‘Round here terms like ice chisel, winter camping, and sub zero make us feel all warm and giggly. Yeah, cold weather adds some extra prep work to your day, but there’s no grass to mow, the bears aren’t rousting the dumpsters, and there isn’t much riff-raff on the sidewalks above 45°N- just ice. Some unique types relish a good cold snap, and I offer my finest work for them. The tight weave of the pre-shrunk 6 ounce organic Cotton Canvas completely defeats the wind that robs warm air from your insulation layers. But more importantly, it allows your body’s own perspiration to escape so you stay dry and comfortable.
I’m proud to offer this ages-old idea with a contemporary fit and finish. The modified Raglan sleeves encourage plenty of movement. The generous cut lets you reach just about anything. The long skirt protects the muscle mass in your seat and thighs. My zippered and bellowed chest pocket is stitched high enough that you may use an external sash around your waist. It has a reach through port for accessing gear or water bottles from your inner layers. The cuffs seal with hook and loop tabs, and slide inside the gauntlets of my True North Mitts.
The generous hood adjusts for depth and circumference, so you’ll find the perfect fit, whether you’re wearing a helmet or a just a toque. When the wind howls you can cinch the visor cord with a single hand. I’ve stitched a separating zipper along the rim to add a fur ruff for those brisk afternoons when you’re locked in a battle of wills with a torpid lunker. Ruffs are interchangeable between Parkas and Anoraks. The interior of the visor has a light layer of poly fleece so your breath won’t form an ice cave around your face. The stovepipe neck closes with a slightly offset zipper for great access. I take care to color coordinate all the hardware and cordage with the fabric to reduce your silhouette in the wintry world.
Fabric: 6 ounce organic Cotton Canvas Color: Natural. Hood inner facing, 100% recycled Polyester. Sizes: SM, MD, LG, XL. There will be variations in textile, zipper, and thread coloring based on availability. The natural colored canvas will accept dye to suit your need for color. The hardware, nylon trim, and thread will not take dye. I recommend a fairly aggressive commercial colorant over those available in craft stores.
