Brands for the Seasoned Hiker: Berghaus

Whether you’re hiking through the New Forest or up Kilimanjaro, you need to be able to rely on your outdoor gear so you can get on with the challenge. Berghaus offer a full range of hiking gear that targets the beginner to the more adventurous walkers.  Hikers need durable equipment, that’s flexible and offers good mobility, as well as equipment that’s lightweight and breathable. Here we see how their products fare when the going gets tough. The brand is great for novice hikers and it offers a wide range of clothing for men, women and children.


One thing Berghaus does really well is hiking footwear. If you’re a hiker then it’s pretty much a given that you’ll have heard of the brand. It offers a good solid range which is ideal for the novice, leading up to the more seasoned hiker.

If it’s a lightweight summer trekking shoe you’re after, then the Bueno Strap is a steal at just £60, a hardwearing synthetic trekking sandal it promises to provide lightweight trekking support for those hot summer days when you want to put your heavy duty hiking boots to one side. Although it’s not necessarily the right footwear for more intensive terrain, it will stand you in good stead for more casual walking on medium ground.

If you’re looking for something which offers stability for more active and fast paced adventures, yet you still need a lightweight boot, then Berghaus has the new Exterra Light Gore-Tex boot to stand up to the challenge. Prices for the Berghaus boots range from £120 for the lightweight varieties, up to around £200 for mountaineering boots and the serious trekking shoes.



Berghaus also offers a good range of hardwearing trousers and shorts at reasonable prices. The Berghaus Terrain Zip Off Convertible Trousers are a good option to cater for all conditions – particular during a typical English Summer!


If you’re looking to keep warm then what Berghaus does a great line in is base layers and mid-layer fleeces. Again, these are affordable when you compare them to some of the lines targeted at more extreme levels. One of our faves in the range is the Active Thermal Long Sleeve Crew Neck T-shirt with its innovative silver ion technology for permanent odour reduction, so you stay fresh even after pushing yourself to the limits.
