This windproof fleece from Sprayway is on the huge side, with a loose, long body. The sleeves are also very baggy. A shame, as it has superb elasticated cuffs and the Polartec Windbloc fleece feels lovely against the skin. There’s no doubting its warmth or windproofing and the venting handwarmer pockets, which are at a good height for use with a rucksack and also have storage space for a map behind the lining, are excellent.
Colours: Dark chilli, lichen, navy, black
Fabric: Polartec Windbloc with DWR finish
Women’s version: No

Verdict: A one-time class leader that’s been pegged back by the competition, but it’s warm, comfortable, windproof and still a great jacket. Check the fit before buying.
