No nonsense!, 09 March 2012
By Jimbob (Witney)
For the price, this jacket is exceptional!
Had never bought a Sprayway garment before, but will certainly be buying another! It is a no nonsense, quality waterproof. No gimicks, no fancy bits added, just a well designed jacket made from a decent waterproof fabric!
It is lightweight (o.k - not ultralight like a Goretex Paclite jacket) - but certainly light enough to stash in your rucksack and not know its there.
The quality and feel of the jacket is very good indeed, on a par with jackets costing £200.
The hood is fantastic, it cocoons your head offering protection in the worst downpour (similar hood to good quality Berghaus jackets), and allows complete head movement. It is also easy, and fast, to adjust.
The styling of the jacket is great aswell, I bought the black jackt with yellow cuff, and really like the look of it.
The only downside of the jacket, for me, is the length, it is rather short, another inch in length and this jacket would be a serious contender!

Wore for the first time on skiddaw in quite miserable conditions and very cold weather.
Well worth the Card price i paid for this jacket. first time i have purchased Sprayway, would recomend to anyone.
Did not need the old Windstopper just fleece and a T-shirt was sufficient. The only downside is the way the hood folds, don't like it, otherwise would have given a 5 star rating.
Great jacket, poor hood., 03 March 2011

Great fitting and performing jacket. Lightweight, breathable and good water resistance. Shame the hood isn't as good, in the wet I don't even bother as it flops about all over the place and it's impossible to get it right (unless you have a helmet on, or a massive head)

Very pleased with this purchase, Nice and lightweight, breathable, and above all waterproof.
Looks a lot more expensive than it is.
