Well-ventilated anorak in G-1000 with double layers of fabric over the shoulders. Zippers at the sides, spacious pockets and storm hood with detachable synthetic fur edging.
Classic anorak in wind and water resistant G-1000 with double layers of fabric over the shoulders for extra protection against water and wear. The hardwearing fabric ventilates out a lot of moisture, which reduces the risk of you getting cold due to damp base-layer garments. An excellent choice for snowshoeing, ski touring, long-distance skating and other active winter outdoor pursuits. Side zippers release further excess heat and simplify taking off and putting on.
Robust, tried-and-tested features make this a practical, reliable garment that protects against hard winter weather. The storm hood can be adjusted for a perfect fit and the brim can be folded to either give maximum protection against the wind or more peripheral vision. Detachable synthetic fur edging gives extra protection against swirling snow. The half-length front opening has a zipper and an inside protective flap. Items you want to keep close at hand such as a compass, extra gloves and so on can be kept in the large kangaroo pocket or hand pockets – all of which have zippers. Elastic drawcords can be used to adjust the hem. Velcro adjustments at the sleeve cuffs.
G-1000 fabric can be impregnated with Greenland Wax for extra protection against the elements.
Fjällräven's Singi Anorak is an excellent pullover shell suitable for everything from autumn squalls to snowy blizzards. Original G-1000 used throughout ensures that this will be a durable, hard-wearing jacket, and double layers on the shoulders protect from precipitation and guarantee waterproofing. The removable synthetic fur trim keeps the warm air in, and a wide range of adjustments such as a drawstring hem and Velcro cuffs keep the cold out.
The Singi Anorak provides storage above and beyond that of a standard coat, with a huge kangaroo pocket perfect for any equipment you need warm, dry and close to hand. The side-entry hand pockets have small elasticated pouches inside, and zip closures across the board ensure weatherproofing. Two-way side zips not only aid in throwing the jacket on over whatever layers are required, but also provide fantastic ventilation should you get too toasty.
