/ Dermizax or Gore-tex???
Been looking for a replacement for my old gor tex jacket. Just wondering if anyone had any experience with Dermizax?
Never had any experience with it myself but was wondering if anyone had any pointers on it?
Also has anyone had any positive/negative experiences of Bergans of Norway Dermizax/is it good enough for alpine conditions?
Bergman's are like most other brands - they make some good stuff, they make some cheaper stuff. If they have a problem it's that their range is too big and confusing
I was wondering why bergmnns kit was so much cheaper. Your know where you are with hitex I guess.
Had a creme for an itchy rash I caught in Thailand, same name Dermizax! ????
It seems to be used on ridiculously priced ski clothing. I used to think top end climbing shells were expensive, then I read a Snow&Rock catalogue!
But it sems to mainly be used by bergans, and they are much cheaper than major brands using gortex.
Makes me woder why the major brands stick with gotex...
There was a test recently in a German magazine that compared Jackets of different brands that offered two versions, one with Gore-Tex and one with an in-house membrane. No difference was fount in function of the membranes themselves, but the Gore-Tex membranes were always used in the more sophisticated jackets and the other membranes in the simpler versions ( less pockets etc.).
Here is the link, maybe it works with google translate:
Thanks for the replies everyone,
looks like gortex is probably the best bet. cheers!!
