Product description

The Berghaus Ramche Down 2.0 Jacket definitely sets the standards when it comes to ultra-light and extremely warm down jackets for mountaineers! Thanks to its perfect balance of warmth and weight, the Ramche Down 2.0 is ideal for beginning and expert alpine climbs alike. The jacket is engineered to deliver precise heat zones through body-mapping technology and does just that, even in the iciest of conditions. Plus, the so-called offset battle construction serves to eliminate cold spots, keeping you and your body's core warm! The hydrophobic goose down by Nikwax with 850 fill power in the original Ramche has now been upgraded: the PFC-free hydrophobic 90/10 down is water repellent for up to 16 hours and is RDS certified, which guarantees the ethical sourcing of down products. In addition to this impressive insulation technology, there is also a reflective mesh over the body of the jacket, providing up to 10% more thermal efficiency. The exceptionally tough XO Shell completes the package: The material is about 200% stronger than other fabric with a similar weight, making it the perfect choice for your mountain adventures!

The good and not so good

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.  (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.
