This review is from: Berghaus Mens Cornice Gore-Tex Jacket (Sports Apparel)I bought this jacket to replace my old 3 layer Taslan Goretex jacket,it is one of the few available that is full length - thus covering the posterior and also offering hip height pockets. The prime use is for hill walking in winter and on a recent trip to Aran Fawddwy was fully tested, glorious sun in the late morning followed very quickly by driving cold rain with sleet, the afternoon being cool and dry. The jacket performed admirably as you would expect from Berghaus, keeping the wearer perfectly dry. The hood proved easy to use, though use of the adjusters with gloved hands was not easy. I am not keen on the use of press studs for the weather seal over the zip - again difficult to use with gloved hands in freezing rain - nor of the small velcro strips, I would prefer a full length velcro fastening.At just under £100 for a well made Goretex jacket this is a steal - you just have to put up with the drab colours !
