The Bergans Morgedal Anorak is a fantastic, versatile and lightweight smock that is ideal for year-round use in a variety of weather conditions. Primarily designed as a cross-country skiing jacket, this anorak is perfect for winter use over the top of insulating mid-layers, yet equally suitable for summer walks when a little warmth and protection from the wind and rain is needed.
The Morgedal Anorak is made from 100% EPIC® Cotton, a superb outdoor material which offers a more natural alternative to GORE-TEX garments. In a characteristic similar to that of Ventile, this tightly woven fabric 'swells' strand-by-strand when wet, providing a windproof and highly water-repellent barrier. As many reviewers will attest, the Morgedal Anorak can more than hold its own in adverse weather conditions.
The attached hood features a wire-rimmed peak for excellent visibility in snow or rain, as well as a Velcro attachment point for the Bergans Fake Fur Trim, for use in extreme cold. The jacket is shaped to include an extra-long back panel to keep out draughts, while the elbows are articulated to allow for improved freedom of movement when trekking and skiing. The high front zip is covered with a soft chin protector for added comfort, and roomy hand-warmer pockets are included to finish it all off. The Morgedal Anorak features a particularly spacious fit, so please bear this in mind when ordering.
The Bergans company has now been in existence for over a century, beginning in 1908. Among the scores of new inventions devised by founder Ole F. Bergan, one in particular made the Bergans name famous worldwide - the rucksack with a frame. Since then, the Bergans brand has maintained its reputation as one of the frontrunners in the outdoor clothing and equipment industry. The Norwegian village of Morgedal, from which this jacket takes its name, is known as the 'cradle of skiing'. As such, the Morgedal Anorak is a perfect garment for cross-country skiing, and comes highly recommended for students of our Winter Expeditions.
