Berghaus Men's Mera Peak Jacket
A good traditional jacket to keep out British Weather
The Mera Peak is a 2 layer Goretex jacket with traditonal construction such as storm flaps on zips to leep out the weather. Ive had an early 3 layer version of this jacket before and it lasted well. I use this for regular rambling and hill walking in the UK but should be okay for similar climates elsewhere. Pockets are plentiful although the waist pockets arent best placed for a rucksack strap. Shoulders are reinforced with a durable nylon patch to protect from rucksacks. The fit is designed for walking and mountaineering but not for very active snow sports. Also this is a heavier jacket than some other more expensive Goretex ones and doesnt pack so small, however due to the weight it provides good isolation from the weather and therefore some insulation, good for cold climates. It evens adds vents as we all know that these jackets dont breathe fantastically. (hence not suitable for extreme active sports)
At the price purchased (in sale) then it offers great value.

Good buy for the mountain
The Mera Peak has been a great design by Berghaus for a good few years at least. I had the version from about 4 years ago and the current product is definitely as good, if not better. The waterproofing is robust thank to the gore-tex membrane and the breath-ability is good and can use the pit zips to add to it. The overall design and layout of the pockets is very good.
Price wise the product was a great deal on sale (Â£135) but had a fair price of Â£270 to begin with.

well fitting jacket
I've not had a chance to use this in earnest yet - its destined for my next walking trip in the Alps, but I love the fit and the hood is brilliant. It just leaves enough space to see out of and covers most of my face for those days when a thunderstorm comes out of nowhere.

Great product at a great price
You will not buy a better coat at the discounted price. Withstood the recent gale force winds and rain with ease. A technically good product that can be used for serious walking and for casual everyday wear.
