Gear Review: Sprayway Maxen jacket

cc38c0a1-0a35-42b1-a646-e61238169534

A good waterproof jacket is one of the essentials for anyone who wants to spend any time walking on Britain’s hills.

Even in the height of summer, it’s safe to assume that those cloudless blue skies will vanish at some point and the weather will take a turn for the worse.

The Maxen is a smart, lightweight, two-layer Gore-Tex jacket that provides plenty of protection when the rain is falling and is easy to pack away if the sun comes out again.

The two side pockets are mesh lined to provide ventilation and the hood, hem and cuffs can be adjusted to ensure the wind and rain can’t get in.

he Maxen comes in a range of colours and for a Gore-Tex jacket it’s excellent value.

Expect to pay £180
