Long Lasting Wear Creates Long Lasting Memories

The Alpine Anorak was designed to last for years, in the hopes that the piece will begin to feel like an old friend. Waxed canvas ages beautifully, becoming patinaed, textured, and relaxed, holding onto memories of ski trips past long after the snow has melted.

THE STORY

The storied 10th Mountain Division of the United States Army was originally commissioned as the 10th Light Alpine in 1943. Initially conceived by Charles Minot Dole, President of the National Ski Patrol, and trained at Camp Hale, Colorado USA under the direction of mountaineer Jim Whitaker, the first American to summit Mount Everest. The 10th was the first elite skiing force of its kind, focused upon winter and mountain combat during WWII.

Contributing to the war effort through victories achieved in the Italian Alps and amidst harsh, snow-filled terrain, the 10th Mountain Division’s intense requirements for protection and performance lead to the War Department’s technical design and development of the Alpine Anorak as its standard issue jacket. Chosen for its pull-over characteristics reducing the windchill often felt through a front placket zipper, the full body coverage and hooded construction leveraged the centuries-old design knowledge of the native Inuits of Canada and Greenland who favored those same protective characteristics when crafting their garments from stretched animal skins and water repellent oils.

With reference and deference to the durable all-terrain winter performance garment of the 10th Mountain Division, Alps & Meters crafted the Alpine Anorak. A storied piece made famous by the best of men from the famed 10th, the Alpine Anorak delivers snow, wind, and water resistant protection through a combination of classic and contemporary technologies - waxed cotton and a 10k/10k waterproof membrane.

A timeless, tested, and authentic winter garment, the Alpine Anorak is designed to deliver exceptional quality and comfort while upholding the classic alpine traditions of the past.

Good quality garment

Feels really good quality, plenty of room for layers (6 foot 1, 185lbs, size L). My planned trip has disappeared with Coronavirus so yet to be tested properly, but optimistic it will perform well in time.

Well thought out design

I had been wanting this anorak for a couple of years and finally pulled the trigger a few weeks ago, amazing design. Vents are easy to access and everything is put together well. I wish I hadn't waited so long but look forward to many years exploring with it.

Best Mountain Anorak Ever!

I've worn this anorak to the top of the Rockies, the Selkirks and the Monashees, in the snow in sub-zero temperatures...an awesome piece of kit. Windproof, warm and durable...and looks like the day I purchased it. Kudos, Alps & Meters!
