    Here we go again another anorak... I hadnt heard of this company until last year when I bought purchased it. The site was a little rough to deal with it being all in GERMAN but I called them and they speak American. Or in my case Brooklynese. (how Yu doin...)
    Anyhow I love this anorak. SO lets talk about it. The weave is more of a felt variety.

    Pros.
    -THe sizing XL was great not as big as my Lester BS but still generous and comfy. I feel it serves well by itself, as an outer layer and layers over it.
    - Out of the box softer and then with wear even softer.
    - Blocks alot of wind! and repels water snow , sleet etc very well.
    - Side vents perfectly placed so you can unzip and hand a blade or whatever
    -Buttons are big and east to use on cuffs.
    - Has a cool loop system on front so you can attach biners or mittens etc.
    - Good adjustable hood and neck gaiter
    - Pockets has smaller pockets inside that also zip close. I do like Lesters pockets better however.
    - Very comfy in either active or lazy mode.
    - This thing is like wearing light armour in the bush!
    Cons:
    - I would like a bigger hood
    - the vets arent up to pits which would be even better I like to be able to vent.
    - The are draw strings at the bottom, but I find them splitting the vent zips open all the time if im working and have them drawn tight.
    - The little string things on the cords are plastic and make noise but you can just get rid of them.

    I really love that this ANORAK can be used in active situations and still can sleep in it. For some reason in wicks moisture away alot more efficient.

    No, I think ventile is densely woven cotton. Loden is a premium fabric (e.g. ventile, etc.)

    Thanks for the review! I really like the looks of their loden jackets, was shipping to the U.S. reasonable?

    AMERICAN!!!

    That's a new dialect of English... is it? ( only joking ) ;-)
    Can you imagine how scary it is for people here to have to deal with my Cockney accent and fluent German ... hahaha ..

    Cool looking anorak though ..
    If any one else has need of German translations let me know ..

    I got one last year, expensive but no worse than all the other expensive wool stuff. I love mine, I prefer it to a heavier wool layer, if I'm going to wear wool at all. I agree, the side zips would be even better if they went up to the armpits and were 2-way; I am planning to switch mine out. Also, I wish the neck would open up all the way, with a zipper as well as the gusset. They also make a very nice wool jacket, made of a lighter grade of Loden. It's styled like a regular modern soft shell jacket, but made of Loden instead of plastic. Pretty cool stuff!

    They did send their jackets to some German youtubers. This is a vid from an Englishspeaking, living in Germany. Of course you have to have in mind that they probably got these jackets for free.

    $420.00 - Is that correct? Wow that would be one of those "bite the bullet" purchases. Looks like a great product.

    I was looking at this after seeing Ms. Williams YouTube video singing its praises. Revisited again as Tarromovies started rocking one too. The raffstaff site loses a bit in google translate. That price tag is mainly due to the VAT (value added tax) tax. Not looking to start a political argument but when ever you hear anyone say we need that here; punch them in the face. ;-)

    I personally would live to see a side by side of the HAUDEGAN, LESTER RIVER and the SWAZZI.
    Wear it in good health.

    RaffStuff is a brand that's quite hip for bushcrafters atm. You get similar stuff for less money...

    This is what hunters wear round here: http://shop.hubertus-gmbh.de/kat/Jagd_Lodenpullover

    All hand made, individual changes can be made, 60 bucks cheaper...
