The Sprayway Torridon jacket has at last been relaunched. It was first designed in the late 80s and was one of the most popular hill walking jackets available. At first glance it looks the same as it did when Maggie introduced the Pole tax. It has seen a few updates but essentially this jacket is still what a proper Scottish hill walking jacket should be.
Overall the jacket feels super durable thanks to the 3 layer gore tex that has the PFD-free technology and a 75 denier Recycled Polyester face fabric.
A decent wired hood with volume adjusters.
A proper zip. Not those piddly lightweight things that some manufacturers think are suitable.
The pockets are set high enough that you can use them with a harness or waist belt. The pockets are huge and can easily take a map or gloves. The back of the pocket is Gore tex, which means that even with the pocket open or stuffed full of wet gloves, you stay dry (try doing that with some of the increasing amount of jackets that have mesh lined pockets).
