Up in the down
Reviewed By Andrew, 02 Dec 2014

There is nothing like down for warmth. I often get cool but then too hot in a jacket, this is a good compromise, core keeps warm but I can keep comfortable. Well made, doesn't leak feathers (so far), not too bulky. Recommended.



Reviewed By Stuart, 23 Sep 2014

Warm, well made jacket. Extremely warm and at the price compared to the north face version, I don't see much of a visible difference. Very happy with it.



What a bargain!
Reviewed By Natalie, 23 Dec 2013

Purchased this fantastic gilet in the Cambridge Store today. My husband particularly wanted a Berghaus for the warmth and good quality. It is a lovely lightweight waistcoat that looks and feels stylish to wear.



Fantastic gillet
Reviewed By Susan, 17 Dec 2013

This product is extremely warm and comfortable to wear as a extra layer under an outer coat when needed but for those milder days is very warm when worn over a fleece top or a jumper. It is also very lightweight so you don't feel weighed down as with some extra layers



Nice comfortable vest
Reviewed By Lorraine, 17 Dec 2013

Despite some reviews sayIng that the feathers leak out through the stitching I found that buying a size larger that there is no pressure on the stitching so therefore no leakage. A lot of people probably buy this vest to fit snugly. If you buy a size larger, you will not have that pressure on the stitching. You will find this problem with polyester filling as we'll. so my suggestion is to buy larger. The jacket is just great and I am extremely happy with it. I highly recommend it.

This is a great vest that keeps you very warm and gives freedom to move. Great to use in any situation.



Brilliant value for money!
Reviewed By Huw, 11 Jun 2013

I bought this vest with the £40 off deal and it's been excellent! The only down side is that I find feathers coming out of it now and again, but I guess that's inevitable. Would highly recommend!

Shockingly POOR Vest..WARNING..
Reviewed By Jeff, 10 Mar 2013

Purchased both the Black and the Grey Vest, MASSIVE MISTAKE. As some reviewers have already stated they "Leak feathers" constantly, forget about useing a backpack or sitting down for any length of time when wearing as even the slightest of pressure on your back and the feather leak constantly. As Cotswold are the only stockists I believe these Manaslu Vests are 2nd's or Fakes..There is no other explanation for such poor quality from Berghaus.


Comment from Cotwold Outdoor

Posted By Customer Services, 14 Aug 2014

Hi Jeff, Thanks for your feedback. It is normal for some down to escape from this type of garment but if you feel that it was an unacceptable amount you would of course be able to return it to us, either in store or by mail to our returns department. The Manaslu Vest is made exclusively for us by Berghaus, which is why you have not seen them on sale anywhere else. Cotswold Outdoor do not sell fake goods.



Great Value For Money!!!!

Bought this body warmer and use it most of the time! Great quality and well made! recommended to friends to get one and buy it from cotswolds due to great price and friendly and helpful service recieved!!!



Great value for money, functional gilet
Reviewed By Martin, 06 Feb 2013

The Manaslu vest ticks most boxes for a fucntional down gilet and at the reduced price of £70 is great value but a the full asking price of £110 it begins to cede ground to its major rivals, the North Face Nupste Vest and Rab Micolight. It is down but only duck down and feather mix compared with it's rivals' 100% goose down and as its fill power is lower, needs to be bulkier to be as warm. Although it is reasonably packable it won't pack into its own pocket nor does it come with a stuff sack which is a nuisance. Useful feature are the fleece collar, chest pocket, DWR finish, neck zip garage and slightly longer length than its rivals. The one thing that made me going looking for its rivals and be prepared to pay more though was the single panel on the shoulders which made it very bulky at the back of the neck and as well as the Michelin Man effect quilted vests always come with had a bit of a hunchback effect. Great value but not perfect.



Okay for £70
Reviewed By Steve, 18 Jan 2013

I've used my Manaslu Vest for several months and at the discounted price, it's about worth it. It fits well, is very comfortable and certainly warm. It's downside,mentioned by a few other reviewers, is it's "leaking" down. It's not only the stitches that the down comes through. Don't wear it over dark woollens as they will be speckled with white feathers and they do not come off easily! If it's for serious outdoor wear, I'd recommend considering a better-made alternative - maybe Rab. You get what you pay for. This vest seems to be made exclusively for Cotswold,in which case the full RRP of £110.00 is a little disingenuous.



Excellent Gillet with great price!
Reviewed By Hugh, 14 Dec 2012

I went into the Preston store to buy this Gillet and the service that i recieved was excellent. The staff were really helpful when i asked about the product and she was very knowledgable. The product is really nice, it doesnt only look good but also is very warm and comfortable. The price is great, at only £70 (couldnt find it anywhere else for cheaper). Overall, really good experiance, i would recomend it to anyone who is looking for a stylish, comfortable and cheap gillet.

Bring on the winter!!!
Reviewed By Andy, 30 Sep 2012

This vest was by far the comfiest I tried on in the store.
With 600 down fill this will be more than enough warmth for those dry winter days and will fit in we'll with my other Berghaus gear....Bring on the cold weather I am more than ready now :)

Great vest for the low price.
Reviewed By Alex, 07 Apr 2012

At full price this doesn't compare well to the much higher quality down in vests like the Rab Neutrino, but at the discounted price it's a really warm and well designed item. Sizing came up fairly standard.

After dropping numerous unsubtle hints, I received this jacket for a Christmas present from my partner. I have been unable to take it off since! It's perfectly warm, comfortable, and feels really well made. Even the pockets feel warm! Oh yes, there are no calories involved!



Excellent vest
Reviewed By Alistair, 08 Jan 2012

I've bought a few different vests over the years and was looking to add a black one to my collection. My first stop was North Face and I was originally going in-store to buy a Nuptse 2 vest in black. Then I saw the offer on the Manaslu and thought I'd try it on. Firstly, the material has a nicer feel compared to the North Face vest and it is not as bulky but just as warm. The fit is snug and the soft finish fabric on the collar is also a nice touch. I'm really pleased with this purchase and with a reduction of £40 it represents really good value!

Great insulating jacket keeps you warm on those freezing cold nights standing outside watching football for example. I found it very cosy and kept me very warm. Also great for wearing when hiking very good source of insulation kept me warm but not too sweaty. Just a great all round jacket.

I was originally going to buy a TNF Nupste vest but when I tried on this because of the offer price I was very impressed. The lining material is very comfortable and it has a good high collar also with a soft lining. The chest pocket is also useful and if you can get one at the offer price I'd highly recommend it.



Perfect Choice!

I was looking for The North Face vest but my size was out of stock. I decided then to try Berghaus Vest and I have to say that it was a really good choice. It is a very good quality and warm vest with deep pockets and fit perfectly with my Berghaus fleece. Highly recommended vest!!!
