This is not the first time we’ve told you this but when you’re halfway up a mountain, and a foul storm’s a-brewing, you want to know that the gear you’re wearing is dependable. You want it to do the job, and you want it to do the job well. You definitely don’t want your clothes to rip down their seams at the first sign of trouble, and be forced to curl up shivering in the foetal position while you await to be rescued. That’s not what you want.
What you probably want to wear when mountaineering is, let’s face it, something that’s got a Berghaus label attached to it. After all, Berghaus are solid and reliable. The outdoor and adventure clothing, and equipment, manufacturer are like your mate down at the pub who responsibly drinks lime and sodas all night so that they’re in a fit enough shape to drive you all back home safely. That’s not to say they’re boring, far from it, it’s just that you know they’ll be there for you when you need them the most.
