Berghaus' classic longer-length waterproof walking jacket, now with refined touches and details.
A longer cut version of the classic Berghaus Cornice II, the Berghaus Long Cornice II has been designed to keep hill walkers dry and comfortable even on hte wettest days.
Made using 2-layer GORE-TEX fabric, it's totally waterproof and windproof and highly breathable, and its longer length (when compared to most GORE-TEX garments) keeps you covered and walking for longer.
Its full-length InterActive zip means that if the temperatures drop, you can securely attach a compatible Berghaus fleece inside (such as the Berghaus Prism Men's Fleece ) to give you a layer of much-needed insulation without compromising on comfort or breathability.
The hood is fully adjustable, and can be rolled and stashed away into the collar when you don't need it. A drawcord at the waist lets you cinch the jacket in to cut down on bulk, and the dual drawcord hem means you can minimise drafts.
Its three generously sized pockets include a zipped OS map pocket, for easy access when you're navigating your trail.
- Double storm flap over front zip
- Elasticated cuffs with cuff tabs
- Warm, soft lined collar
- Handwarmer pockets

Fantastic Jacket, 04 March 2014
By Rhino (Halifax)
This jacket is fully waterproof with heavy wind driven rain beading and running off the surfaces even in extreme windy conditions. I wanted a longer length jacket because my hip belt on my rucksack kept lifting up my other jacket exposing the bottom of my back when going uphill on fells. The map pocket is accessed by opening the front flap press studs and then unzipping it so you can gain access without unzipping the jacket and letting in the weather a very good design. Only downside is the front pockets are covered by the hip belt of my ruck sack making it harder to get into them or having to undo hip belt but i can live with that for the performance in bad weather. Also vents exceptionally well with my layers being less wet/damp than previous jackets.
Long Cornice 2, 03 December 2013
By Oldish Pete (England)
This is my raincoat of choice for everyday British weather. Have been using it and its forebears for the past 30+ years. I am now on my third coat, which I have had for at least 3 or 4 years.
I outgrew my 30+ year old original, and its ~25 year old replacement. But a couple of years ago the original had its seam tape stuck back on, and was passed onto a friend whose size it is, and she regularly uses it for rambling.
Regarding the modern long Cornice compared wiith its forebears, the main improvement has been to the hood, which nowadays folds out from the collar, and has a peak to keep the rain off the face.
The main job over the years has been to reproof it with Nikwax products every couple of years or so.
While it is true that to remain completely dry for hours in the rain, one needs leggings or overtrousers, for shopping and generally getting around town and for using public transport in the rain the coat suffices.
The length is practical, especially for those of us with longer bodies in relation to our other dimensions. And a longer coat gives more protection against the cold and wind as well as rain. Personally, find them practical for cycling as well as hill walking.
Just wished they did this coat in a range of cheerful colours. - At least the only colour currently available is not black.

Had this about a month now and have used it several times.I find the length just right as it is just above the knee this keeps the wind and rain from effecting the area above the knee. You still need legging to protect you fully from elements though. I find the colour helpful when birdwatching .With the fleece this is a comfortable and warm addition.
