The Lightweight Waxed Anorak combines the natural rain protection of waxed cotton with the simplicity of your favorite hoodie into a minimalist shell that packs small enough to take anywhere.
Superlight 3.3-oz. fabric is treated with a special dry-wax finish that causes water to bead up and roll off the surface. Constructed with the same techniques developed for WWII parachute fabric, the ripstop cotton incorporates a cross-hatched pattern of strong threads into the weave to provide tear strength and prevent punctures from spreading.
A quarter-length front zipper provides ventilation or wind and rain protection when zipped up to the neck, and boasts a zipper garage to prevent pinching. Within the large center-kangaroo pocket hides a zippered security pocket, which pulls double-duty as a storage pocket the entire shell can be stuffed into for easy packing. The forearms are reinforced with an additional fabric layer for added durability, and feature snap-adjustable cuffs for a custom fit. The extended side-hem zipper makes donning or removing this traditional lightweight shell a snap, and the hem and hood are drawcord-adjustable for maximum wind protection.
