Roamers stays true to its roots with a stylish, functional take on the anorak. We tried this pullover and found the cotton herringbone extremely soft and comfortable. It will break in like a favorite pair of boots and quickly become a staple of your wardrobe.

The Cloudcover Overhead is packed with features to keep you comfortable on the go. The jackets proprietary 2.5-layer Barricade technology with fully taped seams and DWR coating provide uncompromising protection.

It’s the perfect balance of style and practicality and can be used in a variety of environments. Wear it to work in the morning and on the light hike afterward. It even packs into its own pocket for easy storage.

The 2.5L Flat Pullover by Snow Peak is a lightweight shell made with flame-retardant and water-resistant fabric. Pair this jacket with a warmer layer underneath to keep warm around the campfire as temps begin to drop. And if you spend the majority of your time in a concrete jungle, this jacket is as much urban fashion as cabin chic.

This anorak comes from a collaboration between Jungmaven and Manastash. The Tieton is a heavyweight, durable pullover with a simple zipperless kangaroo pocket. It’s built from a hemp and organic cotton twill, and its unisex sizing makes it comfortable for all to wear (though women should size down).

This plush anorak from The North Face will have you feeling good during your morning workout and comfortable for coffee afterward. Its side zippers make it easy to throw on, and its water-resistant coating will get you through light precipitation.
