Berghaus has teamed up with climbing icon Sir Chris Bonington and creative outfit Casa Colombo to present a new short film titled A Cold Embrace.

As the UK temperatures plummet, A Cold Embrace combines reworked original footage from the 1970s and 80s with a narration by Sir Chris Bonington that reflects on the beauty that lies within the coldest environments and highest mountains on earth. Additionally, the film explores the intimate connection between humans and the cold, with the film’s overarching message being to urge people to get outside and embrace nature.

Sir Chris Bonington’s climbing career started in the 1950s when he achieved multiple first ascents and led pioneering expeditions to the greater ranges of the world. Meanwhile, Sir Chris has also been working with Berghaus since 1984 as a brand ambassador, where he has played a role in the development and testing of key products, including industry-leading gear that is essential for expeditions in the coldest of conditions. 

Now, for his latest collaboration that was developed as part of the Berghaus campaign platform Cold Studies, Sir Chris Bonington showcases products that can keep people outside for longer. The campaign is also linked to Berghaus’ latest high-performance insulated apparel, featuring technologies such as water-resistant Hydrodown, a groundbreaking innovation that Berghaus introduced to the outdoor market over a decade ago.  

Commenting on his new collaboration, Sir Chris Bonington said: “Life is a process of learning. If life is easy, simple, and flat, you never learn anything. Then if you do face real adversity, you’re not in a shape to cope with it. Cold can thrill and if you are thrilled about what’s around you, you’re going to function that much better. Get out there and just immerse yourself in it, and if you do that, life is going to be much richer.”
