Absolutely Top Notch.

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is my first piece of outerwear I've bought from Norrona and I assure you it will not be my last!
This coat is perfect. They sat down and said what are the features that make a ski coat great and put every single thing in it. But nothing unnecessary or superfluous. I love ski coats and own way too many of them; of all the coats I've owned and seen this is really the cream of the crop.
From the handy goggle wipe attached in the upper chest pocket to the pass slot within the left arm pocket. Certainly keeping with the times now with the abundant use of RFID scanners at resorts. Wrist gaiters and the best storm hood. Absolutely bomber coat. I have 1 and only 1 gripe. There is not mesh over the pit zips... A debated topic, Im sure, but in my opinion it should be there. Awesome powder skirt with a great rubber lining that keeps the skirt in place. It is a removable skirt, i dont care about that but just FYI.
Its a storm day coat. The built in insulation is warm but not bulky by any means. I was impressed with its weight:warmth ratio.
The "pond" color is more teal than the blue color in the photo but I still really like it. 6'1" and I wear the large. Fits perfect.
