Berghaus is the UK’s leading performance outdoor brand, with a long heritage of designing, developing and selling market leading products. Founded in Newcastle upon Tyne in 1966, the company produces clothing, footwear and equipment that is sold and used around the world. During five decades, Berghaus has been responsible for introducing many firsts to the market and continues to innovate at the cutting edge. The company equips some of the world’s greatest adventurers and climbers, including Sir Chris Bonington, Mick Fowler, Leo Houlding, Angelika Rainer and Molly Thompson-Smith, along with the GB Climbing Team and GB Paraclimbing Team. The brand also supports leading charitable and environmental organisations such as the John Muir Trust, the Outward Bound Trust and the European Outdoor Conservation Association.
Berghaus constantly pushes the boundaries of what is possible in product development. Leading the way is MtnHaus™, a team within the company that exists for the sole purpose of creating genuine kit innovations. MtnHaus™ has been responsible for bringing some ground-breaking new products to the market during the last few years, thanks to a process that sees designers from Berghaus working closely with sponsored athletes to engineer and test ground-breaking concepts and turn them into the latest generation of high performance outdoor gear. The combination of an in-house sample room and laboratory allows Berghaus to invest the time and attention to detail required to create the very best products possible, which are also comprehensively tested in the right activities and environments by the company’s sponsored team and own staff.
Berghaus makes products for a very wide range of activities, from mountaineering, climbing and adventure racing, to backpacking, hiking and general outdoor use. The pinnacle Extrem™ range – first launched in 1986 – is used by the most committed activists in the most demanding conditions on the planet, while products from elsewhere in the collection help people of all levels of experience to enjoy their own adventures in the outdoors.
