Velum brings out the best in GORE-TEX Active Shell

Feb '11
Berghaus, as a launch partner for the new GORE-TEX Active Shell fabric, is bringing a highly technical lightweight climbing range of shell products to the market for autumn/winter 2011. The men's and women's Velum jackets, the Velum smock and the Velum pant all offer outstanding performance and versatility for serious climbers.

GORE-TEX Active Shell is an exciting new fabric, designed for fast moving serious alpinists – and it is already earning great reviews from professional climbers and gear testers alike. Berghaus has been working with WL Gore for over 30 years and once again this close partnership has allowed the company to incorporate the latest technology into genuinely cutting edge products.

Leading the way, the Velum smock is constructed combining minimalist seaming and lightweight zips with a 'Bergonomic' cut, ensuring harness compatibility and excellent arm lift. The helmet compatible hood features a single handed adjustment system that was developed with, and tested by, Leo Houlding during the Asgard Project. The smock weighs in at only 312g (men's size large).

Meanwhile, the Velum pant offers great versatility for a wide range of mountaineering end uses. The fully separating side zips ensure that it is easy to put on and take off while wearing crampons or skis. Clever design and essential features ensure that this pant is an ideal companion for committed climbers in all seasons.

Thanks to a lighter, thinner membrane and new lamination technology, Active Shell is the most breathable GORE-TEX fabric ever. It's tough too, making it ideal for high octane, often punishing outdoor activities. Active Shell is tailor-made for alpinists who start early, move quickly and work hard all day – people like Philippe Gatta.

Climber and ultra distance trail runner Philippe joined the Berghaus team in 2010. For over 20 years, he has been climbing and running in extreme conditions around the world. Philippe moves fast and he needs robust shell products that really breathe. He has been putting the Velum range through its paces for Berghaus. He's a tough critic, but the Velum passed his test with flying colours.

GORE-TEX Active Shell is about to make a big impact on the outdoor market and Berghaus is in at the start as a key launch partner. The company has developed products that demonstrate a keen understanding of how to optimise Active Shell's performance, and which offer something new and very appealing to climbers.

The Pentland Group is the owner of the Berghaus brand.
