The new Bergaus Hyper 100 jacket won gold in the apparel category of the 2016 OutDoor Industry Awards
Designed and engineered by Berghaus’ MtnHaus™ innovation team, the Hyper 100 is the world’s first waterproof jacket designed for mountain activities that weighs under 100g.
The OutDoor Industry Awards, the largest of its type in Europe, attracted 343 individual entries from global companies this year.
Apparel proved to be one of the most keenly contested categories and the Berghaus Hyper 100 jacket was one of only two products to be awarded gold.
Julian Nichols, Berghaus global vice president of product and marketing, said: “These accolades are not easy to earn and the OutDoor Industry Awards are particularly sought after because they are a stamp of approval from peers in our sector. The Hyper 100 jacket continues a proud tradition of award winning Berghaus products, designed and developed in North East England.
“More importantly, it meets a clear consumer need and we’re very excited about its potential, and that of the whole Extrem Light collection.
“The fact that this is Berghaus’ tenth major trade award in only four years demonstrates that we’re delivering sustained innovation and excellence, which is a fine habit to have.”
