The Sasta Peski is a very well designed and constructed anorak, with excellent seam stitching. The hood articulates perfectly with your head once the draw cords are tightened, it does not obscure your vision when looking to the sides, up or down. As mentioned in a previous review, the drawcords, I feel, should be made of a slightly heavier cord as I think those fitted may stretch out over time and loose their elasticity, as has occurred with a previous goretex jacket's waist drawcords of a similar thickness. only time will tell. In a light rain shower, the water droplets beaded up immediately on the surface of the ventile cloth, which bodes for well for use in heavier rain. The fit of the XL size, allows for layering a thin fleece underneath. I am 6' 6' with a 42' chest and have long arms, even so, the sleeve ends reach to cover the back of my hands, so bear this in mind if your arms are fairly short. Overall sizing is very similar to the Fjallraven No. 8 anorak but due to the slightly thinner and softer drape of the, ventile fabric, the Peski anorak gives a more fitted look and feel. For many years I have worn Goretex jackets in many guises but none have given the same level of comfort as the Peski . So my conclusions so far, are that the Peski anorak is an excellent piece of clothing with a lot of thought having gone into its design and it is very well made.
