Anorak vs. Cagoule

By Jaxson

  • Cagoule

    A cagoule (French: [kaɡul]), also spelled cagoul, kagoule or kagool, is the British English term for a lightweight (usually without lining), weatherproof raincoat or anorak with a hood, which often comes in knee-length form. The Canadian English equivalent is windbreaker or the French brand K-Way.

    In some versions, when rolled up, the hood or cross-chest front pocket doubles as a bag into which the shell can be packed.
