Sprayway Torino

A smart-looking but loose-fitting jacket. It is actually made from bamboo – a quick drying fabric with a lovely soft, although slightly rustly feel. The antibacterial quality means that the fabric will stay smelling good. It’s not fleece-lined so doesn’t provide much insulation, but works really well as an outer-layer on windy or damp days. Its lightweight, very breathable and will withstand a light shower. Mesh-lined pockets provide a flow of air, but elastic cuffs are too loose to trap warm air.
