You can see the longer back cut, two way full central zip, inner mesh pocket, elastic wrist bands and adjustable hood.
I really appreciate the innovation spirit in Berghaus and this jacket caught my attention very quickly.
From UL point of view it´s ideal choice for winter trips, because a piece of clothing weighting more than 400 grams in other then winter season is way too much heavy in my opinion.
Different examples of pack size - 4l STS Ultra Sil Dry Sack, Rolled in its hood and in slightly smaller mesh sack
How does the jacket perform in field? I worn it in different conditions and during different activities - snowshoeing, winter climbing in High Tatras and fast hiking / running as a back up. I am pretty sure I didn´t have to face some really demanding and mainly very wet / damp conditions, because the jacket always performed great and never soaked even a little. Hope to face these conditions in future to see how the jacket performs.
Great belay jacket (High Tatras, photo by Lukas A.)
I never felt cold in the jacket, it´s really warm enough for me (for temperatures up to -15C while not moving, wearing Devold Active LS and Berghaus Velum Anorak) and I think I am gonna buy warmer and bulkier down jacket only for polar or high altitudes trips. On the other side - Asgard Hybrid is too much for most spring - summer - autumn trips and I am going to purchase something lighter and smaller (probably just an anorak).
Weight: Normal, but light for a winter insulation jacket
Performance: Perfect yet (9 month, various trips and conditions)
