Having owned a Berghaus before and since losing weight I wanted to replace it and was over the moon when I found this one on Amazon at such a bragain price as the ones in the shops were at least twice as much and in my opinion not as nice. I bought it in the Java colour which is a lovely dark brown with a contrasting cream fleece. I considered the amethyst one too but decided that the Java looked classier and would go with everything which it does. My previous one was red and I always felt like I should be hill walking in it so decided to tone it down with a more neutral colour.
It's a nice length and is excellent in warmer weather when it's raining without the fleece and very toasty with the fleece in colder weather. It's a bit annoying having to re-do the buttons/zips to put the fleece back in place but that's just the nature of a 3-in-1 and our ever changing weather conditions. This won't be an issue when we hit winter properly and the fleece will be staying firmly put.
I'm a size 14 (leaning towards a 16 rather than a 12) and the 14 was plenty big enough.
So in short a great jacket that does what it says on the tin, once it arrived I couldn't wait for it to rain so I could go out and wear it!!
