This is a fantastic anorak! I researched and deliberated a lot before buying this due to the high cost and the fact I hadn’t seen one in person. Having received it yesterday, I took it out today where it met my every expectation and more. Firstly the fit and length is fantastic, not ridiculously over sized so that it snags on vegetation but instead just right with some room for extra layers when needed. The hood is big and gives good coverage. Totally windproof and breathable which is a bit of a revelation coming from gore tex. Its also refreshing to have hand warmer pockets in the correct place (for me at least, I prefer them higher up) also the zipped pocket is the ideal size (not too deep that things get lost at the bottom) and has a loop to attach a compass or knife. I used it by the fire today where it coped admirably and has now been christened with the smell of woodsmoke. Some of the other reviews highlighted the draw cords, mine came with more than heavy enough black elastic and solid zips. I’m guessing they have updated them. Well done Sasta for producing a fantastic anorak! I should also note having contacted Sasta before purchasing with questions, they were very helpful. It’s nice to come across an outdoors brand that isn’t just a huge corporation but instead independent and still family owned. Also thanks Woodlore for your quick processing! Be aware that it is Ventile and be sure that it suits your needs before ordering. Look forward to using this both in the UK and abroad.
