One of the many ‘dope’ definitions doing the rounds on Urban Dictionary is “A word used to describe just about anything good in life.” As Urban Dictionary definitions for words go, this is one that definitely leads us rather neatly on to a discussion of the Dope Annok Jacket and Con Pants.
If getting up in the mountains during the months of winter, and rocking a look while you’re at it, is your idea of a nice time then you might just want to consider this combo for your kitbag. It’s a mashing together of functionality and vibes.
Dope Women’s Annok Jacket Material
The Annok is one of Dope’s most popular items, a waterproof and insulated anorak that looks fly and does the job. Made from Dope’s DryTech Shell Fabric, this product has a 15k / 15k rating on the waterproofing and breathability front. Yes, this might not be the highest levels of protection, but when you consider the very reasonable price, it’s an affordable option for everywhere else in resort – park, piste, the more casual end of the off-piste spectrum and, of course, the Après bar.
“A waterproof and insulated anorak that looks fly and does the job”
While we’re on the subject of waterproofing, the jacket has been given an ECO DWR coating so that water beads right off rather than soaking in.
People who care about the future of the planet will like that the eco-insulation here is derived from 60% plant-based processing. There’s a little less of it in the arms than the torso, meaning you get optimum performance for mountain activities without the bulk.
