outerwear

B

erg Outdoor, the Portugal-based
clothing and gear brand, creates
outerwear with five goals in mind:
it must be lightweight, versatile,
innovative, functional and sustainable.
The ultralight GERES Zero Gravity
down jacket ticks off all of those boxes.
Berg looked to Porcher Sport, the
French maker of high-performance
lightweight fabrics for paragliding,
parachuting and ballooning, to realize
inspiration for the outerwear.
The top layer is made of Porcher's
lightweight, recycled (second-grade
waste) parachute fabric and other
recycled components. The parachute
fabric is tear-resistant, foldable and
easy to pack. It's treated with a PU
coating developed by Porcher to
be water-repellent; the finishing
prevents droplets of water from
soaking into the fabric under
moderate rainfall conditions.
To protect against cold, the jacket is
lined with a Primaloft® Gold insulation
down blend, a combination of 30
percent ultrafine Primaloft Gold fibers
and 70 percent water-repellent goose
down for a superior warmth-to-weight
ratio. The design protects against
harsh conditions while remaining
lightweight and breathable as well
as insulating, even against damp or
wet conditions. For more information,

The stylish GERES Zero Gravity down jacket, created by Berg Outdoor, was the ISPO
Awards 2019 Gold Winner in the outdoor category due to its innovative performance,
high-quality workmanship and sustainable features. Photo: Porcher Industries.
