This way comfort and freedom of movement are perfectly guaranteed both from the inside and from the outside. In addition to the iconic nylon Ultralight 80gr down jackets with silk effect are now available new shapes and colors. A pleasant return of Zip-out System: a new smart opening technology with double slide fast tear motion.
Herno was founded in 1948 in Lesa, on the shores of Lake Maggiore, by Giuseppe Marenzi and his wife Alessandra Diana. It was just after the war and Giuseppe, having lost his job after years of working for Siai-Marchetti, which produced aeroplanes during World War II, sought a new job with a company that manufactured raincoats. The climate around Lake Maggiore is extremely humid and rainy, so well made raincoats are in demand. Herno was thus founded on the basis of opportunity, intuition and inventiveness. Its story starts with water; water from Lake Maggiore and the river Erno, which runs close to the company and gives it its name. It is a company that is still firmly connected to its roots.
