OUTSIDE, America’s leading active lifestyle brand, has selected Berghaus to be featured in their Winter Buyer’s Guide as among the best gear to have for the winter sports season. The Men’s VapourLight Hydroloft Reversible was reviewed in the Insulated jackets category and the Baffin Island Jacket was reviewed in the Backcountry jackets category. The entire selection of products appears in OUTSIDE’s Winter Buyer’s Guide, on newsstands September 29.

From winter running shoes and weatherproof cameras to snowboards and avalanche airbags, the OUTSIDE gear team tested hundreds of products to determine the best in gear this year for the Winter Buyer’s Guide. Featuring the most innovative products, killer deals for the price-conscious consumer, and expert ideas for winter outings, it’s the ideal resource for budding adventurers and outdoor aficionados alike. Reviews are organized by sport and activity, and include the ideal setting or experience level for each product, as well as tips for getting the most out of each gear pick. Only the best items on the market make into the pages of the Guide.

“Berghaus is absolutely thrilled to be noticed by the team at Outside,“ said Walt Crate, President at Berghaus USA. “Our design and innovation lab has been delivering award winning, world’s first and only type of alpine apparel for almost 50 years and it’s truly an honor to be recognized by Outside for our meaningful innovation and design acumen.”

“Great gear is essential to making the best of our time outside, and for many of us, it’s the most valuable investment we make,” says OUTSIDE Buyer’s Guide editor Axie Navas. “The gear industry is innovating at an amazing pace to keep up with ever-changing outdoor trends, and we want our readers to reap all the benefits of these advances. The OUTSIDE gear team hit the trails and the backcountry on foot, bike, ski, and snowboard to put all the newest products to the test, and nearly 300 made the cut, with seven top-notch items winning our coveted Gear of the Year award. 


The Baffin Island Jacket has been engineered using Berghaus’ advanced thermal body-mapping principles. Hydroshell™ Air has been used in key heat zones, for enhanced levels of breathability and comfort, while Hydroshell™ Elite Pro is featured in the main body of the jackets, resulting in the best possible combination of protection and breathability in a technical alpine garment.With the picks from the Winter Buyer’s Guide, our readers can be confident they’re facing the elements with the best gear on the market.

The VapourLight Hydroloft Reversible Hoody allows one jacket to be used as two with the innovative use of two face fabrics. Wear it warm side out to block wind and trap warm air. Reverse the jacket to the cool side to allow more airflow, extending the versatility of the jacket to almost any high intensity cool weather activity or pursuit. Weighing in at 7.8 ounces and packing down into its own stuff sack, it’s two jackets in one that any adventurer can appreciate.

The complete list of Buyer’s Guide selections will be featured in the OUTSIDE Winter Buyer’s Guide, available on newsstands September 29.
