Sprayway Orsk 3-1 Jacket
I love getting out and about in the great outdoors; it is so invigorating and often awe inspiring. Having the right gear adds to the over-all enjoyment, so I was pleased to be able to test and review the Sprayway Orsk 3-1 jacket.
As you would expect from a company such as Sprayway, the Orsk 3-1 is a quality jacket, and made up of two separate garments; an Inso/Therm inner layer, and a Hydro/Dry outer. For those who are not aware, Sprayway describe their Hydro/Dry system as: Waterproof, breathable and windproof technology. Hydro/Dry® keeps you dry, warm and comfortable whatever your adventure. And their Inso/Therm system as: exclusive 100% Polyester insulation material offering an extremely high warmth to weight ratio. Insulation weights vary from 20gm2 upto 150gm2.
The Sprayway Orsk is a pretty light garment for a 3-1 jacket, and – for the weather at the time I am reviewing this (UK winter) – it is really warm; you’ll be pleased to learn that it is fully waterproof and breathable too. On the outer jacket there are two external zippered pockets, and one internal zippered pocket. Velcro adjustable cuffs offer a nice fit, and help prevent any pesky breezes making their way up your sleeves. There is a good full length zipper to the front, and a fully adjustable hood complete with wired peak. At the bottom hem there is a drawcord, again to prevent wind breezing up.
The inner garment is where the Orsk gets most of its warmth from. This inner has elasticated cuffs, and there are two zippered pockets. Again the inner – when worn separately – fastens with a full length zipper. The inner jacket fastens inside the outer by two zips (one on each side), and by three pop/press studs; one at the neck area, and one on each sleeve near the wrist. The hem of the inner is elasticated affording a nice, snug, comfortable fit. The Orsk inner is really light.
As stated, this is a quality item and the materials used both look and feel quality. If looked after properly I am sure that the Sprayway Orsk 3-1 jacket will last a fair while.
The Sprayway Orsk 3-1 jacket costs approximately £180.00 / €203.00 and can be purchased from Sprayway UK
