    Very impressive. I thought my Anorak was big, but that is one of the biggest I've ever seen.

    Should serve you well.
    If your lucky enough to be outdoors, your lucky enough!

    It's just a lot less expensive. I get it at thrift stores.

    Yes, it is actually 2 Anoraks joined together at the side seams, and the shoulder seam, and neck

    Here is a question for all of the Anorak, vetrans

    Have you ever wax treated it to slow the snow melt, sticking?
    If you did what did you use?

    That is the only drawback I have with these, being cotton and in temps about 20 degrees, they will get wet, unless you use minimal insulation and drive them dry with body heat.

    I would think treating with wax would end up reducing the ability
    of the garment to breath and cancel out the benefits. I don't think I would do this, but I sweat heavily and need clothing that is very breathable. Frost River packs sell a wax to help recoat their packs, but this may seal up the pores too well. http://www.frostriver.com/bike_bags/waxwear.html

    I know nix wax also sells a product called cotton proof. I would guess it would be a lighter coating and may be a better choice. Maybe above 20F a lightweight breathable nylon shell with a good DWR coating would be better.

    Currently above 20 F if it is snowing, I use a very breathable nylon wind coat, and it works well but if I could cut out one piece of gear I would.
    I will carry both until I come upon the answer
