Provenance

Our good friends, Paul and Meg Rosher, up on the Isle of Skye are very skilled craftsfolk and for some reason or other decided to make an anorak based on early versions of a Black's Anorak and an old military version they found in the loft. The idea was to make a climbing anorak where you could still get in the pockets whilst wearing a harness.
They made a very good job, but unfortunately didn't use it very much, so it sat in the loft for many years before they decided to hand it on to us - thanks folks.
