Advanced anorak for demanding treks throughout the year. Made from G-1000 Eco and G-1000 HD with adaptable storm hood, plenty of ventilation and practical pockets.
Anorak No. 8
DescriptionAnorak No. 8 was created to withstand tough conditions in the forest 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 zipper can be unzipped and the opening unbuttoned and folded to the side to release excess heat. There are also long zippers in the sides of this anorak that can be opened for ventilation and make it easier to put on/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. Buttoned sleeve cuffs. The anorak is made from wind and water resistant G-1000 Eco in recycled polyester and organic cotton 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 - and to make it easy to replace exposed sections after years of use. Part of the Fjällräven Numbers Collection.

"This is an awesome jacket. Well made, versatile, hard wearing and adaptable. Only things I'd change, make the crotch strap slightly longer and an additional button on the wrist for tightness"Jim, 1/5/15
"Awesome jacket. Well made. Excellent features and looking forward to putting it through its paces. Highly recommended. Only thing is check the sizes as I found smaller than chart size"Jim, 12/31/14
Anorak No. 8
"A question occupied my mind: should I take a jacket G... -TEX type or in G-1000? My need for a jacket is versatility, that is to say, to cover 80% of use cases. The remaining 20% exceptional cases. And at exceptional condition corresponds to exceptional equipment. Wind, humidity, light rain fall within 80%, as the cold and snow for the Nordic countries. The heavy rain on significant against time in between by 20%.David, 11/9/14
I remember two things: 1-in heavy rain on long-term or sudden flood, it is wet anyway (feedback from the tropical climate), 2-wet not be a problem but it is cooling (by conduction, convection or diffusion eg.) that is the problem.
But the G-1000 is windproof, which reduces the risk of convection cooling. By conduction or diffusion, by cons, I consider three temperature ranges: hot, mixed, cold (ie around zero degrees). A fourth temperature range below zero, does not arise. In the first case, this is not a problem because the G-1000 fabric dries quickly. For cold, near zero by zero temperatures, I can consider the use of a mid-layer fleece or synthetic insulation (eg. Primaloft Microloft or G-Loft) that retain a high value of their thermal property if wet. Rather, the problem comes from the intermediate range where the use of an insulating mid-layer is not necessarily significant (in active practice) as it is within 20%, in extraordinary circumstances, then I take a special attitude : shelter, clothing default replacement (the classic poncho) for example. I will note a few important point about conduction, it is useful to have a air layer, even fine between the outer surface of the inner layer and the inner surface of the outer layer. Hence the preferred embodiment of a loose fit or comfort for the outer layer use, in contrast to a tight fit of the first layer or mid-layer (for adjustment allows the contact transfer of perspiration).
Other reasons lead me to choose this fabric: it is extremely resistant in time and abrasion, it is breathable, slightly more natural since it contains 35% cotton (even organic for some), it is more comfortable too, and finally it dries very quickly. Finally, it prevents mosquito bites, except for the G-1000 Lite.
In my case, a good garment is one that makes it indispensable, filling 80% of the use cases and over time. A garment that is part of my basic equipment. This jacket meets the condition.
The anorak no. 8 is simple and reliable. The hood although large, does not pose a concern to be bent and adapted this gene or the view or head movements. To don the anorak, more open closures on the side is because it reduces the distance to the access opening for the head and increases range of motion. To remove it, no problem. The anorak size wide and long. This allows a choice of two sizes: normal and just below that, knowing that even this allows quite harbor intermediate layers.
The only downside is the price, that's why I give 4 stars instead of 5."
