The new Ramche 2.0 Down Jacket is a highly technical down jacket that uses the best & lightest materials to keep you warm and dry.

Description  Features

With warmth-to-weight precision, the MtnHaus Ramche 2.0 builds on it's predecessor's success to deliver a lighter and warmer version that is the new standard in mountaineering down jackets. Mountaineers have long searched for the optimum balance of warmth to weight and the Ramche 2.0 delivers just that. Scientifically engineered to deliver precision heat zones through body mapping technology, every down baffle has been analysed for optimum down fill and performance in conjunction with the body's thermoregulatory framework.

The original Ramche featured our revolutionary world's first hyrdrophobic down and for the Ramche 2.0 we have an update to this ground breaking technology - Hydrodown, powered by Nikwax. This PFC free hydrophobic down provides water repellency for up to 16 hours and is RDS certified for guaranteed ethical sourcing of down products. In addition to this impressive insulation technology, the Ramche 2.0 also contains an internal reflect mesh over the core body areas to provide up to 10% greater thermal efficiency. A highly durable 7 denier outer fabric completes the package - at 100% stronger than equivalent weight fabrics, this is the perfect choice to give your jacket unrivalled durability against the rock.
 
  • Low-profile climbing helmet compatible hood with front face adjustment that also adjusts at the rear of the head.
  • Reflect aluminium mesh sewn into core of jacket reflects body heat back, raising the warmth by 10%
  • Ergonomically shaped easy-grab zip pulls for use with gloves
  • Single hand adjustment at lower hem to prevent weather ingress and heat loss
  • Adjustable cuffs with easy-grab tabs that can be handled well with gloves. Durable hook and loop fabric around cuffs that work in wet, snowy and icy conditions
  • Super fine brushed microfleece on chin guard to provide comfortable skin contact
  • Two-way YKK VISLON Centre-front zip that can be comfortably used with a climbing or rucksack harness
  • Two large hand pockets with wind strips behind pocket zips
  • One internal zipped pocket on left-hand side
  • One internal large stretch mesh pocket on right-hand side
  • Offset baffle construction eliminates cold spots in core of body

Berghaus' Ramche 2.0 Down Jacket is basically a whole different jacket compared to the old Ramche Hyper Down Jacket. Unfortunately it is heavier than the its predecessor (although Berghaus say otherwise), but that's down to important changes that ultimately make the jacket warmer than before.

The new Ramche 2.0 features a unique offset baffle construction in the body to eliminate cold spots along the seam lines, ensuring a consistent barrier of warm down around your body. It also has Reflect aluminium mesh sewn into the core of the jacket to reflect body heat back into the jacket, raising the warmth by up to 10%.

Other updated features include a helmet compatible hood and a mixture of velcro and elasticated cuffs. Overall it provides excellent warmth for it's weight.

  • Review Title - Ramche 2 vs Crux
  • Review - Went on a leisurely 45 minutes walk at 4C with a wind speed of approx 30mph on a very damp and humid night and I felt pretty toasty wearing only a 300g fleece under the jacket. Mainly to keep the jacket clean but it also served to stop the chilling movement of air between the bare skin and the jacket. If you are sensitive you may feel slightly cooler in the arms on account of the stitch through construction here but it's only slight if you are using other layers. On account of this slight imperfection I can only offer 4 out of 5 stars. Some say in an ideal world it would be nice to be able to be warm and not look like a stuffed pillow and this jacket tries to achieve that as the loft is not excessive and it has a slightly slim cut. Unfortunately for me I seem to be a bit limited with the number of layers I can use before the loft of the jacket is compromised due to compression from within. I find this mainly in the forearms a bit. (A differential cut could have been used for this.) Anyway I'm a slim guy (100cm chest) and I find that I can get a medium thick base layer and a fluffy hoodie on under this jacket before loft in the jacket starts to be effected. So you may be limited if it gets much colder than expected. Some reviews say you may be able to get down to minus 20 C in this jacket. The question is, given the above limitation, how long would you servive? Who knows, if you are a seriously gnarly dude you may just do it. But personally I think minus 12 or maybe 15 degree C would be more realistic for this jacket (depending on your level of activity) unless you started layering on top. I have not used it in very cold temperatures yet but I'm looking to camp on top of a mountain in the lakes this winter. Bit worried about the fine outer material on this jacket so I try to use a light outer shell if there is any possible risk of scrapes in my activities like falling on rock or camping in a frozen forest. I find that a lightweight, breathable raincoat does the job nicely as it also doubles for wet weather. (However, it's fair to say that I accidentally scraped the jacket lightly against a brick wall once but after careful examination I found no damage.) The thing that I like most about this jacket is that I have used it for about 4 weeks now and have not encountered a single rogue down plume which is just excellent. I utterly loath seeing my insulation running amuck, not staying where it's meant to be. In addition there is good control over the hood when not wearing a helmet with the ingenious elastic cord design. One cord, two toggles. I also like the cuffs which are a Velcro strap and elastic combination. Once you have adjusted the Velcro to your liking the elastic automatically adjusts around your wrists next time. Saves a lot of hassle adjusting the Velcro straps each time. I'm only 5 foot 3 inches tall but a medium fits perfectly around the chest with a bit of space for a layer or two and this size for me gives complete bum coverage which from bitter experience I find essential in severe cold and windy weather. The jacket seems to have quite a wide comfort range, probably on account of the quality down so is usable in more moderate temperature and you can layer up or down in temperature swings. The only comparable jacket which I know to be warmer with a tad more space for layers is the Crux Pyro which uses all box wall construction and is very warm more so than the Ramche 2. Sadly the big problem with the Crux Pyro is that you have zero control over the hood if you are not wearing a helmet. It has a huge hood which just pulls down over your face if you use the clinch around the face to stop cold air from biting your ears. I also think the Velcro straps around the cuffs are a bit weak. So unless you wear a helmet all the time the Bergaus is a more sensible choice (you can at least see where you are going) it's lighter and it's also usable in a more moderate temperature range like in the UK. So I'm very happy with the Bergaus Ramche 2. However, if warmth is your No 1 consideration and you're not bothered about the hood problem, go for the Crux Pyro.

We aim to ship all orders placed before 3pm the same day. The default shipping charge is 'Standard Delivery'. This is an airmail service which does not offer tracking but is very reliable. We have learned from experience that transit times for non-UK orders can be very unpredictable. To geographically close countries in the times are generally up to 4-5 days but can take a lot longer - we don't know why. Countries farther afield generally take longer but the spread of transit times is amazing, we have been notified of parcels arriving in Australia after 3 days and others taking a month and (rarely) longer than this.

So, while the shipping options for ROW are quite cheap the service time is unpredictable.
