New from Berghaus for spring/summer 2017 are the Fast Climb jacket and pant. Extending the renowned Extrem range with lightweight, durable summer gear, the Fast Climb products are softshells designed to give protection from the elements, while providing high levels of freedom of movement and comfort during long days on the crags. Building on the success of winter 2016 products like the Extrem 8000 Pro and Ramche 2.0 jackets, Berghaus has engineered the Fast Climb jacket and pant with the same focus on innovation and attention to detail.
Built to meet the clearly expressed needs of climbers, the precisely placed features on the Fast Climb jacket include: a helmet compatible adjustable hood; two raised zipped pockets that sit clear of a climbing harness and also allow for venting; an internal ’phone specific pocket to keep a device secure while on the move; diamond gusset under the arms to enhance freedom of movement while climbing; adjustable cuffs and full hem adjustment to prevent rain and wind ingress. The Fast Climb jacket weighs in at just 450g (size medium) and retails at £160.
The Fast Climb range is part of Berghaus’ MADEKIND initiative, featuring bluesign® approved Colourkind™ eco-friendly fabric. During production, the Colourkind™ dyeing process uses 89% less water and 63% fewer chemicals than standard dyeing methods.
The Fast Climb jacket and pant are available now from www.berghaus.com and selected specialist outdoor retailers.
