5oz vs 10oz comparison:

Anorak size and weight comparison.

Anorak size and weight comparison.

Our same proven anorak design, now in a lighter, tighter package!  These light-weight anoraks are half the size and weight of our original 10 oz canvas.  The lighter canvas is easier wearing and dries faster after a wet snowfall.  After 2 seasons of personal use, we’ve been very happy with their durability (no rips, tears or signs of failure), but a light-weight anorak like this is really best suited for use out in the open, where the wind is howling.  If you want the lightest, smallest option available and will use it primarily for wind protection on the open lakes, or on cleared trails then you should look at our light-weight 5 oz DIY anorak kit.

Why Cotton?
Modern waterproof/ breathable fabrics wick moisture through small pores between the material fibres.  Cotton wicks moisture right through the fibres themselves, making for a much more breathable fabric.  We use a naturally windproof tight-weave canvas, which we pre-shrink to tighten the weave further.   Our anoraks are sized large to protect the large muscles of your thighs, and accommodate lots of layers underneath – even a down jacket for those frigidly cold lunch stops!

Why Fur?
We think a coyote fur ruff is essential for a good anorak hood, so these come standard on all our anoraks.  Fur ruffs are not just for looking good, the fur actually traps warm air inside the hood, creating a comfortable micro climate in front of you face.  Say good bye to your icy balaclava!

Sizing Information
This is a general guideline for the sizing of our anorak. Remember, these are designed to fit loose to accommodate for bulky wool layers underneath.

Height (ft)       Weight (lbs)       Anorak Size
5                        100-130                   Small
5’4 – 5’8            130-165                 Medium
5’9 – 6′              165-200                  Large
6′ – 6’4              200-235                X-Large
6’2 +                   235+                   XX-Large

2016 Fur Update:
After years of using recycled fur from old jackets, we’ve decided to make the switch to purchasing new Eastern Coyote pelts.  These are trapped in Canada and from a Canadian source.  Getting consistent, reliable quality jackets was just too difficult with increased demand, and we must say the new furs we are getting are really exceptional quality.

The fur industry in Canada is a highly regulated business and designed to be a sustainable practice. Traps and trapping rules are regulated to be as humane as possible that are used are humane with many older traps banned from use.

For more information about the fur industry please visit the Fur Council of Canada’s website here.

    My wife got me the anorak kit for Christmas 2016. The kit was pretty easy to put together and the instructions were really easy to follow. This was my first big sewing project and it turned out great! The Anorak is a piece of winter gear that I will never leave behind!

    I have completed this kit and from and over-all assessment I gladly give 5 stars. I am 6 feet 4 inches and. My normal coat/jacket size is 3 XL. I never tried this on for size till I was done. It fit perfectly. With a winter jacket underneath and thermal layers I have absolutely no restricted movement. Now, this anorak has been out in the bush twice so far. Once at -35 C in which it kept me free from wind and moisture. The breath ability of the fabric is a definite asset. The other outing was at -3 C. I wore a light fleece jacket underneath and was warm and dry once again.

    I would definitely say that some experience with a sewing machine is an asset and for my own ease of interpretation, I went onto the website and re-printed the instruction in colour because I found the black and white tough to see differences in the materials.
