The original innovative and award winning SKOOKUMbrand® Yukon Anorak, the “Skookum Classic” has been tested in some of the world’s most challenging cold weather environments, like the Iditarod, the Yukon Quest, the Yukon Arctic Ultra, as well as the British Antarctic Survey.
Ideal for those that require versatility, the lightweight anorak is constructed with an adjustable fleece-lined hood and a functional fur ruff that is removable for laundering, fleece-lined hand warming pockets with iPod holster and through-pocket grommet for internal wiring, a zippered front-loading cargo pocket, reinforced elbows, shoulders and stitching, an inner wind flap and adjustable drawstring waist to trap or vent heat & moisture, Powerstretch® wrist gaiters and adjustable cuffs, high visibility 3M reflective tape and piping, Polartec® WindPro® fleece lining with 4X the wind-resistance of regular fleece, and, full two-way underarm zips to regulate heat/moisture during the heaviest activity.
Named after the first national park in Canada that was created as a result of a First Nation’s land claim agreement and an area that protects a portion of the porcupine caribou herd’s calving grounds. In the language of the Inuvialuit, “Ivvavik” means a place for giving birth, or a nursery.
Every northerner knows that the secret to staying warm is staying dry, and the secret behind the SKOOKUMbrand® Yukon Anorak is its ability to actively vent moisture which keeps its wearers dry. The SKOOKUMbrand® Yukon Anorak is a Registered Industrial Design.
