The Filson Shelter Cloth Waxed Anorak is a modern take on a historic classic that combines style with practicality. This water-resistant pullover is designed for those who appreciate craftsmanship and functionality in their outdoor gear.
The roots of the anorak trace back to the ancient Arctic, where hooded pullovers were made from animal skins and coated with oils for water resistance. Filson has taken this concept and updated it for the modern adventurer. Crafted from their signature oil finish Shelter Cloth, sourced from England’s historic British Millerain, this anorak offers both tradition and innovation.
The 11-oz. midweight fabric is saturated with heated wax under high pressure, ensuring that the water-resistant treatment is deeply ingrained in the fabric itself. Say goodbye to superficial water repellency – this anorak is built to withstand the elements.
Featuring a quarter-length front zipper with a zipper garage to prevent pinching, snap-adjustable cuffs, and a drawcord-adjustable hood and hem, this anorak provides versatility and protection. The large center kangaroo pocket hides an internal zippered security pocket, and the forearms are reinforced for added durability.
Whether you’re exploring the great outdoors or simply navigating your urban jungle, the Filson Shelter Cloth Waxed Anorak is a versatile companion. Priced at $425, it’s an investment in quality and style that will serve you well for years to come.
