Eighties retro is cool. Even fanny packs are in. So it’s no surprise the funky anorak is making a comeback. If you have neglected your stretching, the pullover jacket may not be your thing, but otherwise eliminating half a zip cuts bulk and weight, and the cleaner look is also more thermally efficient. And you can forget wrestling the two halves of a YKK together.

Anorak

Dakine Clark Anorak

A stylish shell jacket with side zip access and kangaroo pouch-style pocket. ($230; dakine.com)
