We at KerryClimbing are delighted to announce SPRAYWAY as our recommended and official clothing brand!!!

It’s well over 25 years now since I began hiking, mountaineering and climbing and over the many years I have purchased, trialled and left utterly disappointed and let down by many different manufacturers and brands. Then I discovered SprayWay!!!

I can in all honesty claim that they are without doubt my chosen and favoured go to brand of highly functional, comfortable, practical and ever reliable clothing.

Recently while reluctantly looking to replace my aged, worn out and battered Sprayway shell jacket I made contact with the excellent Sprayway team.  These guys and gals who went far and beyond the call of duty and duly kitted me out with some fantastic new SprayWay garments to keep me warm, dry and safe from the elements on my daily work as a guide & instructor on the high mountains and crags.

SprayWay  began business in 1974 as a designer and manufacturer of waterproof jackets for sailing, but quickly branched out into good, well-made, unfussy outdoor clothing – long before such clothing became commonplace. Born in the hills and honed by the weather of the Peak District, Sprayway has been trusted by walkers and outdoor enthusiasts of all ages for well over forty years and continue to make excellent, well-priced and cool looking range of fleeces, performance tops and an impressive large range of highly dependable and reliable waterproof jackets.
Sprayway truly represents technical excellence and authenticity, giving their customers the confidence and inspiration to venture into the most beautiful and breath-taking spaces.

We at KerryClimbing are only delighted to name SprayWay as our recommended, favoured and official clothing brand and look forward to posting many updates and blogposts highlighting, reviewing and singing the praises of  its many super products.
