Hillwalking kit advice


Berghaus Fellmaster InterActive Jacket

If you’re heading out hillwalking for the first time, one essential piece of kit that you’ll need is a waterproof jacket. And Mountains for the Mind supporters Berghaus have got that covered!

This is the UK, so we can’t promise blue sky and sunshine every day, but the great news is that wet weather doesn’t have to stop you enjoying the outdoors in comfort, thanks to products like the Berghaus Fellmaster InterActive jacket

Developed in Britain by designers who know all too well about the unpredictable weather here, the Fellmaster is a thoroughly modern hillwalking jacket. The waterproof and breathable GORE-TEX® fabric will keep out the elements, while allowing you to keep moving without overheating.

Features such as the adjustable grown-on hood, and cuff and hem adjustment also help keep the elements at bay, while essential items can be kept safe and dry in three zipped pockets. The dropped mesh lining, soft face fabric and articulation in the arms add comfort and freedom of movement, and the striking design and colour options complete an effective and stylish jacket.

Even better, the Berghaus InterActive front zip allows you to combine the Fellmaster with a Berghaus InterActive fleece for added warmth on cooler days (something else we’re all used to in the UK!). The Fellmaster InterActive is available in men’s and women’s specific versions and retails at £165.
