We take a closer look at Jottnar's £450 Bergelmir shell jacket which performed well on review with Alf Alderson.

Overall Score
Rugged build, great design
Rather expensive for a shell

New kids on the block Jottnar have got it spot on with the Bergelmir. The streamlined, articulated cut is not too loose, not too tight and feels super comfortable and the rugged, breathable and waterproof Polartec Neoshell fabric instils confidence that this is a jacket built to last.

The wired peak hood is helmet compatible and fully-adjustable whilst the two zipped, harness-compatible pockets will easily hold a pair of goggles or an OS map. Other than that you don’t get a lot of features (small zipped inner pocket, scooped adjustable cuffs, drop back, adjustable hem) but that’s all you need if you’ll be wearing a pack as most users of the Bergelmir probably will.

If you want one shell for everything from skiing and winter climbing to summer hill walking the Jottnar Bergelmir is an excellent, albeit quite pricy option.
