Suitable for fast moving activities, this lightweight, highly breathable jacket has an athletic cut. Made from 2.5 layer Aquafoil Light which means it packs down to almost nothing yet still retains all the properties of a top end water proof jacket.

   Berghaus Boralis Jacket Reviews

  Reviewed by Paul Reilly (Edinburgh) on 2009-03-15:
General comments: The Boralis is a very good multi-activity jacket. It uses Berghaus's own waterproof material: Aquafoil Light, which in practice has proved reliable. Very light weight and packs away small into it's own stuff sac. The jacket is quite short and stylish enough for everyday use around town, yet light weight enough to make it a suitable addition to one's running or biking gear. Reflective piping on the arms, ensure you are kept visible whilst your activities continue into the night. The front zip has an external double stormflap to keep the rain out. The side pockets are easily accessible whilst wearing a rucksack and are meshed lined to add ventilation. However the pockets have only one external stormflap that is easily blown open revealing the non-water resistant zips to the heavens resulting in water that is able to leak through to your base or mid-layers. The hood tucks neatly into the collar and fits comfortably when up. Hood movement is also good, although it does lack the protection of a winter jacket, as there is no wire peak to conform to the shape of your face. I use this jacket almost everyday, from around town, to hill-walking (in good conditions) with this as my back-up in my rucksack should the Scottish weather turn sour. More recently, I have found this jacket useful for running in the Pentland Hills. To sum up, a stylish, light and comfortable jacket that is an essential for those who pursue a variety of activities. Considering the performance, the Berghaus Boralis is a great value jacket. But a word of warning, this jacket is not suitable for mountaineering, or winter hill-walking in poorly conditions: I tried it and it was not fun. I would like to make a special mention to Linzi from Berghaus, who was kind enough to send me out a replacement stuff sac complimentary for my beloved jacket after miss-placing mine. Great customer service Berghaus, thanks.

Pros: Price, weight, style, all round performance.

Cons: Lack of water resistant zips and no wire peak in hood.

Hi Paul,

Thanks for taking the time to write such an informative review. Was swithering between the Boralis and the RG1 but now my mind is made up.
