This is a women specific jacket ideal for all-weather walking in the UK. The ladies Berghaus Glissade uses two layer goretex which offers protections without hindering breathability. The IA zip system also allows you to integrate your Berghaus fleece which turns the Glissade into a full-on 4 season jacket.
Berghaus Womens Glissade IA Jacket Reviews

General comments: Good wind protection and comfortable to wear for extended time. Tested twice already in extreme, prolonged downpours - once in Cwm Idwal in Wales and more recently on a mountain in the Austrian Tirol - both times superb performance with no water coming in at all!
Pros: It's great to have a jacket that's 100% waterproof and reliable.

General comments: Not suited for hiking/climbing in rough terrains and off beaten tracks in the Scottish Highlands for example. Material gets snagged easily and there are notches, rips and tears in my otherwise great-fitting lightweight jacket
Cons: The zip is quite awkward (bad when the downpour starts!)

General comments: On to my second Glissade now which shows how much I think of this jacket! Lightweight but watertight in our lovely climate - rain rolls straight off and it dries very quickly. In colder weather zip in a fleece and it becomes the ultimate winter jacket - warm, dry and windproof. Great value for money - can't recommend enough.

General comments: As I work in an outdoor persuits centre, good kit is important to me. I have had a slightly older version of the one pictured here for years, and its never let me down. Its a little worn in places but its so light and versatile you can really wear it everywhere. I have really worn it hard, had a couple of falls in it and it has outperformed more expensive jackets that I have owned. Great with a couple of layers underneath as although it is windproof and waterproof its doesnt do well at keeping you warm. Very breathable, I could wear this all year round. Pockets are good and well placed. Would be niced if it stowed down really small, but its a little bulky when folded.
Pros: Hard wearing, does well in all weathers, plenty internal room for base layers.
Cons: Cold if youve not got kit on underneath, could stow down better.
