Anorak for Rowing



The Rowing Anorak is a unisex garment made for rough weather and the colder rowing seasons. It is wind-proof and waterproof yet highly breathable and can be packed down to a minimum volume into its own chest-pocket storage bag.

The fabric construction is a light top-layer allowing a little space underneath for you to wear a slim mid-layer shirt underneath like a long sleeve, a sweatshirt or a vest (not supplied). For heavy rain, a hood stored in the collar can be quickly unpacked.

A silicone strip at the inside of the bottom seam keeps the anorak in place around your waist and prevents it riding up while rowing.

For extra cooling ventilation, the anorak can be opened up with a double-zipper down the side.

Only one colour is available – a dark petrol (blue) colour with red/green design elements on the seams of the cuffs and a reflective ROWTEX logo on the shoulder.

    On first impressions, I absolutely loved the colour of this jacket – including the red and green details on the sleeves to match the colours of the blades!

    When I tested it out, I could really tell that it has been designed specifically with rowing in mind, like the elastic cuffs which stop water dripping down your arms when you carry the boat. Also I had no problem at all with the blades getting caught around the finish as the design is well fitting.

    The jacket is warm and will be really useful for autumn / winter sessions when the weather gets cold in the mornings, but it also has a side zip for ventilation so can be used in warmer weather too. The pocket which the whole jacket packs into also has a waterproof zip and is quite deep so could easily store a phone / rigger jigger etc.

    One thing to remember is that the sizes are unisex so double check the dimensions before you order. I am 164cm and wearing size XS – I have longer arms than my height and I found the sleeves were easily long enough which is great.

    Overall I think this jacket is really well designed to be comfortable and useful and I will definitely wear it a lot!
