The Bergen Jacket has been a regular within the Rab® waterproof range for several years and continues to offer extremely high levels of durability and breathability.
Heavier-weight eVent® fabric reinforces the shoulders for use with a pack and a slightly longer body cut offers increased protection against the elements. Other key features include a 2-way YKK VISLON® front zip, a regular fit for layering use, and a roll-down hood with anti-snag Velcro tab. Weighing 550g (Large), the Bergen Jacket is still light enough to pack away during long days walking on the hills.

Rab Carrington built his company on two things: A deep understanding of what climbers and mountaineers need, and a commitment to practical gear that works.
Throughout much of the 1970’s Rab could be found on ground breaking expeditions around the world. From winter climbing in Scotland and the alps, to expeditions in the Himalaya, Rab gained first-hand experience and understanding what climbers need from their kit.
In 1981 the native Scotsman moved to Sheffield to set up Rab. By first deciding how gear should be used, then designing for that use, Rab was able to produce specialist down sleeping bags and jackets with fresh dimension suitable for high performance mountaineering gear, offering products better than any other available at the time.
Jump ahead over 25 years and Rab are still at the forefront of innovation and performance. From their super lightweight bivi bags to tough, waterproof and breathable eVent™ jackets, Rab have created some of the most hardwearing and specialist kit in the world. Rab are still to this day designed and produced within the UK, using the highest quality, lightweight materials to create award winning products; and are ceaselessly committed to Rab’s exacting standards, ingenuity and pioneering spirit.
