Further Information

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.

  I have been looking for an authentic Anorak for a long time, but wanted a new one without that army surplus smell! The Morgedal is great, looks the part, feels cool on muggy days and is incredibly breathable. The water rolls off the fabric like water off a ducks back! Really it does! and I fold the jacket up in a way that it goes it to its own hood. Great Jacket! As for the Raymears store, fantastic I ordered the Morgedal lunch time and to my surprise it turned up the next morning. There is nothing bad I can say; Thank You. Andy.

  I bought this jacket as I wanted a jacket that behaved like ventile, but without the price tag. The jacket is an over the head design with two large pockets on the front, large wired hood and easy to use volume adjusters. This item is a traditional scandinavian design, practical and easy to wear. The only criticism of this item are the patches that are stitched on it, but these are easily removed.

  Great piece of kit. Ventile in all but name, obviously due to the TM, but performs as well as any ventile garment I've had, obviously with the slight downside of the stiffness in severe rain. The sizing is very generous; I'm a big guy at 6'5 with a 48 inch chest, but only a 36 waist, so the draw cording system was a bonus as some garments look ridiculous. Very highly recommended, I did take the badges off though!

  Nice retro look, plenty of room for clothing underneath, well made, pity there are no pants to match for men, pull cords a bit awkward to slacken off when removing the anorak. Definitely recommend it. Fast delivery.
