Technology Detail Hero Image


Pertex is one of the innovative fabrics used at Berghaus to make our waterproof jackets reliable in the great outdoors. With a history spanning back 30 years, Pertex is designed to be light, strong and reliable making it the perfect addition to Berghaus’ range of waterproof technologies.

At Berghaus, we use a number of Pertex materials to give our men and women’s waterproof jackets the exact level of outdoor waterproof protection required. Created as a tightly woven synthetic fabric that’s structured to repel water, Pertex is the ideal technology for waterproof jackets. Its lightweight properties or ‘soft shell’ also make it comfortable and easy to move in for activities such as walking, hiking, camping and cycling.

At Berghaus we tailor our choice of Pertex materials to each of our products and test its endurance based on the rigours we think each product will undergo. You can discover more about each of our Pertex products and technologies below.
