Ah, Spring - you fickle creature. A season that can't decide if it want's to be cold, gorgeous, raining or some combination of all of the above. It is for spring that the anorak was conceived. The ultimate layering piece - it provides wind/water protection with the option to layer on warmth for whatever the temperature range might be.

The one shown here is from American Apparel circa 2007. It never goes out of style. It matches nothing and everything, and it folds up nicely so there's a 97% chance it's in my suitcase when I'm traveling.
