A waterproof, insulated parka for the streets.
The Norrona Men's /29 Gore-Tex Primaloft Insulated Parka is excellent for the coldest parts of winter so you can comfortably commute to work in the early mornings, pub-hop after a rough work week, or take your family out to see the holiday lights. Its Gore-Tex shell gives this unique parka guaranteed waterproof breathable protection so you don't have to worry about your jacket soaking through during winter storms, and Norrona stuffed this parka with 200g PrimaLoft Sport insulation that's very warm, surprisingly light, and incredibly soft. Because backcountry.com is Norrona's exclusive US retailer, you won't see many others sporting a jacket just like yours.
Norrona made sure all these amazing features fell in with a clean, sleek urban look. This parka has a long cut that offers extended coverage, and its huge hood protects you from the onslaught of snowy weather throughout winter. Not only do the inner gaiters keeps the sleeves in place while you walk down the snowy sidewalks, but they turn into mittens to provide additional warmth when you forget your gloves at home. If that's not enough for your fingers, then stuff them in the fleece-lined hand-warmer pockets for extra warmth. So say goodbye to numb fingers, cold wrists, and wet work clothes because this parka keeps you dry and warm in the cold, wet weather.

Norrona /29 Gore-Tex Primaloft Jacket
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: True to size
This is from Norrona's /29 line which is their casual, everyday clothes, but usually with a bit of a technical outdoor clothing twist to the design. The design is unique and cool.
The fabric was impressive and seems really rugged. I liked all the design details. The silly zipper that goes all the way to the top of the hood, the pockets and zippers, all of which are of metal if I remember correctly.
I had some issues with the main zipper. It was a bit tricky to zip up, partly because it's metal and partly because it's a parka and you have to reach quite far down.
The jacket is very heavy but it will presumably keep you warm.
I really wanted to keep it, but I do not live in an area where it gets cold enough where I could use this often. Winters here are short. If I did live in a place with a long cold winter I probably would've kept it.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
This is a great jacket that will keep you warm and dry no matter what conditions you'll meet.
Excellent parka for a big city
- Fit: True to size
Color caviar looks preferable if worn with a business suit.
The temperature for use 32F (0 C) / 9F (-12.7 C)
My weight - 211 lbs (95.7 kg)
Height - 5'97 (182 centimeters),
Chest - 44 inch (112 centimeters),
Waist - 39 (99),
Hip - 43,5 (110),
Sleeve(from the center of the neck across the elbow to the wrist) - 36 (92)
Sleeve(of dimples on the shoulder through the elbow to the wrist) - 26,5 (67)
Tried size L - fits up against, sit without unfastening the bottom Parks impossible. You can wear a business suit, but it will be difficult to breathe.
As a result, bought XL - fits perfectly, even with a business suit.
Waist drawcord is not needed, since the park is narrow at the bottom and cold air does not pass to the chest.
Sleeves me reach knuckle of the thumb.
Top gloves are built just need to turn in a pocket in these gloves and they will not interfere, but rather help if you forget the gloves.
One pair of outer pockets imeeet warm lining - you can warm your hands.
Very thoughtful tailoring.
Convenient zipper that can be buttoned up to the top of the hood.
Convenient when you want somewhere to sit and relax - you can close the zipper halves to the nose and hood closed bright light outside.
Certainly Norrona - champion quality.
Parka is worth every penny.
Excellent choice for a big city.
Has two jackets Canada Goose.
Norrona washable using special detergents
and Canada Goose - dry clean only.
I'm very sorry it's so late acquainted with the
undisputed leader in the production of high-quality casual
clothes for the city (series Norrona / 29).
Profitable to buy at backcountry.com, than the native site.
Can anyone help in choosing ...
Glad you've read to the end of my review!

Been searching all winter for a new coat and despite the lack of any reviews, thought I would give this one a try. The medium fit my 5-10 170lbs frame fine with a bit of extra space in the shoulders. The build quality is quite nice, not puffy looking at all, but should def do the job for a northeast winter. The jacket has a two way zip but no waist drawstring. The built in mitts are a cool idea, but they do make getting the jacket on and off slightly more cumbersome,and make the cuffs feel a bit scratchy on the wrists due to the seams. The zipper can literally zip all the up through the hood, which I suppose is great for a headless horseman costume come Halloween (?), but I doubt I will use this feature otherwise. It is nice however, to be able to zip up through the jacket hood so only a small area of my face is exposed to the elements on the worst of days. Lots of well placed and functional pockets on inside and outside of jacket. Overall a thumbs up for me.

How warm/puffy is this parka - for example, compared to a Canada Goose Westmount? Also, what is the length (nape to hem) in size M? Thanks!
I finally got to see this today, and it is about 1/2 as "puffy" as the canda goose expedition parka. This is very impressive to look at in the caviar color
I have and this park in size XL and Canada Goose Westmount in size L.
Norrona /29 Gore-Tex Primaloft Insulated Parka suitable for 32F (0 C) / 9F (-12.7 C) ,
and Canada Goose Westmount for lower temperatures 8,5F (-13C) / lower.
