Sprayway Nyx/Eos 2010

The Sprayway Nyx/Eos general-purpose jacket weighs 576g (size L); 2-layer Gore-Tex Performance Shell with mesh lining for comfort; rolldown hood with wired peak and hood movement; main zip gets external stormflap; two large pockets. But short body length; pocket access easily obscured by rucksack belts; higher price brings better breathability.

The Sprayway Nyx/Eos’s excellent hood and price are let down by the pockets and length of this jacket.
