- Developed by MtnHaus
The MtnHaus® team were tasked with designing a lightweight and extremely breathable jacket which would keep our athletes cool and dry during fast paced activities in rainy climates.
The team designed a lightweight jacket with waterproof storm vents which allow airflow to circulate but prevent water getting in.
The perfect testing ground for the newly developed Vapour Storm Jacket was a five day, 200 mile mountain marathon across Wales' most brutal terrain. With two of our athletes entered into The Dragon's Back Race™ - Steve Birkenshaw and Helene Whitaker - it was a great chance for us to test the Vapour Storm to ensure the jacket would perform in the toughest of environments.
Design & Development
The Vapour Storm Jacket has been designed to help adventurers tackle the world's most challenging expeditions and adventure races.
Tested in eight different countries on treacherous climbs, brutal treks and punishing mountain marathons the Vapour Storm Jacket has been put through an extended MtnHaus® development process.
Combining GORE-TEX® Active with front, side and rear vents this lightweight jacket offers the highest degree of protection and comfort.
Patent pending waterproof storm vents allow active venting even in the wettest conditions
Side, front and back yoke vents create a chimney effect that allows cool air in and humid air to escape.
Testing & Challenge
Put through its paces by the world's toughest critics
The Vapour Storm jacket has been through years of testing in over 8 different countries during various demanding athlete expeditions and races.
Our athletes Helene Whitaker and Steve Birkinshaw tested it during the Dragon's Back Race™, a challenging 200 mile long trail race across Wales' most brutal terrain, which Steve won.
Adventure racers and Berghaus athletes Philippe and Anna Gatta have also provided input and tested the jacket in various other adventure races.
As well as our athletes testing the Vapour Storm Jacket in tough adventure races Leo Houlding and his team also used it during his expedition to the depths of the Amazonian jungle in Venezuela. During their adventure they experienced temperatures in excess of 35 degrees and monsoon-like conditions – the perfect testing ground for the Vapour Storm.
