The Men's Anorak No. 8 was created to withstand tough conditions in the outdoors and mountains throughout the year. The hood can be adjusted for a perfect fit around the head, and a visor construction means that you can fold the visor back from two angles, depending on whether you want maximum wind protection or more peripheral visibility. When not being worn, the hood forms a high collar that keeps your neck warm.
In warmer weather, the zip can be unzipped and the opening unbuttoned and folded to the side to release excess heat. There are also long zips in the sides of this anorak that can be opened for ventilation and make it easier to put on and take off. The large kangaroo pouch in the front can be accessed both from the top and the sides. A drawcord in the back regulates the waist and another drawcord in the front adjusts the hem.
The main fabric is of the anorak is wind and water resistant G-1000 Eco with extra strong G-1000 HeavyDuty at the shoulders, sleeves and the extended back. The fabric and details were chosen to minimise their impact on the environment – for example most of the leather details are made from leftover pieces of leather.
