Berghaus Stormcloud Jacket Review

When looking at a waterproof jacket there is always a lot of factors to take into consideration. Is it in my budget? How does it look? Is it versatile and practical? What are the features?

So with all of these factors in mind I set out to find a waterproof jacket that ticks all of my boxes – below £100, stylish but not a fashion jacket, practical for hikes in bad weather, and high quality material.

All of this lead me to the Berghaus Stormcloud Waterproof Jacket.

The Stormcloud Jacket is very reasonably priced at only £79.99 in Black and £99.99 in Dusk – two very clean colours that look great without being brash. It has a clean design with functional pockets to store everything you need whether it’s a trip to the shops, or a hike up a mountain.

It terms of features and technology it would definitely be a solid choice for hiking in bad weather. The jacket is made from Hydroshell fabric, tried, tested and proved to keep you dry and comfortable in even the wettest of conditions. The Hydroshell fabric offers the wearer good waterproofing and excellent breathability, keeping you protected from the elements as well as adapting too them – whether you’re tackling a trail, a light hike, or even using it for getting out and about day to day.

However, with a waterproof rating of 10,000mm, the jacket was an ideal choice for days spent outdoors.

Overall Impressions

The Berhaus Stormcloud Jacket is a lightweight and breathable jacket, perfect for fast movement, backpacking, and general use even in wet weather conditions.

Berghaus is a name that can be trusted and they offer a lifetime guarantee on all of their products, another great reason to purchase this jacket.

At £79.99 it won’t break the bank, allowing you to spend the money you save on other essential gear you may need.
