Very pleased with the service from Woodlore, prompt delivery and efficient service returning the larger size that had been previously ordered. Excellent anorak, I cannot fault it. Be very wary of the sizing though, I have a Keb jacket that is a large and is a great fit with room for a fleece underneath. I had read some reviews that suggested the Anorak No 8 is very generous in its sizing so I initially ordered a medium and a large. They were huge; so I ordered a small and it is perfect for wearing on its own or with a couple (even three) layers underneath. Out of interest, the across chest measurement at the armpits on the Keb is 58cm (it has a bit of stretch out to 60cm); the same measurement on the Anorak No 8 is 62cm.

I'm 6 foot 5 inches with a 44 inch chest and 35 inch waist. I'm normally an X-Large but ordered a large and found it to be a perfect fit. Plenty of room inside it for 2 or 3 thick layers. I was worried about the size Large as I have long arms but all good. Watching this item for months so this is great price and fast delivery. Now the tricky part, getting out for a good hike in the woods with all these covid restrictions!! Stay safe everyone.

What a garment this is and what a price at Ray Mears Bushcraft. This Anorak is not waterproof, but it is weather proof, by this I mean, if you get stuck out in the elements and things get tasty, being inside this dulls the weather beating by 75%. My suggestion is to stuff a poncho (Snugpak Enhanced Patrol Poncho) in the kangaroo pouch and you are fully protected to what ever the weather throws at you. If you run hot, you will only need a base layer under this, as it keeps you very warm. This is a lifetime bit of kit and a joy to walk in or for just around camp activities. Leave your puffas and fleeces at home, not needed, unless you are in to the minus figures. As far as sizing is concerned, stick with your size, it comes up at least one or two sizes bigger. The sizes they give are rubbish, this anorak in Large is at least 42-44, unless you want a very loose fit and if you are 44 plus, the xl might be a better option. I am 5 ft 10 inches 190lbs and 44 chest and bought a large, I like a bit of space and it's perfect. The staff at the store are very helpful and know what they are talking about, so you can trust what they say. Very very happy, worth every penny.

Great bit of kit. Sizes are ample so don’t think you have to go big. I’ve added the Greenland wax so it’s now complete in the wind and water, fantastic technical jacket and great service from Woodlore.

This is a top quality jacket, very well made although the sizing is a bit off, ordered a medium as I'm normally a large, this was way too big, sent back for a small, still huge, sent back again for XS, this time jacket fits well, feel great, been a while since I fitted into an XS...can't fault the Ray Mears site, exchanged every time with no hassle, would highly recommend!! will use again for sure.

Fjallraven Anorak No.8 I have just finished somewhat begrudgingly waxing and hair drying this anorak for the umpteenth time. This was time consuming and done without the joys of ironing boards or Woman’s Hour as on previous occasions. The anorak was veritably stiff with wax. It could nearly stand up on its own. Indeed, it appeared something other than G-1000. It started raining - a light shower. Anorak on, I put my arm out the door. Rain drops beaded. Thank God for that. I walked across the yard to my workshop - 30 seconds - in a LIGHT shower. The anorak was wet on the inside. The fancy leather labelling on the inside was darkened and damp. I do not write reviews. This is my first. It is also hopefully my last. I bought this anorak some four years ago. I bought it for working in my woodland. It appeared to be robust enough and designed for that purpose. (I also thought it would be eminently suitable for coastal/estuary bass and sewin fishing.) It certainly was not cheap. It was to replace a very old ripped Barbour and a 20 year old, yet superb Paramo smock which was worn with great care not compromise its performance in the mountains in winter. First outing for the Fjallraven Anorak No.8 was to sort out a load of wind throw. It was snowing lightly. Underneath were tried and tested wicking layers and Stihl/Schoeller chainsaw trousers. My top half got soaked and pausing for tea I also got cold. Ah The Wax. Need to wax it. Next outing waxed and confident - the anorak had the feel of armour - in a light shower I got wet and cold. Repeat. Repeat ad nauseum. My partner tells me to complain. It’s not in nature, so the anorak gets hung up and only worn when there is NO risk of rain. There’s the rub - NO RISK OF RAIN. In Wales, Scotland and Ireland there are few days in the year when this is the case. Indeed, four seasons in one day is more likely. So it’s to be worn in dry conditions. It is not, as claimed, water resistant. Even heavily waxed it is not water resistant. Despite intentions it has never been exposed to sea spray or salt air. All care instructions have been followed as prescribed. It has never been tumble dried. Suitable wicking layers have been worn underneath. And an awful lot of time has been wasted waxing, ironing and hair drying. I am no stranger to Fjallraven - I have two pairs of Vidda Pros which I practically live in. I am aware of G-1000. I am no fool. I had great expectations of this anorak. Sadly, however, I am bitterly disappointed. This is by far the most expensive piece of clothing I have ever bought. Should it have been water resistant as claimed I would be delighted and the anorak would have seen an awful lot of use. It will now probably end up on EBay. Service from this company has been as good as one could possibly expect. Other items bought have thus far proved durable and well worth the expense.

This is a great coat the sizing is very large but ideal to layer up under, shipped and arrived perfectly well packed and next day. Would definitely recommend this

Bought this and it is fantastic quality BUT read the reviews. This garment is way bigger than the sizing guide suggests. I am a 42 inch chest 6’1” and 14 stone. Sizing guide suggests I am on the border between large and extra-large. I read the reviews and sized down to the large. Put simply even sizing down to the large - this coat still drowns me - even with bulky layers underneath. A medium will be a much better fit for me and still leave room for other layers. Apart from sizing issue - this is a quality coat and I recommend.
