Berghaus Sanctity Jacket Reviews

General comments: Brilliant jacket,fully waterproof,breathable,hardwearing material. I have used it for over a year walking,hiking,mountaineering in all weathers and it has never let me down. 4 good sized outer pockets and 1 small inner pocket. For some reason the latest version only has 3 with 1 on the sleeve. Never used the underarm vent zips myself so can't comment how good/useful they are. Hood folds into the collar to enable the wearer to look cool when walking around town. Very well made. Highly recommended.
Pros: Excellent quality materials.
Cons: It's probably a bit trivial but the sleeves seem to be very long. I suppose it's better having them too long than too short though!

General comments: Agree with Andy only be very careful if you use it for snowboarding because when I carried the board under my arm the board edge cut the fabric a bit where the flap covers the pocket - not the jackets fault though! I have used it in heavy rain downpours, with snow settling on it, in heavy winds etc and it has never let water in. It is definetely just a shell jacket though and provides very little warmth in itself. It is probably not for you if you get cold easily. I'm the opposite and get hot very quickly and so the breathability and pit zips etc are really useful for temperature regulation. I also think the sleves are a bit long and the lining juts out too easily when you initially put your arms through. In heavy winds the hood works best with a hat underneath because even though I have a big head (sic) I still can't get the ties tight enough to keep it on.
Pros: Very good and usable features; the pockets are big and waterproof and there are lots of them. It fits really well but with enough room even for bulky fleeces underneath. The snowskirt helps keep the wind out. note - it is not adjustable though. It even looks pretty smart and not at all cheap.
Cons: The cuffs have a velcro closing but the rubber straps (with velco hooks moulded in) lost their grip very early on. I had to slice all the moulded hooks off with a razor blade and glue a normal piece of black cloth based velcro hooks over the top and that works fine. I think the newer design of jacket (2011) has sorted the problem out.
