Most traditional anoraks here in Scandinavia have two pockets. The dividing line is the pull cord channel in the waist; above it is a more or less rectangular pocket with a zipper, below it is two slash pockets that are actually one big pocket with two openings (several manufacurers put the
pull cord for the waist inside this pocket).

I don't like pit zips since I have a fear of zippers failing; you can sew them shut, but preferably not in the middle of blizzard.

I need to get hold of some ventile cotton and make a new anorak, I curently only have two, and neither is just right.

Re: "Hoop's" comment about a voyageur sash, the small store at the French River Visitors' Centre on Hwy 11, just south of Sudbury carry a small selection of voyageur sashes, as does the store @ Champlain Provincial Park in Mattawa (not too far from you in Sudbury). Perhaps these are also carried at other Parks Ontario locations. If memory serves me right, I think French River has both traditional red sashes, and also a blue "Metis" sash. Champlain Park also had smaller headband sashes, as well as leg sashes the last time I was in there this past summer.

Hoop is right, a sash would set off the anorak quite nicely!

Happy snowshoeing!
