The state of the art, second to none, cold winter…
Fabric: 100% ventile cotton
The state of the art, second to none, cold winter shell. There is nothing you'd rather be wearing on a loooong shitty, freezing your * off, day in the mountains. The ultimate storm gear, when things go really bad. Good for any trip to Antarctica, as well as those smaller,but just as nice adventures on your own backyard tundra.
I've had my Anojakke in professional use for 12 years -- sure, it does show some wear and tear, but works just as well. And that's the point - no DWR's, layers this n' that, that will fail to perform when worn out or just plain dirty. The warm, soft feel of cotton in arctic temperatures is a comfort when your beard is getting iced up. For any true cold climate activity, except maybe modern extremist alpine climbing. Excellent craftsmanship displayed in every detail: Hood, pockets, stormflaps, sturdy zippers, fail-safe velcro, cut to fit lots of nice warm sweaters underneath this unique polar garment.
I do have quite a few technical jackets too - Berghaus, Patagonia - they are nice in many situations - but when it comes to real business in the higher latitudes, this mountain jacket/anorakk gone parka is the one and only! (...oh, don't forget to buy that wolfskin furry brim for the hood..sorry all animal rights activists...stop whining, go develop some substitute material, so far nobody has.)
