Mount Asgard Hybrid jacket delivers insulation at the double

Feb '11
New from the MtnHaus design and development team at Berghaus is the Mount Asgard Hybrid jacket. Combining new hydrophobic down, Primaloft One and Pertex Quantum, this unique jacket offers unrivalled warmth and comfort for alpine routes and ice climbing, where weather conditions are changeable and lightweight performance is essential.

Hydrophobic down offers all of the natural benefits of down, such as superior warmth to weight, compressibility and resilience, enhanced by an innovative water resistant treatment applied directly to the down itself. The result is down clusters that are more resistant to wetting, and therefore maintain their loft when damp, take up less water, and both dry and recover their loft more quickly. All of this leads to notably enhanced performance in damp conditions.

The Mount Asgard Hybrid jacket uses an extremely lightweight wind resistant and water repellent Pertex Quantum face fabric to protect the insulation from the elements. Hydrophobic Down is used as core insulation in the jacket, providing optimum warmth. Following extensive input from climber Leo Houlding and mountain guides from Mountain Tracks, Berghaus has also incorporated Primaloft One insulation in the jacket, in key areas that are prone to getting wet during extended use – the hood, shoulders, sleeves and hem.

The Mount Asgard Hybrid jacket includes key features for use by climbers in extreme conditions, such as a fully adjustable mountain hood with peak, an elasticated and adjustable hem drawcord with one handed closure, an internal security pocket and two handwarmer pockets for use while belaying.

Thanks to the application of advanced garment design and the use of the latest materials, the jacket is also lightweight at only 472g (size large) and packs down very small when not being worn. The result of all of this is a highly innovative jacket that offers the insulation expected of down, while significantly extending the scope of its use compared to a traditional down garment.

The Pentland Group is the owner of the Berghaus brand.
