From the Mitsubishi fuelled Italian house clubs of the North West to the magical mushy season on the hills of the Pennines, the Berghaus Mera Peak 2000 jacket was all about the spiritual gatherings of GORE-TEX.

I remember first seeing the Mera Peak 2000 jacket in all its OG Glory at an old skool Zone night where One Nation white labels echoed through the speakers and Berghaus jackets were tied around waists on both the lads and the lasses. A spiritual gathering of GORE-TEX & youth culture that if you ever witnessed would stay with you some 20 years later. The in-tandem dance moves, the MC Wizards & the colour-blocking Berghaus jackets that just looked the bollocks with a Paul & Shark rugby shirt, a pair of wallabees and some corduroy Ralphs. The good news is the Berghaus Mera Peak 2000 GORE-TEX jacket is now revived for 2024 as part of a very special re-release.

Worn by everyone from Britpop royalty to Planet Earth explorers, Berghaus (which translates from German as Mountain House) is an iconic British outdoors brand that started in the North East back in the 1960s. A pioneer of technical outerwear, the Dean Street born brand was one of the very first European labels to use GORE-TEX technology with legendary silhouettes like the Mera Peak & the Trango becoming collectible grails. A fan favourite on the UK’s homegrown rave scene of the late 80s and early 90s, Berghaus gained a cult following from the high tempo Italian house nightclubs of the North West to the highest peaks of the Pennines. First released back in 1991, the Mera Peak is a fan favourite amongst the OG GORE-TEX wearers from the 90s & noughties to modem day Gorpcore enthusiasts.

Following various releases and updates since the early 90s, the Mera Peak 2000 now returns for 2024 which revives the original early noughties model. Featuring an updated GORE-TEX 2L fabric with plenty of pockets in typical Mera Peak fashion with the signature draw-cord at the waist for that classic Berghaus fit. Other highlights include an adjustable hood which folds away into its own collar and an internal chest pocket for secure storage of your essentials. Introduced in a classic colour-blocking colourway of pink & purple the Mera Peak 2000 GORE-TEX jacket is finished off with Berghaus branding to the left chest and OG Mera Peak branding to the left sleeve.
