The Bergans Morgedal Backcountry Anorak is a classically shaped, over-the-head smock designed primarily for winter wear, and is ideal for use when cross-country skiing. Made from 100% EPIC® Cotton, the tightly woven fabric offers protection from wind, rain and snow, yet is light enough for use in warm weather as well. The Norwegian village of Morgedal, from which the jacket takes its name, is known as the 'cradle of skiing'. As such, the Morgedal Anorak is the perfect garment for cross-country skiing, and comes highly recommended for students of our Telemark Skiing Expeditions.
Benefits of EPIC® Cotton:
The Morgedal Backcountry Anorak is a premium cotton smock, made with durable, top-quality materials and plenty of attention to detail. 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 draughts out, while the elbows are articulated to allow improved freedom of movement when skiing and trekking. 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.

How does the Morgedal Backcountry differ from the standard Morgedal Anorak?
While the standard Morgedal Anorak is adorned with a number of bright patches and logos across the chest and sleeve, here at Woodlore we felt that a more subtle, understated look would better suit the wilderness' that this garment is designed for. As such, Woodlore have worked together with Bergans to create the Morgedal 'Backcountry' Anorak. Free of the standard colourful badges, the Backcountry model comes in Dark Khaki and features only two small logos in complimenting colours - the Bergans script logo on the chest and the classic Birkebeiner logo on the right sleeve. The Morgedal Backcountry Anorak is exclusive to Woodlore.
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.
