Our Retail Trainer Angela Coates recently spent the day with retail staff from Berghaus stores putting products from our new Autumn/Winter range to the test. Here Angela shares her adventure.
With Berghaus stores just receiving their new exciting Autumn Winter 12 range it was time for the staff to get to grips with the new technologies and products.
Staff from Metro Centre, Dalton Park and Gretna stores came up to the Berghaus Head Office for an in depth look into some of the new pieces.
Firstly they were tasked with a tricky scramble along the coastline near Sunderland, a great chance to test some of the new SS13 Vapour Storm Jackets that have just been launched early online, not to mention having some fun conquering some boulder problems!
Another product that was getting a good test was the recently acclaimed “best in test” BIOFLEX Rucksack. The uneven rocky terrain provided a great platform for a real test-staff loved the bag (they didn’t know we had filled it full of sand bags) Sshhh!!
After the morning walk it was back to the office for a session with MtnHaus Guru James Hodgson who took us through the all new Ramche and Ilam jacket and a great demonstration on the benefits of Hydrodown™, staff were left spitting feathers they were that impressed!
Berghaus are very lucky to have our own in house Lab so staff were given the opportunity to go through all the machines that we use for testing fabrics. Fabric testing goes through a number of vigorous Lab tests aswell as being put through a minimum of 200 hours on the hill testing.
Everyone had a great action packed fun day and are now empowered with oodles of knowledge for the season ahead!
