Waterproof and windproof breathable anorak.
The On Men's Waterproof Anorak in Black packs in practical features to keep the weather out. Like the elasticated tie to pull the hood tight or keep it out of the way. Then there are the hidden vents for increased airflow. And when the rain stops, the anorak packs into its own inner pocket for easy portability.
The Waterproof Anorak is made with a premium three-layer membrane for complete water- and windproofing with dynamic breathability. Hydrophilic elements in the lining transport moisture from the body and expand as they work. This means the more you sweat, the more breathable the anorak becomes.
The materials responsible for the performance of the Waterproof Anorak were carefully selected to perform responsibly. The advanced waterproof membrane is not only breathable, stretchable and durable, it’s also entirely PTFE-free. What’s more, it's 20,000 mm water column is backed up by a PFC-free durable water-repellent coating.

The On Men's Waterproof Anorak - Black has the following sustainability attributes...
Fluorinated DWR finishes make clothing waterproof by repelling water droplets. ‘PFCs’ is the broad term for all fluorocarbon chemicals, of which PFOS and PFOA are sub-groups. Different chemicals in this family have a varying number of carbon atoms, so C6 has six carbon atoms and C8 has eight. While the outdoor industry has moved away from C8 (or 'long chain') PFCs, C6 (short chain) PFCs are currently unbeatable in their waterproofing performance. They're considered less harmful to the environment than C8, but they have not been proven to be safe. PFCs are known as forever chemicals; once created they will never break down and are harmful to people and the planet. To read more about the chemistry related to PFCs, head here.
PFC-Free DWR uses alternative, biodegradable technologies that repels water from the surface of a fabric - such as Fjallraven's Greenland Wax. PFC-Free DWR coatings are water resistant enough for most daily activities, so if you don’t need a highly technical waterproof, consider a PFC-Free garment instead.
