Norrona Svalbard Cotton Anorak

Norrona Svalbard Cotton Anorak

I got the bungee cord colour and love it. Looks as much at home in town as it does in the wilds. Quite good windproofing. Ideal for windy dry weather. A looseish fit which helps when you are donning/doffing. Not too loose though - stick with your normal sizing. I was wearing this over the Finnskogen Warm 4 fleece in fairly stiff breezes at 2-3 Celcius and was pretty cosy while walking. Nice detailing. Zips on the two hand pockets and a zip across the kangaroo pocket, which also has a small slot sewn in to let you pass a headphone cable on the inside. The kangaroo pocket is quite shallow which I found good it keeps your valuables in a nice place (up high) when you pick up the pace. Very good quality fasteners (snap and zippers) and fittings. Fabric is quite a close weave and feels like pure quality. I didn't get it soaked but this seems to dry quite quickly after a shower. (I suppose this would depend on humidity of the climate you find yourself in). I would buy another if this one were to accidentally bite the dust somehow.
