Sprayway – Men’s Maxen GORE-TEX Jacket
Blacks have just launched an exclusive Sprayway range, called ‘The Rain Returns’, and have very kindly sent me the Sprayway – Men’s Maxen GORE-TEX Jacket for review.
For those of you who may be unfamiliar with Sprayway, they were founded in Manchester back in the early seventies manufacturing specialist technical outdoor apparel.
For those of you familiar to the brand you’ll know all about Spraway’s wide range of superior quality products and the cutting edge technology they use with their innovative fabrics.
Sprayway – Men’s Maxen GORE-TEX Jacket Two Layer Packable Lightweight Review
The Maxen jacket is your everyday essential walking staple jacket – extremely smart but incredibly practical.
This waterproof and windproof mountain jacket from Sprayway is very light weight with it’s GORE-TEX outer meaning it remains breathable in warmer temperatures as well as completely blocking out the cold.
The hood and cuffs are easily adjustable and there are two generously sized mesh lined venting zip-sealed side pockets. The wire peaked hood in particular is designed not to slip over your face and stays in place really well, especially in wind. It’s fixed and adjustable in two ways and rolls away easily in to the collar.
It feels roomy on the inside and comes with an internal stash pocket with a mesh/taffeta combination lining, but looks fairly tailored on the outside so doesn’t get in the way of getting your rucksack on and off.
