5.11 Warner Anorak Jacket

The Warner Anorak Jacket from 5.11 Tactical is an Anorak-style half-zip pullover jacket that protects against the elements due to its water-resistant, windbreaker-like, full-dull polyester exterior, elastic sleeve cuffs and drawcord-adjustable hood, while offering surprising warmth thanks to a fleece-lined interior.

The jacket weighs only 19 ozs. and folds down to a 9"x7"x3" parcel, making it eminently packable, while two large kangaroo pockets (one is a zippered top-entry pocket concealed in front of and above the other) provide storage options.

A zippered and snapped opening on each side of the waist provides venting, if needed, and also allows better access to a concealed firearm. The Warner Anorak Jacket is available in two colors: Black and Grenade (shown).

MSRP is $160. For more information, visit
