Synch Anorak - Pufferfish Gold
Also Available In:
This warm, comfortable fleece anorak from Patagonia is ingeniously made with scraps of their ultra-comfortable, lightweight and 100% recycled polyester Synchilla fleece - saving even more material from waste. With a heritage-inspired design that offers a roomier cut than their other fleece styles, choose one size smaller than usual if you prefer a trimmer fit.
The boxy, roomy design of the Synch Anorak allows for generous range of motion in the shoulders and arms, with an ample collar providing space around the neck. A deep half-zip front makes for easy venting and quickly putting on and taking off and goes up to the collar to hoard warmth and protects your neck from wind and cold. Stash small items in the marsupial-style zippered front pocket, which are then covered with a snapped flap. Side-entry zippered pockets also have a snapped flap and are mesh lined. Elasticised binding on the neck, cuffs and hem reinforce them for all-day comfort.
