I had an old Berghaus Extrem goretex jacket (c2007?) when I went to uni; I foolishly sold it, and bought an eVent one by another well-known British brand, which promptly leaked. I also had a Berghaus Extrem rucksack which lasted from 2008 (with some seams re-stitched when the glue melted!) until a few months ago (when that same stitching came to bits). It's currently with Berghaus, being repaired under their repair scheme.
If they keep to the design and build standard of the old Extrem stuff, I suspect I'll opt for Berghaus whenever I need something new, not least because of their repair policy.
