    What do you like about Berghaus?

    Arete 45 rucksack

    What do you dislike about Berghaus?

    Some of their range is cut 'generously' despite its intended use being athletic

    Boots

    Do you think they are affordable?

    Yes- I buy it from end of line places, so half price

    Who is a good alternative to Berghaus?

    Rab - far better cut for my body shape

    Did you know that they are a British company?

    Yes

    Do you think they are of good quality?

    Reasonable - depends on whether it's the Extrem range or the generic high street stuff

    What age group in particular would buy from Berghaus?

    Chavs, or people not too fussy about the brand (i.e. those not jumping on the Haglofs/Arcteryx bandwagon)

    Do you visit their flagship stores, buy their items from other stores or do you shop online?

    Other stores

    How much would you spend a year on Berghaus items?

    £145this year, but expect to get a good few years out of both the Goretex jacket and rucksack

    I hope you all checked out Marie's fashion blog. I never realised fashion could be so scary, and I wouldn't like to bump into some of those 'models' on a dark night. As for those lasses in the countryside, I'm not sure about the practicality of their attire. Further down, the language suggests that Marie should join the Windy thread, and as for the idea of lingerie being made from human hair... nuff said!

    What do you like about Berghaus?

    Sadly I don't know enough about Berghaus - it's a brand I walk past as it's almost too mainstream and has a somewhat chavvy image in my eyes

    What do you dislike about Berghaus?

    The fact that it is too mainstream and sits alongside TNF as the brand of choice with too many less desirable members of society

    Do you think they are affordable?

    Some of the items have seemed over priced for mass produced products

    Who is a good alternative to Berghaus?

    I prefer Haglofs, Norrona, Mountain Equipment, Mountain Hardwear, Montane, Alpkit - all popular with enthuisasts rather than Joe public

    Did you know that they are a British company?

    Yes - shame they moved their manufacturing from the North East to the Far East though!!!

    Do you think they are of good quality?

    Some items are no doubt excellent but others seem to be designed with the high street in mind rather than specialists

    What age group in particular would buy from Berghaus?

    18-30?

    Do you visit their flagship stores, buy their items from other stores or do you shop online?

    I don't buy Berghaus but can't help seeing their massive presence in the likes of Go Outdoors - a retailer who sadly will no doubt lead to the demise of many local specialist outdoor shops where you get personal service and expert advice.

    How much would you spend a year on Berghaus items?

    Nothing

    To me Berghaus are associated with the Bonnington brigade -- mainstream, pipe-smoking, establishment mountaineers with big teams and sponsorship. They were never cutting edge in product development (though I like Yeti gaiters), and I think other UK brands have put out far better products (Mountain Equipment, Rab, Montane).

    Berghaus stuff is bland. It's a bland brand. Worn by bland people.

    What do you like about Berghaus?

    They used to be good but I preferred Karrimor (Rucksacks), Yeti Gaiters

    What do you dislike about Berghaus?

    Too much aimed at the fashion/High st market, I can't be bothered trawling through all the rubbish to find the good stuff that undoubtedly still exists. Not as bad as Karrimor but not far off.

    Do you think they are affordable?

    The good stuff seems really overpriced compared to the competition.

    Who is a good alternative to Berghaus?

    If you're talking about actual outdoors gear rather than high stfashion then apart from the non UK brands there's RAB, Montane, Mountain Equipment.

    Did you know that they are a British company?

    Yes

    Do you think they are of good quality?

    Probably, at the top end.

    What age group in particular would buy from Berghaus?

    Probably some people who remember them being solely aimed at the Outdoors sector and are prepared to search for the good stuff, a much larger percentage who never venture into the hills butthinkthat Berghaus still convey an outdoors image and those who see them as a fashion brand like TNF.

    Do you visit their flagship stores, buy their items from other stores or do you shop online?

    No

    How much would you spend a year on Berghaus items?

    While they remain as they are, nothing.

    That sounds pretty negative but I believe they can regain their former position if they forget the fashion sector, concentrate on the real outdoors and show some creativity. They can only trade on past glories for so long, already there's a generation spending serious money on proper kit that see Berghaus as an alternative to Timberland/TNF etc, not as a serious contender for their cash.

    What do you like about Berghaus? They are a tried and tested product, which produce quality in amgonst the quantity. The new range of gear is of a high standard that you should expect when paying top dollar.

    What do you dislike about Berghaus? Back in the day the bams used to wear 'bergo' its becoming a rare sight these days - superdry has taken over.

    Do you think they are affordable? No (+£70 for a decent winter fleece on their website, total rip off when they are made out of plastic bottles)

    Who is a good alternative to Berghaus? All top end outdoor gear companies.

    Did you know that they are a British company? no

    Do you think they are of good quality? sublime (except the big wall)

    What age group in particular would buy from Berghaus? 14+

    Do you visit their flagship stores, buy their items from other stores or do you shop online? online

    How much would you spend a year on Berghaus items? £270 just bought the attrition
