Outside Magazine has just published its guide to the best backcountry jackets for 2016 and they’ve rated the Berghaus Baffin Island Jacket as one of the best, noting:
“... looks like your classic trim-cut European hard shell, but it’s actually an extremely versatile layer suited to everything from ski touring to bike commuting. Stretchy fabric at the back and under the arms gives it the non-restrictive fit of a supple midlayer, while burly material at the shoulders and hips boosts durability without adding much weight. Berghaus nailed the details, too, including a drop hem that’s long enough to keep you dry even running rainy-day errands on a bike.”
