The Cerberus mid-layer fleece from Sprayway is just one of those items that you immediately fall in love with. Mine arrived yesterday morning, just before I headed out onto Murton Pike for a wild and windy stomp, which was impeccable timing on the part of Sprayway, so I threw it on over a light base layer and went for it.

It benefits from a simple yet technical design – full length zip, hand-warmer pockets, hood, sleeves with thumb-loops, and nicely cut, which all combine to give you what feels like a very good quality piece of kit for all those mountain adventures.

On Murton Pike it was a bit drizzly here and there, mostly dry, but with a stiff westerly wind blowing giving a wind chill of -1.7C. The Cerberus Jacket kept me nice and snug on the ascent, which is remarkable for such an inexpensive jacket. Sprayway have used their exo-therm technology which makes it light-weight and quick to dry, but adds remarkable insulating properties.

You can buy the Cerberus Jacket for around £50, which is an absolute give-away for such a high quality garment. Already I’ve used it for a number of activities, in addition to my jaunt up Murton Pike. It felt great for a quick scramble yesterday afternoon, and I loved the feel and cut of it so much that I kept it on for a mountain rescue night navigation training session last night – right at the start of Storm Desmond – and I finished the course still feeling warm, dry, and loving the Cerberus more and more. Follow this link for more information on the Cerberus Jacket then nip out and buy your own for yourself or as a Christmas present for someone else. The Cerberus really is that superb.
