On the topic of anaroks, I (In the Chicago corner of the world, WI) first
ran across an anorak in a Wrinkle in Time.  I believe Charles Wallace has a
blue (Torn?) one.  He doesn't seem to fit the categories henceforth
described, but...

"If you have some liniment* I'll put it on my dignity...I think it's sprained."
-Mrs. Whatsit, Wrinkle in Time
*(Also a first time word for me...but then again I first read the book when
I was in 2nd or 3rd grade.)
