Since producing their first pioneering range of backpacks back in the early 70s, then being the first brand to use GORE-TEX® technology in their waterproof clothing and walking accessories, Berghaus have continued to innovate and create incredible gear for people who live for adventure. Champions of the trusty waterproof jacket and experts in essential walking and hiking accessories, Berghaus consistently impress us with their great-looking ranges for all seasons and worldwide climates.
Berghaus began in 1966 as a specialist outdoor clothing and equipment shop in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne. Run originally by two friends, the shop was originally called LD Mountain Centre and was the first to import the best of foreign outdoor innovations and technologies to meet the growing demands of British climbers and mountaineers. Before long, Peter Lockey and Gordon Davison were developing their own outdoor gear - from the original Berghaus 'rucksack' (German for 'backpack') to the GORE-TEX® Yeti® Gaitor and an ever growing range of waterproof jackets. The two friends chose a new name, Berghaus - German for 'Mountain Centre' - and one of the world's leading outdoor brands was born.
