 What do the British mean when they call somebody an "anorak"? | Notes and Queries | Guardian Unlimited

 The Dispatch - Serving the Lexington, NC - News
An anorak or parka is a type of heavy jacket with a hood, often lined with fur or fun fur, so as to protect the face from a combination of freezing temperatures and wind.
Strictly speaking, an anorak is a waterproof jacket with a hood and drawstrings at the waist and cuffs; while a parka is a knee-length cold-weather jacket or coat, typically stuffed with down or very warm synthetic fibre, and having a fur-lined hood.
Originally an anorak specifically implied a pull-over jacket without a zipper, button or frogged opening, but this distinction is now largely lost, and many garments with a full-length front opening are now described as anoraks.

It was reportedly derived from the weatherproof upper clothing worn by enthusiasts of offshore radio who would, despite their lack of familiarity with maritime life, sometimes travel from British ports in small boats to visit the ships from which their outcast heroes broadcast during the 1967-76 period.
In rough weather the anoraks were far more visible than their distressed wearers hence they were identified by the style of their outer garments.
