insulation to deliver cold-weather comfort regardless of conditions.
Warm and stylish, the Berghaus Men’s Popena Hydrodown Fusion Vest uses a hybrid mix of down and synthetic insulations to deliver cold weather comfort regardless of conditions. Let’s take a closer look at its fit and features.
The vest has a rip stop shell fabric. And beneath that fabric you will find an insulation that is actually a blend of the 600 fill hydrophobic down and synthetic insulations. So you have got that warmth and compressibility of down insulation, but you have got a greater ability for that insulation to still do what it is intended to do even if it should become wet or damp. Traditional down won’t do that. But with the hydrophobic down and that synthetic mixture, you are getting better all condition performance in the Popena Vest.
The vest has a regular fit so it definitely anticipates that you will be wearing other layers beneath it. I have got just a t-shirt on here, other mid layers, base layers beneath it. This is actually a large. I would be a better fit in a medium, but you can see there is a roominess there. And that would still be the case even in the medium.
There are two points of adjustability here at the hem so you can draw that in a little closer to the body. You do have that full length zipper, so easy in, easy out. It is a two way zipper, so it also allows you to vent or to wear the vest for cold weather belays, too, so a nice piece for climbing use as well.
Got a few different pockets here on the vest, certainly nice hand warmer pockets here on the front. There is also kind of a micro fleece lining on the interior there, so really nice comfort and you are beneath those lofty baffles so they are quite warm as well. Inside the vest you have got a small zippered pocket that is perfect for keeping essentials close at hand and to protect it from the elements. I love the look of the vest, certainly love the warmth as well.
So the Berghaus Men’s Popena Hydrodown Fusion Vest, just a really great option for cold temperatures.
