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.

Quality garment

Great jacket in retro Norwegian cagoule style.

Will see how stiff it gets in Appalachian winters. Pretty sure waxed fabric will get hard and require a beating in said winters.

Otherwise very simple style with good tech features.

Would have liked to see a removable snow skirt for the price.

As advertised

Great purchase though not inexpensive! I am approx 5’10” and 158#. I bought a size large and wish it just a tad larger in case I wanted to layer underneath. All in all it’s a great, well made product and am very happy about my purchase!

Perfect

It's waterproof, windproof and it has a little weight to it. I love the fact that it doesn't have a front zipper. I hate to say it but I can't wait for winter.

My anorak

Fit and finish is superb yet to field test it here on a hot New England August day. The customer service flawless. The only concern complaint is how do I rewax and how often?

40 + years working/playing in the outdoors above the 45th parallel

the quality appears to be exceptional. It is cut slimmer than I thought it would be, however I believe it will be warmer than I thought. I'm thinking I'll only need a T-shirt under it while snow shoeing. 4 stars instead of 5 because it's not made in the USA. The price would be easier to swallow if it were home made.
