Sprayway Hydrolite II (2014)

£110.00

A weight of 578g (size men’s L) makes the Sprayway Hydrolite II instantly appealing. I also like the location of the pockets as they can be easily accessed while wearing a rucksack. The hood gets a wired peak so it can be moulded to provide a really good visor, even if you’ve just unstuffed the hood from the collar or your ...

Sprayway Walking Rainpant (2014)

£60.00

Sprayway Walking Rainpants are slightly better than some lower-priced options as they have a mesh lining to improve comfort. The fabric is Sprayway’s HydroDry, which can’t boast the same lab test results for breathability as higher-priced trousers, but thanks to that mesh lining it’s a good, comfortable option if you’re on a budget. In terms of design you get an ...

Sprayway Reactor (2014)

£80.00

The Sprayway Reactor has a nylon shell and Inso/therm insulation, and comes with a fixed hood and two large chest pockets. The pockets are big enough for OS maps and can be accessed while wearing a rucksack with a hipbelt. The hood gets a volume adjuster and face drawcords, but it doesn’t turn with the head as easily as would ...

Sprayway Scorch Hoodie (2014)

£75.00

The Sprayway Scorch Hoodie is made from Exo/therm Stretch. This provides a medium level of wind resistant, similar to Polartec 200 Micro, but it has a closer knit on the outside to give it more abrasion resistance, while on the inside it has a more brushed appearance. The result is that it does not feel quite as warm as Polartec ...

Sprayway Santiago/Atlanta Rainpant (2013)

£40.00

The addition of a lining makes low-priced overtrousers far more comfortable, and this means the Sprayway Santiago/Atlanta Rainpant is a good option for those with limited funds. The trouser benefits from a calf-length zip so it can more easily be put on without removing boots, although this is still not as easy as when the trouser has a full-length zip ...

Sprayway Eos (2013)

£150.00

It doesn’t look as swish or technical as pricier ones, but Gore-Tex fabric ensures it's waterproof and breathes well. The face fabric is soft and not too noisy, and there’s a mesh lining which helps wick away sweat. It hasn’t got a waterproof zip, but this means the zip’s very easy to operate, and there’s a Velcro-secured storm flap to ...

Sprayway SX2 (2013)

£150.00

The three-pole semi-geodesic tent design has been a backpacking favourite for many years thanks to its well-proven stability, which makes it ideal for more challenging conditions than other tents. The Sprayway SX2 uses this familiar design to produce a model that’s very well-priced for what you’re getting. The tent pitches outer-first with three poles sliding into sleeves that extend around ...

Sprayway Nyx/Eos (2013)

£150.00

The Sprayway Nyx (men’s)/Eos (women’s) is a former winner of a Trail ‘Best in Test’ award in Spring 2012, and it’s still a great a jacket. It’s made from Gore-Tex Performance Shell, which isn’t as breathable as the higher-priced versions of Gore-Tex but it’s still perfectly good and just as waterproof. There’s a mesh lining to add a bit more ...

Sprayway Odyssey (2012)

£160.00

The Odyssey is a well-featured 2-layer Gore-Tex jacket at an incredibly competitive price. It’s a decent length, and the cuffs are armed with both Velco and elastic. The handwarmer pockets are mesh-lined so offer some ventilation, and will just about take a map; and there’s a single internal pocket that’s good for a phone or similar. The hood is excellent: ...

Sprayway Reactor (2013)

£90.00

The Reactor, a brand new jacket, is a decent effort from Sprayway, and it hits a number of pleasing chords – the sweetest being in the wallet, as it’s half the cost of the priciest we looked at. An adjustable hood with a stiffened peak and a massive pocket with room for an OS map (one of only two jackets ...

Sprayway Octane 30 (2013)

£50.00

Sprayway isn’t a brand I’d normally consider when recommending rucksacks, but the Octane 30 has pulled off the clever trick of providing a reasonable set of features at a price that sits between the budget £30 packs and the popular £80-100 price range. The result is a product that’s ideal for most hillwalkers. So you get a back system with ...

Sprayway Odyssey/Azaria (2012)

£160.00

The Sprayway Odyssey (men’s)/Azaria (women’s) is made from Gore-Tex Performance Shell, which is not quite as breathable as the higher-priced versions of Gore-Tex but still very good. For added comfort you get a mesh lining inside and the body length is typical of many modern jackets, being able to keep the bum dry. There are two main pockets, and these ...

Sprayway Escape Pant (2012)

£40.00

Lightweight, comfortable and and cheap too! The TecWeave fabric is very soft and feels great against the skin, stretching really easily with movement. The fit is slimline, with narrow, drawcord-adjustable ankles to prevent them flapping in the breeze and getting muddy. They breathe well and wick sweat away quickly, and there’s a DWR finish to repel water. A really comfortable ...

Sprayway Nyx/Eos 2012 (2012)

£125.00

From the word go the Sprayway Nyx / Eos is a very comfortable jacket thanks to the use of a mesh lining inside the Gore-Tex Performance Shell, which has higher waterproofness and breathability ratings than many materials featured here. Put it on and it has a relatively soft feel, although it is very short and exposes more of your waist ...

Sprayway Zao (2012)

£160.00

Of all the jackets on test, the Sprayway Zao is the only one to have a Gore-Tex outer shell, making it waterproof – rather than simply water-resistant. An insulating jacket suitable for use even in heavy rain or snow will keep you warm, and it means the insulation is well-protected against the wet too. But the problem for walkers is ...

Sprayway W.N.W (2012)

£110.00

This jacket is new for 2011, although it’s actually an update of a classic model from the Sprayway line. It’s a straightforward, midweight fleece with an added Windstopper membrane. This wind protection boosts the warmth rating of the top without adding to the bulk, in a similar way to many soft shells. That extra layer of material also makes it ...

Sprayway Solstice (2012)

£35.00

This base-layer is made from eco-friendly Cocona fabric, made from the activated carbon of recycled coconut shells. It’s really soft to the touch, and the activated carbon wicks away sweat very quickly indeed. It makes the fabric very breathable too. The carbon doesn’t do a lot to prevent bad odours, though – so unless you’re one of those women that ...

Sprayway Spectre

£170.00

This jacket is ideally suited to hillwalking. Two-layer Gore-Tex provides the waterproofing and breathability without feeling overly technical and crunchy. When it’s warm there are a couple of large underarm vents to draw away the heat. The cut is quite short but there’s a drop tail to cover your bum. The two waist pockets are long enough to reach over ...

Sprayway Rio

£40.00

Classically designed trousers made from a polycotton fabric with a soft outer finish. The waist is semi-elasticated and comes with a belt so you can fine-tune things if needed. The fabric feels reassuringly tough, although there’s no stretch in it, so they’re less comfortable to walk in than some. They’ve got some nice features, though, including drawcords at the ankles ...

Sprayway Stella

£20.00

A tall, slim and lightweight pack that only costs an unbelievable £20. Features are kept to a minimum, although it boasts two pockets in the lid, a zipped pocket inside, and two side mesh pockets that will take a water bottle. The main compartment is long and narrow, with a single-buckle lid and drawcord closure. It’s a nicely styled pack ...

Sprayway Rhythm

£130.00

The Rhythm is a pleasant jacket to wear with a rugged outer fabric that avoids some of the plasticky feeling you often get on the inside of some lightweight jackets. The Cocona technology really does seem to work at increasing the breathability of the top, with moisture soon lifting away from the body and preventing any clamminess on the inside, ...

Sprayway Compass (male)/Escape (female) 2011

£30.00

The fabric used in the Sprayway Compass / Escape shorts is two-way stretch so they are great if you struggle with getting a good fit. There is also stretch in the waist so again these can expand around  a tubby tum or hug a neater waistline. There is no belt provided but you get belt loops in case you want ...

Sprayway Hydrolite

£60.00

These are rugged, cleanly designed bad-weather trousers. The Hydrolite fabric is waterproof, with good breathability levels and the huge side zips offer such cracking venting that you never need sweat in them. The zips extend about four-fifths of the way up the leg and make them a doddle to get into. Although exposed, they do have an internal storm flap ...

Sprayway Equinox Zip

£35.00

The coconut-derived fabric in this top gives it something of a rough edge that can be a problem if used for long periods, with chafing becoming a bit of an issue. It is great at wicking away moisture during regular activity, although there is a bit of a problem with the collar – the double-layered fabric making it effective during ...

Sprayway Warm Challenger Pant 2011

£70.00

The Sprayway Warm Challenger Pant weigh 446g (size men’s L); four-way stretch fabric; two map-sized hip pockets; two zipped seat pockets; zipped thigh vents; two leg lengths; ideal general cold-weather walking trouser. But as these trousers are so warm, they are limited to cold winter days; no ankle cuff adjustment or internal gaiter for winter.
